You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #245

- 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
Anthony Horowitz is such a talented, clever writer. I really
enjoyed the first book (The Word is Murder) that featured Detective Daniel Hawthorne. Horowitz has written himself in as a character in the books. The second book is The Sentence is Death. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Both covers follow the look of the first book's cover. Red is prominent in both, as befits a murder mystery. But, I find myself more drawn to the simplicity of the US cover. It is less busy, but more effective. I like that drip from the paintbrush. So, an easy choice for me this week - US. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Sentence is Death?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

No contest for me - UK cover wins. Like the image of the two men on the bridge :)

I actually like both of them.

I like them both but if I had to choose I'd pick the UK cover.

I like both as well and so I'd probably need to know more about the story to decide. :-)

Well, I'm in the minority this week! It looks like the majority likes them both!
