's review

it was amazing

This is one of those few books where I find myself thinking, hey the movie wasn't half bad at all. In fact, it helped to picture Mia Farrow as Rosemary while I was reading the book (yeah yeah yeah, I watched the movie first, sue me).

There were many "What the fuck?" moments, in a good sense of the phrase.

The pace in the book was a bit slow, but still psychologically very satisfying to read.

I don't care if you disagree, but I felt the ending in the movie was actually more mysterious and sinister and just right than the book's ending. But, no matter what, there's no doubt that this was a great horror novel.

5 stars.
