The Way We Fall in Slovakia!

Courtesy of GoodReads, I’ve discovered The Way We Fall‘s Slovak cover and title!

They’ve used the same basic design as the N. American cover, but a slightly different background photo. Very interesting!

Anyone know what the title, Tak padne náš svet, means? Google Translate is telling me “This fits our world,” but that doesn’t sound quite right. I’m guessing it’s a phrase that doesn’t translate completely literally.

I’m also curious about the way my last name appears to have more letters than it normally would.

Any readers in Slovakia who pass by this way, take note: Also according to GoodReads, the Slovak edition will be out April 3rd. Less than a month away!

Hee--assuming Slovak is like Czech (and they are close enough to be dialects of each other, I'm told...), the extra letters are the female ending to your name. It's a pretty universal grammar rule, even with foreign names.

Whatever the title really means in Slovak, I'm sure it sounds very cool and marketable!

In my experience, I'd second your assumption about the name adjustment. When I was living in the Czech Republic, I saw in the bookstores many books translated from English and the "-ova" suffix was pretty much always added onto the surnames of female authors.

Very interesting! I don't mind having an alternate name. :)

Hi! In Czech it literally means, "so falls our world" and it does sound very cool. I can't imagine it would differ in Slovak. I love seeing all the foreign iterations of books.
