This is a book for anyone interested in learning something about deciphering the mysteries of cryptic crosswords Australian readers of the Sydney Morning Herald will probably be familiar with the fact that the Friday cryptic crossword has developed a reputation of being the most difficult to crack This Friday puzzle is the creation of one DA the initials of David Astle Now DA has provided us with a rather comprehensive explanation of the devious mind games devised by Cryptic Crossword compilers The book appears to be very comprehensive and gives many examples of the different types of clues used by the compilers all designed to lead one through the complexities of what some people might consider twisted minds and provide a kind of text book reference work into their mysteries Along the way we are given insights into Astle s development as a compiler as well as lots of tidbits of information on the history of and some of the great names in cryptic crossword compilers What could one wantAstle cleverly does this by providing at the very beginning a master crossword the 33 clues of which are so designed as to provide the headings for the following 33 chapters of the book each clue type is dedicated to one of the tricks used by compilers in preparing their clues At the end of each chapter there are also what Astle calls uislings three for each chapter each being typical of the SMH s daily Wordwit conundrums also curated by Astle which I am particularly bad at unravelling Mercifully their answers are provided at the end of the book which also contains six mini cryptic crosswords in increasing levels of difficulty for the reader to solve after the initiation provided by the bookIf this book at least introduces people to the pleasures of cryptic crossword puzzles then it will have achieved its purpose and you probably won t find any comprehensive set of instructions than are here provided That being said I must admit that it would still not necessarily make it easier to crack Aslte s demonic Friday cryptic His type of lateral thinking about lateral thinking often stumps me but does not diminish my general love for these kind of puzzlesAs for Astle s mind he himself admits it is of an obsession something which he simply cannot resist He simply LOVES mucking around with words and can t seem to stop himself doing it and interestingly enough it appears that it may be a peculiarity of the English language to be able to so comprehensively and so thoroughly confound in its anagrams and mixings so beloved of cryptic crossword compilersA final comment about the genius and insanity I use the word in the kindest way of David Astle s mind I would never have become aware of it but Astle reveals at the end of the book that the master crossword has an added dimension Astle apologises for not being able to include the letter F in the solution to the grid That s right every letter of the alphabet except for the letter F is included in the solution The
