Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Simon & Schuster puzzles are excellent, and the definitions are fair. No home-made words or misspelled answers. But they're difficult, although that only provides a challenge!
Thomas Middleton will always be the absolute best at writing Double Crostics. They are clever, witty and all-engrossing. Unfortunately, these are now out of print. Get them while you can.
These crostic compilations are disappearing fast. Middleton is the standard by which we judge all other crostics.
