So we 2 discovered something last week and yes yes we know that we really live under a rock and all. Did you know that certain audiobooks had different covers from the print books? WE didn’t! When Caro told me we could talk about that in our cover post I was like ‘yeah very different cover. We can talk about the different Unabridged fonts
But I’m now aware of the fact that she was right. And yes you are allowed to write that in your calendar.
Okay so here is what we found rather interesting:
Audiobook Covers – Jeaniene Frost edition
Caroline: I think the cover of One Foot in the Grave is pretty amazing. (you should look at it in big). The cover model looks kick-ass, and she’s pretty much how I picture Cat. I really really like that cover. It looks more ‘real’ than the print cover. The background brings some kind of mysterious atmosphere that I found perfect. The only thing I don’t like is the title. O_o it’s…hum…not very subtle lol. Two thumbs up for that cover. I even wished it was the cover for my print copy lol.
At Grave’s End cover…omg I don’t even know where to start. That’s what Cat would look like if she was Shrek’s daughter….and sick. O_o Why?? Why does she have to be GREEN. Ewwwww Seriously I found it fugly. Add the bad photoshopping and the ridiculous title font…oh and the ugly background too. Ok will stop now but you got the idea. Ahh one more thing…the color of her hair is sooo…ewww. It’s nothing like the beautiful cover of One Foot in the Grave.
Susi: I agree the One Foot in the Grave cover is actually really nice. I like the motorcycle and the way she leans on it. Yes he model looks like cat and I love the font and how the shadow reflects in the dusty background. Nice job indeed.
The At Grave’s End cover is soooo bad. OMG what did they do to the poor model? Why are her lips pink? Seriously? Anyone thinks that Cat would wear babypink lipstick? *snort* And did they try to change her hairline? It looks so photoshopped. And in this cover the font looks stupid but I think it’s more because of the colors that the actual font. Me not likey AT ALL:
Caroline: OMG I completely missed the pink lipstick lol. O_O
Susi: How could you? It’s like screaming “Look I’m a whore lipstick!” *shudders*
Caroline: I had a hard time getting over the green skin. It bleached my brain so thorouly that I lost my ability to think about something else.
Susi:Okay touché! LOL
Ohhh I like the First Drop of Crimson
cover. I think that guy looks a bit like Heath Ledger. And I love how her skin brings so much contrast to it. And I love the red font. It really fits into the cover as a whole. Nice also that he has a bit of blood running down his face. That one is really nice. And I would even say better than the original
Okay it seems these covers are kind of hit or miss for me. WTF is that? That guy looks über scary. And is that the same woman as on the First Drop of Crimson
cover? Seriously are they sharing the woman now? In a serious with different leading couples they really shouldn’t do that. And I don’t like the violet, it’s just too much like his skin color. But again, better than the original
. (Did you see the blood on that one? That looked like they did it with MS Paint? LMAO)
Caroline: You’re right he does look a bit like Heath Ledger. I don’t like his skin color O_o it’s..blue-ish. And while I like the woman, it still look like a bad photoshopping, look at her left shoulder. Meh. It’s not a bad cover, but it doesn’t do much to me. BUT It’s still WAY better than the print cover.
OMG we couldn’t disagree more! I really LOVE the cover for Eternal Kiss of Darkness, that’s one yummy vampire we got here. He does look a bit scary but DUH, vampire!! I really love how he’s placing his hands on her head and the look of pleasure on her face. The color of his skin is perfect (not Green! Not Blue!). This shouts ‘sensual’ to me. I can’t stop looking at it. Nom nom nom.
Susi: OMG just looked at her shoulder? Is her arm missing? WOW I didn’t see that. LOL And seriously? That guy looks like he’s an addict and just crawled out of a dumpster.
Susi: Yes I did and I don’t like either one of the print ones. Guys are not very smexy and overall they look kind of cheap. And nope you can have him. *shudders* That is one of the guys your mom warns you of. BAD, he will ruin your life with drugs and probably sell you at the next opportunity. See I’m getting all Mommy on you. Muahahah!
Caroline: ROFL Mom, once again we disagree completely on these covers LOL
Alright guys it’s time for you to take sides, what do you think about these covers?
Do you also think Susi is completely weird for not loving the guy from Eternal Kiss of Darkness? *g*
Do you have any favorite audio book covers or one you think screams ‘eye-bleach’ when you look at it for longer than 3 seconds?
