    1. Vasia on said:

      Forrest Gump the movie is one of my favourite things in the world and I picked up this book expecting the same quirky humor and heartwarming feeling I get every time I see Tom Hanks playing this lovable character. This book was anything but those things. It really pisses me off when you can just tell from a book that the writer didn't really want to write it and only did it for the money. Gump and Co. is one of those books, using the same predictable tropes again and again and not really having [...]

      While I never read the Forrest Gump novel, I heard this sequel picked up at the end of the movie and continued on from there being as it's one of my favorite movies, I thought this was the perfect way to continue on with the characters (and admittedly, I was curious to know how he fared parenting). However, after reading it, I wish I could go back and unsee what I've seen in this book. Instead of making me enjoy the characters I loved so much, I found myself annoyed with them, their charm slowly [...]

      Basically, everything enjoyable about the novel Forrest Gump is missing in the sequel. I can't tell if it was a cheap attempt to cash in on the movie's success (being it was written a couple years later) or if the first one was lightening in a bottle. Whereas in the first novel, Gump finds himself being in the right place at the right time and usually comes out the better for it, in the sequel everything goes the opposite. I can't imagine how he doesn't just kill himself, considering how every s [...]

      "Gump & Co." is another thoroughly entertaining book. There is one note though, this book is not a continuation of the book "Forrest Gump", it was written after the movie's success and it actually continues the storyline from the movie, not the original novel.If you liked the movie read "Gump and Co." after watching the movie. If you liked both the movie and "Gump and Co." then read "Forrest Gump" and view it as just an alternative life for the character Forrest Gump.Forrest Gump is a great [...]

    5. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      I thought this book sounded amazing, but unfortunately it didn't hold a candle to the original novel before it, or the film adaptation. It's not a terrible sequel, but I think it could've been more than it was.

    6. J Jahir on said:

      libro genial, pero realmente, muy cruel. si se han visto las películas sabrán que la historia que nos ha cautivado a todos, Forrest gump, es completamente diferente que en los libros. Ríes, pero este libro no es tanto de comedia sino de drama y desventuras.Su vida se vuelve un inffierno total y absoluto desde que cae la empresa de camarones, pero ahora tiene la ayuda de alguien: su hijo.Recuerdo que aquí me quedé un poco en plan investigador porque todo lo acontecido en los sucesos que se c [...]

      A fun, quick read. I read a review that said it was based on the movie and not the first book but not true. There was a very brief movie tie in but it had no influence on the story. 3 1/2 stars.

    8. Robin on said:

      Pokračování Forrestova životního příběhu, tam kde skončila první kniha i film. Dobré, ale už ne tak okouzlící a originální jako "první část".

      Me reí muchísimo, aunque tuvo sus partes cruds tamblién.

    10. Tapani Aulu on said:

      Entistä hullumpaa menoa "et kuitenkaan usko" -tyyliin. Forrest tapaa tässä muuten Tom Hanksin, joka lupaa tehdä leffan hänen elämästään.

    11. Bridget Bailey on said:

      I had not read the first book but have seen the movie. Knowing how the movie was I knew this book would be the same way and I enjoyed it because I knew how the book was going to go. I read a lot of bad reviews for this book; however, if you know what kind of book you are getting into, they shouldn't have so many negative comments, they should have known better. It was a light book full of the many nuisances of Forrest Gump. One annoying thing I didn't like was that Forrest kept getting into thes [...]

    12. Jeff on said:

      The first book was witty, fun to read and they made a movie out of it you either hated or liked. Then came the academy awards where it won a slew of Oscars and not one member of the cast and crew thanked the author for whom this movie would never have ever been created. So, in a fit of pique (or so it's said), he wrote a sequel vowing to make it completely impossible to film. The result was a mess with little to no plot or pacing and to fit as many events and incidents as possible to the point o [...]

    13. Brittany Young on said:

      Both of these books are strange. I could t stand the original. This one was better but totally could’ve done without the academy awards ending. A rambling author does nothing good for a book; R. L. Stine writes better. Killing Lt. Dan pissed me off as well. I can’t sum this book up. It’ll make you laugh until the last two pages, though!

