Cover Wars: No Country

As you know I recently read, and reviewed No Country by Kaylan Ray. One of the many things that struck me about the novel was the different covers chosen by American and British publishers. Let’s take a look, shall we?

I love the cover of the North American edition. The colors and mosaic pattern draw me in immediately. It is a book I want to pick up.

The Indian and British edition, however, suits the story a little better to me. It communicates that No Country is a historical tale. The birds also give it a seafaring feel. While I don’t like the cover as much, I think it does a much better job at representing the story.

What do you think? Have you read No Country? Which cover appeals to you? And have you seen any other covers for No Country?

  1. I just read your review – sounds interesting but I either love or hate these sprawling sagas so don’t read them as much as I probably would like. Based on your review, I think if I picked up the first cover I’d be a bit disappointed but maybe I would be pleasantly surprised as I had no saga expectations.
