B. J. Harrison Reads The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

"I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

When Benjamin Button is born he looks oddly like an old man. He's not interested in playing with other kids and he's too low on energy to participate anyway. When Benjamin turns 20 it dawns on his family that he is aging backwards. The younger he grows, the more he learns to embrace life. But can happiness prevail when you're on a different timeline than everyone else?

Both humorous and melancholic, 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' is a captivating short story that will make you think. In 2008, David Fincher adapted it to the oscar winning film of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was an American author, who wrote four novels and hundreds of short stories. He is most famous for 'The Great Gatsby' (1925) and for his tumultuous relationship with wife Zelda Fitzgerald during the Jazz Age.

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
