    She opened her eyes and looked into yellow furnace eyes, smelled sulphur and tannis root, felt wet breath on her mouth, heard lust grunts and the breathing of onlookers Nightmare Passionate dream Real How could it be real It can t possibly be real Rosemary Woodhouse wants a baby She is married to an actor named Guy They have recently broken another lease to take an apartment in the exclusive Bramford Building Guy, who glibly uses his acting skills to spin stories, has no difficulty extracting them from the first lease to take the open apartment in the Bramford After all, that is what Rosemary wants Whenever any of us look back on our lives, we can usually point to a specific moment in time when we made one decision that sent us down a pathway that led us, hopefully, only briefly, astray from the pursuit of happiness None of us, or maybe I should say few of us, can see the future We have to make our best guess, hopefully based on logic than a hope of luck The apartment at the Bramford had Gothic overtones, detailed woodwork, and certainly a interesting location than the other apartments the Woodhouses had looked at Although smaller than some of the other places, having a hip apartment, especially to young ps...

    I knew from a young age that I probably didn t have the maternal instinct that is necessary to raise a child I hated dolls they creeped me out, and instead of dressing up the ones I was given as gifts the dolls sat in the corner in various stages of undress while I wheeled my cat whiskers around in a baby carriage showing off his cute bonnets and frilly dresses He was the best dressed kitty in the neighborhood And if my parents were not convinced then, that I would never give them grandchildren they knew later on when in grade 7 the great baby egg school assignment was given I killed 5 egg babies in a week by accident of course , and ate the last one for breakfast when the experiment was over If I had read ROSEMARY S BABY when it first came out it definitely would have convinced me even further that making babies wasn t for meWhen a four bedroom apartment finally comes available in The Bramford building newlyweds Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse ignore the warnings from their friend Hutch that the building is cursed and excitedly sign a lease.Rosemary thinks The Bramford will be the perfect place to raise a child, and is hoping after they settle in Guy an aspiring actor, will warm to the idea of having a baby.Shortly after the couple move in Rosemary meets her first neighbor in the laundry room Terry a young woman, down on her luck, who has been welcomed in by the elderly couple next door The two new friends make a pact to do their laundry to...

    Disclaimer I am not marking this review as containing spoilers, because honestly, it s the 21st century and if you know nothing about the book or the movie, then that s just sad and shame on you unless you don t like scary things, in which case you shouldn t even be on this page If you don t want to know anything about the story, then please stop reading here.Disclaimer 2 This is probably going to be a long review because I have a lot of thoughts If you don t want to read a long review, then please stop reading here.I read this in honor of my friend who is pregnant and will be giving birth in approximately 26 dayds I want to make a lot of references to Rosemary s Baby to her every single day but that would be cruel because she also hates scary books movies So that s a bummer But this goes out to her I m a true friend.This is the story of Rosemary Woodhouse, a young woman married to a struggling actor named Guy whose real name, I am sorry to say, is Sherman a detail that doesn t come up in the movie, but I thou...

    She didn t know if she was going mad or going sane Well, this classic horror novel certainly hit the spot this month You simply can t go wrong with pure and simple, subtle fright for some pre Halloween entertainment This is a book very firmly set in the period of 1966 New York City, yet it never feels outdated on the creepiness scale It has such a nightmarish quality that seeps into your psyche and makes you wonder on whom you can truly rely Are people something other than what they appear to be on the surface Even those we most depend on can they betray our trust in them I absolutely loved the setting for this one Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are newly married, Guy is trying to establish his acting career, and the couple tosses around the idea of having their first baby But first Guy wants to settle into a new home and make a name for himself He is ambitious, and sweet Rosemary is supportive When the opportunity arises to secure an apartment at the highly sought after Bramford, the Woodhouses jump at the chance The Bramford, old, black, and elephantine, is a warren of high ceilinged apartments prized for their fireplaces and Victorian detail The perfect backdrop for what is to follow For, the Bramford, despite its illustrious address, has a lurid history And we all know that history has a way...

    What shocks me most about reading Rosemary s Baby is what fantastic fiction it is Published in 1967, this thriller by Ira Levin flew off shelves and was adapted to film in 1968 by Roman Polanski into not only a prestigious studio picture but one that stands the test of time as one of the best horror films ever produced In an afterword penned in 2003 and included in this edition, Levin expresses surprise by how faithful the hit film was to his book preserving virtually all of the characters and scenes and even much of the author s dialogue perhaps because no one told Polanski, making his first American film, that he was allowed to make changes.Opening with the pop and the sizzle of a tabloid photo, the novel centers on Rosemary Woodhouse, a Manhattan wife in her early twenties who with her husband Guy, a striving actor, are notified that a four room apartment has opened up in the Bramford, a 19th century building the couple has been wait listed for since their wedding The available 7th floor apartment was once the back of a luxurious ten room apartment, but even after being split, retains a large kitchen and bath, as well as five closets, one of which has been barricaded by a dresser it takes both Guy and the leasing agent to budge Inside the closet they find nothing but a vacuum cleaner and linen.Rosemary falls in love with 7E and is already planning to change the wallpaper as she urges Guy to get them out of a lease th...

    ROSEMARY S BABY is creepy as HELL

    I truly had no intention of reading this novel until I realized Ira Levin was the author He sure could write creepy scary too, and as with his other novels, he moves right along in the telling describing a 1966 New York City setting, young newlyweds Rosemary and Guy, and their new place of residence in the old Bramford apartment building with a very dark history.

    If you ve only seen the scary as HELL movie, you ll find the book very similar, if not exactly the same, complete with weird old nosy neigh...

    You can find this review and at Novel Notions Thanks, Mr Levin I hate it.I had so many problems with this book Because I feel the need to vent about said problems, there will be an abundance of spoilers in the review below I ll try to keep things as vague as possible, but yeah Spoilers If you re unfamiliar with the story and have any desire to read it without prior knowledge, please skip reading this review.You have been warned I feel like one of the very few people in my part of the world who has never watched the movie Rosemary s Baby, or at least been exposed to the story Because I have in recent years developed a love for the horror genre, I m trying to read some of the backlist of books that make up the genre s classics As this is a tiny little novel, barely outside of the novella length, I decided that it would be my next foray into said classics I m glad to be able to say that I ve read it, and that s about all the good I have to say about this book I read it That s it.Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are a recently married couple who find luck turning in their favor when an apartment becomes available at the prestigious Bramford has just become available The two move into their new home with glee and excitement, exulting in the building s quirks and motley assortment of tenants Two of these neighbors, Minnie and Roman Castevet, take the ...
