Another excellent book in the New York Times acrostic series. These originally appeared in the Times between June 2003 and May 2005. So if you were doing the puzzles then they may be old ones for you. Cox and Rathvon are terrific puzzle creators, surpassing Thomas Middleton, in my view. Their puzzles are subtly thematic, which adds a good deal to the enjoyment of solving.

I'm starting to like acrostics better than crosswords. I can see myself getting better at it and it makes me feel so smart!

I really wanted to enjoy this puzzle book. I was super excited for it to come since I loved acrostics I've done in the past. However these I REALLY didn't like. I felt the hints were really obscure at times and the quotes that the puzzles where supposed to make in the end didn't make much sense due to the fact there were a lot of "…" within the quote. For example "Camp mocks bad taste; kitsch exploits it… Mae West, whose… provocative delivery, eye-rolling, lip-pursing, and pelvic tics parody the conventional invitation to dalliance, is never out of control and is camp, pure and simple."

I don't see how someone who is unfamiliar with the quote could ever figure most of that out… and when I do acrostics I like going back and forth from the hints to the quote to see if I can use the quote to figure out the answer to the hints. That only works if the quote is something coherent when you read it… maybe I'll try going back to the book someday and figure out some more of the puzzles but right now I just feel sad it wasn't what I expected.

Knowing what to expect, I was satisfied with this book. It isn't the most challenging series but those are no longer available

Oh, you people that would want this book know who you are! It's hard to find acrostic puzzles that aren't "British" and too unfamiliar to us Americans, so this collection hits the nail on the head. I was grateful for the spiral binding, too, because it's difficult to fight the pages squeezing shut while you're having enough of a challenge trying to figure out the clues. I thank you; my carpal tunnel syndrome thanks you...

I have been doing acrostics for many years, but it is very difficult to find new books lately. They take a lot of research but are very satisfying. The new acrostic book is excellent and I have a hard time restricting myself to just one a day, since after I have completed 50 puzzles, there are no more in sight.

Our newspaper quit publishing the acrostic puzzles which we had enjoyed doing so much. I ordered the New York Times Acrostic Puzzles Volume 11 and we love it. As soon as we finish doing one puzzle, we start the next one.

I find this book an enjoyable challenge -- I've purchased the books with "Mensa" in their title over the years -- but this one has been far more difficult. Once I finish one, it's a "challenge" to put the book down.
