lots of fun for the whole family Apr 27, 2010
My oldest daughter just loves brain teasers , she's 12 but my younger daughter who's 9 also comes up with some good answers to these sticky problems , we enjoy taking these kinds of books when we travel, they help the journey go faster for everyone .I highly recommend it for those who like to be challenged to think outside the box.
REALLY bad Oct 7, 2009
I got this for my daughter and it has already gone to the goodwill. Reaching? They come up with answers based on nothing. They just pull solutions out of the clear blue sky without any content hints. The final mystery goes into all this detail about being locked out of the house in the garage with they keys in the car, the garage door down, and the car running. How will you get the keys to get into the house and how will you get back into the car? Solution? It is a convertable, and the top was down so you can just reach in and get them. HUH???? There are no hints that would lead you to this, none. I read it to my husband and he agreed. There is no logic to them. I read about 20 pages of this and there were about 3 decent pages out of 30.
Short and silly... Oct 1, 2009
Return of the One-Minute Mysteries and Brian Teasers is almost a game. It is more fun with several people. Youth groups will love the challenge. If you love a challenge you will love the challenge. Return of the One-Minute Mysteries and Brain Teasers: More Good Clean Puzzles for All Ages! will be the hit of my next Sunday School Class party. The mysteries are a short paragraph. There are clues to assist you in solving the mystery. The last section has the answer. These are definitely brainteasers.
These are not in depth mysteries. They are short and some silly. I suggest taking this on a vacation and using it to keep the kids occupied while driving.
Fun book but some early riddles were disappointing Sep 27, 2009
The beauty of brain teasers is that the answer is obvious when you hear it. The more obvious that there is a single (albeit elusive) answer, the more fun the brain teaser. In the case of the first group of stories in this book, a few of them had answers that just seem to be pulled randomly. I won't provide any examples because I don't want to spoil the book but my children and I found that the brain teasers just weren't that enjoyable. After a dozen or so, we just put the book aside. We love brain teasers in my house but we didn't love this book.
Waste of money! Jun 22, 2009
This books seems real silly - so called brain teasers have no meaning. Each one can have thier own answer for for each of it and seems really very silly. Not even one single puzzle has some logic in it ! Waste of money.
