This frankly hilarious as well as philosophical story follows Candide and his tutor Pangloss, as they journey the earth following the mantra: ¡®All is for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds¡¯.

This adage, however, is disproved at many turns, with the characters encountering many forms of opposition to their outlook. Candide realises some of the horrors the eighteenth-century world contains, not without moments of sublime comedy, but is there any light at the end of the tunnel for the travelers?

Francois-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), known better by his pen-name Voltaire, was hailed as a genius of the ¡®Enlightenment¡¯, a philosophical and political movement which championed logical reasoning above all else.

The brilliant unabridged narration brings out all the ironies, tragedy and exuberant comedy of this 18th-century classic - Rachael Redford, The Observer
