When I started to read this, I didn't care for it...I got somewhat engrossed in the story however as time went on...or uh..backwards...It's not a happy book at all and the main character is insanely obsessed with a woman and should be committed. If you are looking for an upbeat book with a happy ending, this isn't it.
If not for the excellent narration, I would not have finished this book. But it did have promise, which kept me hoping for more ? which never came.
I listen to this book last fall. Now I see that Brad Pitt has a new movie coming out that has the same storyline but a different name. ("The Curious Case of Benjimen Button") I wonder if it credits this book?? I just saw a quick preview at the movies and it drove me crazy trying to remember why the storyline sounded so familiar.
