Publisher's Summary

Benjamin Button was literally born an old man. He lived a backwards life, for his body grew younger as the years passed him by. Come and listen to the original, unabridged story by F. Scott Fitzgerald which inspired the movie.

LOL Funny

I must OBJURGATE with anyone who does not find this hilarious. As is typical of the time of the writing we never hear from the woman who had the baby or old man. The attempts of the father to raise his old man son like a kid is just funny. B.J. does a great job with great timing in his reading. Get this one just for the fun of it.

good story, bad performance

classic story, but the fake British accent of the reader is insufferable. couldn't make it through.

Nothing like the movie

I thought Brad and Cate would end up together just like in the movie!! I didn't think you could run through an entire life story in around an hour but what a wordsmith Fitzgerald is. Maybe I'll let him have a crack at my biography next.
