The Merlin Mystery book. Merlin’s Mystery is a masterpiece of a puzzle hidden in a simple, short story. The story is about 40 pages long, taking no more than 30 mins to finish. But the unravelling of the puzzle itself will take many hundreds and thousands of hours, calling for the collaborative effort of great minds, sages, abstract thinkers, and likely someone well-versed in symbolism.

A fantastic book for children and adults . The graphics are awesome. I have the book in German end in English . I bought them as gifts but do not want to give them away because I dont have one for myself. I am probably going to purchase another book in Italian .

As happy as I was to see the "treasure hunt puzzle book" genre resurface, I was not happy with the form it takes here. Previous works in the genre, like Kit Williams' "Masquerade" and Dan James' "Treasure," feature both clever puzzles and beautiful art--so even if the mysteries elude you, you can still enjoy the creativity and artistry that went into creating the overall work. That's simply not the case with "The Merlin Mystery," a garbled wreck of a treasure hunt with artwork that does not hold up on its own.
Crammed with dozens of intentionally confusing symbols, paintings that look like the work of a talented high school student who has watched "Excalibur" too many times, an outright abuse of Photoshop, and a hackneyed, melodramatic story that alternately shoves and drags the reader forward, Merlin Mystery is a confusing cacophany that simply doesn't appeal as a puzzle or a picture book. Neither the art nor the text inspires an emotional connection with the reader--the creators come off less as storytellers and more like mercenaries with paintbrushes.
If, however, the point of the work is not emotional but intellectual, then sadly its baffling puzzle elements are no less appealing. The multi-layered enigma been so intentionally over-constructed that nobody but its creators knows--or cares--what the method to the madness may be.
Never mind locating the treasure--there's no soul to be found here.

I really enjoyed this read, in part, because of the art work and the great idea behind the creation of this book. The read is enthralling on its own, and still, you get your money's worth as you appreciate the details of the mystery. I particularly like the hardcover version more than the paperback book, it enables you to appreciate the art work even more so.

Looking at the cover of this book; I thought ' Ah, a story about Merlin - the great magician '. You see, I am into articles involving Merlin. When I opened the book; I was greeted with symbols and pictures; I had no idea why they were here... Until I reached the end of the book, and saw the 'Rules and Conditions to entry'... What I had here was a puzzle book, and a bllody good puzzle at that!!!
Obiviously, I gave up on the puzzle ages ago, but I am still fascinated by the text on the back cover of the book... It is said that this puzzle can be solved equally by a determined child as an expert puzzler... I would like to meet this determined child.
Nethertheless, a great story; it's a pity I got distrcted by all the symbols.

It is incredible how such books are so applicable to adults' lives and emotions, regardless of their location and position on this Earth. I personally like such stories, as they could be very didactic and instructive and at the same time, wise, eye-opening and liberating. This is a good genre that could be liked by any readers of any culture around the world. Last but not least, quite understandably, the illustrations are lovely indeed.

Don't be dismayed by pretenders to the throne, the Wand and the treasure still remain at large and up for grabs.
The book is exciting and exhilirating and filled with many levels of intricate puzzles. The beauty of it is that it's not language dependant so players around the world can exchange ideas and thoughts even if they are looking at different language versions of the book. The Merlin Mystery community is as diverse as you'll find in any culture or large city and are pretty much a friendly group of folks.
This book is not only fun but connects you with good people all over the world.

This is a puzzle book and a fantastic one at that. Brilliant Authorship combined with equally brilliant illustrations. I had long ago thought that this medium was long gone, then came the discovery of Jonathan Gunson's greatness in 'The Merlin Mystery.' Jonathan Gunson deserves two thumbs up for releasing this enigma. Fun to try and solve. Worth your time. Can be shared with friends at gatherings.
Did anyone ever solve the puzzle and win the prize?
