Living in Germany gives me the perfect opportunity to compare original covers with the ones German publishers choose. Sometimes they're gorgeous, sometimes they make me cringe, but it's always interesting to see different covers for the same novel.
Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature here at Fictional Distraction.
Last week's winner is the US cover of Isle of Night by Veronica Wolff.
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
(US Hardback / US Paperback / GER)
I have to start this by saying that I don't like the German cover at all. While I love that they wanted to keep somewhat close to the original cover, it's not nearly as mysterious and intriguing as the US hardback. The latter concentrates more on the typography and the beautifully coloured sky while the German cover focusses on the faces which ruins the "magic" for me.
I like the US paperback though, because the futuristic feeling to it would definitely make me want to pick it up. But in the end, I just love love love the US hardback cover. So gorgeous!
