DESCRIPTION: A hundred 15x15 grids in British symmetrical format. Clues (with letter distribution in brackets as usual but apostrophes aren't distinguished) on left page, grid on right page, and blank "thinking" space under the grid. Answers are at the end of the book, no explanations.

REVIEW SUMMARY: Book 11's a good one in the series, which should entertain you and at times drive you mad. In this one, the clue surface readings are a special joy. As usual they range from ones that cleverly read as mundane to ones that are amusing, groan-worthy or surreal. Work out why trips in the dark fray my trousers, what starts to sob and dribble, how I discover moulding, or which dish requires minced tortoise. #95 is a fine example with almost all its clues being really fun to read. However, after taking Books 1-4 to get used to the compiler's style, I found many of the puzzles between #64-#80 very taxing - I suspect someone else set them. The rest of the puzzles are of a consistent standard, not always so in this series. I'd say the standard is medium difficulty. A few clues I had to leave and revisit much later. Several clues and answers are exact repeats of ones from earlier books. Once or twice you need to realise that a particular puzzle was originally published in the Daily Mail newspaper on a specific date, so as to make sense of "today" in the clue.

BOOK 14: Amazon won't let me post this separately. Don't know why they put my reviews for other Books in the series on Book 14's page! Re Book 14: Consistently good, so far the best (I own the series and look forward to Book 15 being published). A few clues repeat from previous books (#16 has three). There's lots of entertaining surface readings plus some new and clever indicators for the cryptic wordplay e.g.

Another great crossword book. Challenging but not impossible. Just like all the others in the series purchased so far. Will continue to buy more.
