    Default Opinion question...

    In your opinion, from what you see so far, do you think the book has a lot of "strictly United States" kind of puzzles, or do you think someone from another (probably English-speaking) country could work this out?

    Someone not familiar with English and its literature might not catch *everything*. But it's possible.

    How "Americanized" do you think this might be???

    I disagree. Even if there is a US cultural bias to the solution -- and I haven't run across it yet -- it's been my experience that English-speaking foreigners tend to be very well versed in the US.

    NO. Some of the puzzles could be solved without even being able to speak English - however, any English speaking person would stand as good a chance as any of us Americans - there are tons of British websites with all kinds of puzzles. In fact someone from another country, may pick up on some of the text clues even faster.

    There are definitely Americanized phrases, most not relative to a puzzle, but nothing that wouldn't be understood by an English speaker.
