Escapism of the bookish sort.
OK so I like the colour and I like the way the ship is integrated into the writing but it doesn't say distress signals to me. I don't know what it's about. War story perhaps? Political intrigue? It wanted a light flare across the book from the ship - that would have been a distress signal.I'll be interested to see what others think.
I look at that cover and think 'something is going to happen to the ship' though I don't really get a sense of what it might be. For me what the cover really needs are a few shark fins in the water!
I'm a sucker for this combination of color. Love dak blue, and black. Also love open waters images. Very creepy!
I like the colors but would like it better if the ship actually looked to be in some sort of distress. Even just some smoke coming off the ship would help.
Oooh I am curious! A book on a ship sounds pretty good- especially since I wonder who/what is in distress!
I swear this year is the Year Of Blue Covers. :)
