The young couple. The new neighbors. The suicide. The amulet. The doctor. The herbs. The anagram. The baby. Rosemary's Baby. In 1967, when Rosemary's Baby was first published, Ira Levin's masterpiece gave horror an innocent new face . And yes, the book is far scarier than the movie!

While this was a good book, I have to agree with an earlier reviewer who said that the movie is better than the book.

It just seems that more was needed to make this book really stellar.

Good read, dumb ending.

was ok for that time when books about witchcraft were not put into real detail as they are today. but a good book for reading on the train or subway.

Note to self: don't make any deals with the devil. Seriously though, this is a classic. One of those books that helped pave the way for this genre. I remember when I was young watching the movie and being disappointed that you didn't see more of the baby (guess I was some sort of warped, curious sort of child). The book definitely met all expectations!

The movie was better than the book. The book was way too short and the story line had a good working base, but ended up going all over the place. :( Read this last year.

This book is great and the movie is great also. It is most definitely part of my collection and is one of my favorites.
