Synopsis

The Puzzle Addict's Book of Codes - 250 Totally Addictive Cryptograms for You to Crack by Philip J. Carter

The Puzzle Addict's Book of Codes is part of a new series of fun books aimed at puzzle fans of all ages who need a fresh challenge after Su Doku and the rest. If you ever fancied being an expert code-breaker or indeed code-maker, this is the book for you. The puzzles start off fairly straightforward and work up to the fiendishly difficult as you become more familiar with how they work. Try this one for starters: The manager of a Spanish football team sends the following encoded message to one of his scouts in England indicating that he is interested in signing a British player. Who is the player? (Answer below) Norwich City 3 Nottingham Forest 2 Aston Villa 4 Manchester United 3 Everton 1 Yeovil Town 1 If you think that's tough, wait until you get to the really hard ones! Along the way, you'll discover how to unravel codes, ciphers, deception puzzles, standard and keyed cryptograms, pangrams and many more. You'll also learn a bit more about the greatest codes and cryptic messages of all time. Answers to all questions are included if you get really stuck. So, get a pen and paper and get cracking! (Answer: ROONEY. Take the numbered letter of each team in turn as indicated by their score)

Lovereading are lovely people who send me lovely books. What's not to love?

Gavin Dimmock

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
