WHAT do you think of these book covers? They belong to the covers of Australian novelist Bryce COURTENAY’s latest novels: The Persimmon Tree (2007) and Fishing for Stars (2008), both published by Penguin Australia.

Both the cover is gorgeous but I think it does not represent the whole story of the book (I don't know what's the story about. But from my understanding, The persimmon tree is an 'orange' tree, orange means lively. Perhaps the orange cover need to exchange with the other one.

While fishing for star, from my understanding is an attempt to move on from something that the character has lost or she just wake-up from a bad life.

I prefer the first cover. I like the orange colour. Both depict the exotic east for a western readership.

They're attractive - but not in a good way. Too cliched.
