About the Author

Hi there. I'm R.J. Palmer and I'm told that I should write a little something about myself at which point I should probably tell you that if you slog through this I give you kudos, you've done very well. You see, there is nothing the least bit interesting about me and in truth sometimes I believe that I live vicariously through characters of my own creation in which case I should probably seek professional help straightaway. I could bore you with dry facts recited by rote but that would be contra-indicative of my personality type which demands that I at least make this somewhat interesting regardless of the enormity of the task involved. Easier said than done I can assure you. Good God, you guys want to know MORE about me? Okay, fine then. Here goes. My husband has longish brown hair and pretty hazel eyes. Ooohhhh, wait. That had nothing to do with me, did it? You can blame Wodke Hawkinson for this bio because you really got me onto having to think about the least related answer while tying it all together. Should I get more serious now? Nah! Here's the 411 on the Head Wingnut in Charge...Or at least I am in my head. I'm an awesome writer and I buy in bulk whenever possible because the dozens of kids that I have eat a LOT! Okay, so that was a bit of an exaggeration but they seem like dozens when they all get going. Can I get an "Amen?" And why does it seem like all of them like to get an ornery attitude at the exact same time? Do they synchronize their watches and plan this stuff ahead of time? One of my favorite colors is that orangey yellow of the school bus even though it's a horrible eye sore. Okay, now that you all know I'm a writer with a husband and children, I could let you know that I like to drink Guinness stout and I got mad when they took the widget out of the bottle. You know, that little plastic thingy that made noise when you were getting the stuff that looks like coffee grounds (Mmmm...coffee) out of the bottom of your beer bottle. I think people decided that the widget took up too much space that could've been better used for more beer. Not that I don't understand, I guess I just like crunchy beer or something like that. I like to chew that last swallow of my stout. I'm going to stop this bio before it gets any more idiotic. You can find me at http://rjpalmer.blogspot.com

This should have been an excellent story ( yes, Mr Robbins, in the style of Dean Koontz!) but it was spoiled by the author's writing style. If she had let go of her penchant for describing everything in three or four convoluted ways, the book would have been half as long, but much better.

The story itself, although not a new idea,was exciting, when I could get past all the long drawn out sentences and rogue formatting.

And if there had to be more than one Point of View, next time could they be at the start of a new chapter, please? It tended to get very confusing when there was no visible switch.

I hope that RJ Palmer continues writing but cuts back on all the descriptions and cliches - her actual story would have stood up on its own without so much of them.

I really wanted to like this book and kept hoping that by the end I could have least have said the story was worth it, unfortunately it got lost in the words - and there are a lot of them!! It was as though the author wrote a good story and thought it was too short so opened a thesaurus and added every word and sentence possible. "he could acquiesce to the demands of his body.." "her body invited though her mind was as yet recalcitrant" - I could go on believe me it never stops and this unfortunately spoils the story. I was excited when I first started it as it reminded me of an early Dean Koontz but it soon just got lost in meaningless words. This sadly left me feeling frustrated and disappointed with the end.

I barely made it 5% into this book before giving up. I have never come across such a tortured writing style before - and I am a prolific reader. The book appears to be some kind of study in the use of simile and metaphor. These are used in long, complex sentences with very limited use of commas. The result is having to re-read sentences constantly to try to ascertain the meaning. Very quickly, this becomes just not worth the effort.

Will certainly avoid this author in the future.

I agree with the other reviews on this book, but the author's husband has written that the book is to be "polished" and re-released.

I found it extremely difficult to skim read when there was such a desparate need of paragraphs, one minute I was reading about Raine and then suddenly, one of the other characters.

I did want to mention that when reading how Raine was re-united with his wife in the hospital, all of my body came out in goose bumps, that has to be due to the excellent writing skills of the author.

Birthright is a well crafted book written by a very articulate author. Although I admired her writing skills I have to agree with a previous review that the book is very "wordy" and certainly is a case of why use two words when you can use ten. Having said that I did read through to the end although at times I found my mind straying from the story which incidentally was quite good though not an original story line.

I read hundreds of books a year, and generally speaking I will give it my all to get to the end of a story. Half-way through this one and I had to give up.

The story idea is really good, and the characters themselves interesting. I wanted to finish the book I really did. Unfortunately it appears the author swallowed a thesaurus and spewed words onto the page with total abandon. Often whilst reading a paragraph I would completely 'lose the plot' and have to start reading over. After doing this dozens of times I conceded my defeat and deleted it from the Kindle.

Having read hundreds of books over the years I have to say that this is easily the worst book I have ever read. It is wordy and over descriptive and in places there are whole sentences that make no sense. The author's writing style really detracts from the story and by the end of the book I found myself not really caring about any of the characters. By the way, I can't find the word 'conscienceless' in any dictionary!

Sorry to say I have given up reading this book at around 25%. It is very very hard going. I found myself reading a page then thinking what was that about and reading it again still not able to follow the story. Yes there are chapters but what has happened with the paragraphs its runs from one line to the next. Only positive thing to say is this book was free.
