A great Classic...
which I have always wanted to listen to. It is really entertaining and nicely read by Jeff Moon.
The book is hilariously funny and clearly full of criticism about finding the best of all possible worlds. I read somewhere that Candide is meant to be a criticism of Leibniz' philosophy. Personally. I cannot see why it should be false to strive for the best of all possible worlds. To me that means making the world a better place.
I find Voltaire's language is a bit awkward/cumbersome when compared to how we express things today. So that I had to get used to.
So it is also quite possible that either I simply misunderstood Voltaire completely or Voltaire completely misunderstood Leibniz - or both :-)
Find out yourself. I can recommend the book and was very well entertained for three hours and then some.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."
