Cover Wars: Villa America I have strong opinions on this one guys. STRONG. UK edition US edition One is everything that is great and the other is snooze-worthy. But this is a democracy – so your thoughts please!

Related 17 Comments Would never pick up the UK version. Good to know. I’m quite drawn to it. That being said, I knew before hand that Villa America was the name of the Murphy’s house and would have been attracted to it for that reason alone. I always enjoy these posts! I haven’t read this yet so my view could change but although there’s much to dislike about the UK jacket the US version seems bland to me. Both are rather bland, but the font on the UK jacket is a little stronger. I know how you feel about the UK cover! But I really prefer the US version. It’s so calm and serene – everything they hoped their home would be and wasn’t. The house on the US Cover? I want to live there. I want to live in that house too! So I prefer the US version but I may change my mind when I read the book 🙂 Fair enough. I’m partial to the US cover because that’s what I read. Have you read Klaussman’s Tigers in Red Weather? The covers for that feel eerily similar to the UK version. Agree about the Tigers and the Villa covers (UK) being similar. 😉 I loved Tigers. I think I like the UK cover because it’s reminiscent of Tigers. I think the UK cover is more in line with the contents of the book? That period, that era, the characters? I initially only saw it in the UK cover so was kind of shocked to see the US/CDN cover actually. Very similar to The Beautiful Ruins cover, which is sort of kind of similar in content? I like them both, are drawn to both probably. Which one wins? Hmmmm – hard to pinpoint by me because both show very similar covers to all the other books that are out there tackling this “lost generation”…. I usually prefer UK editions… but this is an exception, haha! Wow, it seems this one is divisive! I prefer the US cover myself 🙂 I usually prefer the UK editions as well but yeah, in this case I prefer the US edition 🙂 I love the US cover even though you’re right about the UK cover being more dynamic. I was really excited for this book, but put it down after 100 pages and haven’t gone back yet. I prefer the UK version because I like consistency in author cover style, so the fact that it looks like Tigers in Red Weather is a bonus for me. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
