You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover #11

- You Can't Judge a Book By It's Cover - Which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
US/Canadian cover
UK/Australian cover
I was hunting down cover art for Neely Tucker's debut novel - The Ways of the Deads - and came across the US/Canadian cover on the left and the UK/Aussie cover on the right. I prefer the North American cover this time. For me, it captured more of the girtty inner city feel of the book. The UK /Aussie version also connotes grimness with the gray. But I have to admit, I didn't realize it was a bird on the wire at first glance. My first thought was tightrope walker! Either way, it's a really good read! Which cover do you prefer? Have you read The Ways of the Dead?
You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover is a regular Saturday feature on A Bookworm's World
