After watching the movie, I was completely enthralled by the storyline. I decided to read the books just a few days after. I have to admit, the plot was completely original and I would've never have thought of it, but I couldn't see how they fit such a small book into such a long movie. I realized how much of their own imput was added and I was a bit dissapointing. It was a little dissapointing because the style of writing wasn't personal with the characters, but this story is such a wonderful fairy-tale like story. The story is a little vague to me, but overall, it's one of few stories that I'll remember for the rest of my life.

Here's a man who was born with a mark against him and managed to grow up when everything and everyone seems to be against him. He managed to get married, raise a child and have a complete life, quality of his life is another issue. When one thought everything seemed to be going well for him, he started to revert to nothingness.

I expected more of a storyline, even though it was a short story. I think having watched the movie first made me expect more from the book.

I really enjoyed reading this book. About half way through I was so eager to see the movie since the book was soo good. If you like the book dont see the movie. The movie has the same concept as the book but is very different.

This is an excellent work. While this is posted as a book review and the edition I used was a single story book, the truth is this is in actuality a short story. It definitely rates 5 out of 5 stars. I picked this edition up sometime around the time the film was being released. The book got mixed in box of other books during my last military move and sat unread until its recent rediscovery today. Since Fitzgerald was known more for his realism, I was surprised when I first heard about this story and its science fiction leanings. Furthermore, I was skeptical. I wondered if a realist could do justice to a scifi story. Fitzgerald did a wonderful job with the subject and the story. The good: The story flows with very few disconnects. Fitzgerald did a masterful job of telling the story of a man whose life is lived in reverse. The bad: The story is set up in 11 mini-chapters. For a story of only 52 pages, this was a little unnecessary. Overall, it is a very well written story.

The formatting for this is terrible. Do yourself a favor and buy a different copy just to make it easier to read.
