It's quite a bizarre book, but I enjoyed it. Several twists and turns keeps you wondering just what the heck is going on. The end is a dazzler!
One of the most disappointing books I have ever read. I love Eddings' series "The Belgariad" and "The Mallorean," so I was excited to read something of his that wasn't fantasy. Wow, was I let down.
The dialogue alone is enough to nauseate. I've never seen so many cliches in one novel; the characters are silly, sad and unbelievable; the science is way off (dental records can establish difference between identical twins, Mr. Eddings); and the dialogue, the dialogue, the dialogue... you need a vat of Extra-Strength Pepto Bismol to keep from spewing vomit all over the pages of this book... the dialogue is SO BAD. "Sack rat"??? Who the heck says that? "Dockie-poo"??? The list is endless. Every paragraph contains a cliche or a term that's so outrageously awful that you want to rip the book in half, set it on fire and drown it in a vat of acid.
Only read this book if you want to torture yourself. Better yet, send it as a gift to people you hate.
This is an unusual book from the Eddings. It is compeling but took a bit to get into at first. Very different from some of their other books/series.
I love David and Leigh Eddings writing. I've read the Belgariad and Malloreon series as well as the Prequels countless times. I enjoyed reading The Redemption of Althalus, but Regina's Song was not their best. I would not recommend this book to be your first or only encounter of the Eddings' writings. My advice is to start with a Prequel if you don't have the time to be thoroughly sucked into and epic fantasy series.
This book kept me guessing not as muchof a ghost story as i expected, but i did enjoy it.
Haunting and wonderful...
this is about twins that are identical that no one knows them apart. one is murdered with the twin being traumatised with no knowledge of who she is or what happened. books has a lot of surprises till the end.
This is an amazing book! A step away from their usual high fantasy, David and Leigh Eddings do a fabulous job!
A good mystery and scare/thrill! You're on the edge of your seat until the very end!
Regina and Renata are truly identical twins. They are so strikingly alike, even their mother can't tell them apart. Since their DNA is identical and their infant footprint records were lost by the hospital, no one can be sure which is which. This doesn't bother the twins. In fact, they're inseparable--until one of the young women is murdered. The other has no memory of the event, no idea who she is. In her near-total amnesia, she can remember only family friend Mark, who has always been a surrogate big brother to the twins. And Mark finds himself fearing that the effects of the trauma don't end with amnesia, for now a series of vicious murders terrorizes Seattle, accompanied by the howl of wolves.
