US Vs. UK: The Hollow Covers

US // UK

I really like the US cover for The Hollow - I like the colours. The UK one is nice, but I don't think it stands out as much. It's good that the necklace is present on both; I haven't read the book yet, but I'm guessing it has some important significance to the story?

I much prefer the US one. I like all the colours.

The US one fits the haunting tone.

I agree with Liyana and Sophie! The US one looks more alluring!

I agree with Sophie and Liyana because it looks better.

the covers make me want to read it

Yan said...

I'm not fans of either. Anyway the necklace isn't really that important :/

I don't know. US is more eye-catching, but I hate people on covers of books. Faces, more specifically. I like the simplicity of the UK cover, but it doesn't give the same feel as the US one. Not having read it I don't know which would be a better representation. Hmm.

Although UK version would likely be pb and therefore I would like it better as would my wallet - even with exchange rates!

Yeah, I'm always the different opinion. I LOVE the UK one!!

Well, this is a toughie. I really like both. Normally I go for the UK version, (not that I'm biased or anything) but this time I think it's a tie :)

I really like both of them, but I like the US one more.

I love these US vs. UK cover posts! They're so interesting and fun!

I'm not too sure if I like the US cover. I usually like people, but I find the face looks really... plastic like. Like a doll or it's been photoshoped way to much. Although I agree that the colours are beautiful. I guess I go with the UK, even if it's not quite as striking.

I like them both but I like the UK one more - I don't know why but it really appeals to me!

Bookworm said...

Both are really pretty. The UK one is a little bland, but, like Alex says above, the girl on the US cover looks really fake. I'd still go with that one, though.

I like them both, but the US cover appeals to me more. I think the cover just seems much more haunting.
