    " My personal favorite in classic horror. I have read it twice. Love the darkness. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what the apartment people were going to do to poor Rosemary next.. Great for a rainy day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sofia | 2/17/2014

    " I remember seeing the film several times when I was growing up. I decided to read the book and enjoyed it as I did watching it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katsumi | 2/9/2014

    " The book is suspenseful and good at points, but some of Rosemary's decisions are naive and not very believable especially as they occur in the dog eat dog world of new york city, which mars the overall force of the book. As if someone is going to wear a horrible smelling 'lucky charm' as a necklace, and drink some mystery herbal shake for months from some odd neighbors that live up stairs. Stuff like that. Actually the baby is more believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 1/30/2014

    " Pretty fun and quick to read. This is probably not true if you're pregnant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anushka | 1/24/2014

    " Just finished Rosemary's Baby. the book just gives me the chills...the struggle between a mothers instinctive love for their baby...and knowing that that baby is Satan's son. It really scares me that I fell asleep on the book yesterday morning. :/ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 1/18/2014

    " Wow. A whole lot of development for not a lot of horror. The lights do not need to be left on. It will be fine. There is no actual hero/heroine, so maybe that's the horror of it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niki Campbell Seidel | 1/18/2014

    " woooah! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margo | 1/13/2014

    " Hyped up beyond reason, this book fulfilled all my expectations. Furthermore, it ended much better and acceptably than I expected it to. Instead of leaving with a bad taste in my mouth, like I expected, I felt good about my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 12/24/2013

    " read many years ago but could not put it down. one of the few books I read in a day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Grayson | 12/24/2013

    " this is a fabulous book. no a scary as most might think. a must read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sojyung | 12/22/2013

    " I liked the movie better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 11/1/2013

    " An inspiration to decades of religious horror tales to come. Not his best work, but one of my favorites as it was the first of Levin's novels I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Gamer | 9/27/2013

    " worth reading . it was better than the movie though it worth seeing also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Brady | 8/14/2013

    " Very slow but well written. The ending was trash. My 11 year old son could have conceived a better ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandi | 4/17/2013

    " The author was not an amazing writer, but it's passable enough to keep you turning the pages. It's not just a horror story about a woman carrying Satan's son but a look at a unique period in time when this was a real fear among people. I also loved the snapshot of life in New York in the 60s. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Marshall | 3/31/2013

    " I was very confused by the ending of Rosemary's Baby. In fact, it almost seemed anti-climatic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ming Siu | 12/17/2012

    " Lots of creepy fun. And you can't say that Ira Levin doesn't give you any clues. For those who've seen the movie or know the plot, they are staring you in the face. But it's great for the rare unknowing reader who stumbles upon the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alwa | 9/29/2012

    " Even better--certainly funnier--than The Stepford Wives. And, similarly, even though I've already seen the movie (and who doesn't know what's really wrong with Rosemary's little Andrew-or-Susan?), the suspense was there. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Corey | 4/12/2012

    " Maybe not the worst book I've read, but close. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 12/5/2011

    " it wasn't as scary as I'd thought it would be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 10/3/2011

    " This book is a page-turner. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 8/3/2011

    " kind of brilliant. creepy, subtly funny...ending left me pondering for a while "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Goele Lousbergh | 5/19/2011

    " Made me act coolly to my new,wonderful, horse loving neighbours. Now, that's a feat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie Carruth | 5/12/2011

    " I always wish that in the end the mother had taken the baby into a church and baptized him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anya | 5/2/2011

    " What a weird book. Now I want to see the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosalía | 4/19/2011

    " At the time of reading this book, I was eighteen and freaked out by cults/secret societies and being controlled by them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 4/11/2011

    " The ending was sort of a letdown, but everything leading up to it was scary.
    I was thinking she'd throw the baby out the window and jump after him. I don't really understand her sudden change of mind, from killing him and herself to becoming a mother to him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walter | 3/23/2011

    " If you like horror, this and The Exorcist are the best I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy T | 3/20/2011

    " This was a spooky book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 3/17/2011

    " A real creepy book and of course it was better than the movie. I'll have to read the sequel sometime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Einnar | 3/13/2011

    " El primer libro que leí. :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 3/11/2011

    " i saw the movie before i read the book...the movie was done to the "T" of the book...probably the only book that was made into a movie I've seen that was exact page for page...of course I will take that sweet apartment in the Dakota/The Bramford any day!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/7/2011

    " I lovedlovedloved it and will definitely re-read it AND watch the DVD again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 3/4/2011

    " Love the book, love the movie, love love love. Don't usually go for horror books, but this is extremely well written and terrifying. Read it in french, would like to read it in english as well. "
