    "Here Be Witches"

    Mia Farrow does a fine job of narrating this novel, as well as putting her own spin on the various characters' voices. Her performance of Minnie Castevet is a highlight--she manages to make her sound simultaneously comical and frightening. Despite having seen the film many times, it was great fun to listen to this audiobook and to picture oneself in poor Rosemary's shoes: Is she suffering from a pregnancy-induced paranoia, or are these neighbors of hers part of a witch's coven?

    "Well Written, Great Fun"

    I liked this audio book. The narrator, who also starred in the movie, does a great job. The story is 70's horror fun. Well written. Story about a witches coven living in an apartment building and they want Rosemary's baby. You've probably seen the old movie but the book is much better. Spooky and a little weird and good listen!!!!!!

    "Excellent reading of a classic"

    This audiobook is even better than the movie and even more enjoyable for being read by Mia Farrow.

    "Mia Farrow Breathes New Life Into Levin's Baby"

    I used to give full credit for the wonder of the film version of Ira Levin's, "Rosemary's Baby," to Roman Polanski alone. Now having heard Mia Farrow's narration, I am , for the first time, able to really enjoy the book. Levin's book always seemed to me to be the barest of bones, and left me, like so many horror novels, feeling dissatisfied in the extreme.

    Well, my hat is off to Mia Farrow, who manages to bring enough of her Rosemary Woodhouse magic to give this thin volume much more excitement than I ever thought it could have. To me, it is like a different book; a book I now look forward to listening to again. I now actually feel quite enthusiastic about it. If you are considering downloading this, please do...don't bother with the print edition. Let Mia Farrow charm you and run away with your imagination. In my humble opinion, she elevates this to the highest level it will ever reach, off the screen. What a delight!

    "Man, Poor Rosemary..."

    What a really sucky thing to happen to a nice girl :) I haven't seen this movie so the story was a surprise for me, and although there are a lot of clues as to what's going to happen, the ending was kind of insane- baffling really! Fun listen- I didn't find it scary, but tense sometimes and Mia Farrow was great reading it.

    "Rosemary's Baby narrated by the woman herself :)"
    What made the experience of listening to Rosemary's Baby the most enjoyable?

    It was Mia Farrow. I enjoyed the movie a lot, having seen that first. But there were things that weren't touched in the movie that were revealed in the book


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked everything. Maybe except the party scene, but everything else was enjoyable :)


    What about Mia Farrow’s performance did you like?

    I liked how she read Minnie. It's funny that she also corrects herself in the way she said "basil" XD

    "a very enjoyable story!"
    Where does Rosemary's Baby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    among the top twenty (i have about 85 books.)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rosemary's Baby?

    the moments when rosemary made her "discoveries". the writer did a good job of making them suspensful.


    What about Mia Farrow’s performance did you like?

    oh she was great!! she brought the book alive.


    Any additional comments?

    i read the book years ago and i have seen the movie. the audiobook beats them both.

    "Ugh."
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Excellent!!!"

    I loved watching the movie, "Rosemary's Baby," with Mia Farrow, but it was an extra added treat to have Mia narrate the story. I LOVED Mia's performance, just as I enjoyed her in the movie.

    This is definitely worth adding to the library.
