This is my 2nd Charles Zimmerman puzzle book and the 2nd one I have hated and I don't think it's me. I consider myself a pretty good average crossword solver and can do many of the NY Times ones but these are horrible! (There are no 'easy' ones for you beginners-it goes straight into 'mildly tricky'). Here is just a sample from puzzle no. 9: First word of Virgil's 'Aeneid'; Legal scholar Guiner; Lash___ of old westerns; etc... I've been doing puzzles long enough to know that these are not the kind of clues I want to see (just who knows the answers??). I don't want to have to use my computer and a few dictionaries to solve a puzzle. I don't mind being challenged and I don't mind not being able to solve every puzzle but this is beyond frustrating. I don't understand why Charles Zimmerman thinks it is okay to use the most obscure words and clues in his puzzles. I hate the beginning of the book so I can only imagine how his 'perplexing' puzzles in the back will be (probably written in Russian or some other language I don't know).
