Book Notes: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Tales of the Jazz Age" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Tales of the Jazz AgeThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Tales of the Jazz Age by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The more I learn about Fitzgerald the more I am sad that he did not realise his impact during his own lifetime. I guess that those who contribute the most never do. I enjoyed the author's little introductions to each story which give a nice little preface. Every story in this is a gem, even if some of them are repeats from other FSF collations. I am still unable to comprehend how FSF could fathom, in his early twenties, what it was like to be an age he never reached. Overall, brilliant.
