Publisher's Summary

F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote many wonderful romantic and realistic short stories and a few incredible "on the edge" fantasy and supernatural stories. Although the story of "Benjamin Button" is quite different than the 2009 movie, the premise is the same - a man is born old and lives his life backwards! Fizgerald says he got the idea from Mark Twain's remark that it was a pity that the best part of life came at the beginning and the worst part at the end.

Great story

A got this story after watching the movie and, not surprisingly, found that the movie used the basic concept and that's about all. That being said, it was a great story - what an imagination Fitzgerald had! Reading was good, too. Loved the voices of Button at various ages.

Nice suprise

I didn't particularly like the movie but got this anyway just to see what it was like. Glad I did.
Much shorter but also a much better story than the movie. Reading was also quite good.
