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 classic of horror

Would you listen to Rosemary's Baby again? Why?

I know I will, just hear Mia Farrow's dedication to the character she originated in the classic film.

What about Mia Farrow’s performance did you like?

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.

If you could take any character from Rosemary's Baby out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I think it would have to be Roman, just to hear what his real life's story would be.

loved it

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.

the best performance

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.

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.
