The Legacy

The Legacy - Kirsten Tranter I have a serious problem with this book - why is the grammar/writing so weird?
Is it just me or does the normal law of a sentence which has a subject followed by the verb and ends with the object been turned around all the time in this book?
It doesn't read like Australian English and it certainly doesn't feel like idiomatic American English either.
The writer has a rather irritating habit of mixing first person/third person view within the same paragraph, which makes it really hard to figure out what is going on during a conversation.
