ugh. terrible! let's see, I'll make a note of all the things that happened in the 1980s. and I'll figure out a way to make sure that Forest Gump is involved, if not responsible for each and every one of them. Then we'll call him an idiot over and over and this should make people laugh.
The Best-Selling Sequel to "Forrest Gump." Everybody's favorite character plays pro ball, sells phony encyclopedias, attempts hog farming, encounters Ollie North, and attempts to raise his son, changing history as he goes.
Chris K. reviewed Gump and Co. (Forrest Gump, Bk 2) on
Everything that was good about Forrest Gump, the first book, is missing in this one. Forrest gets continually dumped upon instead of finding himself in the right place at the right time; he never learns anything; and instead of being a bit player in some major events in history, he suddenly becomes the catalyst. It goes far beyond the realm of curious disbelief and into the realm of fantasy, and it doesn't work. Not for this character. A total letdown.
