Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin

Links on Amazon and Goodreads

What it’s about:

She is a housewife—young, healthy, blissfully happy. He is an actor—charismatic and ambitious. The spacious, sun-filled apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side is their dream home—a dream that turns into an unspeakable nightmare. . . .  Enter the chilling world of Ira Levin—where terror is as near as your new neighbors . . . and where evil wears the most innocent face of all. . . .

My thoughts:

This is one of those few books where I find myself thinking, hey the movie wasn’t half bad at all. In fact, it helped to picture Mia Farrow as Rosemary while I was reading the book (yeah yeah yeah, I watched the movie first, sue me).

There were many “What the fuck?” moments, in a good sense of the phrase.

The pace in the book was a bit slow, but still psychologically very satisfying to read.

I don’t care if you disagree, but I felt the ending in the movie was actually more mysterious and sinister and just right than the book’s ending. But, no matter what, there’s no doubt that this was a great horror novel.

5 stars.
