This book had been on my list for a long time but I had never dared to read it. It’s not that I was scared, nothing is further from the truth, but that “pregnant woman and blablabla” is simply NOT for me.
Jon bought me this edition at the Christmas book fair and I finally jumped at it. Surprise, surprise, I liked it so much that I read it in 3 days !!!
Rosemary and her partner, Guy, who manage to rent a flat in a famous Victorian building in New York. There they make friends with the elderly couple who live next to her, who also go out of their way for her when they find out that she is pregnant.
At first everything seems perfect: she lives in the building of her dream, Guy’s acting career begins to take off and she, to top it all, she becomes pregnant. But she will soon begin to realize that not everything is as it seems, that she is not having a normal pregnancy and that she does not know who she can trust.
Rosemary will have to fight for the safety of her baby without knowing if she is really threatened by some danger or if only with dreams and superstitions of a pregnant woman.
As I told you at the beginning, this was a story that I had been avoiding for years and, thanks to Jon, I finally read it. And I say thank you because I loved him.
The plot of the story may seem like forever, but it is very well conducted and does not become heavy or predictable at any point. It is also written in such a way that it is very easy to put yourself in poor Rosemary’s place to feel the uneasiness that invades her.
It is true that there is no impressive plot twist nor does it have an unpredictable ending, at the end of the day, we know at all times what is really past and our protagonist does not and, over there, it does seem to me that history loses u little magician.
On the other hand there is the character of Guy, who I HATE with all my might. But I can’t tell you why, since it would be making spoilers.
To sum up, if you have not done it yet, I recommend you to read it!
Here is the video review of the novel. As always, here I speak more extensively and in depth about the characters and the plot, but it’s only in Spanish.
