Dust Jacket Spoiler?  Reply with quote  

Did anyone else think the graphic on the cover was a spoiler??

As the plot unfolded, I saw that graphic as a major clue to what happened at the end.

YES! I thought it totally was. I think I mentioned it in my first post about ADJ too. I'm so glad you agree with me. I was dissapointed, because usally I'm suprised about the plot twists, but I saw that coming from a mile away b/c of the stupid cover. Although it's cute, they should come up with something else for the paperback.

I think there were a lot of clues to the outcome unrelated to the cover. It didn't really bother me.

It didn't bother me either, but I am SO in love with that dust jacket. (I want to wear it to work monday). I kept stopping during reading and just starring at the dust jacket. It's amazing to me. Smile

I'm very tactile so I rubbed the dust jacket a lot. Embarassed

The cover did give it away somewhat. Yet I did not see "Kitty!" coming.

I'm glad other people thought that. I don't know how much my figuring out what was going on had to do with the dust jacket, but I felt like I figured it out way too early. Like as soon as the TV lawyer fish died.

I didn't connect the cover to the story, but I'm dull like that. I was sure Sophie would come save the day, or at least the hounds. The cover didn't give any hint of a 10 inch schlong.

Did anyone notice that ADJ wasn't a mystery?


The book, like life, was a journey to be taken, not an equation to be solved.


So, for instance, "We're taking the train through the Alps to Italy."
"Really? Italy? Well that's ruined now. I'm not looking out the window."

Kinky. I think we'd both like that. C'mere.
