Reminded me of Don Quixote and a little of Pilgrim's Progress, but much shorter! Why? It is a story of an aspect of the human experience (its highs, lows, good, bad, and ugly). Like those mentioned above, but Candide does not discover meaning in his life. But, he keeps on truckin' and believing that it will all work out for some greater good. This one ranks high on my list, probably the best work I've read all year.
