Impossible de lire cet ouvrage. Il manque des mots, des segments, voire même probablement des phrases entières dès les premières pages.
J'aimerais être remboursée ou bien bénéficier d'une autre version.

L'histoire est vraiment très synthétique par rapport au film. J'avais vu le film avant,je pense qu'il vaut mieux lire d'abord et voir le film ensuite. Je me souvenais de l'histoire d'amour de Benjamin, histoire impossible puisque leurs vies se croisent : il rajeunit, elle vieillit...Dans le livre il croise une femme mais, c'est tout juste mentionné.Finalement, je suis restée un peu sur ma faim.

Une nouvelle qui se lit très vite et dont l'idée de départ est fascinante. Malgré quelques questions sans réponse (quid de la mère de Benjamin?), j'ai apprécié ce livre. Un conseil ne le lisez pas avant de regarder le DVD qui n'a rien à voir (sauf l'idée de départ) et qui donc m'a complètement déçue...

comme beaucoup de romans de fitzerald il y a là une ironie mordante, qui met presque mal à l'aise et nous oblige à réfléchir à nos vies; beaucoup plus noir que le film qui était assez édulcoré

1.0 étoiles sur 5 AVOID THE "TIMELESS CLASSICS" EDITION 26 septembre 2011
Par J. A. I. - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Avoid the Timeless Classics edition. It is a mess. Far from being "carefully formatted" it is in fact full of typos and odd formatting choices that distract and detract from the enjoyment of Fitzgerald's stories. If you wish to save money just download the free version which is certainly no worse than the awful Timeless Classic edition.

If you want a better file try one of the more expensive editions.

If anyone at the "publisher" (or at Amazon) cares I would appreciate a refund on this ebook or a free download of a better edition.

I’ve seen the movie (twice), and I’ve been looking forward to reading the short story that the movie is based for a while now. The movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has very little in common with the book. The name is the same, and the core is the same, Benjamin Button is born old and as he grows older he grows younger both in the book and the movie. But in the book, he is raised by his father and not abandon at birth. And all the rest of the book differs also from the movie.

I liked the story, first I couldn’t help but compare the story with movie and feel that the story was lacking everything the movie had, but soon I was sucked into the story and I’m glad it was different since it’s more fun reading something that not exactly like the movie.

It’s a bittersweet story and in a way a cruel story since Benjamin all under his life is met with contempt and misunderstanding. The story is set during the latter half of the 19th century but it could as well be taking place now a day since being different is something that is always going to be met with ignorance.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book design, but what's inside? 28 octobre 2011
Par Stephen L. Powell - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Tales of the Jazz Age (Penguin Classics Hardcover) does not contain the original contents of the 1922 book of the same title. This edition contains the following eight stories.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Head and Shoulders
The Cut-Glass Bowl
The Four Fists
May Day
'O Russet Witch!'
Bernice Bobs Her Hair
The Lees of Happiness

Of these stories five are also included in Flappers and Philosophers: The Collected Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald (Penguin Classics Hardcover). If you're buying these books as a book collector (like me) you'll want both titles because they are gorgeous editions. If however you're not intending on buying both I suggest purchasing Flappers and Philosophers instead as it has the majority of these stories plus many more.

Kindle free version:

1. Jelly Bean - Reviewed elsewhere.

2. The Camel's Hump - After being told `no' to his marriage proposal... ultimatum, Perry gets pretty liquored up. Using a cab driver as an assistant the two go to a circus party as, in tandem, a camel. The literary depiction of these two trying to walk is excellent: `The camel had a halting gait - and as he walked he alternatively elongated and contracted like a gigantic concertina.' (468).
Seeing his love interest at the party Perry soon finds himself in a mock wedding. Accidently handing over his earlier intended marriage license, followed by a ruse from the camel's hump - he's married and the rest is history.

3. May Day - Gordon's in a pinch, needs some m money to pay off an old flame that's hounding him and is capable of causing him trouble. Dean, well-to-do, the person from whom Gordon seeks financial assistance. Drinking having taken its toll on Gordon he soon meets Edith, a long since past love interest / opportunity, but also encounters Jewel (the aforementioned woman to whom money is owed)... here's where it really goes poorly for Gordon. The end result: Him not being able to deal with the circumstances.
The story is interesting in its anti-socialism feud depictions and partly existential bent toward the absurdist nature of all things.

4. Porcelain and Pink - A play which sees a young woman, nude, in a bathtub. Julie Mavis occupies the tub; her sister Lois wants the tub. What happens when Lois' beau came calling at the bathroom window and identities are suddenly confused?

5. The Diamond As Big As The Ritz - John T. Unger meets Percy Washington who's father has a diamond of the title. Of course it's a huge secret. Imagine the plummet of the diamond trade, maybe even market crashes. Naturally `guests' are infrequent and even those, John is informed by Kismine, Percy's sister, are generally not allowed to leave.
The Washington father is deemed ` the richest man that ever lived. Yet was he worth anything at all?' (1722). Not a cruel man, Mr. Washington offers (and wishes for the actual potentials) his prisoners ways out, but fear of the secret escaping prevents their release. The morality displayed in John's love for Kismine when he discovers he `isn't much better than a human corpse' and their subsequent eloping epitomizes FS Fitzgerald's `love as savior' philosophy. The concluding prayer by the Washington's and offer of a diamond to God indicates the absurdities of this world (`even God has a price'), as does the stealing of rhinestones instead of diamonds by Kismine. Forcing herself and John to live a life of poverty after escaping the desert.

6. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Reviewed elsewhere.

7. Tarquin of Cheapside - A man is seeking to be hidden from two seekers of justice, the crime regarding the act he'd committed upon one of the men's sisters. Hidden by a `friend', now accomplice the fellow writes an expose concerning the reason the men were hunting him. His host is given a copy of the work; we learn only the tales appalling title.

8. O Russett Witch! - Merlin Grainger works at the `Moonlight Quill', a bookshop named for its proprietor. Here he meets `Caroline' for the first time. She destroys the store and leaves Merlin in lust. Merlin encounters her many more times over the telling of the story that is his life in its near entirety. These encounters however, in the end, are never what Merlin had perceived them to be... if only he'd read the newspapers. My favorite story if for nothing other than the closing line: 'There was nothing left but heaven, where he would meet those who, like him, had wasted earth.'

9. The Lees of Happiness - Jeffery Curtain develops an embolism which puts him in coma-state. Despite all of life's hardships and temptations his wife remains by his side for eleven years.

10. Mr. Icky - Another play. Mr. Icky's children represent the kids of the jazz age. Likely representing the old era and the state of `being out of touch with the times' his children look down upon him and his practices, ways, habits and thoughts. Upon his death one of his sons is kind enough to proffer a mothball.

11. Jemina - Tantrums versus Doldrums. Two hillbilly families who one day encounter a `civilized folk' looking to buy land. Jemina Tantrum and the prospector fall in love but perish in the battle between the families. Jemina is `a human alcohol lamp' (from distilling whiskey) and the stranger... `was wonderful. When he talked his lips moved.'
The point of the story seems to be going out as one, that link and connectedness.

I have wanted to find this since the movie came out – I didn’t even see the movie because I wanted to find some kind of book first—so I was very happy to get this! It was short and to the point, I read it all in one sitting. I feel for Benjamin though, a misfit from the day he was born until the day he died. It was a sad story in my opinion, even when he was happy.

The art was nice, as was the story written. It was indeed a very interesting idea, but one I’m glad will never happen to an actual person – old at birth, baby at death. It would be a horrible life, but it made for a great (though sad) original story.
