Cover to Cover. (2)

Cover to Cover. Want to know more about it? Check out the first one here.

This weeks pick? Looking for Alaska by the awesome John Green. A personal favourite of mine.

Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words — and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

I have trouble choosing a favourite out of these three. My copy of the novel has the first cover. I like how simple it is and how intense the: "First friend. First Girl. Last Words." And how Alaska is written.

I love the second one because if you think about it for long enough it can imply a lot. Maybe it implys things going up in smoke? Maybe it implys the end? I adore the way that the smoke curls up the top of the shot.

The last one and I believe the Australian cover. I love the way: "First Friend. First Girl. Last Words" is written on this as well. I love how sweet the picture is and how it's faded. I like the black border as well.

My favourite cover, I think has to be the second one (U.S). What about you? Which cover is your favourite and why?

My favourite is the UK one (top pic), which is the edition I own. I love the title font, and the tagline of sorts.

I do like the second cover as well though.

I'm not really sure which one I like best. I read the one with the candle and smoke, but I think I like the first one better.

I'm on the third cover. It has the quality of an indi film. Low budget, lots of hand-held camera.

Did you know that John Green is coming to Melbourne in May?

Just Listen said...

YES! Yes I did and I am very excited about it. Do you know if he's doing any signings while he's there? :)

ohh, I hadn't seen the third cover before. Interesting but I think my favorite is the middle one.

I think that I like the second one the best, it looks really intriguing and make me really want to read the book!
