F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic short story of a man born in his 70s who ages backward as those around him age in the normal direction. Both humorous and heartbreaking at times, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was the basis for the David Fincher movie of the same name, though the movie differs in several key ways from Fitzgerald's original story.

    " I now have no interest in seeing the film "...Benjamin Button" because I know it isn't going to be as cute or funny or clever as this story (and will probably be very schmaltzy). The other stories in the book are just as fantastic. "

    " I was intrigued by the movie. This is a collection of short stories. I read the Benjamin Button story which was of course, quite different from the movie and rather odd. i plan to read some of the other stories. "

    " The stories in this collection are more fantastical than the novels of Fitzgerald's I've read, and I missed his subtle, glimmering descriptions of the upper classes. The title story is ripe with all kinds of opportunity for comparing nature to experience in determining a person's true age, but it doesn't do much with the idea. The last story, "O Russet Witch!" is probably the most Fitzgeraldian and my favorite. In between, there's some crazy stuff about mountain-sized diamonds, kidnapped pilots and a murky chase through some place in England. "

    " Ever since reading "Tender is the Night" when I was in lower school, I have loved F. Scott Fitzgerald. "Paradise Lost" and "The Beautiful and Damned" just added to that love, though "The Great Gatsby" (and having to read it multiple times for multiple English classes) slightly dimmed it. I found "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" interesting, but perhaps not as much so as I thought it would be. I enjoyed "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" ever so much more--great story! "
