- Author F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is such a unique idea for a story, and one that really makes you ponder, from the start to the finish. It glosses over some slightly more important questions at the beginning - how did this woman give birth to a full size grown man, and what happened to her afterwards? How did they manage to keep it under wraps for so long?
But you have to put that aside, and just roll with the journey - which is an interesting one. How to be completely out of your time and not fit in with your peers because you’re different.
It’s a short read, and a good one. I quite liked the way it drifted away at the end, peaceful, which actually seems like a nice way to go. Perhaps we should all aspire to live life backwards!
