I love it! I think the hardcover can't be topped in terms of beauty, but I think the new cover is very true to the book--and I'm so glad they kept the barbed-wire lettering. Congrats!
Thanks Caroline! It is true to the story, I agree.
I'm a big fan of the hardcover, but I think younger readers will pick up the paperback (especially with summer coming on). xx(P.S. very much a fan of the words inside)
So excellent to hear you like the words, Sarah. And I think you're right about young readers picking it up, plus it looks way summery.
Actually I love them both :)
Love the metallic look of the title on the new cover. It fits the barbed-wire lettering :-)
Thanks Petra. I think they did a good job.
You know how much I love the hardcover...but I think this paperback will definitely attract a lot of younger readers (as said above by Sarah), and it does capture the mood of your book quite well—summery, dreamy, bittersweet :)
Thanks Maureen. I hope you are right.
seems to be a juxtaposition with the word infinite, which reminds you about freedom and yet the text resembles barbed wire which usually means to restrict and contain naughty animals.
Ha ha, naughty animals. And not so naughty animals. I think the juxtaposition is meant to hint at the menace in the book, in between all the pastoral sweetness...
I'm hoping I win this book through the variety of contests I've entered for this prize book, but if I am not a lucky person, maybe I'll just buy it. Ugh, I'm stuck reading a free Goodreads giveaway now that's sort of dragging along. I keep looking at it and wishing it would turn into your book, C.J.!
Don't make me choose!!! I love them both...I've been looking at them for 5 minutes and I can't decide which one I like more, lol. x
