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.

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.

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.

After reading this i can gladly say i have completed all of Natasha Prestons books, her work is incredible - and The Celler is definatley a must read. I was indroduced by one of my dads friends and can honestly say these books are worth not having a social life for. Make sure you get the rest of her work!!!!!!

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.

This story was compulsive reading. It has well drawn characters and handles the differences between past and present well. Breathtaking!
