    These are all cool but I think I like the second one best.

    The blood splattered camera is pretty powerful.

      Yes, “powerful” is the word that came to my mind as well.

    I like the Signet cover with everyone in their jumpsuits. These all beat my boring white cover!

      That is a very thought provoking cover.

    I love the 2nd cover and also the 7th. They’r all great though.

    I think the Penguin Modern Classics cover and the very first cover are my favorites. I’m not sure why though!
