He's one of my mother's favorite authors.
I don't think he'd approve of this cover.
I think this cover can go down in history
as having one of the most
unmemorable pictures ever.
Three people hanging out in a field.
This cover tells me nothing about the plot.
It goes into the
Mediocre Hall of Fame.
Even this next cover is more interesting.
But that may just be because I like watercolors.
And because it looks like the man to the left
is doing something awkward in the snow.
it really is one of those days.
A.'s A in W.
It's amazing how many style variations
this story has gone through,
both in cover art and in recreations.
I was okay with the latest movie version.
Didn't love it,
didn't hate it.
I remember reading this next book.
But I don't remember the actual story.
as plain covers go,
they picked the correct color for the cover.
How depressing would it have been if
The Red Badge of Courage
had a green and white cover?
a blue and white one...?
And that The Red Badge of Courage
tipped me off on his cover style choice.
Mr. London has committed the ultimate faux pas here:
He has given his novel a proper name.
I really do wish all books
that use full character names as titles
would come with arrows;
one to label the author name
one to label the book title.
That would be very helpful
and much appreciated.
