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.

A classic story that moves at a quick pace. You don't have much time to feel bad for him because his luck quickly changes. I real loved this book and listening to it again. The guy narrator does a great job.
The time period that it was set in, and Benjamin's excitement for life. He packs a lot of living into a what seems like a short lifetime.
Benjamin I would love to meet and here more about his life. I would also like a word with his father about his poor parenting skills.
Fitzgerald is an amazing author. And this short story very well illustrates the ideals and stereotypes that go along with age and the aging process.... it's a very interesting story and really makes the reader ponder the issues it brings up. The narrator did a fine job. And it was well worth listening to.
I absolutely hated the narrator and his phoney accent. It was so bad it was distracting and I have no doubt that I would have enjoyed the story more in a different voice. If it was more than an hour long, I don't think I would have made it through.
I don't think so
The ending, beginning and the middle was strange
It already has. Brad Pitt played the lead
