Question: What books can you think of that have covers better than the content and vice-versa?
I'll start with books that had fantastic covers, but whose insides were disappointing.
An amazing and gorgeous cover. Very well done and completely eye-catching. Then you read the story. I'm not the only person who was throughly lost and confused and disappointed by the tale held inside this gorgeous cover.
Next up we have Mister Death's Blue-eyed Girls by Mary Downing Hahn. (my review) This cover is so perfect. There is nothing I don't love about this, even the title wraps in so nicely. But the story was just sort of meh. I love love love love love this cover though. Definitely need a print for it to go in my collection.
my review) I mean look at that cover!!! Not only did the cover lend to the idea that this book would be amazing, but the fact that it was a re-telling of the GREATEST love story of all time made the stakes high. Unfortunately the story did not live up to the cover expectations.
my review) This cover is just so blah, even the new cover isn't good. Regardless of the cover though, this book was completely amazing. I was totally blown away by Ender's story and just found this book to be a surprisingly fantastic read. Seriously, if you haven't read it pick it up soon.
