    "I love reading and have always collected books with abstract covers. I was on the hunt for a new book and discovered this one. While the book itself wasn't bad, I wasn't all that impressed by the art on the cover. I feel that it could've been a lot more creative. I'm definitely going to search for something more abstract in the future."

    "The cover of "Stony Kill" is maybe not that abstract; I think I can see how it physically resembles something that is relevant to the story itself. Nonetheless, it is actually a very good book, especially considering this is the author's first work. It's realistic but also complex. I was surprised to not really see any other works from this author available as I think they showed potential, and I would have to recommend this book if you find the cover art to be specifically to your taste, as it were."

    "An important and impressively written work, by a twentieth century master of fiction. I wouldn't call this cover particularly abstract, it being rather plain and merely symbolic. One of the great anti-war novels of the modern age. "

    "Animal Farm is a good little book Unfortunately, it's been ripped from its historical context by modern readers and misinterpreted as a parable about how all attempts to create a better society result in totalitarianism."

    "Mystery fans have probably come across an Agatha Christie novel at one point or another, so they won't be surprised by anything in this novel. From what I remember about reading this one, it actually had a few decent twists on it's way to solving the murder. One of the better Miss Marple mysteries overall."
