    5.0 out of 5 stars A great kindle puzzle book 29 May 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I love puzzles and had this kindle book recommended to me by a friend.

    It's very easy and intuitive to use. There is a contents page at the beginning of each of the three sections that makes it easy to navigate, as well as a link to the respective answer page (with an explanation where appropriate) on each puzzle page. One just has to be careful not to hit 'next page' when on the answers rather than the questions.

    I have an e-ink kindle but I can imagine that on the kindle fire the colour would make it look more visually stimulating. Of course, the puzzles are such that they do not need to be in colour in order to puzzle them out.

    The puzzles themselves include logical/systematic approaches, visualisation of 3-d objects/folding nets, sequence/creative pattern spotting, mathematical approaches (areas of simple shapes - triangles, circles, etc.) and more.

    Some of the puzzles may be trivial to those above school age, particularly the puzzles that are similar in style to previous puzzles in the book; however, I feel that this is part of the 'range of difficulty'. They are fun to do on a journey or a lazy evening, and I find that I do get some of them wrong on the first pass.

    Overall, for the price of the book (£3.93 at the time of writing) and the number of puzzles, it's well worth it for the hours of puzzling time I've had out of it - and still have to go. I would recommend it to others and am keen to investigate other puzzle books by this family.

    4.0 out of 5 stars 303 Puzzles - Kindle 25 April 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    My 6 year old loved this and enjoyed the Kindle format (on a tablet though - wouldn't work so well in monochrome). It encouraged thinking in both parent and child in terms of maths, spacial and lateral thinking puzzles. Many puzzles, however, are quite similar and there are no logic or word problems. Some puzzles are a little tedious especially after the first incarnation. I would say my 6 year old could do about 50% of the puzzles without help. Even if you're not inclined to cheat, one can inadvertently view that answer just by getting the puzzle wrong a few times. There are a few face-palm moments when the solution is revealed but there might be more value in those jumbo puzzle books that you find in overstock bookshops.

THe pictures are very nicely detailed and it's just one of those cool things to take in the car that everyone wants to help you solve. It's nice being the kind of center of attention :)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Review: Trilogy 303 Puzzle Quizzes by the Grabarchuk Family 17 May 2012
    By Mark G. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    (I published earlier and slightly different versions of this review on Triond's Quazen website on 8 May 2012 and on May 9 2012 on Expertscolumn)

    The members of the Grabarchuk family, for those unfamiliar with them, make puzzles for Puzzles.com. "Trilogy 303 Puzzle Quizzes" collects into one omnibus volume their three previous Kindle books : "Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)," "Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)" and "Puzzlebook: 102 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)." The puzzles are colorful, geometric and ingenious.

    Puzzles

    The puzzles are indeed colorful. Most of the puzzles are graphic and geometric, so color helps the solver visualize. Moreover, color gives the puzzle creator an additional tool. The 19th century puzzler Sam Loyd once wrote: "By giving no two pieces the same shape, other ways of doing the puzzle are prevented, and the feat is more difficult of accomplishment." Similarly, giving the pieces of a geometrical puzzle different colors and then making the solution depend on putting the right colors together offers another way for a puzzle creator to make a puzzle with a unique solution.

    The Grabarchuks' collection is varied, but the puzzles fall into a number of types. Here are descriptions of a few to give readers a taste:

    Counting

    A number of puzzles require the solver to count the number of times a given geometrical figure or letter appears in a complex design.

    Geometry

    Plenty of puzzles present the solver with views of four very similar geometrical figures and ask which one isn't like the others.

    Matchsticks

    In these puzzles, the solver is presented with matchsticks placed in a geometrical array. The puzzle is to remove as few as matchsticks possible to change the diagram in some way.

    Coins

    The solver is asked how many ways there are to form a geometric figure, say a square or an equilateral triangle, by placing coins on the vertices of a geometric figure.

    Double Letters

    The solver is presented with a number of pairs of double letters. To solve the puzzle, the letters must be arranged--with a few overlapped--to form a word. A semantic clue is also given.

