The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Six Other Stories - F. Scott Fitzgerald This book comprised of 7 stories in total, 3 taken from Flappers and Philosophers, 3 from Tales of the Jazz Age and 1 much later short story from Taps at Reveille. It was a bit of a mixed bunch, with most of the themes being similar. I loved a couple of the short stories (Benjamin Button and May Day) and felt that most of the others were okay, but one story I hated and felt that the writing wasn't up to the same standard (the much later work of Crazy Sunday) I'd like to give this 4 stars for Benjamin Button alone, but the repetitiveness of the other stories and that awful last tale of Crazy Sunday knocks the book down a bit for me, so 3 stars. Still love Fitzgerald though!
