"Brownstein combines humor, absurdity, and elegy to create linked stories that are strong enough to stand on their own....[He] demonstrates a talent for capturing innocence comparable to that of Salinger or Capote.(Library Journal)

Not very good
I have already listened to the original short story of Benjamin Button and thought this might be a longer, more detailed story of the same character but it is nothing like that. It jumps all over the place telling stories of people who, I guess, live in the same building as Benjamin Button happened to be for a time. It's confusing and makes little sense. Ridiculous that they would call it the Curious Case of Benjamin Button when he is only one little blip in the entire story. I'm halfway through the book and the Benjamin Button bit has already come and gone and we're on to people who ditch their families to spy on them from across the street?!?! If the characters were interesting, it would be different. They aren't interesting. And neither is this book. I'll keep slogging through as I paid good money fot this thing but it's such a waste that the writer spent all this time making up other characters and stories of their dull lives when they could have embellished such an interesting tale as Benjamin Button.

Crude adolescent issues rehashed over and over. Can we grow up and move on already? Let's abolish writing schools that produce cookie cutter writers who wallow in adolescent drivel. There's a lot happening in the world beyond one's navel. It's definitely time for a new enlightenment.
