As always, quick & efficient service and the book arrived in good time & in perfect order. I give 4 stars only out of spite as the puzzles are beyond me, maybe if I was a bit cleverer I'd give it five. Great challenge though, there's an example crossword at the beginning along with an explanation of the code/system of solving the clues to get you started, but there's nothing like the feeling of solving a few tough ones yourself and realising it wasn't that difficult afterall. It'll keep you occupied for hours.
I bought this as a gift for a friend who enjoys doing the Times Crosswords at the weekends. He loved it. Each crossword kept him busy and was a handy companion to take to the beach and/or on trips away. If you or a friend are a fan of crosswords, you can't go far wrong with this book.
Having just finished Cryptic Crossword Book 17, I decided to tackle Number 18. I've only done the first couple but not disappointed. The book, which contains a selection set, in the main, by the same guys who did the previous volume, will now keep me pleasantly occupied for some months. It's also my number one holiday book - beats any number of paperbacks!
