Love the Timmerman crossword books
Reviewed in the United States on November 8, 2020
The operative words here are EASY and LARGE PRINT. I've completed 3 books since Covid-19 began and am working on #4. I wanted something to challenge mind and memory some, and of readable print size. Timmerman crossword books meet those requirements. I'd give these books ten stars if possible. :-}
01/26/2021 update. I've been intending to write this for several weeks. Reading other reviews of unhappy people I wonder what in the world happened. This is the fourth Timmerman book. My comment was going to the the clue "King dog" Puzzle 76. I'm somewhat knowledgeable about dogs, but couldn't for the life of me come up with this answer. Then one day, apparently I saw it a bit differently, and thought "of course!" CUJO! Stephen King's dog!
Not far into the Covid experience almost a year ago I began ordering these books. Big print. Solvable. I did 10-12 a day, which meant the books didn't last long. But, maybe, this book WAS an outlier, because I haven't done a puzzle complete in almost two months. And I did rely more and more on answers in the back of the book or wordplay/crossword on the internet. The mood, or at least THAT mood, seems to have passed and I'm doing puzzleboss jigsaw puzzles on Kindles these days. Some of the answers in the Timmerman books may be obscure for younger people. There are many that I know but I'm almost 79 and they are things I remember from younger years/older times. Anything that keeps one's mind working in these stressful times remains golden.
