About this deal

For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. With over 200 perplexing cryptic crosswords, you’ll be thinking sideways, every which way and outside of the box to solve the puzzles in Daily Mail Big Book of Cryptic Crosswords 3. Appearing Monday to Friday in the puzzle pages of Times2, this crossword has a reduced 13x13 grid size and reduced difficulty too, the intention being to encourage people to take their first steps in tackling cryptic crosswords. It’s possibly a bit dry as there are no tutorial puzzles, and quite old now – but I’m sure it could teach a beginner quite a lot. With 100 brainteasing grids to hone your lateral thinking, this book is perfect for banishing boredom at home or on the daily commute.

Providing a unique challenge amongst crosswords, each puzzle has a set of cryptic and coffee-time, quick definition-style clues, so that you can choose either to take your time or to head for the speedy conclusion, with both sets of clues leading to the same answer. A bumper collection of 300 quick crossword puzzles to test your word knowledge and have you reaching for the thesaurus. million readers do the Daily Mail puzzles each day, and the Daily Mail's quick crossword series has sold over 450,000 copies to date. Stimulate your mind and unlock the secrets of the magic world as you embark on this spellbinding journey.

Set yourself the ultimate challenge and test your analytical skills all whilst enjoying hours of puzzling fun in the process! I’m going to start with the devil’s advocate point of view and quote Jonathan Crowther (the Azed setter at the Observer) in his A-Z of crosswords: “in my experience the ability to solve crosswords comes from practice rather than from diligent application to ‘how-to’ books, though these clearly have their place”. The effect of reading it was to clarify what was going on, and to speed up my solving considerably once I understood some aspects of the precision involved in the clues, which I’d not previously appreciated. But written in Australia and based on the rather pedestrian puzzles that seem to dominate the market there.

Fun, fast and furious you will while away the time and give your grey matter an enjoyable workout at the same time.
