100 Puzzle Quizzes is the ultimate electronic puzzle book for any puzzle-lover. Like its name suggests, the e-book contains 100 puzzles in a variety of themes including visual, spatial, counting, geometry, matchstick, coins, and searching. This full-color, interactive puzzle book provides a puzzle-lover with hours of fun.

As a puzzle-lover myself, there were a lot of things that I liked about 100 Puzzle Quizzes. I loved that it was available as an e-book. Instead of having to flip back and forth from a puzzle to an answer, all I had to do was select my answer and I would automatically be taken to a page that either explained why my answer was right or told me I was wrong. I also like that the puzzles offered in this e-book aren’t your standard Crossword and Sudoku varieties. Many of these puzzles I have never seen before, and I enjoy the opportunity to challenge myself in news ways.

However, there are also a few things about the book that I’m not crazy about. For one, I cannot find instructions as to how to do these unusual puzzles anywhere. Some of them are really foreign to me, and I literally have no clue what I’m supposed to do. Also, I downloaded the book on the Kindle application on my Android Phone. I’m not sure if the problem is with the application on my phone or with the e-book itself, but every time I get an incorrect answer, I have to start at the very beginning of the book and search through the pages until I find the puzzle I want. This wasn’t a big deal during the first twenty or so pages, but it got old fast as I moved into the more intermediate puzzles (which were more difficult so I got the wrong answer more often.)

Despite the minor problems I have with the book, I’m very happy to have had the chance to review it. I constantly find myself going back to try to solve a tricky puzzle; and when I’m not actually looking at the e-book, I’m thinking about it. All in all, this is an affordable and enjoyable collection of puzzles.
