What a great way to relax during the holidays like reading a supernatural crime thriller by one of the greatest writers of modern horror. My goal is to read at least three book per month, and I subsequently came across The Outsider by Stephen King as a recommendation. The novel was adapted into a limited series in 2020 starring Ben Mendelsohn starring as the titular character Ralph Anderson. Many huge differences from the book, but nonetheless eerie in its own right.
Although Halloween is over, I was able to discover some new materials of gothic literature and horror-Nevertheless, I was determined to read Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Before Goodreads, I relied on Buzzfeed’s recommended reading list; I understand that some may argue it might not be the best source for curated literary collections, but I kept seeing this novel everywhere online. Moreno-Garcia’s novel actually debuted in October 2020, but I finally finished it, er, two weeks ago, and wow; A lot of symbolism, motifs, but I wanted to focus on one, so here we go.
