Such a wonderful story. Full of humor and fun also. Probably one of the best books out there!
Great movie edition of the book. If you've seen it you need to read it.

If you haven't read this, you need to. Humor mixed with philosophy.
Very, very funny book. Even better than tha movie. I would highly recommend it.
"Bein a idiot is no box of chocolates," but"at least I ain't led no hum-drum life,"says Forrest Gump, the lovable, suprisingly savvy hero of this wonderful comic novel. When the University of Alabama's football team drafts Forrest and makes him a star, that's only the beginning! He flunks out-and goes on to be a Vietnam war hero, a world-class ping-pong player, a wrestler, and a business tycoon. He compares battle scars with Lyndon Johnson, discovers the truth andbout Richard Nixon, and suffers the ups and downs of true love. Now, Forrest Gump is telling all-in a madcap, screwball romp trough three decades of the American landscape. It's Gump's amazing travels..and you've got to read them to believe them.
From the back of the book
Better than the movie - book is well written and funny.
The world will never be the same once you've seen it through the eyes of Forrest Gump.
"Bein' an idiot is no box of chocolates." But this fun book, read by the author, is almost as good as chocolate.
almost NO similarity to the movie!
the movie was more a greek tragedy. this book is a greek comedy
I think this is a really good book and I loved the movie too.
I personally didn't like the book nearly as much as the movie. There were stories in here that weren't explored in the movie and just seem so far "out-there" it's hard to keep going.... for me! Forrest is an Astronaut, he lives with Jenny for quite some time - he's a wrestler! It's an interesting deviation, but not quite my style!
Not quite like the movie, but it's fun to read
Such a great story and so much more detail than the movie! If you liked the movie, then you will LOVE the book!
Do yourslef a favor and read Forrest Gump. It may be the funniest Novel I have ever read.
Exact copy of the movie. Laugh out loud reading.
LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES......................................

This book does have a small tear in the upper right corner & the bottom right corner does have a triangular cut. Other than that it is in perfect condition.
