This week’s theme is: A BOOK YOU’VE READ THAT WAS TRANSLATED FROM ANOTHER LANGUAGE!  

A different kind of topic.  Not one I’m familiar with answering very much on a week to week basis, but it is worth taking a look at, especially since I never even think about whether my fantasy first saw publication in another language.  But one did come to mind.

ORIGINAL COVER

I am almost positive this is the original cover for the book.  It was published in 2005 by Альфа-книга.  I’m also almost one hundred percent certain the publication language is Russian since the author is from the Russian Federation.  If I’m wrong about any of this, please correct me so I can correct my error.

FAVORITE COVERS

Nothing especially unique about these two covers, but they both catch the eye.

LEAST FAVORITE COVERS

None of these are absolutely horrible, I guess, but they aren’t very good either.  Or,a t least, they aren’t what I look for in fantasy covers.

So what do you think.  Agree?  Disagree?

    I remember when we both read that book. I’m just glad there are people like Sergei Lukyanenko to redeem my faith in modern Russian writing.
