 ‘Muna’s fortunes changed for the better on the day that Mr and Mrs Songoli’s younger son failed to come home from school.’
Before then her bedroom was a dark windowless cellar, her activities confined to cooking and cleaning. She’d grown used to being maltreated by the Songoli family; to being a slave.
She’s never been outside, doesn’t know how to read or write, and cannot speak English.
At least that’s what the Songolis believe.
But Muna is far cleverer – and her plans more terrifying – than the Songolis, or anyone else, can ever imagine…
I absolutely loved reading this new book The Cellar by Minette Walters. The character Muna who speaks the language of Hausa is totally a different. Muna has been stolen from an orphanage in Africa. Mrs & Mr Songoli keep Muna as a slave cooking and cleaning, making her sleep in a windowless cellar. The Songoli family think that Muna can’t speak English. But Muna is much more cleaver than the family realise. Mr and Mrs Songoli’s son failed to come home from school and is missing. The story becomes even more darker when other suspenseful creepy things start to happen to the point where no reader can ever imagine what is going to happen next. I highly recommend this psychological, suspense novel.
