Many of the books we read were very enjoyable and interesting, but my overall favorite was Voltaire's Candide. Candide was funny at some points, and very serious at others, creating a very balanced, interesting read. I enjoyed everything about it, especially the political and social commentary that Voltaire managed to put into the novel. I would prepare this for the AP Exam, but I feel like it doesn't have the universal themes that other novels we have read have. Overall I liked the class and especially the novel Candide.
