Looks great. What a refreshing change from the horrible covers (see Gardens of the Moon) that grace American fantasy shelves. view post

I agree. Scott, your cover is quite possibly the most attractive I have ever seen. It has a wonderful blend of art, class, and other-worldliness. view post

Yes, I was also extremely dissapointed in the American GotM cover. It looks like some trashy supermarket romance novel.

Those guys over in the UK though, they got a cool cover. It's not something I would stop and look at if I was walking down the asile in my bookstore, it took me a few seconds to get used to it, but there is somehing about it that makes it one of the best covers I've ever seen. My thought process when I first saw it on Amazon UK was something like "Wow that cover kinda su Hmmmm, thats pretty cool." view post

As a proud owner of the UK version of TDTCB I can't help thinking that the Canadian/US version looks so much better. I dunno, it caught my eye when I was looking for something to buy, but I actually put it back first time I picked it up (I have to admit I felt the blurb on the back didn't sound all that good initially, having read the book and knowing what it refers to I think better of it). I think the Canadian/US cover would really have caught my imagination more... view post

The artist who did the GOTM American cover has done all the covers for Hobb's books as well I think. And they all looked horrible IMHO. I wonder why the cover was changed for TDTCB for the British version anyway? The Canadian version seems like a pretty good universal cover if you ask me. view post

Yes the cover change from canadian version to UK version is realy irritating since once i figured out TDTCB was a book i wanted the canadian printing was out of print or between printings so i got the UK version from my local bookstore, but i will have the much better looking canadian versions for the rest of the books in the series.

*goes and cryes over the terrible damage this will do to the artistic look of his bookself* view post

I agree with pretty much everything said so far <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> The British cover of tDtCB isn't as good as the original, though still ok...

and yes, the US GotM cover is crap <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post

After seeing my purchase of the paperback version, my wife thought I was reading some bad romance novel.
Why they didn't stay with the cover as on the hardback remains a mystery. They say the jackets do help sell the book...and being a graphic artist I twinge when I see it. view post
