Об авторе

Neil Somerville has been writing the bestselling ‘Your Chinese Horoscope’ series since 1987 and, as his readers have discovered, these are no ordinary Horoscope books. Although they do contain predictions they also give much encouraging advice and this is what attracted Neil to Chinese horoscopes so many years ago. They are a great indicator of trends to come and, once aware of these, it is possible to adapt and benefit from this knowledge.

The Literary Pocket Puzzle Book - Neil Somerville

INTRODUCTION

According to the French author La Rochefoucauld:

‘The ocean of literature is _____.’

• without limit

• a continual surprise

• always worth trawling

Whether to amuse, entertain, excite or inform, books offer so much to so many. They can also be a friend, sometimes an escape, and among their pages are many wonders.

In The Literary Pocket Puzzle Book you can glory in books, ponder over the quirks of famous writers, tackle mystery sudokus, coded crosswords, criss crosses and word searches as well as deliberate over the meanings of words such as palimpsest and squib.

There is much here that I hope will delight with literary puzzles to literally puzzle over. The answer to the above is: ‘The ocean of literature is without limit’ and, whether right or wrong, let the puzzling begin.

Have fun.
