Format: Paperback
Merl Reagle reinforces his status as a crossword puzzle master with this
latest anniversary edition. As usual, his colorful puzzles and fun sense of
humor in this collection will tickle you wit. This book delivers a challenge
without the frustration, and I can count on Reagle to provide fair
definitions with clever twists. Also, the paper used for this collection is
thick and does not bleed through to the other side, which I have found to be
an issue with some other crossword books. If you are on the market for
engaging and rewarding crosswords, search no further. Other recommendations for word lovers THE Book of Word Games: Parlett's Guide to 150 Great and Quick-to-Learn Word Games and I recently discovered Upwords - Board Games which is fun, and faster paced than scrabble.

My 95 year old (young) mother loves to keep her mind active. I bought this (hard) crossword puzzle for her for Christmas. She has almost finished it to date (01/05/14) and will be starting another book of puzzles soon. You want hard and difficult? Buy this book.

My husband is a total Merl Reagle addict. Every Sunday, he plows through the newspaper until he finds the big Merl Reagle puzzle and he dives right in. I recently heard an NPR interview with Reagle where the interviewer referenced his paperback puzzle books. It was right before the holidays, so I went onto Amazon, found this, and instantly purchased it as a gift for my husband. And he LOVED it! If you have never done a Reagle puzzle, you are in for a treat - they are clever, smart, and very often humorous. And they are not too obscure - some puzzles drive me crazy because they ask questions that only one in a million could answer. Reagle doesn't do that.

One suggestion: it would be so wonderful if puzzle book publishers used a spiral binding instead of a perfect binding in puzzle books. Then you could open the book wide (like a newspaper) and lay it flat on a table. I would willing pay the cost difference to have that convenience.

This is the 4th collection of Reagle's crosswords that I have purchased. The puzzles in this book are uneven--some impossible and others quite accessible. My 90-year-old mother spends a lot of time on the puzzles and enjoys Merl's wonderful plays on words and phrases. Nearly finished with this book.

It was tough to see where Reagle was going in some of his puzzles; usually I don't have trouble finishing crossword puzzles, but I haven't yet completed a puzzle in this book. Kind of disappointing.

There are only so many Will Shortz collections. Ditto for Leslie Billig's anthologies. Then you're left standing in the puzzle aisle paging through publisher's generic offerings or collections drawn from newspapers that aren't really all that committed to good crossword puzzles. If that's where you find yourself, then Merl Reagle might be your next big thing. These aren't quite as ambitious as some of the Shortz collections, (and sometimes he can get too cute), and they aren't quite as laid back and fun as Billig's, but these are good, solid, honest and fair crosswords at a satisfying level of difficulty and just the right bit of personality. This ended up as a good find for us.

I love Merl Reagle's crosswords. They always challenge me and I truly enjoy his twisted sense of humor.
Don't forget that there's always a clue in the comment at the top.
