I wonder how long it took the designer to find the most vulnerable-looking set of eyes he could. At first glance, the cover is effective, but a little bit too crowded. But the more of the book you read, the more you’ll realize that a face restricted to the frame of the book, buried underneath heavy type, and looking outwards to someone or something Is a perfect fit for the novel. Without spoiling the slowly revealed premise, the novel asks a lot of questions about human rights, technology, identity, and the sadness of accepting an inescapable situation. This cover just becomes better the closer you get to the end.
