'Superbly controlled satire' Washington Post
'Joyously madcap' Publishers Weekly

Discover the bestselling novel that inspired the classic Oscar-winning film.
_______________________________

It's Forrest Gump as you've never seen him before, but just as lovable as ever.

At 6'6", 240 pounds, Forrest Gump is a difficult man to ignore, so follow Forrest from the football dynasties of Bear Bryant to the Vietnam War, from encounters with Presidents Johnson and Nixon to powwows with Chairman Mao. Go with Forrest to Harvard University, to a Hollywood movie set, on a professional wrestling tour, and into space on the oddest NASA mission ever.

The wonderfully warm, savagely barbed, and hilariously funny novel that inspired iconic film starring Tom Hanks.

Not as good as the film...

.

Losinx ,

If only it was based on a true story.

I did not know that the film was based on a book, but the old adage of the book being better than the film certainly holds up.

An engaging first person narrative, Forrest Gump - despite it's unbelievable tales and unlikely protagonist - draws you into a world where you sometimes want to check an online encyclopaedia just to see whether one man hasn't actually done all the deeds mentioned in this thin but enthralling tome. You don't check of course, as you know you'll be disappointed to discover proof that it's fiction.
