As expected, this is exactly what I love. Some clues that take me hours, some that are fun and my favourites, anagrams. I'm happiest when I can spot them straight away, but sometimes I prefer the ones that take me ages and then make me kick myself because they should have been obvious but I've been too thick to spot them sooner. Altogether another excellent collection of crosswords that I would advise everyone to have a go at.....but be warned, one an addict there's no cure!
I was a little concerned about buying a "secondhand" crossword book. But no problem, it was in almost perfect condition. At 1p + plus postage this was excellent an excellent buy. I purchased vol. 2 about a year ago and am getting near to completing it. This book, (Vol. 1) will provide another year of entertainment and some frustration. I am very happy with this vendor.
Great buy. The clues can be very difficult but if you enjoy Cryptic crosswords then this will keep you occupied for a while. Some of the same clues keep cropping up but all in all a very good buy for a decent price.
