The Cellar – Natasha Preston

Book 79 of 100

I really enjoyed this one.  It’s pretty dark; there’s kidnapping, murder and rape, but overall the story was good.  It was tense and fast paced, and I connected pretty well with the characters.  I thought that the writing seemed a little amateur, and I thought the end was a little bit anti-climactic, but if you like creepy thrillers then you should check this one out.

Rating: 4 out of 5
