Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby (Rosemary’s Baby #1) by Ira Levin

So I have seen this film and loved it. When the book was donated to the library and added to the collection-I couldn’t help it. I needed to read it. I had to see if it was as good.

It blew me away! The movie was great-but Ira Levin is on par with Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-no matter how many times have seen the film or read the book every time feels like the first time.

This book was AMAZING. I mean the film really was fantastic in staying close to the book but the writings was so amazing.

I mean-read it. I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. The emotion-Rosemary is so sweet and young and caring. She loves Guy even though he is a narcissistic prig.  All she wants is a nice home with her handsome husband and to have a baby.

You feel for her as she works on her home-her hopes and dreams and they are all dashed because of her horrible husband who trades his wife’s love to get a better career.

I can’t do this book justice. It was so good. Read it is all I can say. You will love it. You will love it so much you won’t be able to stop. Trust me. If you like any mystery, horror, thrills, suspense, etc-you will LOVE this as much as me.

And just in time for Halloween, Ihope you all have a happy-safe-holiday.
