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.

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.

Really good book of nicely-challenging cryptic crosswords; a convenient size to carry on a bus or train in a bag though might be a little bulky in your pocket.
