BD Rating – Difficulty ***** – Enjoyment ****
I spent a long time on this including a 5-10 minute period in the middle when I didn’t solve a single clue. I ended up in 5-star difficulty territory for the first time in ages but, as I wrote the review, I couldn’t see any reason why it should have taken me so long. Certainly the complete lack of anagrams and multiword answers didn’t help.
