- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another....
Graeme Simsion has a new book coming to North America in May 2018. I loved the Rosie Project, but couldn't get into his last book, The Best of Adam Sharp. But I am curious to see what this new book brings. Interestingly, Two Steps Forward has a co-author - Simsion's wife, Anne Buist. The US cover is on the left and the Australian cover is on the right. The book released in Oct. 2017 in Australia. I must admit, I'm not a fan of either cover this week. The book is set on the Camino Trail. Both covers illustrate this. The US cover has the two figures close together and the heart on the path gives us a good idea of the story within. The Australian cover has the figures far apart on the path and the larger figure seems to be looking for something or someone. I find the US cover to be somewhat bland and the Australian cover to be too over the top. It reminds me of a hippie van in the sixties. But, if pressed to choose, I will go with the US cover. The UK cover is being finalized, so we'll have to see if it is more attractive. Any plans to read Two Steps Forward? Which cover do you prefer?
