favorite read of the yr- candide

I really enjoyed Candide because it was super funny, clever and satirical.  It was very entertaining  illuminating on the human condition, and provided an interesting commentary on "Enlightened" society. I like it when hypocritical people are called out for it and he certainly attacked several groups.  He satirized religion and high officials in the government or judicial structures in a playful but striking way.  Overall- i thought it was an easy read and easily understood novella.
