I’VE READ MANY BOOKS, said Professor Mephesto, with an odd finality, wearily flattening his hands on the podium, addressing the seventy-six sophomores who sat in easy reverence, immortalizing his every phrase with their pads and pens, and now, as always, giving him the confidence to slowly, artfully dramatize his words, to pause, shrug, frown, gaze abstractly at the ceiling, allow a. wan wistful smile to play at his lips, and repeat quietly, many books. A grave nod of his magnificent head, and he continued: Yes, and in my time I’ve traveled widely.

Candy Christian is an adorably cute but naïve college girl (presumably eighteen years of age, although that is never specified) who suffers from a surfeit of sophomoric idealism, not to mention an excessive amount of misplaced empathy. She has been given a A+ on a paper she wrote entitled Contemporary Human Love wherein which she wrote, “To give of oneself – fully – is not merely a duty prescribed by an outmoded superstition, it is a beautiful and thrilling privilege.” And so what transpires is Candy innocently giving herself “fully” to those that “truly need” her. Needless to say, the thrust (wink, wink) of the book involves her doing just that.

There have been only two books I’ve read that had me laughing out loud; the first was Don Quixote, the second was Candy. Now, I’m not about to say that Candy has anywhere the literary merit of Don Quixote. It doesn’t. In fact, I can understand the criticisms found in the one- and two-star reviews. Still, I found the ridiculous silliness of Candy’s predilections to be wholly entertaining. I therefore have given this book 5 starts not because of its literary merit but because I found it to be so funny. That being said, my sense of humor may not correlate to yours, and I can understand if you disagree with my rating.

This is a satire on sex and conventional culture of the 1950s that keeps the reader interested throughout the adventures of Candy, a beautiful young and naive blonde. Candy is struck with the Leftist ideology of giving back something to others, a kind of twisted altruism. What she has to give is herself -- in a physical sense. Her encounters run the weird gamut of hunchback, uncle, fake spiritual guru, etc. She is the typical blonde airhead who realizes that giving herself this way isn't quite what she thought it would be, since she derives considerably more pleasure than she thought from giving. But she is also charming in her naive loss of innocence. "Good grief, it's daddy!; Gosh, what about my period?; Good heavens!" And there are quite a few forbidden words in certain places. It is very funny in places and full of satire throughout. Recommended only for those who have open minds and a sense of humor and satire.

The movie Candy is based on this book. I saw the film during it's release in 1969. Everyone thought it was about a teenage girl with loose morals who sleeps with every man she meets including in the film version Ringo Starr, Richard Burton, and others. Actually, the story is about a girl who is taken advantage of by every man she meets, including Marlon Brando as a phony Guru (in the movie). It is clear to me that the book is based on the French book of the same name entitled Candide, a story about a young boy who is taken advantage of everyone who comes within his orbit. This version of the tale involves a girl of high school age. It is an enjoyable read but don't forget who is really the victim in this story. The movie version has a 4 star rating on Amazon but is not available but you can add it to your wish list.

This book was published when I was a kid, and my older brother loved it. I read a review of it recently on the NY Times, so I thought I would read it to see what all the fuss is about.

There’s not much that is either funny or slapstick in this novel. Like most of the humor from the 1960s, women are depicted as complete idiots (“take my wife” jokes, or women drivers jokes) or sexually starved/active zombies (“there once was a girl from Nantucket”). Candy embodies this, and although it’s thought of as a parody, to a contemporary reader it is sometimes tough going.

Don’t read it to be entertained, but instead it’s a compelling period piece. For anyone who misses the 1960s, this novel is a good dose of reality.

Gold Crown
Just finished Candy. It was an electronic recommendation. Well, it’s not excellent as most reviewers state, just unexpectedly, ridiculously, eye-rolling tomfoolery sex-play. "Yeah, I went there." At first I thought the book was simply soft-core pornography; but after continuing on, I recognized the amusing mockery of it all. “Oh my god, you’ve got to be kidding me!” was uttered a lot. Unbelievably scandalized; a satire of a satire; Smut Comedic Absurdity. You get the picture. Anyway, no I don’t recommend to everyone (maybe a select few), but I don’t condemn it either. For such a straightforward book, it gives me a lot to talk about… and good stories to tell my perverted friends.

This is a classic and unique. Funny and erotic. A great book. Hip, rather odd, and quite enjoyable. Nothing else like it.

Not really my style. The story jumped around. Not all that funny, I can't recommend it. The uncle and dad, weird.

this book, once thought pornographic and titillating is now just blasé, no real wit or irony. Damn daddy anyway... Besides, I don't feel like fulfilling their need for volume.
