Publisher's Summary

"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....

    Story
    "Boring, bland, non climactic and predictable."

    I kept waiting and waiting for a twist to happen. No twists, no surprises. The same thing happens over and over with painful repetitiveness. The narrator sounded as bored as I felt. There was absolutely no suspense. Ending was just as plainly written and bland as the rest of the book. I was thankful when it was over. My worst audiobook choice so far.

    "ONLY OKAY"

    Listening to Summer cry all the time got old and I felt the ending was anti-climactic. Half way into it, I just wanted it to be over and was really hoping the ending would save it for me, but it didn't. It wasn't horrible, was just kind of a boring read.

    Story
    "Interesting antagonist, meh ending"

    Solid book, I like that the girls were all distinguishable and had their own characters. Clover was the most interesting character he was a mix of Norman Bates, Holden Caulfield, and he Don Quan Killer from Gotham, he's likely one of the creepiest villains I've ever read

    I feel like the ending was realistic but kind of flat. Was hoping for more "justice" than just the cops got it and it's over. It makes sense if there was a sequel or series to this book. Like this whole time the girls wanted to "do something to get out" and I feel like it was building up to nothing. Like yeah that's a realistic ending but that doesn't make it a good ending.

    Story
    "Flowers: A Lesson in Survival"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cellar to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because you could feel the anger in Clover rise, and the fear in the girls.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Never knowing when he was going to "lose it."


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    That's a very hard question to answer, everyone has their own style!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't Give Up!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book! Read it in one sitting!

    "I liked the story but..."
    Would you try another book from Natasha Preston and/or the narrators?

    I would try another book by Natasha Presion. I liked the story/plot, but the writing seemed really repetitive. I felt like I was listening to the same scene over and over again. As well as the same phrases over and over again. I greatly disliked the female narrator, she sounded bored and whiny most of the time. I thought the male narrators were great.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't think I would have changed the story, but I would have tried to vary the dialogue of the girls, it was incredibly repetitive and didn't seem to propel the story forward at all.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I thought the male narrators were great. Their tone and inflection matched what it sounded like the characters were feeling.


    Was The Cellar worth the listening time?

    I'm glad that I finished it, the story at least made me want to do that; despite the female narrator and repetitiveness of the girls in the story. However, I don't think I'll be recommending it to any of my friends.

    Story
    "Tales of the unstable"

    I absolutely loved this book! Loved how there were alternate voices to the different characters! Well thought!! I think it was great how the story with all of the main characters were closed. The story wasn't ended with a cliffhanger. I will say there were some bobbing points within the story. Just when you think our characters will see the light of day (figuratively and physically speaking) the rug is snatched from underneath them. Even at the very end you think that everything will pan out decently and somewhat in a supportive manner for the characters. It doesn't! Which to me was great! This story definitely kept me guessing and had me turning page after page! Awesome tale of an individual who was clinically insane!

    Good listen - very aimed at a teenage audience though. I enjoyed it, but it could have been better.
