あらすじ・解説

Candide and his tutor, Pangloss, travel the globe trying to follow the philosophy "All is for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds". However, they are stung and let down at every turn, being robbed, tortured, and ridiculed, amongst other trials.

On hearing about their often disastrous travels, a listener feels unfortunately less than empathetic, and can't help laughing out loud at this very funny account of the trail our optimistic travellers take, and at their eternal and endearing joy at the world and its potential discoveries.

Read beautifully by Andrew Sachs.

Why the music?

Story was good, narrator, very good; but the musical interludes were too frequent and much too long. The music didn't enhance the experience, but rather seemed out of place

SO glad I picked this up.

I have learned a bit about the French Revolution and I had learned that very much of it was inspired by Voltaire and it made me we want to understand a bit about him. I got this with a pretty good deal and I absolutely adore it. The reading, or should I say acting, is completely superb. The characters all have such wonderful voices that really bring out the characteristics of that person. the attitude, the humor, and the tragedy are so wonderfully displayed in this I really recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for fun, almost satirical poke at the world, and the ways of the human race. I just finished it, and the next book I'm going to listen to? This one. Again.

Beautifully performed!

Would you consider the audio edition of Candide to be better than the print version?

The audio edition brings clarity to the multiplicity of characters and the performance animates each one in a memorable way. To me, this makes the audio version compelling in a much different way from the book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the characters are compelling. The pastiche created by the entirety is what makes the work great.

Have you listened to any of Andrew Sachs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other Andrew Sachs performances but plan to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book is hilarious and, as a result, horrifying because of the compelling and biting satire ensconced within the clever and brilliant writing.

Quaint story; well performed; irritating interlude music

Andrew Sachs performs Lowell Blair’s translation of Candide very nicely. The only irritating thing about this audio version is the irritating interlude music.

I was completely enthralled!

To my surprise, I loved it! It wasn't what I was expecting, but it was very interesting and I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting for every next word lol.

Brilliant, as expected

I had to read this for one of my classes, and was happily surprised. I certainly had heard of Candide before but never took the time to read it. It was just plain brilliant. Having it in audio form brought the book to life.

A wonderful classic.

I very much enjoyed this timeless classic. Work keeps at bay the three great evils, boredom, vice, and need.

Excellent

This has been on my ‘must read’/‘must hear’ for so long : i’m glad I finally did. Voltaire is a great storyteller, and it is clear that Candide is his magnum opus. Beautifully narrated by Andrew Sachs, with excellent choice of background music

An intriguing tale ..

I will be listening to this again! There’s a lot of ideas to take in and it really is laugh out loud funny if your into philosophical irony/satire. A great voice and delivery too. Thanks Audible!

Tres bizarre

What a strange book. I would think it was a children's book if it weren't so gruesome in parts. Romps through at a rapid pace the trek throughout the world of a silly naive man and his philosophical friends. Basically telling you, don't think too much, just work hard and enjoy life. Think Voltaire would have been quicker to just read the Bible, John 16:33 "here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows, but take heart, because I have overcome the world". Also found the little ditties from Saint-Saens fossils between each chapter added the the speed of the romp, and a bit unnecessary.
