It's got crosswords in it....
on 20 August 2013
How do you review a crossword book? Presumably, if you were looking for crosswords and the book was full of cartoons then you'd be pretty disappointed. And I guess, if you were looking for cartoons and discovered it was full of crosswords you'd also be pretty disappointed (but you'd also have proved yourself to be pretty stupid and therefore your opinion wouldn't matter to anyone).
Happily, I wanted crosswords. I specifically wanted cryptic crosswords. And I wanted them to be compiled by the people who compile The Daily Telegraph cryptic crosswords.
Against these criteria, the book scores three for three. Therefore, I am a cartoon-free happy bunny and the book gets five stars....
