Rosemary Woodhouse and her struggling actor husband Guy move into the Bramford, an old New York City apartment building with an ominous reputation and mostly elderly residents. Neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet soon come nosing around to welcome the Woddhouse’s to the building, and despite Rosemary’s reservations about their eccentricity and the weird noises that she keeps, hearing, her husband takes a shine to them.
If you saw the movie Rosemary’s Baby then you know how the story goes and how it ends the book isn’t much different but you can feel the emotions and horror through the words in this book! This book had me hooked I really enjoyed reading it even though I have watched the movie a few times already! Rosemary and Guy move into the Bramford apartment, they soon become close to the Castavet’s their next door neighbors, Guy takes more of a liking then Rosemary’s she finds Minnie kind of noise. Soon Rosemary becomes pregnant and Minnie won’t leave her alone she recommends Rosemary to her own special doctor, making her special drinks and treats, and giving her a pendent to wear that has an awful smell. This pregnancy is very unusual she is losing weight and has an unbearable pain in her stomach that won’t go away everyone thinks it’s normal including the doctor and say’s it will pass “What are these people crazy” Rosemary’s friends thing! It’s like the baby is sucking the life out of her. Soon Rosemary starts to become suspicious of everyone around her the Castavet’s, her doctor and even Guy she begins not to trust! Could it be too late for Rosemary? I give this book a solid 4 stars!
