Word lovers won’t be able to resist a challenge like this! It’s a two-for-one puzzlefest, a great big book with both crosswords and cryptograms to keep the solving interesting. The crosswords feature clues in everyday language (not crosswordese) about geography, history, people, and culture, and require finding synonyms, definitions, and more. Cryptic sayings—quotes from the world’s greatest thinkers, writers, and philosophers, all presented in baffling code—will feed any puzzler’s mind. For a higher level of difficulty, try cryptic crosswords: every tricky clue contains into two parts, one with a conventional definition and the other that’s only found with a touch of wordplay.
