- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
The 25th entry - The Sentinel - in Lee Child's Jack Reacher series releases in late fall of this year. And there will be another author listed as well. Child is passing the character and future books off to his younger author brother Andrew. The Sentinel will be a joint effort. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Roads, bridges, travel - all of these are part of Jack's world. I really like the overpasses on the US cover. They form an X which seems fitting. After all, an X represents the unknown. But the bridge is good as well - unknown destinations, burning bridges, bridge over troubled waters? The greens used in the UK cover do draw my eye a bit more. Previous UK cover in this series have also used a solitary figure on the cover. But, the absence of anything but the road on the US cover does appeal to me. What's at the end of the road? On the road? A tough call this week, but I'm going to go with the US cover.
What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Sentinel?
