Zadig

The final novel would of course be Voltaire. I am not a big fan of Voltaire, but I appreciate that which he did for writing.

The book read how I imagine most satires do: rise, and fall of fortune; impossible situations; suspense of believability of said situations; and, sarcastic tone in the prose. This was a typical satire.

I cared more about the protagonist, which given my past experiences with Voltaire is impressive, than other satires, but I did not care right after I closed the book. This could because I finished a challenge, and just wanted to breathe — next year, this will be spread out more effectively —.

In short, it was a nice way to end the challenge, but I still did not invest too much into the novel. It was a poster child for satire, but enjoyable in itself.
