5.0 out of 5 stars Better than in-flight movies 22 May 2014

I've used Times Cryptic Crossword compilations before to while away flight times, and this one was used during a couple of long flights to and from Las Vegas. These puzzles have the solutions in the back so you can take a peek if you get stuck, plus there's a worked example at the front if you need some help to get started.

This is an inexpensive way to get to know the best cryptic crosswords in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have used these books for years 17 Oct 2013

Because, as most crossword buffs would generally agree, the Times Crossword Puzzle is the best of the daily newspaper crossword puzzles, and has been years. I have been doing it every days for years. These books of selected, back-issue puzzles are ideal for travelling, or when having to wait for a medical or dental appointment.

See my comments on 14 and 15. I haven't started this yet, but too many of the answers will require outrageous mental links as setters think that pretentiousness is the same as wit and lexical brilliance. I know they are Times crosswords, but to produce an excellent crossword is very difficult and labour intensive, and some are substandard. A setter should never waste a puzzlers time with eccentric clues: those who do should be prosecuted.

If you are addicted to cryptic crosswords, what better than 80 Times crosswords? It certainly helps to keep the old brain ticking over.

How dreadfully dull "The Times" crosswords have become. Clues that once had wit and invention and were a delight to solve - or to discover the answers if unsolved - are now wholly unsatisfying. Upon a time it was worth buying the paper for the crossword alone. Sadly no longer so. Akenside RIP.
