The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Year Published: 1921
My Rating: 4 stars
This was an amazing story, the idea was so unique I just loved it.. plus it was the first book I read on my IPhone :)
Benjamin Button was born in 1860 an old worn and withered man, and as he grew "older" he was growing younger.. From having conversations with his grandfather and smoking cigars to playing with his grandchild and attending Kindergarten with him..
He became a successful business man, fell in love, married, had children, went to war, attended Harvard, prep school, kindergarten and ending with his nurse to take care of him..
Very interesting and inspiring, shows how the aging process effects the person and those around him, the respect he gets at certain phases in his life..
But it does keep me wondering HOW he was born? I mean he was the size of a grown man, surely his mom had a C-Section ;)
Now I need to check out the movie, I know Brad Pitt is in it, so I'm assuming he played the part well :)
Another review @ R. is for Reading
