    Default question about the books cover

I cant understand y the people who designed the cover made it blue instead. in the book they clearly say that blain is a pink monorail. could someone please explain to me why this is?

    This cover? Is it blue or just ghostly?

    My book does not have the train on the cover. Could it be a picture of Patricia, who was blue, while Blaine was pink?

    The copy I had of Waste Lands had a black train that showed a skull on the front. I don't take this train to be Blaine, but Charlie the choo choo. I think when you get to Wizard and Glass it will make sense. It is hard to explain further, without blowing the story.
    I hope this helps a little bit.

    I think they thought a blue and black cover would be more attractive than a pink one.
    Notice that all of the accents of the book are black and blue.

    They do it with all the copies. My version has a brown train:
    Maybe they thought pink would dissuade some people from reading it? I don't know.

    I always thought it was Charlie the Choo-Choo too, not Blaine.
