    Disappointing

    I have read all of the work that David Eddings has produced and this by far was the worst story i have read. The dialogue gets to the point that it is annoying, the story feels more like a list of things ie. I went to the bookshelf, i picked up the book, i walked to the desk etc. Its horribly boring and a dissappointment to people who loved Eddings' style of writing.

    Not Enough & Way Too Much

    Be warned that this review contains a fw minor spoilers. 'Regina's Song' promises an incredibly interesting concept that the authors never fully deliver. The mysterious bond between the twins Regina and Renata never gets fully explained, not in any way that is satisfying. The story reads more like a mystery novel (which was fine with me, because I love that genre just as much as fantasy), but with no warning, a supernatural element is introduced two-thirds of the way into the book. Up until that point, the book moves all too slowly, especially for a mystery novel. Elements that are horribly unnecessary bog down the story. While at first I liked the main character who tells the story, I eventually disliked him which is the worst thing that can possibly happen in a first person novel. Mark turns out to be a know-it-all who constantly noses his way into other people's business. No sooner had I celebrated that the book was finally advancing its plot than the authors hit the brakes again. This time, with a compentency hearing which reiterates *everything* from the first two-thirds of book. In the end, I felt the Eddings needed to commit to a genre. Either they should have abandoned the supernatural element altogether, or they should have focused more on the fanastic elements in Renata's life. Considering how minimal the supernatural element was, they probably should have ditched that. As awful as this might sound, I was even disappointed in the way they handled the murder of Regina. That murder is crucial to the book, and the finer details that would give that scene life are lacking. In the end, I wanted less of the main character preaching about literature, carpentry and religion. What I did want was a whole lot more of the murder mystery. If Mark had built one more set of bookshelves or taught one more class in that book, I would have screamed.
