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.

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.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
among the top twenty (i have about 85 books.)
the moments when rosemary made her "discoveries". the writer did a good job of making them suspensful.
oh she was great!! she brought the book alive.
i read the book years ago and i have seen the movie. the audiobook beats them both.
I know I will, just hear Mia Farrow's dedication to the character she originated in the classic film.
Seeing how Mia Farrow has evolved as a performer, hearing the difference in the line delivery made this something I know I would visit again.
I think it would have to be Roman, just to hear what his real life's story would be.
I love this story. I really liked Mia Farrow performance. I thought it was pretty cool they had her read the story. I seen the movie first then wanted to listen to the book. I enjoyed the small details the book offered.
Ok. So the story is super creepy and suspenseful and engaging... but Mia Farrow really puts the icing on the cake. Her performance is probably one of the best on Audible. Just like I have movies like American Psycho and Cabin in the Woods that are my go-to for Halloween entertainment, I can absolutely seeing myself making this a staple for Halloween listening. Excellent.
Say something about yourself!

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.
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.
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.
