Read another graphic novel...WOW

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

By: Nunzio DeFilippis

Genre: Graphic novel

Pages: 64

Published: 2008

Read: December

2 out of 5

I never knew that this story was originally a short story (1922) written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, but then I am not an avid reader of the classic genre.  I enjoyed the movie (2008) that was adapted from this story, but this graphic novel is not very satisfactory.  Because I have not read Fitzgerald’s short story, I can only compare it to the movie and judge it by itself.  The drawings were mediocre and the story was vague and boring – there was no climax or the spectacle as in movie; rather just the undramatic facts.  So the most exciting aspect, for me, was the discovery that Fitzgerald had written a story with such an intriguing plot back in 1922.
