Brown rice

Anyone out there cook it much? I come from a white rice background and I'm trying to do better whole grain-wise. I've followed the directions (add to boiling water, cover and lower to simmer for 45 minutes, let it sit 10) but the results are more like oatmeal than rice. Is this normal for brown rice (Mahatma)? If so, is there any other way to prepare it where it retains it's rice shape more? I love the microwave brown rice/wild rice combo by Uncle Ben, but trying to save some money here when a whole bag of rice was only 2 dollars.
TIA!

I don't fix brown rice often...BUT I have noticed that it has a very different texture than white rice. To me it's almost chewy....so yeah, I agree it reminds me alot of oatmeal... I think it's just the difference in processing and the type of grain it is.

I also like to use a little less water than the directions state...I hate soupy/watery rice.

So, this is normal! Thanks, I'll give the decreased water method a try.
