Publisher's Summary

Excuse me if I'm feeling sentimental. I might die tonight. My name is Candy Tran. Before I was hunting down serial killers and feeding men to alligators, I was a normal, church-going, tax-paying citizen. Before all of this.

I've been given a chance to tell my story, so please, listen closely. This is going to take a while. 

Candy is a wild, humor-filled, neo-noir romp across america. For fans of Chuck Palahniuk and films like Seven Psychopaths and Pulp Fiction. From the author of The Variant and Tamer Animals.

Gifted Narrator!

"Candy" is a captivating, engaging tale whose strengths are plot and character. The novel is a commendably unique, quirky blend of genres: murder-mystery, science-fiction, and subdued horror; and within this blend, the author provides his audiences with mysteries and surprises that give a vitality to the plot. The story is completely absorbing, and is well-suited for adult road-trips (i.e., the story is not appropriate for children). The main character, Candy, is an edgy, charming, rough-hewn adolescent brought to life exceedingly well by audiobook narrator Stephanie Renee Clark. The collaboration between Woodward and Clark that has brought Candy to life is arguably the greatest strength of this production. Clark deserves high praise for the interpretation of the character--making Candy come alive, in voice, the way Woodward must have imagined. Clark also demonstrates a thoroughly impressive range of voices as she assumes the identity of numerous male and female characters, some with Mexican or British accents. What is truly remarkable about Clark's performance is the way she is able to capture subtleties of personality by means of her voice alone. She clearly has an extraordinary ear for the human voice in all its nuances. The range of personalities suggested by the voices engages listeners as much as the plot does. Particularly captivating--and I daresay endearing--are the voices of the psychologically fragile Christina and the affable Mexican truck driver. Clark is a gifted narrator whose talents promise to offer quality renderings of characters in any number of audio recordings.

Candy is a kick in the balls—but in a good way.

Candy. It used to be sugar and sweet, now it's blood and murder. That's what Justin M. Woodward does. He's that kind of twisted freak. And so is our heroine, she's just your typical girl but we watch her descend into a story of anarchy that only Woodward can deliver.

Expect serial killers, guns, crimes, murder and even a pink yo-yo with razor blades. I don't want to reveal anymore to you other than to say that it's filled with twists and turns you won't see coming. If I were to give you anymore beyond that, it'd be a disservice, as the way Woodward, writes is to dangle only a thread in front of you to keep you guessing and the pages turning (or the audio button playing in this case).

Now this great story demands a great narrator and Stephanie Renee Clark, delivers!

She amazingly fills the role of Candy in a way few narrators do, it was so natural that I can total believe she was the character herself.

An amazing story and an amazing performance all around!

Very fun ride!

Quite a fun thriller with some surprising plot twists! I almost wish it was longer so I could've listened to more of the story. The voice actress was incredibly talented and did a great job of developing Candy's personality! looking forward to book two whenever it comes out.
