This review is from: Candide, or Optimism (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Quite a rollicking, though dark read. In common with many of the classics from previous centuries, it suffers a bit through the passage of time and can seem a bit clumsy and unsophisticated at times, the casual sexism is quite jarring, but interesting none the less and some of the tales stick with you. It's important to read the introduction of a lot of its meaning may pass you by.
