Cover Vs Cover
Weekly meme that compares the front covers of international books at http://asthesepagesfly.blogspot.com/. This week I am going to compare the Night Watch series.
For those who haven't read or watched the Night Watch...go do it now.
UK Version. I like this cover as it's dark and coincides with the original film, which I adore. The cover doesn't need anything to be pretty or appealing, as if you're lucky enough to have watched the movie you'll be eating this book up, or vise verse.
The US version is very different, although I think it is pretty unlike the UK version. However, it does not really establish anything significant to the story, and neither do I think a pretty cover is necessary to this story as it's not meant to be pretty.
I wanted to compare it to the original Russian version, but I can't find it anywhere. So this is as far as the comparison will go unfortunately.
DVD cover, I think they should make this the book cover too, as it just looks so bad-ass.
