The Ruins

WEIRD! Top is the hardcover, below is the paperback. I LOVED the hardcover when it came out last year. It was done by Peter Mendelsund. I think the paperback definitely got the mass-market treatment - it seems like it's for another audience.

For the record, the book is a literary horror yarn about a group of American colleg kidz who vacation in Mexico and just like the stereotypical clueless privileged Americans they are, get lost in the jungle and find a whole heap of trouble. Some of this trouble involves a killer plant.
