Review by JoeVaughan
I was very pleased to be notified by Amazon that this book was available. I love cryptic crosswords and I can usually do pretty well with the ones published in the Daily Telegraph. (Not so well with those of the Times). This book will keep me busy for years, there are 240 puzzles. I will alternate solving with other puzzles from various sources. If anyone is reading this and is interested in "puzzles" of any kind, I highly recomment the National Puzzlers League (NPL). You can find them online.I try to do a score with cryptics so that I can see if I am improving. The first one in the book that I tried, I got 57% accuracy. The second one that I tried was better: 87%. Anyway, cryptics are fun.. try them, you will like them.
