Candide (version 3)


Read by John Van Stan

(4.8 stars; 6 reviews)

Ever since 1759, when Voltaire wrote "Candide" in ridicule of the notion that this is the best of all possible worlds, this world has been a gayer place for readers. Voltaire wrote it in three days, and five or six generations have found that its laughter does not grow old. - Summary by Philip Littell (4 hr 33 min)
