    Arguably Laymon's most celebrated and most infamous novel, The Cellar is the first book in his Beast House Chronicles. Only the bravest tourists dare to venture inside the sealed-up Beast House, long rumored to be haunted. But the creature that lives in the cellar is no ghost, and its hungry!

    Story

    My performance complaints have nothing to do with Therese McLaughlin's reading; they have everything to do with the editing. This unabridged recording was compressed down to a shorter length by shortening the narrator's pauses. This made scene breaks hard to follow, particularly when the author picked up the pace in the final chapters. I had to rewind the last few scenes several times to fully understand the story, and by then the surprise ending was no longer a surprise. The story was still gruesome and morbidly entertaining, but I would have enjoyed it more had I read it rather than listened.
