Book Description

Dec 1999 Random House Crostics (Book 4)
The next set of fifty quotation puzzles by master of the genre Michael Ashley. Each of his puzzles is always poignant or funny -- or both! Since so few books of crostics puzzles are produced, voracious crostics fans (and there are no other kind) eagerly anticipate each new volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and witty quotes - good for hours of fun. 3 April 1999

I started "playing" with crostics in Games magazine a number of years ago and was delighted to have this puzzler recognized by Random House in volumes. Hope this Volume 3 is soon followed by another volume of fun although would also like to see a return to the original 60 games.

These volumes are great fun. I find the ones that are modern music difficult but usually can work them out.

4.0 out of 5 stars LITTLE BIT OF A LETDOWN 26 Jan 2001
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Michael Ashley's previous four volumes of crostics were exceptionally good and fun to solve. Michael has given us crostics that don't rely on ridiculously esoteric clues, such as quotes from Shakespeare, unheard of islands, etc. Instead, Ashley uses contemporary clues to solve his puzzles. He also doesn't quote from stuffy writers, etc.
However, in this edition, he starts to show a little bit of that "traditional" clue giving, and is not as imaginative as in his previous volumes.
Still, he's head and shoulders above the rest, and I look forward to his future editions.
Crostic lovers should check out Peter Scher's "Cinema Crostics" for some really fun puzzles!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crostic Lovers -- check this out! 19 May 2003
By A. Lai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
Fun and challenging crostics. The puzzles in this book are rated as medium difficulty, with the style halfway between "middle of the road" and "contemporary" (via the "Random House PuzzleMeter"). Nice size with steel spiral spring binding. Pages are good-quality paper that accepts pencil well, yet erases easily and cleanly.

This is one of the best collection of acrostic puzzles I have found. Not too easy, not too hard, and the clues are varied and imaginative. And, important for someone my age, the type is big enough to see. The quotes are clever, also varied, and worth the effort to uncover them.

A BETTER QUALITY PAPER, THAT IS, WHITER, WOULD MAKE THESE PUZZLES EASIER TO READ. A LITTLE MORE HUMOR WOULD MAKE THEM FIRST RATE.
