I mentioned the following covers for Simon Holt's The Devouring in this week's Book Chat on scary reads (and will be mentioning them again next week in the Chat for creepy covers). They are also covers that I've been meaning to feature here on FFO for some time now because they are such very different takes for the same book, and give such ... different impressions. I have a definite favorite, but that's without having read the book, so who knows what I'd think if I knew the story. But what about you? Which would you reach for on the shelves?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The hardcover and paperback versions of Clarity went head to head, and the paperback proved that sometimes a mid-series cover redesign is actually for the best: the more more suitable red-headed paperback cover won in a landslide, despite how similar both covers really are.
