“Best of All Possible Worlds" is a literary tour de force of real genius. The narrative voice is one of a kind: witty, shrewd, captivating, hilarious. Its satirical quality as well as the sheer power of the narrative style rival Voltaire in "Candide." Anderson’s brilliant imagination for his story line knows no bounds and signifies his indelible mark as a story teller. This ambitious epic genuinely is the best of all possible literary novels – read this masterpiece.
