The Times How to Crack Cryptic Crosswords
The Times How to Crack Cryptic Crosswords
by Tim Moorey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.49

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide, 17 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I broke down and finally admitted that I needed help with these puzzles. This book is useful primarily for beginners but I, too, am learning a few new tricks from it. I could use more help with finding synonyms and a few explanations of why a certain phrase or word in the clue yields a word that's part of the answer. I can't understand some of the analogies. Still, I keep this book by my side while I'm solving (or trying to) the Cryptic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurray for the Times Cryptic Crossword!, 17 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I waited as long as I could for The Times book 21 (which has just appeared and which I've just ordered). However, I so needed my cryptic crossword "fix" that I ordered this book last month. It has already kept me happily busy and I will keep it "in reserve" when I'm between Times crossword books. I've been doing these puzzles for more than 40 years-- not bad for a Yank! They say crosswords and other puzzles will help stave off Alzheimer's, so these books are good for my health (despite the frequent head-scratching).

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting a Cryptic Crossword "fix", 17 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been hooked on the Cryptic Crossword for decades! Now that I can't access the Times of London on a daily basis, I'm glad to have this convenient way to get at least a sample of these wonderful, aggravating and unique crosswords. Keeps the mind in shape, don't you know!

London Times Cryptic is the *only* crossword! Since I'm across the "Pond" I don't get the daily paper, so it's great to be able to buy the collections on Amazon UK.
