- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
" The heart-pounding debut from the creator of the hit
Scandinavian television show The Killing." I quite liked the show and am looking forward to reading this one. The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Okay, we have two deliciously creepy covers this week. The red of the US cover just signals danger. And with a few black squiggles, we have the shape of a man. And those few lines are very, very effective in their simplicity. The UK cover background is a dirty white - who knows what the dirt is rom. And the figure is made from chestnuts - with a nail driven into the heat and splintered sticks for limbs. Also very creepy. But I think I am going to go with the US cover this week. I just find those understated lines so ominous. What about you? Which cover do you prefer?
Any plans to read The Chestnut Man?
