Format: Taschenbuch
I read this book because it is a required book in my History class. When I read the book for the first time, I did not understand much of it. However, after doing some research about Voltaire and his work, I think that Candide is a really good book. Voltaire is a good author since he can smoothly write his arguements toward Liebniz and Alexander Pope. Candide criticizes the optimitism of Liebniz and Alexander Pope's belief that "All is best of all possible worlds." Voltaire first thought that Alexander Pope is a great poet in his and he admires him. He even says that he can not write as good as him.However, after the earthquake in Lisbon earthquake in Lisbon in November 1755 which killed two third of the city, he doubts the belief that become very popular at that time. He realizes that Alexander Pope is the same as Leibniz. He finds that their optimitism is ridiculous. He questions the belief and finally writes a poem about the earthquake in Lisbon. He soon gets replies from Rousseau. Nevertheless, Voltaire replies the Rousseau's letter by simply saying that he was sick and couldn't talk anything about it. Few years later, Candide was produced which also replies Rousseau's letter. He actually denies that he is the writer of this book because he is afraid of the punishment, but everybody knows that he is the writer. Candide's books were burn as soon as it is being published because of its strong criticism. In conclusion, the book is really great and Candide was the best of such in Voltaire's.

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 14. September 2007
Format: Taschenbuch
Ever since philosophers began thinking about the meaning of life, a favorite question has been "Why do bad things happen to good people?". In Voltaire's day, this issue was primarily pursued either from the perspective of faith (everything that happens is God's will and must be for Divine purpose) or of reason (What do these events mean to you, as you interpret them subjectively?). Infuriated by the reaction by some members of the church to a horrible loss of life from an earthquake in Lisbon, Voltaire wrote this hard-biting satire of the human condition to explore these questions.

Before reading further, let me share a word of caution. This book is filled with human atrocities of the most gruesome sort. Anything that you can imagine could occur in war, an Inquisition, or during piracy happens in this book. If you find such matters distressing (as many will, and more should), this book will be unpleasant reading. You should find another book to read.

The book begins as Candide is raised in the household of a minor noble family in Westphalia, where he is educated by Dr. Pangloss, a student of metaphysical questions. Pangloss believes that this is the best of all possible worlds and deeply ingrains that view into his pupil. Candide is buoyed by that thought as he encounters many setbacks in the course of the book as he travels through many parts of Europe, Turkey, and South America.

All is well for Candide until he falls in love with the Baron's daughter and is caught kissing her hand by the Baron. The Baron immediately kicks Candide out of the castle (literally on the backside), and Candide's wanderings begin. Think of this as being like expulsion from the Garden of Eden for Adam.

This book is one of the best I've ever read. Voltaire's satire remains just as witty and relevant today as the day he wrote it. He was an amazing man with an uncanny grasp of society's foibles. Candide's endeavors never fail to amuse, and the entire book is a fantastic success.

Candide may seem to be just another adventure story at first, but farther and deeper into the book there is a beautiful maze of philosophy... anyone who likes to "read between the lines" and knows the true value of happiness will love this book.
