So... It's been a couple weeks since we've had a Face Off. I have excuses, but...I'm not gonna bother. I'd rather get right down to it: Slide, by Jill Hathaway, vs. self.
I've been meaning to feature this one on Friday Face Off forEVER, but the recent cover reveal for book 2, Imposter, reminded me that I need to get on it. I actually hadn't seen both versions on Goodreads, or anywhere else for that matter, until I was adding it to my Better World Books wishlist after it came out (so that I could keep an eye out for a cheap copy), and had the UK version pop up in the search results. It was sort of startling to me, partly because UK copies rarely show up on BWB, but mostly because they are so very different. I really actually like both, though, and think they give different - but equally compelling - impressions of the story. Seeing the two together kinda makes me want to read it more...
So, what do you think? If you haven't read it, would you reach for either of these on the shelves? And if you have, which do you think suits the story better? Let me know in the comments:
Which one did it better?
Last Time on FFO: We wrapped up the Jane Austen-y goodness with a Mansfield Park film face off, and it was pretty much a dead-tie. BUT everyone agreed that there just hasn't been a good adaptation of MP, which furthers my determination to have it be the read along selection next year, couple with a watch-along (um, you know what I mean, right?)
