Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I could read this book over and over again.

I was lucky enough one day to come across Rosemary Baby’s movie on the Internet and was totally a fan. I was ecstatic to find this was a book based movie. I have read the book a couple of times already.

Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into the elite ‘Bramford’, house to many famous people for past many decades with an air of notoriety to it. Guy is a struggling actor trying to make his mark in Hollywood, while Rosemary is the innocent girl next door who fell in love with him and married him, much to the dismay of her family. Guy is fully focused on his career while Rosemary is a homemaker at heart who wishes to have children and a sweet home of herself. Their sweet and quiet life starts getting uneasy when a nosy couple who lives next door starts getting friendly with them. Rosemary feels uneasy around them but Guy seems to have taken them as parent figures to him. Finally, the time comes when Guy says he is ready to have a baby. As luck would have it, Rosemary falls pregnant right away after a rather dreadful episode of one night. Rosemary is ecstatic on this jubilant news but her happiness is no longer perfect when, over the course of the next few months, she realizes her pregnancy is anything but normal.

I love this book for the sheer simplicity of it. There aren’t too many characters in the story nor too many plot twists. It is a sweet, relaxing read yet the book keeps you totally engrossed. The reader falls in love with Rosemary’s innocence and feels the horrid events that come her way as her pregnancy comes to term.

I will definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a relaxing book to read this winter. My rating: 5 stars.
