Yeah, I know I said this was the better one.
Having finished the book (review tomorrow for those interested), I can say, though, that while the other one is by far one of the ugliest covers to have made an appearance in this world (though the Poseur by Rachel Maude cover is a strong contender, and many others I'll save for a later post), it fits the book better.
This is just too pink.
People. It is not a wonderful life. The idealized color in the book is yellow, for hope. Not pink, for ruffles. Seriously, how hard is it to get it right?
The book is bleak, sad, devastating, with an undercurrent of unfailing hope. Not a summertime romance, fergossake.
But you guys, before my post on this book tomorrow, let me just say this: You need to read it. You simply do.
