So i had to read this for AP European History, and the ending seriously is seriously disturbing me, because I think about the meaning in stuff like Candide and his accomplices did in the book, way more than most kids my age. Anyone else have a response to reading this?

Besides the philosophical aspects, the irony was hysterical

Voltaire was a french enlightenment guy in the 18th century. He wrote Candide

I think a lot about the meaning behind stuff in life, so the ending is seriously f***ing with my head
