Publisher's Summary

Candide vivait paisible et innocent chez le baron de Thunder-ten-tronckh, en Westphalie. Dans son château, le précepteur Pangloss ("qui discourt de tout" en grec), représentation de Gottfried Leibniz, professait un optimisme béat. Candide partageait cette plénitude d'autant plus qu'il était amoureux de Cunégonde, fille du baron. Un jour, ce même baron surprend leurs amours et chasse Candide à coups de pied "dans le derrière".

Very clear narration

I listened to Candide for purposes of improving my French but it was very enjoyable as well. The narration was very clear which is vital for non-native speakers. Overall, I can only recommend it!
