My rating for Disclaimer — 4
At first Disclaimer by Renée Knight seemed interesting but no my cup of tea, however the author kept the novel interesting and atmospheric. What I thought would be a tedious, turned out to be a great and unexpected read.
The twist in the novel, coming in the last half, seemed unexpected and absorbing. I was expecting some sort of a sudden ending which will wrap up the whole story in a nice, neat package. The ending, however, did not disappoint and left room for discussion.
The novel is clever, surprising and griping. I did not know which character I sympathize with until the end of this rollercoaster ride.
Catherine Ravenscroft waked up one day to find a book at her bedside, as she reads it she realizes that the book is about her and in it written things which only she knows, describing a secret she has guarded for over a decade. Catherine’s husband, Robert, is a successful businessman and their only son, Nicholas, just moved away but isn’t as successful as his parents hoped he’d be.
Stephen Brigstoke is a retired teacher who is determined to destroy Catherine and her family. Without the knowledge of the Ravenscroft’s he starts on a destructive path which will ruin them as well as him.
