    "Imaginative & Soothing"
    Overall

    Having to read this for a class for school, I found the audio form as an imaginative and soothing alternative. The narrator's voice electrifies the story and adds a cultural spice to the listening experience. Overall, a great listen! The recipes made my mouth water!

    Story

    This is the tale of the happy but ill-fated Candide and his progressive disillusionment with the idea that we live in the best of all possible worlds. His tutor, Dr. Pangloss, embodies this philosophy of good cheer, even in the face of ever more absurd misfortunes. Luckily, Candide's other companions provide an over-supply of good sense.

    Overall

    If you enjoy the classics, this might be for you. If you wish to avoid a ghorish, pessimistic-filled world of literary turmoil...avoid it. The audio quality is fine, but the narrator can get a little boring (or was it Candide?). You'll definitely love it or hate it...I'm the latter.
