Gothic Readers Book Club

The Gothic Readers Book Club is a gathering of like-minded souls who read Gothic literature. Our goal is promote the best in modern and classic Gothic literature from around the globe.

Malfi's tale reflects the psychological horror of Gothic. It's not gore and violence. There's a powerful sense of unease throughout the story. There are things lurking in the shadows and around the corners. Things we cannot see, but we know are there. The suspense is intense and frightening and Malfi builds the tension well. Like the classic Gothic novels, we are never really sure about our protagonist. What's real and what's not here? Are the horrors and haunts real manifestations or imagined? Malfi challenges the fine line between insanity and supernatural here.
