Not recommended. The first thing to say is that it is not ‘Advanced’: most of the puzzles are fairly simple by comparison with other books. Against this, it is in American English, with American spellings (‘ozonizing’ [9], ‘pajamas’ [14], ‘enamor’ [48]) and American diction (‘hoe cakes’ [10], ‘parlor car’ [41], ‘simoleons’ [94]). The vocabulary used ranges from the archaic and specialised (‘Hetaera’ – a Greek prostitute – [8], ‘quotha’ [9], ‘Alula’ – projection on bird’s wing – [20]) to slang and abbreviations ( ‘perv’ [24], ‘incog’ [93], ‘a one’ [68, 99]. At the same time, there is a great deal of repetition: I lost count of the number of times words such as ‘flux’, ketch’, ‘sloppy joe’, ‘quiz’, ‘jumpy’ occurred to incorporate little-used letters. The compiler has included names, generally of famous people, but not always (‘Edwards’ [65], ‘Franz’ [79], ‘Hogan’ [87]), and also words in foreign languages that may be more or less recogniseable (‘kvetch’ [47], ‘dengue’ [69], ‘poilu’ [95]). On a practical detail, the numbers in the puzzle squares are in a font just too small to be easily distinguishable. Only buy if you have exhausted all other publications.

I love Codewords and looked forward to a more challenging puzzle book. However, I was instantly irritated by the way the given letters were put on the page - why not just put them in the list of numbers?? The 2nd thing to be aware of is, that there are a lot of American-spelt words, which can be quite confusing for English spellers! So, challenging is the word for this collection!!

I came on here to write a warning review to potential buyers that this is an American edition - but I see two reviewers have already done this. The inclusion of proper nouns is ok, but they should warn readers - the Daily Telegraph codewords does just that. However, I wasn't prepared for the use of American words, let alone American spellings, which makes it rather annoying when trying to complete the puzzles - unless you are American of course. Ridiculous words are also used, with some bizarre spellings that I don't even think are American ones. It's a shame, as otherwise, once you get the hang of them, they are quite good puzzles. But I won't be buying another edition if there ever is one.

Probably not quite five star but I wanted to counteract the one star rating. I find I can romp through most code word puzzles too quickly so, as an Englishwoman, tackling a puzzle that has proper nouns, phrases, American spellings and slang in it gives me something to get my teeth into. Iwo Jima is, of course a perfectly proper noun. Exhilarating and satisfying.

Unfortunatley this version is not listed as printed in America, if it had been I would have known to stear clear, as an Englishwoman, I know, I would have been upset by the Americanisms of our English Language. However I bought this copy,in high hopes of an Advanced version. The very first codeword, includeds a none existant word "iwojima", this bodes ill for further pages and unfortunately obscure American military slang is used in the 2nd page, I always dislike slang words used in word knowledge games anyway. Resorting to infilling spaces on the grid that make up none existant words is disgracfull and an insult to the very concept of testing ones Word Knowledge. a very disppointing version that I can not recommend at all.

disappointing, simply because some of the words, and expressions are American. It would be excellent if I shared that nationality, but without that puzzlers get led up some blind alleys!

I have enjoyed doing Codewords for many years and this edition by JS Lubandi is pretty taxing - not for the faint-hearted!
