    "Nice work and a good quick listen"

    A quick read, but much better appreciated as an audiobook, it departs from the movie because this short story is written as a quirky fairy tale. Not to be taken lightly by any means, it is heartfelt and very revealing that while Benjamin goes through the ups and down of life in reverse, he is still treated like we all are--while he is a young old man and while he is an old young kid. Some things just don't change.

    A very worthwhile story. Read it or have it read to you. A departure from the movie (as are most books) and, in most ways, better.
