I am a true addict. I have tried every book I could find with this type of puzzle. If you don't have any experience with pixel puzzles, this book would be a great place to start. The puzzles start out very easy and get more difficult as you go. The puzzles in this book are more challenging and interesting than the Games Magazine Paint by Numbers book, but not nearly as challenging as Perplexing Pixel Puzzles or Mind Sharpening Pixel Puzzles (the best of the bunch). If I wasn't already spoiled by the two Pixel Puzzle books, I would have easily given this book 5 stars.
The paper quality of this book is much better than the Nonograms book. A sharp pencil won't poke through the page and you can erase easily. The binding fell apart though because the pages don't lie flat. Spiral bound books (like the Pixel Puzzle books)are much better for this type of puzzle. I didn't mind too much though, because I can put a few loose pages in my travel bag for a quick diversion while waiting in the airport. These puzzles always attract the curiosity of flight attendants and other passengers on planes.
If you already know you like this type of puzzle, then I would recommend Mind Sharpening Pixel Puzzles and Perplexing Pixel Puzzles. They are much more challenging and you'll get many, many more hours of solving fun for less money.
I like the fact that you are rewarded with a picture if you do the puzzle correctly. If you get off track you may end up with a three-legged horse, and you have to go back and find your mistake......but that is the fun of it.
The paper is of good quality as evidenced by the fact that we have erased them over and over so we could do them again and again. WONDERFUL BOOK! VERY ADDICTING!
The book offers a brief introduction & sample puzzle. From there it's puzzle after puzzle. If you love these puzzles, you can't go wrong with this book.
I found myself staying awake late at night doing the puzzles. I would do them on breaks at work and on my lunch. I would reward myself with a puzzle if I cleaned the kitchen or did another chore. I am a morning person and usually alseep by 10:30 pm. But not with this book around. I would find myself finishing one up and then saying to myself that I would just start another one. But then I would finish that one and so on.
I completed the book under three weeks. I can't wait for Kathy to come out with a new one. Although my husband can. I think I drove him crazy, the book became our form of birth control.
I have gotten two of my friends to buy the book and now they are hooked.
I need the next edition and fast or I could go through withdrawls.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to conquer a puzzle, have fun in the process and feel rewarded in the end.
Thanks- Jan Kilfoyle
There are some drawbacks:
The binding fell apart pretty quickly. Also, the puzzles are very easy...so this is really good for beginners, not for experts. The book walks you through solving technique, then puzzles start out small and get larger as you progress.
Overall, it's a good buy if you are a novice and are gentle on your things.
