Wide-Open Easy Themeless Crosswords: 72 Relaxing Puzzlesby Martin Ashwood-Smith
Casual solvers will love this collection of 72 intriguing crosswords, because it offers them something unique and totally original: a new, brilliantly conceived mix of the challenging and the attainable. What makes the puzzles a little harder than usual? They have what's called a "wide open" style, which means the grids contain very few black squares and the answers tend to be long. As a rule, such puzzles delight only crossword mavens, because the clues can be extremely difficult--as in the Friday examples from the New York Times or Los Angeles Times. But these puzzles break the mold with reader-friendly clues that allow even non-experts to complete an interesting crossword while having fun along the way. There's nothing else like it.
