Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno Garcia is a 2020 Del Rey publication An exciting new approach to Gothic Horror fiction I rarely ever comment on a book cover but this one is stunning It s an eye catcher for sure but you know what they say about judging a book by its cover So the uestion is Does the story measure up to that magnificent cover Mexico City 1950s Noem Taboada a young socialite who wishes to achieve in her life than marrying a man her father approves of is given the chance to secure her dreams of attending university if she will travel to High Place to check on her cousin Catalina who has been writing strange alarming letters suggesting she is either uite ill or in grave danger Upon her arrival to the crumbling mansion Noemi receives a very frosty greeting from Catalina s husband Virgil and the limited staff Even disconcerting to Noemi is her cousin s fragility and the fierce opposition others have to Noemi s spending time alone with Catalina Capping things off is the house itself which offers no modern accommodations not even common basics and appears to be rotting at the seams If that isn t unsettling enough for you wait until you get a load of Virgil s ancient Uncle Howard Almost immediately Noemi begins having extremely vivid highly sexual and lurid dreams or hallucinations Virgil shrugs this off as sleepwalking episodes However as time passes the atmosphere in the house becomes even claustrophobic and the staff s demeanor never thaws toward Noemi One would think they were trying to scare Noemi away but instead they are becoming and

Place This is one super creepy novel The atmosphere is off the charts spooky and the imagery is incredibly vivid The blurb calls this a re imagining of the classic Gothic suspense novel Go with that description and think about what that word re imagining might mean This book has been compared to Rebecca by publicists promoters and editorial or professional reviewers Naturally I m going to have to agree to disagree about that comparison Why Both novels are without a doubt Gothic literature But I never viewed Rebecca as a horror novel The supernatural tones one senses in that novel is not at all like what one will experience when reading this novel If I could rewrite the blurb I would substitute the word Suspense with the word Horror The book is very suspenseful but you are getting a true horror novel experience here and not one that is merely implied While re imagining is a great way to describe this modern spin on the classic genre in ways than one it is pure traditional Gothic Horror The author did a fabulous job marrying Gothic and Horror creating a complex and hypnotizing tone keeping me glued to the pages especially during the last uarter of the book That said keep in mind that Gothic fiction is not known for its blistering pace However I felt like this one moved along at a nice clip despite a lag here and there It s dark and ghastly replete with classic Gothic Grotesuerie and lots of mind tripping chills and thrills plus a little bit of romance for balance and lightness Overall this is the best Gothic horror novel I ve read in ages Murderers Scoundrels and

Mexican Gothic review Æ eBook or Kindle ePUB Silvia Moreno-Garcia ✓ 3 summary summary Mexican Gothic An isolated mansion A chillingly charismatic aristocrat And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes a novel set in glamorous 1950s Mexico After receiving a frantic letter from her newlywed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom Noemí Taboada heads to High Place a distant house in the Mexican countryside She’s not sure what she will find her cousin’s husband a handsome Englishman is a stranger and Noemí knows little about. I pray I ll see you again You must come for me Noem You have to save meWHEW You think you know where this book is going and then it goes there Mexican Gothic begins in such an unassuming way where you think you re walking into a traditional haunted house story and then everything shifts to pull you under like a riptide that doesn t loosen until you turn the final page Before I dive into my review I think it s fair to note that the majority of this book is atmospheric character driven and the slowest burn imaginable for me this worked spectacularly well as I love to feel completely absorbed into the narrative in horror novels And yes friends this is most definitely a horror novel I ll include content warnings in a spoiler tag below for those who are interested Noem s father said she cared too much about her looks and parties to take school seriously as if a woman could not do two things at onceMaybe the reason why this slow burn worked so well for me is because I instantly connected with Noem she is confident intelligent and the life of the party When her father receives a suspicious letter from Noem s cousin Catalina he sends Noem to investigate and report back As expected everyone involved gets than they bargained for and what begins as a handful of unusual occurrences slowly morphs into a whirlwind of horrifying circumstances This house she was sure was haunted She wasn t one for believing in things that go bump in the night either but right that second she firmly felt every spook and demon and evil thing might be crawling about the earth like in Catalina s storiesOne of the things I loved the most about this story is how vastly different the haunted house felt The author has successfully blended the traditional aspects of the old decrepit ghost filled residence and a new modern aspect one I won t go into detail of for fear of spoiling the big twist I think she nailed it on the head when she stated in her Goodreads interview that this book is for the reader who is both classy and trashy because it has the high entertainment value that fast fiction lovers rejoice in but it is also filled with beautifully devastating prose If you too have a love affair with all things that go bump in the night Mexican Gothic should be your top priority this summer I cannot recommend this book highly enough to those who have a desire to spend long hours in a derelict house and an iron stomach The truth was she was afraid of going to bed of what nightmares might uncoil in the dark What did people do after witnessing the horrors they had seen Was it possible to slip back into normality to play pretend and go on She wanted to think this was exactly the case but she was afraid sleep would prove her wrongContent Warning view spoilerSexual assault incest murder and gore cannibalism themes challenging white supremacy and eugenics discussions surrounding the death of a parent and other family members miscarriages and stillbirths discussions surrounding suicide and the consumption of alcohol and smoking hide spoiler
