The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: A Graphic Novel — 4 years ago
I received this as a birthday present. I enjoyed the movie, but with some reservations. The book I enjoyed quite a bit.
This graphic novel follows the original short story very closely. Which is to say that it differs from the movie in almost every detail. It is a bittersweet story, but it is not really a love story in the way of the movie. It is simply the story of a man traveling backwards through life, physically, mentally and emotionally.
I really enjoyed the sepia tones of the art. The style is well-suited to the humorous, but melancholy story. I really cannot find a flaw.
I believe the book would be most appreciated by people who enjoyed the original story and those who enjoy slightly philosophical, whimsical stories. There is a possibility that if you really loved the movie, you might be disappointed with the graphic novel because it is entirely different in both tone and message.
