Publisher's Summary

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.

©1967 Ira Levin; (P)2005 HarperCollinsPublishers, Inc.

    "A Must Read for Feminists and Psychodrama Fans"
    If you could sum up Rosemary's Baby in three words, what would they be?

    Original Demon Baby.


    Which character – as performed by Mia Farrow – was your favorite?

    Rosemary is easily my favorite character. She's written as such an interesting and normal woman, she's easily empathized with and, as a result, is a well-written baseline for the story. Mia Farrow breathes the same life into Rosemary as she did in the films, and it was quite wonderful to have her as the narrator.

    "Amazing"

    The movie was almost exactly like the book. Mia Farrow did an amazing job narrating and bring life to each character. I expected as much seeing as she was Rosemary in the film. There's nothing I can say about the book other than is was a great read. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

    "Great story, really creepy, great for Halloween"

    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.

    Enjoy!

    "Truely excellent!"

    Rosemary's Baby was already an excellent book but there is something about Mia Farrow reprising her role as Rosemary that really brought it to life. I 100% recommend.

    "Heavy!"

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook just HAD to be narrated by Mia Farrow. Ira Levin's story plot is so well developed and the characters are remarkable.

    "Good Listen!!!"

    It was similar to the movie and having Mia Farrow narrate was naturally the right choice as she's the original Rosemary. :-)

    "Falling in love all over again"
    Any additional comments?

    Having practically memorized the film from so many viewings, and finally reading the physical novel last Halloween, it did admittedly strike me as mildly redundant to re-re-revisit Rosemary's Baby in the audio form. But with the promise of Mia Farrow--Rosemary herself!--narrating, the woman whose lovely vulnerability made me fall in love with the film in the first place, I couldn't pass it up! And I was not disappointed.

    Levin's book is truly gorgeous in its simple, precise writing filled with small pockets of darkness and peculiar shadows on the wall--he leaves clues scattered all over the book, and even though I've watched/read this story countless times, it is marvelous to revisit a master of suspense and slowly discover all the ways he's tipping us off from the beginning.

    I adore Mia Farrow's narration. Her voice is naturally soothing and lovely, and she's a natural with creating characters. Rosemary's words replicate the sweet, slightly squeaky timbre heard in the film; meanwhile Minnie Castavet speaks in a raspy, amusingly accented whine without copying Ruth Gordon's performance (with a few exceptions---my personal favorite is her pronunciation of "preg-a-nent"). In this narration, Mia gets to really encompass Rosemary's entire little life, inside her head and out of it--her dreamy excitement for the baby, her insecurity with her wifely duties, her nostalgia for religion, and at some points, contempt for her husband. Levin's writing is just so damn good (and the film so damn close) that while I listen I feel like I'm watching a new, more in-depth version of the film I know and love.

    I'm so thrilled to have this in my library, and I'll probably be listening to it over and over again.
