Audio Book Summary

While most of us worry about the steady onslaught of old age, Benjamin Button had a much more odious dilemma. Benjamin was born, in all appearance, as an old man. Follow the pleasurable tale of his life as he grapples with the problem of constantly getting younger.

Note: While the movie by the same name, starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchette, featured spectacular visual effects, it was only loosely based on the short story and actually only seems to maintain the concept of a man aging in reverse direction. Don't be surprised to find an entirely different story in the original work by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    The narrator was a good fit for the story. The way he read made the story come more alive.

    Loved it! Didn't like the film at all. This, the original story, provokes much thought as well as providing a hint of the social history of the time it was written in. I highly recommend this.

    The narrator was good. He wasn't droning on, although it did definitely sound better sped up. The story was amazing.

    This book was clumsily written with lots of plot holes. Characters were 2 dimensional and unbelievable. Watch the movie instead it!
