Top critical review
on 5 August 2016
A very mixed bag, some great (Paul, Araucaria of course) some pretty good, some absolutely dismal (Gemini, Enigmatist, the guess-what-I'm-thinking variety), some downright sloppy. When a compiler describes Ontario as a Canadian 'city', it's time to pack up. I bought this mainly for Araucaria's puzzles, which continued to delight to the end. Bunthorne, Rufus and Shed have their moments too. Guardian's identification of the compilers is a good idea. I never quite got to the point of skipping any but did give up on trying to figure out how on earth the clue worked towards the answer with one or two setters.
