I recommend you judge the soon-to-be-released film (starring Leonardo DiCaprio) from the trailer below:

That is exactly what I thought when I saw the first cover – I think there are better covers now for that book – and I agree, the original has nothing to do with the story … Anyway, stopping in to see what others wrote for the Prompt – hope you have time to visit soon and read my take on it – Cheers!
