Across the Universe

Apparently traveling 300 years in a ship still does nothing for racial tolerance. As The Interrobangs Blog has pointed out. Elder has been photo-shopped very badly in an attempt to make him seem less ethnic. You can see pictures and everything by clicking on over.


  1. I liked this book but didn't like it as much as most people seemed to (or as I wanted to). It's interesting to see the "whitewashing" of the cover even though you can't really tell the color of the faces since they're in so much shadow. While I loved the starry effect of the cover on this book, those faces really rubbed me the wrong way. They looked very generic to me.

  2. Thanks for letting us know. I have it on my to read list, and will be watchful of that aspect.
    It's sad, that such a popular book (debuted #7 on NYT best seller list) had to be white washed...
