Kahn keeps us entertained by adding Thursday-NYT gimmicks like rebuses, word searches and words running along diagonals. Never fear though, these puzzles are not meant to be hard, not even close to a Thursday NYT. There are 3 grid sizes: 13x13, 15x15 and 17x17. The only complaint I have is that there's only 50 puzzles in the entire book, 10 each for the small and large grids and the rest are the regularly-sized at 15x15. If you solve in order, you feel a little invincible crushing grid by grid. The real fun I encountered is with the 17x17s where Kahn has more room to stretch his imagination. I'll leave it to you to find out what gimmick pangs you with satisfaction.
