From the moment I began reading this book I was hooked. The writer was extremely skilled at giving just enough away while still keeping you in the dark and wishing you could figure it out. It was exciting, suspenseful, and generally great.

From the Author
I had wondered at the possibility for years that something man made and frequently used could alter our very existence. I wondered if it could theoretically happen and what the circumstances surrounding an oversight of this magnitude would have to be and I became so enamored of the idea that I eventually began to become more obsessive than anything. When it came to the point that I could no longer put up with myself I finally set about writing a story that embodied the more dramatic aspects of my creative imagination gone hopelessly awry the result of which was Birthright. I've been sitting on Birthright for about eight years and have just discovered the courage thanks to the undying support and strength of the love of my life to actually post my writing though now I leave it to you, the reader, to judge the worth of my work.

Now, the reviewers: Her husband identified himself as such and can't be faulted for being a proud husband. Michael B. Mitchell provided a bad review without reading it simply because he 'thought' he couldn't share it? That's really dreadful and shows what kind of person he is. Odysseus called it utter trash....really???? I have read glowing reviews, bought books, and quickly removed them from my Kindle and from my account. This was not one of them.
I actually enjoyed this Kindle 'book'. An intriguing story with interesting characters and I would have liked to have known a little more at the end. I hope Ms. Palmer is not put off and continues writing. The writing is, without doubt, wordy and some of the better reviews had good points. There are a number of places where a line should have started as a new paragraph or even as a new chapter. Ms. Palmer has an excellent and enviable vocabulary and once I got into the rhythm of her writing, I found myself involved in her manner of storytelling. And what's wrong with being self-published? I would guess that it takes quite a bit of courage to put something that one has labored over out there for everyone to critique and believe we should be encouraging new writers with positive comments and not viciously undermining them.
I think Shakespeare might have been impressed, but I find it exhausting.
On another note, the author can obviously write, and has had a good idea for a book, but execution needs to be worked on. More content & storyline, less tangential meandering.

Character development was exceptional. Plot was excellent. As always the devil is in the details. In this story the details almost destroys the telling. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Norman McNeese
Liked the constant uncertainty. The characters were nicely defined and the plot line evolved well. I enjoyed a book that ends on a high note.Published 22 months ago by Aero11
Good read about the fear of excellence and growth in human kind. I think the editing suffered a bit towards the end.Published on April 1, 2014 by Laurina Ward
I thought this book was fun to read. It started out kind of bizarre but all was explained and then made sense. I would recommend it.Published on December 6, 2013 by Hard Sci-Fi Guy
RJ Palmer's "Birthright" contains the elements of a decent story, but the poor quality of the writing inhibits much of the enjoyment. Read morePublished on October 15, 2013 by Amazon Customer
The book takes a while to get into. Sometimes the scene building is excessively long. Overall a decent book to read.Published on September 8, 2013 by Amazon Customer
The basic story is a good one. I have only one suggestion. Use fewer words! It really takes a page and a half for a woman to turn around and look at someone? Read morePublished on August 11, 2013 by Amazon Customer
