Dy's Take

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this sad, lyrical, beautiful little story.  I tried to sit through the movie and fell asleep. The short story is much better. It was poignant and wonderful in a way I didn’t think Fitzgerald could be after having Gatsby shoved down my throat TWICE in high school by virtue of switching schools between semesters my junior year.

Ignore the movie and read the story.

PS – I heart Stanza (and their awesome library of free content that doesn’t suck the way so much of the free stuff from Amazon and B&N does!)

  1. Interesting — Robert and I just watched the movie on Sunday night. It’s long, but we liked it. Now I want to read the story. =)
