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 insistent that she remains in the house As horrifying as that prospect might be Noemi is also intrigued by the legends Virgil and with the youngest member of the family Francis the only friendly face on the entire estate With Francis reluctant help Noemi is determined to learn the history of the region and to free her cousin from the grasp of her oddly mesmerizing husband and the curse of High 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 Dressed in Dreams

READ Mexican Gothic 107 The region Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer She’s a glamorous debutante and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing But she’s also tough and smart with an indomitable will and she is not afraid not of her cousin’s new husband who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí; and not even of the house itself which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom Her only ally in. Hmm How best to describe Mexican Gothic I guess I would say it s A little bit H P LovecraftA little bit Alfred HitchcockA lotta bit creepy old houseYes Mexican Gothic is part mystery It s part Gothic suspense It s part horror Maybe even part New Weird Maybe And all its various parts are expertly and seamlessly blended by the skillful words of Silvia Moreno GarciaSet in 1950s Mexico the novel follows the young socialite Noemi Taboada as she travels to High Place an old mansion in the countryside to visit her newly married cousin Catalina Concerned for her cousin s welfare after receiving a disturbingly odd letter from Catalina Noemi is uncertain as to what she will find at the house upon her arrival Noemi uickly learns that not only is High Place dreary and decrepit but it is inhabited by the highly peculiar and unusual Doyle family Determined to help her cousin Noemi refuses to be intimidated by the members of Catalina s married into family namely the enigmatic Virgil her cousin s husband and Howard the elderly Doyle patriarch who develops a weird obsession with Noemi herself And she also fails to be frightened by High Place even as the house begins to occupy and fill her dreams with disturbing unimaginable scenes of horrifying violenceBefore long Noemi discovers that many dark and shocking secrets hide among the Doyles and the confines of High Place She can only hope that it s not too late to save Catalina and herself from the clutches of the family and the houseI think Moreno Garcia took a bit of a risk with Mexican Gothic Many genres are crossed and bent in order for her to successfully and innovatively twist the classic Gothic haunted house story In the hands of a lesser writer I believe the novel would ve likely fallen flat on its face But Moreno Garcia is certainly not a lesser writer And her gamble pays off handsomelyThe novel is incredibly atmospheric and eerie Moreno Garcia s writing is so vividly descriptive and she creates an environment on the page that is almost claustrophobic to read High Place comes to life I could visualize the colors and the tapestries smell the decay feel the dampness of the hallways I felt as if I was within the walls of the old mansion right alongside Noemi Moreno Garcia also employs of a classic style of writing that to me is very reminiscent of the 1950s and serves to further set the scene creating a feeling of being swept back in time to a different eraMoreover Moreno Garcia takes her time developing the story and refuses to rush the narrative The pace admittedly is slightly sluggish in the beginning of the novel but not ever was I bored I found the slow build of the creep factor the gradually escalating strangeness of High Place to be uite effectiveBut in terms of horror Mexican Gothic is not what I would consider to be truly frightening It stimulates a different kind of terror in the reader It s of a chilling grotesue sickening shudder inducing Lovecraft and New Weird type of horror rather than an I need to leave all the lights on to go to sleep because I m so scared type of horror And Noemi I enjoyed her immensely She s smart She s brave She s witty She s also extremely self absorbed and superficial but she shows true concern for Catalina and genuinely desires to help her She has a strong heart Moreno Garcia puts forth great effort to develop Noemi fully resulting in a very well rounded characterBut the Doyle family well rounded they are not All we truly know about Virgil Howard and the cousins Florence and Francis is that they are certifiably creepy and highly odd Occasionally we are given details about their past histories to fill in the gaps For the most part however they come across as extremely flat one dimensional individualsYou know what though The flat characterization still works for some reason I believe it has something to do with the overall classic horror film feel of Mexican Gothic and all the Alfred Hitchcock vibes the story radiates In my mind while reading I repeatedly envisioned Hitchcock turning the narrative into a movie And the flat almost distant characterization of the Doyle family seems to fit the novel if viewing it from the standpoint of an old school scary movie Make sense Hope soNow for my one complaint the mystery regarding the origin of the supernatural phenomena and illness at High Place is just too simple for the reader to solve It is glaringly obvious if close attention is paid Moreno Garcia neither hides her hand well nor bluffs the reader By the time I was a uarter of the way through the book I knew the how and why of all the madness and I was mildly disappointed that the secret of the source was not heavily veiledSigh Perfection is difficult to come by isn t itAs imperfect as it may be Mexican Gothic is nonetheless a terrific read I loved it And I highly recommend it
