You Can't Judge a Book By Its Cover #29

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
US/Canadian cover
UK cover
I was hunting down cover art for this week's review of The Long Way Home by Louise Penny. I came across the US/Canadian cover on the left and the British cover on the right.
Setting is a large part of the book. Both covers show this, but I prefer the US/Canadian cover this week. Turning things upside down can be interpreted a number of ways. And I prefer the stark look without a figure in it. Which cover do you prefer? Do you plan to or have you read The Long Way Home?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular Saturday feature on A Bookworm's World.

I find it interesting that they both use the same colors.

The US/Canadian cover attracts me more than the British cover. The latter comes too close to looking almost cozy mysteryish.

BermudaOnion - isn't it funny what leaps out first? I never even twigged to the colour sameness.

TechEditor - yes, I agree!

They look a lot alike except for the figure. I am a fan of the backs of people for some reason. although I think it has been a bit overdone.
