The Times 2 crossword books by John Grimshaw are a wonderful 80 puzzle to a book slice of fun.
You open the book with anticipation knowing you are in for an entertaining and challenging time.

Not as complicated as the Times Cryptic yet not so simple as one you'd find in papers like the Sun, these puzzles require that little bit extra, an education and general knowlege with a bit of luck.

I often find there's a word or term I've never heard of which makes the occasions when I've actually solved the thing so muich more satisfying.

The only danger?
the solutions are at the back so no waiting until the Times is published the folowing day to find out 'where you went wrong'.
As if?

I bought these as an alternative to the Daily Telgraph General knowledge crosswords we usually do. We don't like them as they are fairly simple and quite small which means we complete as much as we can very quickly.

The book was small and perfect for taking with us whilst we went on holiday, and as always with the Time had a great balance between general knowledge and reasoning

I take this book on the plane which helps make the long hours go by more quickly. Then I use it in the holiday flat
when I am lazing on the terrace. My husband helps when I can do no more. We usually finish most of it between us

My father loves to do the Times crossword puzzles but is going away travelling for a few months and was disappointed not to be able to do his crosswords so i purchased these books for his birthday. He was over the moon!

Keeps my wife and I on our toes. A test of general knowledge and word power and highly entertaining. This is the fifth book in the series we have attempted. See how well you can do without Google.

Great, arrived on time and in perfect condition.
I bought this as a gift with two more times 2 crossword books. the person was very happy.
The sixe of the book is great for any bag.

present for somebody else. I am not into crosswords but this person was. he was well pleased and considering I am not into crosswords you cannot fail to get it right with this book

Not the type of Times book I thought I was getting. What I wanted was the version that has anagrams, cryptic and straight crosswords, similar to a times one I had bought from Aldi.
