Hilarious! And yet deep in its own way.

One of the very few books on the so called "philosophy" I've been able to digest. I've literally devoured Candide when I was 16. And then I've read it again, with double pleasure and double laughing.

Besides, thanks to Voltaire I've discovered that Leibniz is not only a biscuit.

This book is suggested to everyone who wants to look at his/her life in a better way while in a difficult period. Don't worry guys: whatever your troubles are, Candide's ones are worst! Do you think you've got bad luck? Read at Candide!
