Over the Counter #281

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

UK cover
Oh, I am looking forward to C.J. Tudor's forthcoming book - The Other People. It's going to be a bit of a wait - Jan '20 is release date. It's been added to my TBR list. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So, the car headlights on the US cover suit the premise of the book. Searching....I also like the fractured font used on the title. The UK cover continues the 'look' of Tudor's previous two books with the stick figures. The faded out figure speaks to something gone of missing. And the title set on pieces of paper reminds me of ransom notes. Hmm, I'm torn this week, but if pressed to choose, I think I will go with the US cover this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Other People?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I think I like the UK cover since it's in the spirit of Tudor's previous books.

UK cover for the torn pieces of paper.
Read the author’s prior book, The Hiding Place - a bit of a disappointing read for me, especially after all of the glowing reviews it received, so I won’t continue with this author.

I'm in minority this week - UK takes it.

Bermudaonion - yes, it matches the previous 'stick man' look.

Icewineanne - The first book, Chalk Man was better than The Hiding Place.
