Waterstones Says

The spine-chilling novel behind Polanski’s eponymous 1968 film, Rosemary’s Baby plunges the reader into a world of terrifying dreams, paranoia and devilry in an old New York City apartment building.

Rosemary Woodhouse and her struggling actor-husband, Guy, move into the Bramford, an old New York City apartment building with an ominous reputation and only elderly residents.

Neighbours Roman and Minnie Castavet soon come nosing around to welcome them; despite Rosemary's reservations about their eccentricity and the weird noises that she keeps hearing, her husband starts spending time with them. Shortly after Guy lands a plum Broadway role, Rosemary becomes pregnant, and the Castavets start taking a special interest in her welfare.

As the sickened Rosemary becomes increasingly isolated, she begins to suspect that the Castavets' circle is not what it seems.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Suspense is beautifully intertwined with everyday incidents; the delicate line between belief and disbelief is faultlessly drawn.' - The New York Times 

'A darkly brilliant tale of modern devilry that induces the reader to believe the unbelievable. I believed it and was altogether enthralled.' - Truman Capote

'Levin is the Swiss watchmaker of the suspense novel.' - Stephen King

A creepy and intense story. It creates an incredibly intense feeling of isolation, claustrophobia and impending doom. The writing style is incredibly easy to read and sweeps you along quickly. While not the scariest... More

“Creepy but essential reading!”

I read this book within a day, shortly after reading The Stepford Wives. I can't decide which was most frightening - each is extremely scary in its own way. I have not seen the film - but do intend to watch it to... More
