REGINA'S SONG

Okay, I finished Regina's Song. It was pretty good but it was totally predictable. I know that most literature is a little predictable but Eddings set it up very early. He starts giving you the idea about half way through the book who the killer is. I figured it was too easy so I thought it had to be someone else. It wasn't. It wasn't a terrible read but it definitely wasn't the best. I apologize to those who did read it. Let's talk September's selection.

SciFiDwarf, I agree with you for the most part. I also thought it was too easy to figure out who the killer was. Probably one of the reasons I kept on reading it was to find out that I was wrong and there was some great surprise twist coming up!

Overall, I can’t really say that it was a four star selection for me – it was a bit too “cutsie pootsie” (to steal one of descriptions from the book itself). The dialogue really started to annoy me after a while. In spite of that, I found myself looking forward to reading it each day. Go figure. Maybe it was the novelty of reading it on my new Kindle!

Anyway, thanks for suggesting it – I look forward to the next selection and also hearing from other members who read “Regina’s Song.”

That's a good way to put it Dana. I am glad to say that I read it though. It is a different type of book I usually read and my goal is to expand my horizons. I definitely won't read it again though.

Yes, I am glad I read it as well. What you said about expanding your horizons -- that's why I participate in book clubs!

Just curious, with a screen name like SciFiDwarf, am I wrong in thinking you are a science fiction aficionado?

You got me. I love them all. Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5, Farscape. You name it I probably like it (unless it is a Sci Fi Original Picture, those are usually stupid). We are science fiction geeks in my house. The dwarf part comes from me being short.

You sound like my kind of people… I love it all, being a Star Trek fan from the days of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Boy, did my family tease me about that. They still do! I’ve been enjoying the “Eureka” series, even though the Sci Fi channel generally disappoints me. Such potential wasted …

I love "Eureka." It is such a funny, quirky, show. It really is creative. SciFi channel disappoints me sometimes too. They seem to cancel top shows (i.e. "Sliders" and "Farscape"). I guess we should start a new group for sci-fi fans since this is the book club group huh? I don't really like reading sci-fi so we should do that.
