Rosemary’s Baby

Listen to a sample

What to expect

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.

Critics Review

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

    Truman Capote
  • A terrifying book: I can think of no other in which fear of an evil strikes with greater chill

    Daily Telegraph
  • Suspense is beautifully intertwined with everyday incidents; the delicate line between belief and disbelief is faultlessly drawn

    New York Times
