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.
If you need a little help you can copy the cryptogram and paste it to Hals Helper below:
You can then work on the puzzle without using pen and paper.
Solution to our last puzzle:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatest thrust upon them. Williams Shakespeare
Got the three-letter fourth word and that lead immediately to being able to identify the 13th and 17th repeating words. From there, each added word gave me enough to cascade the rest. The identity of the author came somewhere about the middle of solving the cryptogram.
3:22, Fun puzzle. Liked the author.
Well, it was a slower star, but I stumbled onto something, and it all came together after that. :)
Nice one! It took 5 minutes of diddling around with 2 and 3 letter words, and double letters, till suddenly the first name was obvious.
This one was like dominoes :) Less than 3 mins.
Glanced quickly at the words, saw the fifteenth one, guessed what it was and all fell into place. The most time I spent was on the one set of double letters in the author’s name.
