Books read in 2012: No. 37 -- Voltaire's Adventures Before Candide

by Martin Gibb

Started: April 28
Finished: April 29

Notes: Having just read Candide, specifically to brush up for reading this story, I now turn to this story.

Mini review: While Candide was a work of satire, here is a work of the complete absurd, mean "absurd" as a fictional motif and not as the modern usage of criticism. It's an interesting little tale, written somewhat in the tone of Candide.
