Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case Of Benjamin ButtonThe Curious Case Of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve just finished reading this as my choice for this months theme (Book Club) “Read a book published before you were born”. The original story was published during the 1920s/1930s.

It’s definitely an interesting story and good to put words to the idea that was behind the film. It was also only a very short story.

I did start out listening to it via audiobook through Loyal Books public domain site thinking as it was only around an hour long I would be able to manage it, but I just couldn’t do it, I lasted 18 minutes and 3 seconds. So I found the eBook version via iBooks and continued on there.

I did enjoy it actually even though it was short. Fitzgerald managed to grab my interest right at the start and keep it going until the end.
