Solving the puzzle under 8 minutes is good, under 6 very good, under 4 excellent and under two "you're a pro!"
Those of you looking for an added challenge can try to solve one sentence or even one word at a time, i.e. solve the entire first line, then go to the second line etc.

Many of you picked up on the first letter being A and that told you that the three different 2-letter words began with I.

That one made me smile.
Well, that took about 6 minutes, because I didn’t start with the 3 letter word after the comma, as I should have. Once I got that word, I knew the name.
