US beats the UK editions hands-down. Even though I live I’m in the commonwealth I ordered the US editions to be shipped over. What’s not perfect about them?

As a whole I prefer the US edition of this series; they have a uniformity and clean look to them that appeals to me. The grunge look of the UK series doesn’t cut it for me, though in all honesty it’s the cover of Catching Fire that ruins the set. If it had had a different design it would have been a close call otherwise!
