Candide by Voltaire - 1759, book

All right, but I don't understand why it's so acclaimed.

I read this a couple years ago and had pretty much the same reaction. I think it was probably fantastic in it's day but has lost a little something over the years. I would think it's roughly equivalent to "The Daily Show." In 250 years people probably won't understand what the hullabaloo was about that either.
