Description-
  • Voltaire and Pangloss travel the world looking for the good in life, but can they find it?

    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 themselves laughing out loud at this very funny account of the trail our optimistic travelers take, and at their eternal and endearing joy at the world and its potential discoveries. Read beautifully by Andrew Sachs.

About the Author-
  • Andrew Sachs has a voice perfect for audio. Measured and expressive, his readings are eclectic and all of an exceptionally high standard.
