Erm, what is that thing on the cover supposed to be? Not the human, the other thing with the eye and institution haircut.

Just noticed a purple thing with a Beatle cut. What's that please?

Its an insect that plays a part in the story, eating out of a broken dolls head (It's a shame kindle covers are so small). You can see he's kept things simple with the cover of the second which I think pays off, they're both great reads though. Let me know what you think if you do read it.

Ah, I can see the dolls head now. I didn't notice the pursed lips. It looked like some limbless thing with one eye, an unfortunate nose and a harelip at first glance.
Yes, the second books cover is certainly more "simple". Bit dark though.

And is the bloke taking a pee against the door?

Oye! ... stop taking the pysh!
Call me a cynic (experience, long in the tooth:) couldn't help but notice all 5* reviews are one-offs? Again, just cynical.

True, though the darkness ties in with the setting of the second book. And no, just because a man has his back to you doesn't mean he's taking a 'pee', especially if both his hands are in his pockets. I wouldn't get hung up on the cover (as the old saying goes) as you'd be missing out on the story itself, which really is fantastic. It's good to see someone taking interest!

In fairness, admit to the cover being quite artistic - bold yet intriguing.

Haha I can't blame you for being cynical, but you've hit the main reason I started this discussion. I genuinely believe its 5 star material, but it just hasn't got much coverage yet (though the other reviews are favourable). I'm just recommending it to others in the hopes that they'll feel the same way that I do about it's quality, and this seemed to be a good way to do so. I'm sure the author would also like to get some more feedback, be it negative or positive.

Suppose it's alright, though I keep seeing the one-eyed thing with the lip and nose instead of a dolls head. And there is an angry cats face on the "not peeing mans" hat. The cover is almost Boschian!!!!!

Yup, Ri ! - though without the "Armageddon" :)
Anyhow, I've had my Bosch fridge/freezer since 1994 (second hand) ... it's travelled overseas and still going strong... hand on heart true.

Well no matter how hard you look at the cover I ensure you that reading the book itself will explain all. I see where you're coming from and criticism is fine, but I do hope you'll have something to say about the book itself eventually, well worth a read.

... any consolation, can't really make out the doll's head - must look inside my fridge :)

Talking of Bosch, Scott Walkers new LP is called Bish Bosch. He's gone all weird; not my cup of tea. Prefer his Walker Brothers and '60's solo stuff. NN.

Think that the cover being compared to the Dutch painter (H Bosch) is quite an honourable comparison. Obviously it has evoked artistic interest.

There's no doubt about that, I just feel people might be judging this book too much by its cover. If you do read it I'd like to hear your thoughts :)

By some, a book is "literally" judged by it's cover. Some may find the cover enhancing/read me... others may not/cover too over-powering. Each to his/her own.

Call me a cynic but you seem to be a bit obsessive about this book. Would I be right in thinking that you have a personal relationship with the author? Also, you won't exactly endear yourself to the regular posters on here if you start telling us what to discuss. You've mentioned the book, if we want to read it we will, now we'll discuss whatever we want.

Right, about my old and faithful Bosch fridge... if only it could speak it would be tri-lingual (at least!) Culinary multi-cultural, haute cuisine then back to basics offering me (sometimes offending, festering) left overs...It's over fed and completely pyshed (at times:)

It wasn't my intention to force the topic upon people, I was just hoping for more comments that were related to the actual discussion topic itself, hence why I created it. Didn't mean to cause any offence.

I like a bit of Bosch myself. Only the one Michael Connelly writes about mind you. I can't be doing with all that "art"
