I love a good puzzle and mystery books. I had read it from shabd.in and kindle . A good game is something I like to watch. But I much rather read books with real people as the characters than ones where they're just pieces of a chessboard. As a chess player who enjoys the game, I say this.

Review of 'The Westing Game' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

In the rating game, I moved between 1 and 3 stars, settling on 3 before it could fall back to 2 where it was headed. I almost abandoned it twice.

Before the Internet, I'd never known anyone not related to me with the same last name as mine but now I've discovered it's not so rare.

That may have been the narcissistic push that got us to 3 stars.

I enjoy a good mystery and a good puzzle. I enjoy a good game. I prefer books with actual humans as characters, though, rather than the chess pieces being moved around in this one. I say this as someone who enjoys playing chess. …
