Notes
  • I like cover version #3 the best. It blends the key elements of the book very nicely without making any one element dominant over the others. I found it very inviting and I like the anonymity of the rider. Cover #1was my next favorite. I liked the images but found the girl and horse to be too dominant and conveyed the girl and the horse a more central figures in the story than I thjnk they are. My least favorite was cover #2. I didn't like the visual impact of the three scenes stacked on top of each other. I also found the bottom image difficult to see.
    I don't read a lot of novels. I usually read business related content. I did read the TOE manuscript and thoroughly enjoyed it particularly with the relevance to events going on with the world's financial markets currently.

  • Just realized i didn't address your other question. Older male, find myself emphasizing non-fiction, especially having to do with human behavior and motivation (especially in regard to attachment relationships, brain function or evolution), philosophy, spirituality, nature/environment, humor. My favorite fictional stories include mystery thrillers or detective stories (special warm spot for Sherlock Holmes stories) , historical fiction, or stories about the near future that are grounded in a good understanding of human nature and have implications for current civilization (and aren't too fantastic--don't much care for science fiction). But loved the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

  • I haven't yet read the book, so i can't opine about whether the cover fits with the content, but only about how it strikes me as if i were browsing in a store. From that perspective, my preference, in order, is 1, 3, 2. They are all very attractive, and somehow 3 seems more soothing. 2 and 3 make it look like a story about a girl and her horse, who live on the edge of a large city or go there for visits. 1 intrigues me more---the woman's facial expression makes me want to know more about her, and it suggests there is something important about the relationship between she and her horse---but also that the book must say something about 'civilization' , or at least urban civilization. and the dramatic, powerful typeface suggests that there is serious drama and intrigue and perhaps struggle and/or trauma that will make the story more than one-dimensional. typeface 3 suggests a relationship story that may touch my heartstrings and will be soothing in the end. typeface 2 seems more neutral.

  • Oh sorry... I see now there are more questions.
    Why do I like it? It blends the city theme and the wild/nature theme in a way that does not seem jarring, and yet seems original. The first image seems muddled, as the cityscape is large, and then the nature/wild image seems out of place or discordant rather than balancing.

    My reading habits: I read broadly, but not thriller books. Favorite books: To Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye, Call me Ishmael, the Harry Potter books, The Ladies Detective Agency novels, Kite Runner, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, etc.
