After an hour or so of listening, I couldn't take it anymore. Her voice made me want to dig my eardrums out with a rusty nail, stomp on them in high heels, light them on fire, then feed them to a feral cat.Someday I may try and read the book...but only when Mia Farrow's voice is forever gone from my memory.
Had seen the movie before hearing the audio book. if you enjoy the film you'll love this, and if you haven't, this is a well written and truly unsettling story. I feel like some might think it starts a little slow, but none of it is superfluous.
Mia Farrow reading this book is emotional and frightening. Very disturbing. A must read for horror and dark fiction fans, and of course, anyone who loves this story.
This audiobook just HAD to be narrated by Mia Farrow. Ira Levin's story plot is so well developed and the characters are remarkable.
this book is approximately six hours long. the first five hours are spent building suspense and characters. Rosemary is a passive dimbulb and every conversation she has is a reminder that everyone in this book is really uninteresting. Finally in the last hour the mystery and conspiracy begin to unwind in a thrilling drama but by that point you are rooting for the antichrist. like maybe instead of going on about wallpaper and laundry soap or whatever these people can open conversations with existential horror
I'm all about the drama in my reading!
It was similar to the movie and having Mia Farrow narrate was naturally the right choice as she's the original Rosemary. :-)
The last scene where Rosemary decides not to kill the baby. It was creepy and wonderfully written. You just want to scream at her and yet understand her thinking.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
I never read the print version
The book or the baby?
I enjoyed this book.The characters were believable and well written.I LIKED the 'bad
people' as much as I did the good people.I wasn't impressed with the husband,but maybe that was how women were treated in the 60's.
