I LOVED Rosemary's baby, Book & even the movie. I was so excited when I saw the sequel coming to audible. I had just finished Dr. Sleep (king) and I guess I was hoping this sequel would be just as good..............uh NO. I can't really tell you why it was so bad without giving away the ending & pretty much the entire premise of BOTH books. Lets just say the author turns the entire book Rosemary's Baby & Son of Rosemary into the biggest, annoying "no no" that any author can do. Lazy. Not only did he ruin Son of Rosemary but the first book as well Good Grief. Great writing but horrible horrible ending that ruined both books. Levin could have gone in so many other directions. The narration was wonderful, the book fast paced & as always he did a great job with the characters. Just lost his imagination in the end.................I think I'd rather watch an episode of "Dallas" lol.
There are barely words to describe how horrible this book it. It doesn't feel like the same author nor does it feel like the same characters. I am shocked that this would even be published. It feels like fanfiction. Steer clear of this book.
This was a decent sequel right up until the ending. It seems the author really copped out in the end. However this is still a must read for fans of the series.
Nicole Poole elevates narration to an art form, which this fine novel certainly is worthy of. I am particularly in awe of her ability to embody multiple characters with many genders, races, and aspects with such ease.
