Foreign Cover Friday: The Weight of Silence

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!

SO sorry to post and run, but I've got to go to work (won't be back until after midnight) right this second. I totally procrastinated doing this post until the last possible moment (I know--I'm the greatest, right?).

  1. I love all of the editions that have the little girl holding the music note necklace behind her pack! When working at Borders it always caught my eye and made me curious. ( of course I never got around to picking it up :s ) I really should one of these days

  2. I like the French one with the girl and the teddy bear but it's kind of creepy! I hope it's not a creepy book, splashing children all over the covers.

  3. Ooh, I really like the Portuguese and French versions. I honestly don't know much about this book, but those covers hint at lost/stolen innocence in a way the US cover doesn't, IMHO. I'd at least pick the book up off the shelf and read the blurb based on those two covers, but probably not so much on the US one.


  4. I like the cover that seems to be the main one. The one with her hands behind her back.

  5. I like the second English language one and the Portuguese one.


Thanks for commenting! I read each and every one, and reply as soon as I can :)

Please note: The Reading Fever is an award-free zone. I am very flattered, but comments are all the thanks I need.
