Disclaimer by Renee Knight

About halfway through this book, I hated everyone involved (with the great exception of Catherine,) including, and this is saying something, the author. But I’m glad I gritted my teeth and got to the end, because it was well worth it. In Disclaimer, people are awful to each other because they seek to assuage their inner pain, and make up their own truths because they can neither face nor understand reality. I thought what happened to Catherine in the middle incredibly unfair (hence why I was so angry with the author) so was thoroughly pleased with the denouement and, especially, the decision she made (because fuck Robert.) I did think what happened to Stephen rather harsh (and frankly melodramatic;) the poor man had already suffered enough. But quite a clever novel, overall.
