Disclaimer: at my own request, Chloe Moss, on behalf of Carlton Books, sent these to me to review. What follows constitutes my own opinion.
Three things I admire are common sense, logic, and a good sense of humour in people. But when paired in a book? I love it.
These two books were sent to me; they are riddles and brainteasers-as you can see from the above photos-which are Mensa-esque. I’m not sure if the actual organisation had any say in the development or formation of this book; needless to say, as I rarely understood the puzzles, I have come to the conclusion that I’m simply not clever enough for this organisation.
I really liked this product, as it had quite a simple layout, which ‘spoke to me’ as a reader. As a paperback, it is also small enough just to fit into your bag. For any long haul flight-I wish I had had this going to the US-this is perfect, because it would keep you occupied. There’s also solutions in the back, so you’re not banging your head in frustration.
I really liked that this package arrived with a personalised note-as I’ve said before, I’m all for a brand that makes this effort-and that there was not a lot of packaging for these books. (There was a package of four!)
Maybe there could have been far easier puzzles? I understood maybe one out of the two books!
