Well, yes. But the process by which the protagonists solve them strikes me has having something worthwhile to it.

To be honest, my attempt to read the book was forty years ago (Forty years? Huh, how did that happen?) and my frustration is all I recall. I don't have the book anymore to try again.

Time passes.

Those three books collectively entirely melted my brain when I was twelve or so; McKillip's work went on to be a major formative influence. So I am perhaps not a good person to provide reasons why it's worth obtaining a copy.
