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 Service Book of the
