1
I don't think it needs the word quest
2
I don't really like the word quest added in
3
I don't think the word Quest helps
4
I prefer book titles to be shorter and more succinct, and I don't think adding the word "quest" into the title really does anything to make it more understandable or more catchy.
5
The word "quest" just seems superfluous and is confusing. The shorter title communicates the same exact idea.
6
The "quest" is unnecessary and awkward to say
7
I chose A because it was just a little bit shorter and still made the point. It still grabbed my attention.
8
it's a shorter and more punchy title that is quick to read and grasp
9
Quest seems like a superfluous word here.
10
anything with pirate in the title implies a quest of sorts. just feel the word ain't needed
11
A is more concise and holds my attention
12
I don't like the inclusion of Quest in the title. Not sure why, just a turn off.
13
Most likely, you'll only pick up a book if it has an intriguing title and cover design.In the hook, you grab your reader's attention with a memorable story or fact or question.
14
I don't like the word Quest in the title. Keep it simple for the buyer
15
The use of the word quest is too much
16
I feel like Option B comes across as a bit childish and immature by adding the word 'Quest'. It doesn't really need to be there in the first place.
17
The title is already long enough. Adding Quest is not needed and does not read well.
18
It's shorter, more direct and Quest doesn't add anything to the title
19
I feel like Quest is not needed to get the point of the title across.
20
Quest sounds like a bad Role Playing Game and not an interesting book.
21
The added "Quest" just makes the title seem clunky to me.
22
You don't need to word Quest in the title.
23
The extra word "Quest" is not needed.
24
I like the way this one flows better. Its a pretty long title and I think taking the 1 word out helps.
25
Sky Pirate Quest: The Treasure of a Thousand Kings is very wordy. Also, the title flows better without quest in the name.
26
I think it is a little shorter and to the point and that is desirable to me.
27
Sky Pirate kind of sounds like a joke, so Quest makes it sound more serious
28
B sounds too much like a hokey fantasy novel with a half naked woman on the cover.
29
Sky Pirate is quick and snappy, straight to the point, and sounds like the better main title.
30
I like my choice because it's shorter and easier to say. I think a good alternative would be "Sky Quest", though it takes the pirate aspect out of it.
31
The more succinct title grabs my attention better. The word Quest in option B makes the title read awkwardly in my head.
32
The quest makes me seem like it is longer then it possibly is. Also quest denotes some difficulty. Title without it changes nothing
33
Option B seems to be on the borderline of being redundant. Pirates are on quests, or they would not be pirates.
