Reviews

Rated out of 5 by from Life... what is it good for? Voltaire is one of my favourite philosophers of all time. No, he is my favourite philosopher of all time. And “Candide” is his most celebrated work. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in philosophy, or anyone who think that everything that happens in our world is for good. Yet despite everything in our lives, “we must cultivate our garden.” Everyone should have this classic in their book collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Candide (optimism), first published in 1759, has a lot to do with destiny, and how everything in preordained. Thus, whatever you do to try to change your life, you cannot possibly change it. If you are meant to meet a specific person, no matter what the situation is, you will run into them. This satire is the most unique story I have ever read; I did not know such stories even existed. The protagonist, Candide, is very optimistic, and believes that everything that happens is for the best. Candide is a classic and should be read by everyone; it is very short and can be completed within a few hours. 5/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quirky but Wise This odd little book has something important to say about life. Voltaire, a philosopher in the late 1700s, presents his cynical outlook on life through his sweet and naive character Candide, who is unlucky in both love and in life. Other players, such as the optimistic Dr. Pangloss, pessimistic Martin, and the object of Candid's affections, the lovely Cunegonde, encounter both fortune and misfortune while on their travels. This book is an important philosophical commentary. Read it!
