    Max Tivoli is uniquely cursed. His mind ages normally, but he is born with the withered body of a 70-year-old man, and his body ages in reverse. Despite this torment, Max manages three times to cross paths with Alice, the woman who captures his heart. Because he appears to be a different person each time they meet, Max has three chances for true love.

    Overall

    I am absolutely captivated by "The Confessions of Max Tivoli." Its premise is preposterous, but after one employs willing suspension of disbelief, it makes for a great story. Max Tivoli is born with a 70-year old body which, as he gets older, gets younger. His "confession" is made when he's 60, but his body appears to be that of an 11-year-old. In it he reveals that he had encounters with the same woman--with whom he is madly in love--three different times in his life. She thought he was three different people. It says much about the underrated thing that is the love a man can have for a woman, and its steadfastness. It has its flaws--too many coincidences, and I typically guessed every surprise before it was revealed--but I still am enjoying it greatly. And nobody could say that this isn't a highly original plot line.

    Tastefully yours,
    Tom Fitzmorris
