Benjamin Button was literally born an old man. He lived a backwards life, for his body grew younger as the years passed him by. Come and listen to the original, unabridged story by F. Scott Fitzgerald which inspired the movie.

I have always loved this movie (with Brad Pitt), so I wanted to also enjoy the book experience. The movie and book differ greatly and the book seems to go too fast, although I respect that this was how Fitzgerald wrote it. It is still worth the listen though.
great author and narrator would recommend. excellent price. loved it. you need to get this edition
From Wilm., De. Love reading and audiobooks. Other interests include cooking, attending cultural events, my dogs, birding, music and movies.
Very entertaining , although somewhat predictable, since Fitzgerald wrote it in 1922. Very short, 1 1/2 hrs audio, superbly narrated by B. J. Harrison. Definitely worth the listen or read, especially from a literary great.
Excellence stands the test of time . With this very entertaining short story clearly worthy of a listen. I enjoyed this clever look at a twist on life, out of sequence and reactions to it.
Have heard of the film of the same name but never knew what it was about until now. Love the way the story was told. It had the feel of 'tales of the unexpected. Good story. Thank you.
"A great sketch of a novella read wonderfully. Thi"
This story has become the victim of the Brad Pitt film. As a novella it has a wonderfully light touch. It was never meant to be a novel. Beautifully read.
"A Quick, Concise Read That Is Interesting"
I chose this as I have seen the film and liked it. This was descriptive and easy to listen to, but I would have liked more detail in some parts. At times I found the narrator's imitation of accents annoying as well as their tone of voice. I wanted the story to be longer but it was a quick read. I read it during the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and it's a good book for reading challenges because of the length of the story. Very concise.
