Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The hardest puzzles in the book were satisfyingly challenging but there weren't nearly enough of them. Why do these types of books seem to always have different levels in them, even if the book is labeled "killer"? They need to make some books with just the hardest level puzzles in them. I guess that's what I get for ordering the book online without being able to thumb through it first.
"Killer" suggested to me it would be more challenging, but it was just another book of KenKen puzzles.
