"Read firstly to enjoy and secondly to ponder"
As usual this work by Voltaire is peppered with an irreverent humour that transcends time and cultures. As a non-intellectual I would never consider reading Voltaire until a colleague recommended Candide to me and I was amazed at how accessible this 18th century philosopher is. This short story about two gargantuan aliens debating the meaning of life with the miniscule inhabitants of earth and is a perfect taster of the thoughts and writing style of one of mankind's greatest thinkers. This proves that a massive intellect can be anything but dry and boring.
