You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #150

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
 But you can like one cover version better than another....

US cover
UK cover
I've read or listened to all of the Jack Reacher titles from Lee Child. This collection of  eleven previously published short stories and a new novella releases on both sides of the pond in mid May. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The UK cover seems to mimic previous covers in this series. Lonely guy on a deserted road in the middle of nowhere. It does capture the essence of the character and the books. But you know, I would be much more likely to pick up the US cover. The image and the colours catch my eye. And Reacher does like his black coffee. So it's the US cover for me this week. Which cover do you prefer? Are you a Reacher creature? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

Both covers feel a little generic (for lack of a better word) to me.
