Money Run by Jack Heath Blog Tour: AU Vs. UK Covers

AU // UK

If I knew nothing about this book and had to choose which edition to own, I wouldn't even think twice before picking the UK cover on the right. It's bright, vibrant, eye-catching, and it looks like a good action read for both boys and girls. I like the title placement, the font is bold and the actual cover images remind me of an episode of 24. Fire, skyscrapers, helicopters... surely Jack Bauer isn't far away?!

If I'm honest, I don't think I'd look at the Australian cover twice. Though, saying that, I do like the title font and the faint images of the man and woman that I can just about make out. Everything's in place for a great cover - the author's name stands out, there's a strapline that obviously works because the UK cover has also used it, but I personally don't think the mustard colour does anything for it. It's a shame really as the cover concept is a good one - maybe it looks better in real life? I've never seen it. but I'm sure there are some Aussies out there who have!

What do you think? Which cover would you choose? My vote is firmly with the UK this week!

Definitely the UK one for me, too! It's so much more eye-catching. It's not my favourite cover in the world, but it stands out a lot more than the AUS one does.

I totally agree. The AU cover is so BORING! It's not even a nice colour. I do like the UK one, mainly for the same reasons as you.

Yes, The UK cover gets my vote

I would pick the Australian cover, simply because almost every book in the action genre that I've picked up has a similar sort of cover to the one used for the UK. Even the font looks familiar to me, and that's not a good thing. If I wanted a book to stand out, the Australian cover would work very well simply because it's being unusually restrained.

Ha,this is so ironic, I was just looking at this in a bookshop yesterday, and thinking how great it sounded!

One thing agreed, the strapline is great! The Aus one is AWFUL. The UK one is MILES better. It's not brilliant, but it's a helluva lot nicer than the other one.

Without a doubt, the UK cover. The AU cover coloring is horrible. I completely agree that the UK cover is so eye-catching with all those vibrant colors - it looks great! :)

UK Cover hands-down!

I have to be careful not to offend the designer of the Australian one, but yeah - I'd be much more likely to pick up the UK edition in a bookshop. I just hope my new UK readers agree!

Noo said...

It's a BOOK, not a website. The Australian designer has missed hir or her calling.

Trish said...

Is this the first Jack Heath book published in the UK? Here in Aust, we already know his work from his agent Six of Hearts series, so fans are looking out for the name, not the cover. But, I don't know, maybe that's different in the UK. And yeah, it does look better in real life.

Please be aware of Hashmi Dawakhana’s sexual products. They are cheating to innocent people like me. I was also attracted and impressed by their advertisements and lucrative websites. I also got trapped by these thugs. Whatever they are promising on net like - time period, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, hardness, quantity of sperms and semen .These are all fakes.

I took full course of Mughal-e-azam herbal capsule for my treatment. I have only cured with hardness & erectile dysfunction. I was expecting to be fully cured of my premature ejaculation problem but I got little improvement.

Please think over before making any decision.
