    Reasons I decided to read this book 1 I was bored2 It was the only book my mother owned that wasn t either a cookbook or how to knit a doily kind of book.3 It didn t look like she was taking me to the library anytime soon, so I had to settle.The category it fills on my bingo board is a book that has been made into a movie and it could also fall under A book with a main female character.What I hate about seeing a movie that has created from a beloved read of mine, is that nothing is quite rig Reasons I decided to read this book 1 I was bored2 It was the only book my mother owned that wasn t either a cookbook or how to knit a doily kind of book.3 It didn t look like she was taking me to the library anytime soon, so I had to settle.The category it fills on my bingo board is a book that has been made into a movie and it could also fall under A book with a main female character.What I hate about seeing a movie that has created from a beloved read of mine, is that nothing is quite right It might be the way that the casting is all wrong for the last damn time Annabeth s hair is blonde not bloody red All children of Athena mut have BLONDE hair Seriously Why is this so hard for the caster person to understand It might be that they do not move or sound at all the way you pictured or heard them in your head Why do you sound like a grizzly bear, Captain Haddock And sometimes the offense is serious, like when the scene from the perfect book has been taken and destroyed mercilessly at the hands of the director Dude Voldemort died like a regular man He fell to the floor with a mundane finality It was important Why the hell did he turn into butterflied in the movie.This was the terrible misfortune that befell Birthright The stupid director changed many of the main ideas of the book, till it was no longer the brutal, touching story of a strong ambitious girl, who finds herself orphaned even amongst her adoptive family and takes her future into her own hands till she succeeds in building herself a bright future, but the silly traipsing of a flirt who wins by stealing men s hearts.My favourite character was definitely Deborah De Kronengold She was such a strong, beautiful character that every reader could not help but to feel a connection with her We were also given the opportunity to watch Deborah s personality grow and change over the years In the beginning we met and fell in love with the bright, playful girl of around 7, who is witty and extremely cheeky, and has not yet discovered her true heritage At this stage in the novel, Deborah is carefree and happy, not a worry on her mind We cry with her as her adoptive father recklessly lets slip she is adopted and for the first time a seed of sadness and doubt is planted in her heart and watch as her personality becomesserious and insecure Why did her parents not want her Was she not good enough We delight as she grows to be stronger, bearing the hardships along the way and working hard and fighting for everything she believes in What I so admire about Deborah, is that in the time this book was written, women were just starting to work and they had certainly never owned their own business, and Deborah will not give up till she manages to fulfil her dream.My favourite quote is You adopted me, but you never truly accepted me as your own and for that, Leslie De Kronengold, you deserve every bit of misfortune about to befall you Yes, I loved this quote It really touched me because as a reader I was really beginning to feel a lot of personal hatred towards the fictional Mr Kronengold, who as Deborah said, adopted but never accepted her It really struck me that when Deborah said this, it was the voice of the vulnerable child who had been in desperate need of love or simply acceptance from her father and was instead given hatred and abuse, who spoke.Something I learnt, or rather that I was reminded of was that, the future really is up to you When times seem bleakest, fight because you know that you re not going to achieve anything by just sitting there and moping Hey Ms Berry Hope you re not too tired from marking our reviews Good Luck

    For me the best part was learning all the ins and outs of the finance world The story dragged a little for me, but I was intrigued enough to want to finish to find out how everything ties together in the end.

    I won this free through goodreads Simply elegant and an upcoming classic It was told very straight forward and in arelatable way than most stories The imagery was alright, but nothing spectatular and it had a steady, even flowing plot line I loved the ending and it took me around a week to complete of only reading it before bed It was very good, but not my kind of page turner Would be great foradults, and for spare time reading than for fun.

    This is one of my favorite books Don t confuse it with Nora Roberts book with the same Title This author, Joseph Amiel, writes a classic with his Birthright It is set in the financial world and shows what you can do with fortitude, even when the deck seems stacked against you.
