Candide by Voltaire

Candide by Voltaire

I'm on a quest to read all the classics, starting with Candide. I suggest you research this one a little bit before you start it - just so you will understand the satirical undertones and everything Voltaire is trying to get across, otherwise it will seem pointless to you. The plot is extremely fast paced, but super funny and I'm finding myself laughing out loud at a few parts. It's a short book at about 110 pages so you'll finish it quickly. It's excellent so far and I'm about half way through.
