        Disappointing

        Location not marked, Contained too much ocean and not enough of the peninsula we wanted.

              I gave the puzzle to friends who are moving to Chapel Hill, NC. They were amazed this type of puzzle exists and cannot wait to get settled and work on putting it together.

              I thought this would be a great gift for my son who recently moved to a new area, to get to know his new neighborhood well - and it totally worked! The puzzle has enough pieces to be challenging, and not so many to be discouraging. He, who has everything and makes enough money to buy anything he wants, was thrilled with this puzzle. A great gift!

                      The puzzle seemed to be very good quality, but the map didn't include the address I had requested. It was an area near the location.

                            The only complaint I have is that we could not see enough detail, like the street our house was on. This could be because we live in a small town, but i would think it would be true for a big city as well. Otherwise, it was a great gift for my parents, which "have everything".

                            This puzzle is an excellent gift idea & I bought it as a Christmas present for my 83 year old father that is recovering from bypass surgery. However I find it lacking & very, very disappointing.

                            There is no indicator as to the specific address and location that I gave located in the center of the puzzle. An asterisk, star, small house, longitude/latitude coordinates, "X marks the spot" or anything at all that indicated a very specific address would be a good idea. Why personalize a map with a specific address without indicating the address? A generic city map puzzle would result in the same thing. In fact on my puzzle the specific street I wanted is not even labeled, simply a line, however adjoining streets are named. Again where is the true personalized aspect that would make this an unusual gift?

                            The quality of the lettering is only OK. It isn't nice & crisp & reminds me of old dot matrix printers. I considered going with the more expensive detailed aerial map puzzle & decided that this one would be slightly less challenging to put together. I wish I had spent the extra $ for a puzzle that truly shows my father's house.

                            A simplified version of this puzzle could be an interesting & fun way to introduce children to maps as long as a specific marker, house, or asterisk that the child could associate with a real world place was indicated.

                              I got this for quite a few folks for Xmas. Two report they really like it. My brother lives on the coastline. 3/4 of his puzzle is blue water. You would think they would center it to show just a small amount of water.
