Daisy: I was so young and you were so old. Most of the book is spent on the first few years of his life, and then quickly works backwards.
Hart did not believe that Benjamin was only 18 years old. And top of all, Benjamin. I don't know if it is necessarily better written in parts, or if the plot itself simply distracted me from otherwise weak wordplay. To me, it was simply good storytelling. After agreeing to push the issue of how, technologically, the movie could be made aside, the group then simply discussed life. As a newborn, he was old and wrinkled and his horrified father Thomas Button leaves him on the doorstep of an old folk's home. This is probably the biggest life message delivered right at the very end of the movie.
Though he has all sorts of unusual adventures over the course of his life, it is his relationship with Daisy, and the hope that they will come together at the right time, that drives Benjamin forward. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. In this story of a man growing younger, there may be a lesson or two about aging gracefully. I am not sure if it was the writing or the narrator that gave this novel such a poor rating from me, but there was something I didn't like. Though the barbed-wire fence of the camp separates them, the boys begin a forbidden friendship, oblivious to the real nature of their surroundings.
I probably would not have tackled this story if it was not a selection in one of my groups. Then Hanna mysteriously disappears, leaving Michael heartbroken and confused. Daisy asks Caroline to read to her aloud the diary of Daisy's lifelong friend, Benjamin Button. Roger Button died after 1895 but before 1906. I would undo all of my mistakes.
In the end you can see he leaves Daisy due to his condition, he also sells his family business so that Daisy would have funds in the future. There are so many things about it for which I have positive associations: Cate Blanchett, David Fincher, Brad Pitt, Fitzgerald. Yes, it's slow, especially by today's movie standards, but it's certainly a unique story and it's nicely filmed, acted and directed. The imagery of actually seeing someone age backwards was frightful, oddly heartwarming and totally startling on the eye, I wonder what Fitzgerald would have made of it?. When Benjamin was eighteen he was erect as a man of fifty; he had more hair and it was of a dark gray; his step was firm, his voice had lost its cracked quaver and descended to a healthy baritone.
In order to find redemption, he sets out to change the lives of seven strangers. And I knew, that he knew, who I was. The story also showed the frail condition present in both old age and infancy where people need help from others.

This was such a pleasurable read and worthy of the short amount of time needed to complete.
In September 2006, actors , and entered negotiations to be cast into the film. The film starring Brad Pitt packed far more of an emotional punch for me, especially the ending of Button being nursed as a baby. Benjamin and another crewman are rescued by U. I think the idea of this short story is to show that being elderly, and a newborn is basically the same thing. 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. Rating: Think back a bit. Although one would expect her to lash out at Benjamin after so many years away, during which time he has experienced youth without any additional responsibilities, Daisy just accepts his unannounced visit rather politely.
