This had a slow start for me, but soon I really began to enjoy the story and the author's writing style. The premise will be familiar to anyone who has seen The Curious Tale of Benjamin Buttons (though I have not seen it). I found the story heartbreaking and endearing, all in one. It was fun to read about old-time San Francisco. It's well-worth a read. Check it out!

The Confessions of Max Tivoli is an interesting book about a man who lives his life in reverse. He starts out as an old man and as he ages, becomes a child. This is Andrew Sean Greer\'s first book and caused me to ponder the process of aging, living in the moment and love.
