Publisher's Summary

Orphaned twins Isabelle and Beatrice Thorn live a glamorous 1920s Hollywood life. They are the wards of Mr. Cecil, a mysterious and influential director, who insists on controlling every aspect of their lives. He made beautiful Isabelle a star and is about to release a horror flick that will showcase her famous scream. Disfigured Beatrice has been commanded to spend her days hidden on the Cecil estate, away from prying eyes and photographers, scarves covering her birthmarks and baldness.
But clever Beatrice's curiosity about the death of her parents, the appearance of scorpion hornets and the unsettling fate of a newspaper man is getting the better of her. She's starting to realize the director has truly dark designs.
Flickers is horror at its finest. A mixture of suspense, heartwarming love and gut-churning fear.

A strange but fascinating listen

This book was a strange but fascinating listen. I found the narrator a little off-putting, especially at first, but otherwise it was well-written with interesting characters (including the great Beatrice, who I totally related to). I definitely recommend this book to people who like their horror not too scary but a little unusual, or for people who're just looking for something a little different. I'll definitely be listening to/reading more books by this author in future.
