“One of the most sophisticated and stimulating books in the genre. The most important horror novel of the 1960s and the book that launched the ‘horror boom’ of the 1960s and 1970s” (Barron, Horror Literature). “The book has gained resonance over the decades as a feminist parable of the powerlessness of women trapped in a paternalistic society. Roman Polanski’s 1968 film adaptation is both suspenseful and faithful to the plot of the story” (Barron, Fantasy and Horror).
