Candy Kindle Edition
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.

CANDY was originally presented in serial form on the Justin Woodward fan page. I did not get a chance to read it in it serial form, and for that I am so happy. I think having to wait week after week to see what would happen to our anti-heroine would have given me a aneurysm. Once I started reading I could not put it down.
The story is told to us by Candy Tran, an 18 year old fresh off graduation and suddenly thrust into a world wind of circumstance she has no control over. She is accompanied by her boyfriend Nick as they travel cross country on a ever changing and somewhat disturbing odyssey of violence.
Justin's tale is unique and keeps the reader in the dark just as much as the characters in the story. Just when you think you have something figured out...bam...he changes it and your left slack jawed, having to start your thought process all over again. Also extra kudos to the author for narrating the book completely from the view of the main character Candy. He manages to sound more like a teenage girl than my own teenage daughter.
So its a horror, thriller, road movie, even a love story of sorts.
Just think of Quentin Tarantino directing a movie of On The Road with a splash of Natural Born Killers and The X-Files, and you might come close to the story of CANDY.
I really enjoyed this book and have already passed it on to another person to read. (and only because I own a 2nd signed copy). Definitely worth your time to pick up and read.
Justin tells the story of Candy Tran who gets herself wrapped up in an unbelievable cross-country, vigilante-like, killing spree - meeting some of the most unusual characters along the way. What she doesn’t realize is that everything, from the very beginning has been carefully orchestrated, sometimes with disastrous results.
This story has twists, turns, humor, and will keep you guessing - even after you read the last line. I can see Candy Tran making a few more appearances in a series of books by Justin.
This is a quick read, not to be passed on.

When you tell a story like this, you need an engaging narrator, and Candy Tran is exactly that. Despite what she gets involved with, and how crazy it gets, she remains likeable, and the voice that Woodward gives her adds to the entertainment no end.
I can see the similarities to early Palahniuk, but Woodward is not a copycat; he very much has his own unique voice and style.
This book was recommended to me through a friend, and I didn't read a synopsis, I just picked it up and read it.
Full of action, intrigue and mystery this book did not fail.
If you are looking for truly enjoyable read, I highly recommend this!
