Read in January, 1966

I read Candide in French class, and enjoyed it enormously. Pangloss' eternal optimism is a bit much to take, but it makes for a very entertaining read as Candide and Pangloss make their way through a downward spiral of experiences. Voltaire is still a smart, witty writer with a joie de vivre that comes through on every page.