    Viewing

    I read plenty of Kindle books, but I don't have a Kindle. I used to read with Kindle for PC, but I switched to the Kindle Cloud Reader and have never gone back. Using Kindle Cloud Reader, I worked through these puzzles on a large laptop PC with a 17" diagonal screen. A brief note below the copyright notice in "Trilogy 303 Puzzle Quizzes" explains how this collection may best be viewed:

    Optimized for 3rd font size; "sans serif" typeface; "medium" line spacing; "default" words per line; and "portrait" screen rotation.

    The settings I used were nothing like the recommendations. I prefer large letters, wide margins and sepia pages. I didn't find my unusual choices interfered with my enjoyment of the puzzle collection.

    Navigation

    Each volume has a visual table of contents. Puzzle elements are used as icons. To go to a puzzle, click on the icon. Below each icon is a descriptive title. For example, the first puzzle in the collection has an icon of yellow arrows on a white field. The arrows point in different directions. The name of the puzzle is "Nine Arrows." Thus, the solver has a visual and verbal hint about what the puzzle is like.

    It is not necessary to go to the page of icons to move from puzzle to puzzle. You can also move through the book by clicking on answers. The puzzles are multiple choice with two to four answers for each puzzle. To select an answer, the solver clicks a button. If the answer the solver selects is incorrect, the button leads him to a page with the emoticon ;( and the message "Your answer is incorrect. Please try again." Below the statement is a button marked Return to puzzle. If the answer is correct, the button takes the solver to a page where the solution is shown. This page has two buttons: Back to Puzzle and Next Puzzle. To skip a puzzle, simply click on the right arrow to go to the next one.

    The puzzles in each volume are numbered and rated as to difficulty with one to five stars. Easier puzzles come first. At the end of volumes one and two is a five star puzzle. Solving that puzzle correctly takes you to an answer page with Back to Puzzle and Next Puzzle buttons. Clicking Next Puzzle takes you to the first puzzle of the next volume. The end of volume three doesn't work the same way. The answer page for the last five star puzzle in the collection has no Next Puzzle button, and absentminded solvers who click the right arrow on the screen to move along will go to the section of "Wrong Answer" pages. This was the only problem with navigation I found.

    Recommendation

    I recommend buying this volume if you enjoy working geometric and logic puzzles. I worked through this puzzle collection in less than a month. There are more than 300 in the collection, so I have to admit to an addiction to these puzzles. I'm looking forward to purchasing the fourth volume in the series, which the Grabarchuk family recently released.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun! 20 Mar 2012
    By Amitabh Mukherjee - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The puzzlebook was available for free for a limited number of days. I was fortunate to pick this up then. I absolutely love the puzzles. All the puzzles are rated as per perceived difficulty. The solution is not visible when you click on the wrong answer - that is good. My 11 year old son and I often do the puzzles together. We just love these. All the puzzles we have attempted so far are unique (in the sense that I have not come across these before). I have not yet finished the book, but I would recommend this to everyone, not just those who love puzzles, even if it is no longer available for free.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of new puzzles 29 Feb 2012
    By Ed Pegg - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    "What number, when you add a quarter of itself, gives fifteen?" Back in 1650BC, the scribe Ahmes commented "This is a really old puzzle". Many puzzle books tend to recycle old problems. Rosa's Puzzles, for example, has mostly 100+ year old puzzles.

    The Grabarchuk family has creative talent that puzzle book collectors crave. The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers is the best puzzle book of the last decade. The Grabarchuks also wrote New Puzzle Classics and Modern Classic Puzzles for Mensa, and LetsTans, Cut The Shapes, and Strimko for Kindle apps.

    This is a collection of their Puzzlebook series, with 100, 101, and 102 puzzle quizzes, all collected together. All are beautifully presented, and will give your brain a workout. Most of them deal with shapes of some sort. At the start, the puzzles are rated (*) and tend to be easy, but the (*****) challenges at the back of each book are tough.

    This large collection will last for awhile for anyone. You won't find old, old problems here. Highly recommended.