    14. Grahame on said:

      I laughed quite a bit when reading this. It was written after the movie was made and the endearing bits of the movie seemed to lead the author to include those types of stories.I didn't find the writing too flash but the story overall was very readable.

    15. Jay DeVine on said:

      "Forrest Gump" is one of the rare instances where the movie is better than the book. THis sequel should never have been written. It is atrocious.

    16. Roberta Sallee on said:

      Loved the Forest Gump movie.In reading the original book, I could see that the movie screenwriter had taken all the best bits from the book and made them better. The movie made Forest endearing and the incidents funny, the book, not so much.When I read an article saying the Tom Hanks didn't want to do a the sequel, although another Gump book had been written, I decided to give the book a try. I read it quickly, but just to get through it, nottely not.e it was fascinating or anything.Jenny was st [...]

      "Kysyin millä lailla minä voisin auttaa. -Survo paskaa putkeen niin paljon kuin ehdit, se sanoi."Forrest Gumpin jatko-osassa Gumpilla on iso haaste. Hänellä on poika, jonka äiti on kuollut ja hän on liian idiootti huolehtimaan pojasta. Niinpä poika on vanhenevan mummin hoteissa sillä aikaa kun Gump jälleen sotkee hyväntahtoisuudestaan huolimatta puolen maailman asiat 70-luvulta lähtien. Ja siinä välissä hän yrittää hoitaa isä-poika-asioita. Forrest Gump on kuin Arto Paasilinnaa [...]

    18. Kev Willoughby on said:

      Quite possibly the worst book I have ever read in my life. I tried to look past the fact that Forrest Gump is the narrator and that poor grammar and spelling are just part of his endearing character, but even the plot itself was very choppy and poorly arranged. This "franchise" is one of the very few book series that is easily dwarfed by the movie it inspired. Tom Hanks portrays a beloved character on the silver screen, but Forrest Gump is a nuisance to be endured on the written page. Whoever th [...]

    19. Patti on said:

      I finished this book in one sitting. I loved the first novel, and the movie is one of my all time favorites. It's a fun read, and carries on from the first book, with allusions to, and an explanation for the movie. Forrest once again finds himself embroiled in some of history's most memorable moments, and encounters many of his old friends on his journey to provide for his family and get to know his son. A lot of the reviews on here are not favourable, but, hey, I liked it!

    20. The Siegfried on said:

      Sincerely? It got old fast. As soon as you finished the first chapter, you are done with this book.Forest is an ass hole as before, but older and dumber. His son is a little smart ass, and not in a good way. Specially with his dumb father fucking it up again and again.Overall it has lost most of the charm of the first book.Conclusion: watch the movie. It's a WAY better experience than reading this books.

    21. Horalka97 on said:

      Jsem vášnivá čtenářka, ale do čtení této knihy jsem se musela nutit. Příběh mi přišel až moc nereálný a přemrštěný. Forrest opravdu zkazil vše, na co sáhl a už mi to připadalo směšné. Zbývalo mi ještě asi 100 stránek, ale protože si chci čtení užívat, tak jsem knihu odložila nedočtenou a ani se k ní nechci vracet.

    22. Anne on said:

      I didn't even finish this book. I couldn't. The first book let me down so much, I saw the sequel and I thought Well maybe.The fact is, I saw the movie before the books. Did not even know the books existed until last year. I usually side with books over movies, but this time I will have to say the movie outdid these books, hands down.

    23. michelle switzer on said:

      This book was such a disappointment. Tom Hanks gave Forest a loveable personality. The guy in this book is a cross between "Slingblade" and Pippi Longstockings. Expectations aside, everybody in this story acts stupid and rude. Oliver North and the Ayatollah were just buffoons. That's as far as I've gottenI'm looking for something else to read. 👎

    24. Nini on said:

      Owned this book but misplaced it so had to just read it again because it was a fantastic sequel to the movie. Why isn't Hollywood doing a sequel yet?? Perfect because Tom Hanks has gotten older as well.

      On retrouve avec plaisir l'humour et la chaleur du premier livre dans une série de péripéties toujours aussi fantasques ! Avec en prime cette fois la relation entre Forrest et son fils, très touchante.
