Do you know any books with puzzles in them that are not puzzle books?
Full disclosure: Your answer may be utilized in a hub.
For my definition, a "puzzle book" is any book that focuses almost entirely with presenting the reader with puzzles. I'm thinking more of books that have puzzles, but also have fully developed plots and characters. It's okay if you don't know any.
Mysteries, who done it type, and others with plots that keep you on the edge until the end.
"Pale Fire" is one. The novel starts with a poem. The poem was supposed to be 1,000 lines, but the writer was shot before providing the last line. It then has footnotes and commentary on the poem from his neighbor and editor. Through reading everything, you are left to your own devices to piece together the story.
There was a book called Masquerade by Kit Williams. It was a book that had illustrations in it and a poem with each picture. The book was a puzzle and if you solved the puzzle, you won a gold rabbit worth several thousand dollars.
I actually owned a copy of that one, and the guidebook that was released after the puzzle had been solved.
At first it looked easy and was able to some of the riddles on the page, but was stuck after that. Borrowed the book from the library.
Puzzles are great, but what if they were more than they are? What if they had plots and characters? Truth is, some already do. read more
