The Wild Crossword book was just about what I was hoping for. The puzzles are challenging for me - my level of comfort is with NY Times Wednesday/Thursday puzzles - and with a sufficient variation in level of challenge to keep things interesting. Hidden themes were sometimes obscure, but I guess that's a part of it.

As I've said about other collections, it's typical Will Shortz: Clever puzzles that WILL cause you to smile when you pick up on some of the themes. Will Shortz' genius lies in his trusting his contributors and not "adding salt to the soup" when it's not needed. Mr. Shortz is almost singlehandedly responsible for the clever, witty, fun crossword, but if you didn't already know that you'd not be reading this review!!

This book is exactly the level of puzzles that I was hoping to find when I purchased it; not too hard, not too easy.

Will Shortz's clever editing skills shine in this collection of medium-difficulty puzzles. They are just hard enough to challenge me, but not so obscure that they take an inordinate amount of time to solve. I am enjoying the book enormously and hope that Shortz has produced other books in a similar vein.

I had previously purchased the Easy crossword book, I believe it was the Lazy Sunday book, and pretty easily finished the majority of the puzzles in one go through. I decided to get this for my girlfriend as a step up from the previous book, thinking it would be slightly more challenging. These puzzles are far more challenging than I was expecting. I'm no crossword pro and I like to think I can handle my share of crosswords, but I can go pages through this book without being able to complete more than a few clues.
Definitely a challenging book!

To me, these are NOT "medium" difficulty. These are "hard", at least, for a normal, intelligent person and not a pro.

Very pleasurable. I can solve these puzzles without resorting to reference works, so I would put them at the Wednesday level of the NYT. Thursday puzzles sometimes stump me, and Fridays and Saturdays are usually beyond me, so this book gives me just the right challenge at the end of the week!

Too many questions involving two or more words and about names of people, even a puzzle with a number of deliberately misspelled words and another with some clues almost non-existent. I think I should have gone for a Tuesday book.
