The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover for the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rat. For this theme I’ve gone with James Herbert’s The Rats.

Cover A:

rats1

Cover B:

rats2

Cover C:

rats3

Cover D:

rats4

Cover E:

rats5

Cover F:

rats6

Cover G:

rats7

And the winner is… COVER D!

A swarm of rats teeming out from under the bridge is a pretty unnerving. It’s a moody and atmospheric cover. 

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next week’s theme is a cover that depicts First Contact – “Ack, Ack, Ack, we come in peace”
