Summary

F. Scott Fitzgerald makes antebellum Baltimore his setting for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a fantastical tale with some Poe-like overtones about a baby born at age 70 who then lives life in reverse, his hair turning "in the dozen years of his life from white to iron-gray, the network of wrinkles on his face becoming less pronounced". What ramifications that creates for Benjamin's relationship with his father first and then later with his wife and his own son makes for some fantastical situations.

A Definate Must-Read

Such a beautiful, easy, intelligently written book.
The ending was so sad.
I would definately listen to this again. 😢🙂

The Genius of Fitzgerald

It can only go undisputed that F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of the greatest writers in the English language and this story fails to disappoint that. However I would not consider it necessary reading in order to appreciate this great man's literary genius.

Curiously Boring

I loved The Great Gatsby and expected a curious tale with interesting characters. This was boring and predictable. The performance was dry.
