One of the nicer things about the puzzles is that, as they are largely visual, your knowledge of the English language doesn't need to be advanced in order to grasp what they are all about. In addition, they could make an ideal way in which to round off any IT instruction class at school or community college level. As one can note from the designated authors, arising as a combined family effort, the puzzles are suitably family-oriented, including content for all age groups. The layout is so easy to follow that even a complete newcomer to the e-world of books will have no difficulty in progressing from puzzle to solution and back.
I used the Kindle app for Windows to read this book, and found it truly user friendly. As an editor, I do most of my work on my laptop in my small den, overlooking our garden and sundry bird, cat and tortoise life, so the medium is most familiar to me. Also as an editor, however, I found that the occasional language slip in the book jarred somewhat, especially taking into consideration that there is relatively little text involved. For instance, "Which watch is working not correctly?" should read "Which watch is not working correctly?" (But then, of course, you've most probably heard the old one of editors being overly picky and anally retentive...).
All in all, though, this book is instructive and fun, deserving a place on any keen puzzler's e-book reader. Can't wait for the next one...
The graphics were very good and I played this version on the iPad3, the Kindle Fire and on my Kindle Keyboard and it worked well on all of the devices. The puzzles are in sharp detail and are tricky questions. This new version of the book features sharper images that are optimized when compared to previous versions of the book and for me this makes the puzzles more fun to play.
Many of the puzzles have a very sly trick in what answer they are looking for. It makes the book interesting, fun and challenging. If you think you are a Rocket Scientist then get this book and enjoy yourself. It is a good way to burn some time and it expands your mind to possibly change the way you look at things. This is a wonderful and entertaining book!
This is the Kindle e-reader version and if you would like you can also get the version designed for HD color tablets like the Kindle Fire or the Amazon reading app on the iPad for example. Here is the link to that book:
103 Puzzle Quizzes HD (Interactive Puzzlebook for Tablets)
I downloaded this book on a day that it was offered for free on Amazon.
The thing I found the most entertaining was going head-to-head with my fiancé as we worked out some of the puzzles together. We both really do enjoy doing puzzles; I prefer logic games and spatial reasoning puzzles while he enjoys number challenges. With all of these combined into one interactive puzzle book, there was something for both of us to do together or by ourselves! This could actually be great family fun as you challenge each other to work out the solutions.
Not sure if this is happening for every tablet, but the only issue I have is that if you select the incorrect answer, and have to hit 'back to the puzzle' it takes you back to the puzzle question prior to the one you incorrectly answered and requires that you have to answer that question again to go forward to the one you answered incorrectly. That is the only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 rating. Other than that glitch, it is a wonderful game especially for my 10" Samsung Tablet! I would highly recommend to puzzle lovers.
The following are some examples: The first, which has one star, indicating it is the easiest, shows a figure and asks what does it mean: is it a barcode, battery, bookshelf, or bug? The fifth, with two stars, shows two triangles, one in the other and 8 numbers. It asks what the ninth number would be. The twenty-fifth has three stars. It shows several series of lines and asks: Which material is hidden in the lines? See my review of the HD model for other examples.
