It has been a little while since I’ve read a book that really gives me the heebeejeebees, but Ira Levin sure sent shivers down my spine with Rosemary’s Baby.
I knew this was going to be a creepy one, just based on the movie clips I’ve seen, but holy damn the suspense in this book is so well written. I was a little skeptical about it at first, just because I don’t generally like books written in this time period, but I think that added to the uneasiness I felt while reading.
From the very beginning of the story, you know that something is very very wrong. Even though the couple is moving to what should be a much nicer apartment, you can’t help but screaming noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
I think we read too many books, guys. What do you think?
Rosemary’s Baby is a classic horror story that is often referenced in pop culture, so I’m glad I’ll finally understand the references. I can see where a lot of modern thriller writers have pulled inspiration from. I probably won’t read the second book, though. I think it needs to end here.
