This is my review of "Weekend in the Country Crossword Puzzles."

When I retired three years ago after 45 years of working, I got serious with solving crossword puzzles. From my local newspaper I solve five easy puzzles every week, along with three large, complex puzzles. I save extras of the complex ones to work on again in three or four months.

But it's never enough puzzles! So, I buy puzzle books now. Not just ANY puzzle books, either! Will Shortz has provided us with many wonderful crossword puzzles in The New York Times as well as in books that we can buy and take on trips with us. So it is with me! I have two of his special crossword books and the latest one is "Weekend in the Country Crossword Puzzles" published by The New York Times. There are 200 puzzles in this book. It is filled with a variety of puzzles according to their difficulty in solving. The categories are keyed with stars. The "Monday" puzzles are the easiest with one star. "Tuesday" puzzles are keyed with two stars--Wednesday, 3 stars, Thursday, 4 stars, Friday, 5 stars, and finally on Saturday, 6 stars. And yes, the 6-star puzzles are really hard to solve.

I highly recommend this crossword puzzle book to all serious and not-so-serious crossword puzzlers out there.

Not as enjoyable as other NY Times crossword puzzles. Several puzzles were misprinted and solutions did not match. The difficult puzzles were much too difficult and inappropriate for "Weekend in the Country" activity.

I'm on the 8th puzzle and have found a few errors in this book. Hopefully that is just at the beginning.
