Book Description

"Lily?"

My stomach dropped as a tall, dark-haired man stepped into view. Had he been hiding between the trees?

"No. Sorry." Gulping, I took a step back. "I'm not Lily."

He shook his head, a satisfied grin on his face. "No. You are Lily."

"I'm Summer. You have the wrong person." You utter freak!

I could hear my pulse crashing in my ears. How stupid to give him my real name. He continued to stare at me, smiling. It made me feel sick.

"You are Lily," he repeated.

Before I could blink, he threw his arms forward and grabbed me. I tried to shout, but he clasped his hand over my mouth, muffling my screams. My heart raced. I'm going to die.

For months Summer is trapped in a cellar with the man who took her—and three other girls: Rose, Poppy, and Violet. His perfect, pure flowers. His family. But flowers can't survive long cut off from the sun, and time is running out...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Cellar 6 Sept. 2014
By Kat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Stockholm syndrome, a twisted psychopath and a dedicated boyfriend. These are the three phrases that defined The Cellar for me.

Summer is a teenager who finds herself kidnapped on her way to a party. Imprisoned in a cellar by Colin/Clover she finds there are three other girls with her that have been held for varying lengths of time – Rose, Poppy and Violet, and Summer herself is renamed Lily. Clover is obsessed with flowers, and that’s exactly what he calls the girls, Flowers.

The Cellar flicks through multiple perspectives – Summer, her boyfriend Lewis and Clover himself. I don’t think it was in any particular order, and the length/frequency of them varies as the story progresses – sometimes short and sometimes long, it was actually one of the best multiple perspectives I’ve read in a while – I was interested in all sides of the story.

The Cellar doesn’t get REALLY dark – it does get pretty grim and in your face, but it’s not the kind of book that had me checking around at night to make sure there wasn’t a kidnapper under my bed or hiding in the garden. Which also makes it odd, because there are some very intense scenes, and Clover is completely insane.

What I’m not quite sure of is how I felt about Summer – at times shes strong and determined, a little impulsive and pretty up-front, but she also focuses completely on missing her boyfriend, not her family or other things about being outside the cellar, like, well blue sky for example, or sunshine. That’s the part that really didn’t ring true, I felt like there was just too much focus on her and Lewis, rather than all the other things she was being deprived of.

One other thing that I found a little jarring, was that the book is set in England but the language is very Americanised.

5.0 out of 5 stars My mind has blown 16 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This isn't a normal book - stating the obvious, it's easy to write, but to drag your audience through doors of emotional highs and lows is a gift.

The book is basically about Clover, a man who is mentally unstable, who searches for the perfect family after his mother's passing. Of course, he didn't have the idealistic upbringing hence explaining his twisted views on how his family should act. Personally, the theme of flowers is a constant throughout and makes it seem as if the girls are something that have been taken from their home and placed into an opposite scenario.

I can't praise the author enough, her writing is clear and doesn't seem as if she has swallowed thesaurus looking for connotations of "the". Another thing I have to mention is how the book is not degraded into pornography with the rape or go into detail about deaths. I plan on buying all of her other books after reading this, I can't express my gratitude for her original ideas and words that are worth millions.

Gripping, keeps you on the edge of your chair the whole way through, would have liked to see what Clover had to say when he was captured but as true story then may not have been possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 29 April 2014
By CycleRacing HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a well written book.

Summer is a sixteen year old girl, who leads a fairly innocent and naive life before she is taken by Clover, a man who wants to keep her, supposedly to look after or protect her. Clover is not a nice man though. He has a string of crimes behind him and is at best evil.

I like the different angles that the story is told from. It is written from the minds of different characters in the book. The abuser, the victim, a loved one.

It is a scary read in some ways, but it also is something that shows how human spirit and strength can pull through. It is a first class thriller.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 1 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved this book. It made such a refreshing change from all the YA/NA Romance stories I've been reading lately. This is my kind of story.

Summer Robinson is an innocent 16 year old girl, getting through her teenage years as best she can. She has a boyfriend, Lewis, who adores her. She is happy.

But all that changes the instant she is abducted by a man calling himself Clover. She is to become one of his 'flowers'. He will 'protect' them from the outside world, looking after them as he sees fit.

But this so called protection is a very twisted version. He is as twisted as his mind obviously is, and he is extremely deluded. He is also a murderer, an abuser, and extremely evil.

The book is told from various POV's. We obviously have Summers, and Clovers. But we also have Lewis' POV too. This allows us to delve inside all of the main characters, as well as the backgrounds of the others involved.

It becomes so much more than a simple abduction story. It becomes a story of survival, friendship in extreme circumstances, and belief also.

I cannot praise this book enough. There is so much more I could easily say about it, but I don't want to go into too much detail. In my opinion the only way to enjoy this story is preorder it yourself and read it as soon as it is released. If you enjoy thrillers, murder and mystery, you can't fail to enjoy this book.

A highly recommended read from me.

Whilst there is a fairly good story line, this novel sadly lacks the creative description that draws you in. Bland and repetitive.
