This is a puzzle gamebook written by Ian Livingstone and Jamie Thomson.Here is my review.
This book has 422 references.It fact this is just a normal puzzle book split into references.The only real choices you get to make is when the text sometimes asks if you want a normal puzzle next or a TOUGH puzzle(Yes,capitals included).Still,I'm not complaining.I love puzzle books.
The puzzles inside range from Spidoku(a special type of sudoku) to more... special ones.There are some puzzles featuring Dark Lord,hinting at JT's Dark Lord series,while others feature wizards,orcs or secret agents.There is a large variety of puzzles,making for an interesting read.
Also,references 219 to 236 are printed on full colour pages,because those puzzles need to be in colour to work(like Mondrian Madness,a maddening twist on spot the difference).
Add the end,you have to add up your score(pardon the pun),to find out how big is your brain(hence the name).The authors offer interesting and humourous descriptions of your intelligence level.
Overall,a great book for gamebook and puzzle fans.Buy this if you can.

After a while, you rest. When you finish resting, go to 1. 400 Eh? How did you get to this section? No matter, for the Deadshadowrunner has found you. The last things you see are a pair of sly eyes and a grinning mouth with sharp teeth floating in the darkness.
