“Hearing Cady's voice was like a warm hug. If I could hear Cady’s voice every day during this pandemic, I’d be certain I would survive the pandemic.” - Elena M. (listener)
Cady McClain's first Audio Book was Emma Cline’s incredible debut novel The Girls, for which she won an Earphones AudioFile Award and recognition from Entertainment Weekly, AudioFile Magazine, and Publishers Weekly:
"Reader McClain is phenomenal, evoking the older Evie’s mature retrospection and struggle to analyze her own emotional state and the motivations of that tumultuous time, as well as the younger Evie’s yearning for acceptance and love and adventure. McClain also creates authentic, memorable voices for the other characters, including the lazy drawl of Suzanne and the seductive madness of Russell. A perfect marriage of text and narrator, this is the kind of audiobook that stays in your mind long after it’s finished."
She continued her award winning streak with a reading of April Smith's Home Sweet Home, winning her second Earphones AudioFile Award.
"McClain delivers credible characters and manages to set the fear-filled tone of the Midwest in the '50s. The combination of political ignorance and religious bigotry, delivered intelligently by McClain, makes for un-put-down-able listening."
