5.0 out of 5 stars Fiendish Anti-senile-dementia fodder, 20 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monkey Puzzles: v. 2 (Guardian) (Paperback)
I started doing Grauniad crosswords back in the early fifties. In the sixties a new phenomenally clever compiler had me and my friends gripped every morning; to the extent that our day's work started late and ended VERY late. I discovered this compilation in June 2011. Now working solo in retirement I find myself constantly amazed at the ingenuity of Araucaria. It is now February 2012 and I am about to start on #85. What other book could give such pleasure at so little cost? There are several puzzles which I have not completed; one or two clues having defeated me. The solutions are there, at the back of the book. It's tempting to take a peek but I'd rather not let Araucaria claim victory in this battle of minds. One word of warning - the puzzles are somewhat English. For Scots, and others possibly, one should note that "church" generally means the Church of England, not the Kirk or Chapel. Likewise there's quite a lot of cricket hidden in words like "deep" and "run". Have fun!
