I like the way that the cover is divided and there is a clear distinction between the 2 girls and of historical and contemporary but I think that the title doesn't stand out enough and the straight line down the middle doesn't make it look very professional. However, the photo of the girl on the left might make this book appeal more to contemporary fans.
This is the cover that I have and it's definitely my favourite. They key features prominently in the story and I love the font of the title and the red. I think it would stand out to people a lot more because of its bold simplicity however the only down side is that it doesn't give much away about the story apart from the title and yo u can't really tell that there is contemporary too. On the hardback version that I have, I also like the texture of the jacket which has a kind of 'scroll' feel that matches the background.
The UK cover wins for me although both do have their qualities- which is your favourite and why?
I have only just started reading Revolution so I am a few chapters in and although I found the start a little confusing and hard going, I am enjoying it now and am assured that the further on in the book, the better it gets. I can't wait to read the rest!
