I worked the puzzles on a Kindle Paperwhite e-ink reader. The graphics are monochrome, but otherwise it's almost identical to the Kindle Fire HD version. I take my Kindle with me whenever I'm going to have to wait somewhere (doctor, dentist, car repair, etc.) and I often end up working Puzzlebook brainteasers that I haven't solved already. (Note: I keep a little notepad and a pencil handy, since they're helpful for solving some of the puzzles.)
If you've worked Puzzlebooks before, you pretty much know what to expect with 103 Puzzle Quizzes. If you haven't tried a Puzzlebook, and you enjoy logic games, you owe it to yourself to try one.
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.
The pleasure of working these puzzle quizzes is the creative way in which the puzzles AND the information offered when choices are made (pop-up dictionary definitions that help the astute observer) are presented. The puzzles test visual perception, space planning, recognition of numbers and sizes of spaces, determining equal/unequal length, and many other twists and turns that keep the viewer and player on his toes. Don't be surprised if your young friends can master these skills quickly (they seem to have an affinity for these visual conundrums probably due in part to their use of video games). But don't let that deter the older set of players. These challenge mental capacity while providing endless hours of entertainment. And the fact that hey can be downloaded onto the computer or other forms of the ether network system means they are portable.
These puzzles - and especially this latest version - are the most inexpensive investment in both mental health and entertainment for the road or the armchair. And they just get better with each new release, Grady Harp, March 13
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?Read more ›
