Review: Son of Rosemary


Son of Rosemary
Son of Rosemary by Ira Levin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Rosemary's Baby 33 years on. Look elsewhere for a plot summary. There is one key thing I'd like to say: the book isn't as bad as many reviews would lead you to believe.

Still, there are problems, and I think their number is five. Five. Five:

1> Going into it expecting horror, then discovering that 99% of the book has no horror element. Adjust your expectations. There is more shopping, hairdressing and neck kissing than horror; the novel is darkly comic in tone. Not bad, but disappointing if it is not what you expect.

Lots Of Hits

I was just looking at an old blog post, Creeping Jesus Multimediafied, and noticed that in the screenshot the video had 38,000 views and 814 likes. When I visited the video today it had nearly 100,000 views and over 1,600 likes. Wow. Although I wrote the story the credit goes to Creeps McPasta for doing the hard work of arranging to have it narrated. Still, it's nice to see it getting out there!

(Another horror story of mine got the multimedia treatment here.)
