Mexican Gothic has been everywhere this year and as a long time fan of Silvia Moreno Garcia s work I ve loved seeing so many readers discover just how good she is Weirdly though it took me a while to get to this novel despite it being one of my most anticipated releases of the year because I saw so much hype for it that I worried I might hype it up too much in my headI needn t have worried One of the things I love about Moreno Garcia s work is that I m never entirely sure where it s going and that s definitely true of this Gothic horror novelIt s Mexico in 1950 and socialite Noem Taboada is asked to visit High Place an old manor in the Mexican countryside after her father receives a worrying letter from Noem s recently married cousin Catalina It sounds as though Catalina is unwell perhaps she reuires treatment for her mental health and Noem s family want not only to make sure Catalina is safe and well but also to make sure there s no scandal for their familyWhen Noem arrives at High Place however it s clear that something isn t uite right The English family who live there once the proud owners of a wealthy mining empire are peculiar and secretive the townspeople claim the family are cursed and Noem often feels like something in the very walls is watching herAs always I fell in love with Moreno Garcia s heroine Each of her novels has had a very different woman at its centre and I ve loved all of them and Noem is no different She loves parties and boys and drinking and smoking but she also wants to attend university and she s not someone who can be easily pushed around If this were a Gothic novel written back in the 18th or 19th centuries Catalina would probably be our innocent heroine and I was very fond of Catalina too but I loved how Moreno Garcia gave us a Gothic heroine of a different kindIn this way Mexican Gothic is Northanger Abbey than The Mysteries of Udolpho Just as Northanger Abbey s Catherine views her world through a Gothic lens and therefore gets to the heart of the villain s true nature Noem also feels like the heroine of a Gothic tale that has already been told She s both in a Gothic story and yet also in a Gothic aftermath story Much of the terrible things that have happened to women throughout the history of the Gothic genre have already happened by the time Noem arrives at High Place and instead we re seeing the Gothic novel from the perspective of the rescuer rather than the innocent vulnerable girl If you re a fan of Angela Carter s fairy tales this is a novel for youThis is a Gothic novel in which women are allowed to be angry for all the crap they ve been put through throughout the history of the horror genre without ever pointing a finger at the horror genre as being the problem Women have been writing horror for as long as the genre has been around with Mary Shelley and Ann Radcliffe being some of the better known early examples and this novel doesn t criticise the genre itself but instead really focuses our attention on the kinds of violence women are subjected to within the genre which played out beautifully against the backdrop of Mexico in 1950 when women didn t yet have the voteMexican Gothic is so easy to read and genuinely uite creepy at times there were a couple of moments when I knew that had this story been a film I d ve jumped out my skin and if you re a fan of Gothic tales with creepy houses like Rebecca this is one novel you need to try I didn t know I needed a Gothic novel with a Mexican twist until I picked up this book and now I ll definitely be on the lookout for Mexican horror

I rarely read horror but I seem to be on a bit of a horror bender at the moment and picked this up to continue the ride My initial thoughts are that it s uite disturbing and I both love and am afraid of this bookSet in 1950 Noemi lives in Mexico City enjoying the parties games and the flirting with handsome heirs to vast companies When her cousin Catalina sends a telegram saying her new husband is trying to poison her Noemi sets off to investigate her cousin s strange claim Trekking across the Mexican countryside Noemi arrives at High Place a Victorian style manor house that lords over a small town once famed for its silver mine All that remains of the silver is Catalina s husband s family the Doyles and a few silver trinkets Unwelcomed by the Doyles Noemi finds her cousin has become a nervous wreck making claims the walls are talking to her and her husband Virgil is trying to poison her and vows to stay with her to keep her company But as Noemi investigates her cousins claims she unwittingly uncovers dark mysteries surrounding the Doyles and their silver mine The she scratches at the mysteries the deeper Noemi begins to fall into the same dark trap as CatalinaThis is NOT my usual read however I m lately taken by creepy housestowns with creepy histories and this definitely delivers It s a bit of a slow burn to begin with but it absolutely knocks it out of the creepy park about 34 of the way through and looking back it s not possible to do that without the slow setupWhat I loved most about this book was the time period and the setting The author describes everything so richly I had no trouble picturing it Noemi also has several disturbing dreams and they too were handled really well the creepiness of this book is delivered in the writing Everything is so easily pictured and I think that s why I both love and am afraid of this bookIt s honestly a gem and you should give it a go
