In most of the book’s crosswords the majority of the clues are some sort of irrelevant or incoherent pun or wordplay sentences, some ridiculously lengthy, while the small number of straight clues do not enable one even to start figuring out such meaningless sentences. Quite a lot of entries try to replicate not only everyday colloquial language, but urban slang, with some entries not even found in the Urban Dictionary, but they must exist in the creator’s mind! While the majority of the clues are pointless, many hinting at some character on a TV show, movie, play, novel, sports team, etc., and their relatives or even their exes, it is the plethora of clumsily made-up, meaningless sentences that destine this book for the wastebasket.
I'm generally pleased with this book. The only criticism I'd offer is that some of the puzzles are missing cryptic clues -- I'm used to the Sunday crosswords having a few long brain-teaser phrases related to that week's theme. Some of the early puzzles in this book are missing them, perhaps because they're supposed to start easy. Still, there are many tricky shorter clues that are challenging.
All in all, I'd recommend this.
They are fantastic,
