Cover Wars: Golden Boy

cw-goldenboy

When Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin (review) came out I was floored by it. It is simply brilliant. It is now available in paperback in most markets, so it seems like a good time to revisit some of its many covers.

I’m often perplexed when a book has so many different covers that are so varied in design. I wonder how that happens. For this book I suspect that it wasn’t doing as well as the publisher had expected, to they thought a design change would make people pick it up. What do you think? Would any of these covers make you pick up the book? And if you’ve read the book, which one do you think best reflects the story?
