5A marvelous - and huge - collection of puzzles and brainteasers
By J. Chambers
Note: This review was originally published at Red Adept Reviews on March 4, 2012.

Overall: 5 stars

Having already worked the puzzles and brainteasers in the three puzzlebooks that make up this trilogy, I knew what to expect. The three earlier puzzlebooks are presented unabridged in the order they were originally published in, with solutions, for a total of 303 mind exercises. There are no time limits, so there's no pressure to solve a puzzle unless you want to set your own limits and use a clock.

The puzzles do not have to be solved sequentially - you can begin anywhere and work in any order, although the puzzles gradually get more difficult as you go up the order. The puzzles include a number of different types of brainteasers, so they never appear repetitive. I've seen similar types of puzzles on some intelligence tests, so these might be good practice for such a test. I know very little about the cognitive functioning of the brain, but I think these puzzles would give your logic circuits a good workout.

The bottom line: the puzzles are interesting and fun to solve, especially if you like mind challenges. I enjoyed solving them, but my two nieces, ages 8 and 10, also enjoyed them.

I ran the Puzzlebook Trilogy on both my Kindle Fire and Kindle 3 (now called the Kindle Keyboard). On the Kindle Fire, the puzzles were in color, and the controls were simpler, consisting of touching and swiping. On the e-ink Kindle, there was a short learning curve on using the controls, and the color graphics were in grayscale, but the puzzles played just as well.

5Three Books in One
By Roberta Karchner
If you have not purchased the earlier puzzles books by this family, this is a wonderful place to start.

These books contain a wide variety of puzzles, from simple ones where you need to be observant and count things, to a few where remembering your Geometry could be helpful. There are matching, twisting, and logic puzzles. What amazes me is the variety of puzzles, all in full color, which is wonderful for me as an iPad user.

When you click on the correct answer, it takes you to a page where (if applicable) the answer is explained. An incorrect answer let's you know you have missed, and you have the chance to try again by returning to the puzzle.

I enjoy stretching my mind, and these are just the thing for taking on a trip, well at least as long as I'm not the one driving.

I am grateful to have received a complimentary copy of this book so that I could check it out in its newest edition and provide a review.

5Great value
By Stephen M. Lerch
Having played all of the Puzzlebooks in this collection previously, I have to say that if you don't already own any of the books in this unique trilogy, it's definitely worth the money if you are a fan of puzzles at all. At the current sub five dollar price, the price is right. There's not a lot of plot and no characterization, but what is here is a great example of puzzle solving.

Each puzzle is a brain twister for sure, and each gets a little more difficult than the puzzle on the previous page, gently building up the difficulty.

The only reason this wouldn't make financial sense is if you already own any of the books in the series.
