The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is an absolutely wonderful short story by the author of The Great Gatsby. In a nutshell, it is about a baby who is born as an old man and ages backwards. That's a fascinating premise and Fitzgerald pulls it off flawlessly. This story was made into a movie starring Brad Pitt in 2008. I haven't seen the movie but I was sad when it came out because the story is so good and I knew the film would detract from the story.

A true classic.

There is some length to this story so it is definitely not just a one day read. I've put it onto a word document and it was 28 pages long so that's pretty long. But there is everything you could ever want in a story in this masterpiece.
