Description of ''The curious case of Benjamin Button''
The story of Benjamin Button is very weird. It all started from his birth. He was born an old man! I mean when he was 18 he looked like 42. Anyways, at first his didn't like him, but when the years passed and he was 12 they were good friends. When people saw them in the street they thought that they were brothers. Because when Benjamin was 12 he looked like 50. When Benjamin was 18 and he wanted to go at the Yale College, like his father, the proffesor of his class thought he that he was a crazy man who didn't know who he was and all the children were laughing at him.
When Benjamin was 20 he had his 1st love in the Shevlin's Country House. He had his 1st dance with her and she told him that she liked men at his age, because she thought he was 50. But Benjamin didn't tell her anything about his real age. And they quickly fell in love. When they got married everyone was making silly stories about Benjamin, but Hildegarde, his wife, didn't believe them, even the true one. She said that she would be married with Benjamin and nothing could change her mind.
In 1880 and 1895 everything went very well mostly with Benjamin's job. He was making a lot of money, because of his ideas. Even Hildegarde's dad was very proud of his daughters husband. As time passed Benjamin was liked by everyone he met and he was more energetic as he grew. But Hildegarde was getting more and more serious. Before fifteen years she wanted to go out all the time.
Soon, Benjamin and Hildegarde were like two strangers in the same house. Benjamin was invited to every party. He was dancing with the prettiest women and talking to the smartest girls. As Benjamin grew, he was getting younger. In 1904 Hildegarde was living in Italy and Benjamin was living somewhere else with his son, Roscoe, and his other wife. In 1920 Benjamin was in kindergarden and he was able to play with Roscoes' child. He was a baby now, and his life ended happily like a baby!
