This review is from: Times Jumbo Cryptic Crossword 11: The world's most challenging cryptic crossword (Crosswords) (Paperback)
This book kept my girlfriend and me happily occupied for hours. The larger format means that some longer answers (eg 23 letters long) are possible, with some ingenious definitions and anagrams of words and expressions. (I just love those multi-word answers!) The occasional answer is easy but most require some lateral thinking. There are a few words we would never get, and sometimes we had to resort to the dictionary to see if the word really exists. Sometimes we got the answer but then had to work out why it was correct, with some tortuous mental gymnastics. If you like cryptic crosswords, we recommend this.
