5.0 out of 5 stars What Fun! 1 July 2013
By LaRubia - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was drawn to this because of the great price, but I got the bonus of puzzles I knew for sure I hadn't done, as the book's from 1989.

I was very curious about what would constitute a "used" crossword-puzzle book. The only evidence I've found of that is the five or six (of 200) puzzles that were started, all by what seems to be the same person, all in ink. Each of them has no more than a dozen or so squares filled in. (Was it a man or a woman? What happened to them? How did the book end up at the used-book vendor?)

These are witty and challenging as only The Sunday Times puzzles can be. They are also a reminder of how much cultural references have changed in a short time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Watch those dates! 9 July 2013
By NewDiane - Published on
This collection was published in 1989, but the puzzles themselves date from 1972 through 1975. This means that cultural references (Afro hairdos), slang (happening) and politics are all from that era. Does anyone even remember Bella Abzug today? However, the puzzles are witty and well-edited. If you grew up during that era and have a retentive memory, this collection of 200 crossword puzzles is priced nicely and very entertaining - newer collections of only 100 puzzles cost more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 13 Jun 2011

Philippine bookstores hardly sell crossword puzzles anymore. Everything has been about sudoku. So this omnibus has been a very appreciated gift.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Large Print 5 Jan 2011
By Arby - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this for my wife, who loves crosswords but is beginning to have issues with presbyopia. The one-star rating is not so much a damnation for the book itself, but for the fact that Amazon advertises it as "Large Print". To my 50-year-old eyes (and to those of my wife), the print in this book is far from large. Nowhere on the cover or anywhere else in the book does it claim to be a large print edition.

It may be a fine collection of puzzles, but don't be swayed into a purchase by the promise of easy-to-read pages. That is misleading.
