Great book on tape. Engrossing and beautifully and convincingly read. Compelling plot. I disagree with a reviewer who said characters were hard to relate to. I found Catherine to be very sympathetic.

What did you like best about Disclaimer: A Novel? What did you like least?
The first half or so of the novel felt suspenseful and kept me listening. The narratation was quite wonderful.
Would you ever listen to anything by Renée Knight again?
No, I will not. This book ended up being deeply upsetting in a way that makes me think I simply would not enjoy anything by this author. I am more than willing to engage with heavy or dark material, but there was a bleakness and hatefulness (not even that of individual characters, but of the narrative arc in general) in this book that I found distressing. It simply did not work for me.
What about Michael Pennington and Laura Paton ’s performance did you like?
The narrators did a fantastic job conveying a wide range of emotions.
Could you see Disclaimer: A Novel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Sadly, I expect this book will be made into a film -- or at least a Lifetime movie.... It will be a bummer.
Any additional comments?
I don't want to give away any plot points, but the worldview of this author is quite dark. The range of viciousness, misunderstandings, and lack of empathy and compassion were hard for me to take. What connection there was felt like glopped on sentimental dreck.
