It's just my luck that the moment I gave up on anyone wanting to participate in FCF and took down the Linky, I had people who participated! I'm sorry I didn't have a Linky for the past two FCF posts, but there is definitely one this week, and will continue to be one in each post.
Thanks so much for participating! :)
Foreign Cover Friday is a weekly meme hosted by me (The Reading Fever), where foreign covers of the books we know and love are spotlighted and discussed. To join, either pick your favorite foreign cover, or pick many foreign covers, and start discussing!
This week's featured cover is:
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
French translation of words at the bottom: "In the world of extreme beauty, normal people are at risk."
Spanish translation: Betrayal
Lithuanian translation: Ugly
Words under title: "Not lose its own face." (Apparently Google translate couldn't handle that one....)
German words under title: "Do not lose your face." (Not sure it could handle that one, either.)
I liked the Indonesian cover until I noticed the eye on the very left...it just creeps me out. Don't have any problems with the other two covers; the middle one is a nice variation of the original, and the cover on the right shows what enhancements could be considered cool in the book.
Indonesian words translated: "The world's incredible beauty, everyone is ugly." (Google is really letting me down today.)
First Portuguese cover translated: Ugly
Second Portuguese cover translated: Imperfect
Serbian translation: Monster
Bulgarian translation: Ugly
Thai Translation: Accra Daily (Does this sound right to anyone else? Google totally failed.)
What are your thoughts?
Which covers do you like? Which do you hate?
Thanks for joining me for Foreign Cover Friday!
