Are the characters believable?

The characters and their personalities are believable. Winston loves puzzles, just like me. Richard Overton, the cheery musician who hosts the weekend of puzzles and games, also seems realistic.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book?

I would rate this book a 10. It is awesome and very well written. There are visual and word puzzles in the story. At the back of the book, there are even more puzzles. If you love puzzles, you'll love this book!
