The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
By F. Scott Fitzgerald
Adapted by Nunzio DeFilippisand Christina Weir
Illustrated by Kevin Cornell

Truly an epic story about a man who aged backwards. Backwards, you say?! Why that’s absurd! But it’s true!

Benjamin was born an old man with a long beard and moustache, and aged backwards until he faded away. While this is a really amazing story, it’s also quit tragic. For as the poor man should be living out his glory years, much like an Alzheimer’s patient he is losing who he is and was. The amazing adventures of his life are fading from memory, and he with them.

This adaptation contained all the heart and soul of the original story. As I read I felt Benjamin’s frustrations and grieved with him.  Cornell’s art is superb as he helps spin the yarn of Benjamin and his odd life. I read this whole book in one sitting I loved it so much. While the story is quite sad, it does have many high points and is truly very fun to read!
