The members of the Grabarchuk family, for those unfamiliar with them, make puzzles for Puzzles.com. "Trilogy 303 Puzzle Quizzes" collects into one omnibus volume their three previous Kindle books : "Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)," "Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)" and "Puzzlebook: 102 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!)." The puzzles are colorful, geometric and ingenious.
The puzzles are indeed colorful. Most of the puzzles are graphic and geometric, so color helps the solver visualize. Moreover, color gives the puzzle creator an additional tool. The 19th century puzzler Sam Loyd once wrote: "By giving no two pieces the same shape, other ways of doing the puzzle are prevented, and the feat is more difficult of accomplishment." Similarly, giving the pieces of a geometrical puzzle different colors and then making the solution depend on putting the right colors together offers another way for a puzzle creator to make a puzzle with a unique solution.
The Grabarchuks' collection is varied, but the puzzles fall into a number of types. Here are descriptions of a few to give readers a taste:
A number of puzzles require the solver to count the number of times a given geometrical figure or letter appears in a complex design.
Plenty of puzzles present the solver with views of four very similar geometrical figures and ask which one isn't like the others.
In these puzzles, the solver is presented with matchsticks placed in a geometrical array.Read more ›
However, it's not as good on the true Kindle. I don't mind that it doesn't have color. That's expected for that model of kindle. However, there is a problem with the book that causes me to drop my rating for true kindle to 3 stars. There are many cases where you suddenly get superimposed images! You are seeing 2 pages at the same time! It's random and intermittent but it does happen.
I spot a message in my library last night that there was an update available so I held off this review until I could check to see if this problem still occurs. Yes, it does. The update did not fix this problem.
My rating of 4 stars is the average -- 5 stars for Kindle for PC and 3 stars for Kindle!
Please fix this book. It can be very difficult to answer a puzzle if you have to figure out what is that puzzle and what is another page or figure out the explanation of the answer for the same reason - another image with it!
The Grabarchuk family has creative talent that puzzle book collectors crave. The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers is the best puzzle book of the last decade. The Grabarchuks also wrote New Puzzle Classics and Modern Classic Puzzles for Mensa, and LetsTans, Cut The Shapes, and Strimko for Kindle apps.
This is a collection of their Puzzlebook series, with 100, 101, and 102 puzzle quizzes, all collected together. All are beautifully presented, and will give your brain a workout.Read more ›

When using on a Kindle Fire....type and answer selections are so small they can't be read (and don't expand). Waste of time and money, Beware the Grabarchuk's books.Published on November 21, 2013 by JRP
