Most of us have a few minutes here and there to stretch our brains. Sherlock Holmes Puzzles: Math & Logic Games is the perfect book to pick up occasionally for a few minutes. With 104 puzzles testing various thinking skills, it is perfect to keep your mind active.
There are traditional logic puzzles, speed/distance math problems, chess conundrums and visual puzzles within Sherlock Holmes Puzzles: Math & Logic Games. Some are definitely challenging. Many build on prior puzzles so make sure you do them in order. I solved an earlier puzzle with the “The Final Desert Solution” well before it was necessary. The whimsical drawings and links to Sherlock Holmes make this an enjoyable book even if you can’t solve all the puzzles. Pretending to be a smarter Dr. Watson is fun too. Overall, this book is a great collection of puzzles. 5 stars!
Thanks to Wellfleet Press, Quarto Group, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
