Your favourite Benjamin Button’s life stage and why.
The stage that I liked the most is when Benjamin Button is 35 years old and begins to enjoy life, going to parties and being handsome and being able to enjoy life, since until then he had been older and had not been able to enjoy it So.
Why did General Moncrief change his opinion about Benjamin Button?
General Moncrief did not want his daughter to marry a man much older than her, since Benjamin Button was 50 years old and his daughter was much younger. At first he refused to let them marry, but after Benjamin Button helped him publish the book he was writing, he changed his mind and let him marry his daughter.
Evolution of the relationship between Benjamin Button and Hildergarde Moncrief
The relationship is very rare, since it is not normal for such a young girl to want to marry a 50 years old man. At first the relationship is nice, but as the years go by, it becomes very difficult, since Benjamin Button is getting younger and Hildergarde Moncrief older.

Your favourite character, description and why you like him/her.
My favorite character is Benjamin Button, because he is a child who is suffering for most of his life, since he is living at an age at which it would not behoove him to live. I also like him because although it is difficult to face those situations, he always pushes forward and tries to overcome all the obstacles that life throws at him.

Hi Benjamin, how are you?
I'm fine, although a little worried?
Because you're worried?
Because I'm getting younger and in the end I'll end up being a baby and I won't remember you and I don't like it.
Don't worry, I'll always be by your side and I'll take care of you even if you're a baby.
Did you like the story? Why?

Since that in real life, it could not be and it made me curious and wanted to read the book, because I wanted to know if in the end, Benjamin Button would die.
Embarrassing or hard situations in Benjamin Button’s life. Description of these
situations and why they are humiliating.
The first embarrassing situation is when he is born, since his father brings him a clown suit to the hospital and he does not like it. Another situation is when he is going to enroll in the university and they laugh at him, because they tell him that he is too old to enroll. He also doesn't tell his wife when he meets her, that the man who was going to the party was her father, since she thinks that since they are the same age, he thinks they are brothers.
