5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing not taxing 19 April 2013
By malcolm
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just hard enough for a little mental gymnastics without making you tear your hair out.
Younger people may not identify with clues refering to old politicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get through the day without it 8 Feb 2014
By JBarker
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love these books of telegraph crosswords - and the chance to cheat just a little, if stuck, by checking out a solution or two in the back. I wouldn't be without one of these books and find them very good value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Many feeble clues 4 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nearly every puzzle had several poorly composed clues. Having done Telegraph crosswords for 50 years, I found this lack of "cryptic satisfaction" a disappointment. Each puzzle covered two pages making 200 puzzles take up 464 pages. This makes the book rather bulky for slipping into a coat pocket, especially after some use. I agree with other reviewers that the use of long gone and quite forgotten politicians as clues would be annoying for younger puzzlers, especially in what is purported to be an "All New Big Book of Cryptic Crosswords". My guess is that the Telegraph is pulling out the clues from their massive database, having done away with human compilers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for cryptic crossword lovers. 19 Sep 2013
By PC2
Format:Paperback
This book of crosswords and solutions was all I was expecting. Having the solutions at the back of the book is great, although it does tend to encourage 'cheating'. Delivery was quick.

Brilliant, have not done cryptic puzzles for a long time, really challenging although sometimes ultra vague on how an answer is constructed.
