You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #254

- 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 was a big fan of Jeffery Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series when it first came out. But I've missed the last few as they began to seem repetitive. Deaver is coming out with the first book in a new series featuring investigator Colter Shaw in May. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So, bright grab you attention colours on the US cover. More subdued on the UK cover. Both feature a lonely stretch of road. I can't say I'm a fan of the chopped look of the US cover. I like the tag line on the UK cover - it lets me know that it's the kind of book I would read. I'm going to go with the UK cover this week. That chopped image makes my eyes hurt. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Never Game?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I'm with you on the chopped image so I prefer the UK cover.

I didn't know Deaver had a new series coming out. Yay! My husband reads the Lincoln Rhyme books, but I'll tell him about this one. I actually like the chopped thing, so I'll go with the US cover. Not to be contrary or anything...ha!

Hmm, 2 to 1 so far for the US.
