This book is yet another in the excellent range of Killer Sudoku Books - as usual, it is great fun: as a seasoned sudoku player, however, I would prefer fewer of the 'moderate' puzzles, which I find too easy: I'm sure that most of us who get to book 5, are well practised in doing them and probably feel the same.

By R. J. Hole VINE VOICE on 28 Nov. 2009
Format: Paperback
150 puzzles in the hardest Times collection so far. There are 10 Moderate, 10 Tricky, 30 Tough, and 100 Deadly with the Deadlies having target times between 1 hour and 2 hours 25 minutes. The one negative is that there are too many puzzles that get skipped. A "Moderate" puzzle means too easy to waste time on to people who get their fun with Deadly puzzles.

If you want to make things more difficult you might be able to do what I did. I had always been more attracted to Killer than normal Su Doku. I decided it was about time I learnt how to solve normal Su Doku properly. I bought Fiendish Su Doku and worked my way through it, with a few false starts as I learnt how to break through my usual stumbling blocks. Then I bought Fiendish Su Doku 2 and worked through that too. When I went back to Killer I found I was struggling to find my solving skills with this book (ignoring the easy puzzles). In theory the new skills learnt with normal Su Doku should have helped but I had forgotten some of the various ways of solving Killers. I get there in the end but with much longer solving times than previously.

I'd never written down the techniques I used for Killers. Didn't think I needed to. But I now realise there are so many techniques that can be used on Killers that an extended distraction on Su Doku makes it difficult to remember them all, or to be able to intuit the right one to use at any particular moment.

Oh well, the book is more bangs for my bucks now!

Times Killer Sudoku No 5 is the 3rd book I have bought. I would have liked more "Tough" sheets in the book, hence the dropped star. Anyone who hasn't tried these puzzles to test their brains is really missing out. I will probably buy another No 6 when I have finished this one.

I had reached a plateau in solving killer puzzles, but this has helped me to move on. It does not warn you in advance though, that it contains a much higher proportion of "Deadly" category puzzles

I bought this book for my fiance who is addicted to Sudoku ... the harder the better!
It seems to have done the job because he is struggling with them, much to my delight. :-)

Perhaps I should have realised that a nearly new Su Doku book not might be a wise option but this one was more than half filled in....
