Teen Book Review – Candide

8 out of 10 stars

Candide by Voltaire is an innocent, naïve, and young man who is raised by a family that has sheltered him from the actual world. That is, of course, until he does something that gets him evicted from his paradise-like castle. You’ll have to read it to see what he did. The story follows Candide as he faces the harsh reality of the world during the French Revolutionary. Follow him as he travels all around the world including El Dorado itself. It does have some dark and violent scenes/themes though, just an fyi. Overall, I would rate it 8/10 because it was a nice and short read.
