(I published earlier and slightly different versions of this review on Triond's Quazen website on 8 May 2012 and on May 9 2012 on Expertscolumn)

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.

Puzzles

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:

Counting

A number of puzzles require the solver to count the number of times a given geometrical figure or letter appears in a complex design.

Geometry

Plenty of puzzles present the solver with views of four very similar geometrical figures and ask which one isn't like the others.

Matchsticks

In these puzzles, the solver is presented with matchsticks placed in a geometrical array.

I got this product on my Kindle when it was the WHOLE trilogy for free! I don't always like to spend money on something that I don't really know what it is so this workede out nicely. THe pictures are very nicely detailed and it's just one of those cool things to take in the car that everyone wants to help you solve. It's nice being the kind of center of attention :)

This Puzzle Trilogy of puzzle quizzes is a fun download for the Kindle. I enjoy trying to figure out the different puzzles. The puzzles are good "Brain Teasers" and mind exercises. The puzzles do get harder as you work through the Trilogy.Since there is no time limits, there is just you and the puzzle. 303 puzzles with the answers make a very interesting Kindle game.

These puzzles work great on Kindle for PC, complete with color. I have absolutely no problems and the ability to check your answer quickly is very nice. Eventually, you're bound to get the right answer since I've never seen more than 4 choices! I give it 5 stars for Kindle for PC.

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!

There are some challenges in this book. It has a variety of different brain teasers. Some are fairly easy while some are fairly difficult. I like it because I can keep it on my phone and have something pass the time while waiting for something (e.g. doctor's office, automobile, etc.)

"What number, when you add a quarter of itself, gives fifteen?" Back in 1650BC, the scribe Ahmes commented "This is a really old puzzle". Many puzzle books tend to recycle old problems. Rosa's Puzzles, for example, has mostly 100+ year old puzzles.

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.
