Product Description

Review

This is a very comprehensive and well-arranged reference work which has already taken a permanent place on my shelf of frequently used books. I recommend it strongly.
[refers to 2005 edition]

(Chris Feetenby, Puzzle Meister, The Mail on Sunday)

Worth its weight in gold ... vastly superior to books on similar subjects. This book is a "must" and surpasses any other similar work currently available. I heartily recommend this super book - it contains a wealth of information not easily accessible elsewhere and sets standards which other authors will have to strive very hard to beat.

I was impressed with Chambers Crossword Lists and find it difficult to see how it could be improved very much.

Content much admired. (Tim Moorey, Agony Uncle of the Crossword Club)

...this new edition is certainly a pretty impressive work. (Brian Head, Editor of Crossword magazine)

A comprehensive and clearly-laid out book of lists, especially ideal for themed crosswords, and of great benefit to setters and solvers alike. (Roger Squires, crossword setter)

It looks excellent. Now that it's bigger and clearer, it will probably become more thumbed than the previous one! (Michael Warburton, crossword setter)

This book was purchased to complement another Chambers Crossword publication with the same high expectations. In some respects, it does what it says on the cover, namely providing lists under various headings in an effort to suggest the correct solution. Unfortunately this reference is nowhere near as good as a much older tome in my posession, therefore almost becoming redundant before being used! On the positive side, it is clearly laid out and I suppose there is no such thing as having too many aides for solving the more complex crossword. A useful addition to the bookshelf but hardly the must-have that is suggested by the product overview.

I purchased this to replace my battered prevous edition.This has many more categories and is about as comprehensive as it gets!I think I have spent too long finding all the different parts I just hope I can remember where they all are!

This is a great companion to the Chambers Crossword Dictionary and is easy to use. The layout is extremely helpful and if you can't find what you are looking for under one heading it points you in the direction of associated lists. I have solved a number of cryptic clues with this book particularly with clues where place names,flowers, rivers and places in foreign countries are the answers.

This is an excellent reference book and a must for all crossword solvers and quiz fanatics! I could not live without it in my bookcase! A very useful Christmas or birthday present for friends or relatives. My brother, partner and I all swear by it. The different lists in the book are really amazing - no not amazon but amazing! Not much of a pun I'm afraid! No lists of puns in the book!

Very comrehensive indeed. Easy to locate the subject matter once you have become familiar with the system, which doesn't take long. A worthy purchase.
