good story, bad performance

classic story, but the fake British accent of the reader is insufferable. couldn't make it through.

Alright... I Guess

This story is actually kind of dumb and not as charming as it thinks it is. Luckily it's short.

Classic

Any additional comments?

F. Scott Fitzgerald clearly knows how to hit hard in a story, and as he shows in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, he can also pull you along with simply a good story.

A Good Listen

Any additional comments?

Once you move past the absurdity of the concept and the preconceived ideas that you might have from watching the movie, this was solid story. It was funny and intriguing, while being short enough to listen to from start to finish without dedicating a whole afternoon or evening to it. Also, BJ Harrison's narration is spot on. This is definitely worth a listen.

Had a smile on my face the whole time

What did you love best about The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

I loved the story all the way through.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the comedy of the story. Benjamin Button was born with a great amount of wit.

What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

The narrator was great. I will look for more from him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't want to stop listening to it. Finished it in one sitting and then straight on to the Great Gatsby.

Any additional comments?

The only negative thing I can say about the story is that I am upset that I hadn't experienced it sooner. Now I have to buy the actual book and watch the movie.

LOL Funny

I must OBJURGATE with anyone who does not find this hilarious. As is typical of the time of the writing we never hear from the woman who had the baby or old man. The attempts of the father to raise his old man son like a kid is just funny. B.J. does a great job with great timing in his reading. Get this one just for the fun of it.

Interesting reflection on the phases of our lives

B.J. Harrison's reading of this unusual story was excellent. He really reflects emotion and humor very well! F. Scott Fitzgerald's story was most unusual and very funny at times, poignant at others. This makes you glad that this phenomenon doesn't really happen! It also really makes you think about how differently we act at different ages. I haven't seen the movie so I don't know how close it is. This is a nice short book, odd though it may be, and Fitzgerald's lovely writing makes this worth a listen. (Gatsby is a must, though! Jake Gyllenhaal's performance is brilliant, here on Audible!)

But why?

This was an entertainingly weird story. It was very much like one of those fabulous old Twilight Zone TV show episodes.

The difference, though, is that the Twilight Zone episodes always seemed to have a point. I couldn't see the point of this story.

Still, it was interesting and entertaining.
