I was disappointed with this purchase. I am used to the longer Sunday editions of crosswords, so I knew this would be a different sort of diversion. The tear apart pages are convenient and the size of the puzzle is easy on the eyes, but the clues are a little dull, the subjects mundane, and the puzzles themselves cluttered with names instead of word skill clues. I'm goiing back to the Sunday puzzles.

This crossword puzzle book is not for the casual puzzle solver. For experienced solvers this would be a great buy. I would say almost all of the puzzles were very difficult.
