I was thrilled to find this new Times2 Crossword book and I was not disappointed. Same top quality puzzles from John Grimshaw and a few others without having to wait for the Saturday Times to arrive! There is a freshness to the content. Marvellous stuff for all Times2 fans.

Enjoy crosswords and find these general knowledge quizes both stimulating and enjoyable.My husband and I take it in turns to attempt each puzzle and try to beat each other by seeing who can complete most of the puzzle before handing over to the other.
These Times 2 Jumbo Crosswords are excellent. Each one is very large and relies on a fairly extensive general knowledge. They're not quick crosswords but they are most enjoyable and do make you scour the remotest regions of your brain for obscure facts. As with some of the other Times 2 crossword books, I've found myself buying this title twice over. With a few years between, you're unlikely to recall any of the clues! I have tried The Daily Telegraph General Knowledge Crossword books as an alternative but not nearly as keen on those - the regular paperback sized format is perhaps easier to tote around but the print is very tiny, the grid numbers barely discernible and the paper is very low grade. Times 2 Jumbo Crosswords really are the Rolls Royce of the general knowledge crossword book - quite simply better than the rest.

Excellent, reinstores my faith in myself as I attempt these. It's more question-friendly than book 4 was. So enjoyable but mind stretching I've bought another two for gifts.
