Friday Face-Off – 21st February 2020

Friday Face-Off – 21st February 2020

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 theme is a cover featuring a dog: “It would perhaps not be amiss to point out that he had always tried to be a good dog.” For this I return to Stephen King and his novel Cujo.

Cover A:

dog1

Cover B:

dog2

Cover C:

dog3

Cover D:

dog4

Cover E:

dog5

Cover F:

dog6

Cover G:

dog7

Cover H:

dog8

And the winner is… COVER A!

This one is so intimidating. I can only imagine being the occupants of the car, trapped, unable to escape. I can imagine how awful it would be as the heat in the car would rise and only being able to see the snarling fangs of the dog in the mirrors. 

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 featuring a ring for the leap year: “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
