I was wondering if the font used both in the book and online was used for a specific reason. I ask because multiple times (I'm only half way through right now) the font alone has cause many a problem. I had keys misspelled and wrong answers purely because the letters looked different than what they were intended. I will put examples in a spoiler. I'm not whining. I love this book and I'm doing well. I just feel like the font is an unnecessary hurdle
Key 8 looks like it's spelled as Jon. And page 8 spelled out very little like the actual clue even though the maze was zero problem. Page 24 was a nightmare and I just went right to the forum because I knew what I was looking for but there was no way I was getting the spelling

I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who's kind of disapointed in that choice of font! I wanted to try this before making it a gift for a friend and asked before if it's doable for someone who only understands basic english so I asked on facebook and they told me yes no problem. But I won't be buying it for my friend because that font and some other things difficult to read are a real problem and it's a shame. And some clues we can't even do:

that clue with the qwerty board, we have azerty :'(

and for 23 I didn't see a horse chess piece but a dragon...why put a stain on it it's already not that easy

It's a real shame in my opinion cause I go to the forum to get hints just in case I couln't read something properly or if the enigma isn't obvious for someone french, otherwise it would be a briliant book (was just pointing out what isn't working in my mind but a lot of things are great about it)
