Gump & Co. | [Winston Groom]

Gump & Co.

The lovable man for all ages, who captured America's heart in the #1 best-selling novel Forrest Gump and in the blockbuster film, returns in the long-awaited sequel to the book hailed by Larry King as "the funniest novel I have ever read." A little older, and wiser in his own unique way, he is still running through the kaleidoscopic events of our times -- and straight into the age of greed and instant gratification known as the 1980s.

Publisher's Summary

The Gump phenomenon continues!

Forrest Gump is back!

The lovable man for all ages, who captured America's heart in the #1 best-selling novel Forrest Gump and in the blockbuster film, returns in the long-awaited sequel to the book hailed by Larry King as "the funniest novel I have ever read." A little older, and wiser in his own unique way, he is still running through the kaleidoscopic events of our times -- and straight into the age of greed and instant gratification known as the 1980s.

When Gump & Co. begins, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has gone bust and Forrest is flat broke, sweeping floors in a New Orleans strip joint and trying to raise his son, little Forrest, who needs his father more than ever. As always in Forrest's easy-come-easy-go life, a change in the weather is never far off...and when the opportunity to play championship football comes his way once more, Forrest is back in the limelight and in the money.

Forrest's remarkable, touching, and utterly comic odyssey has just begun: in store for him is his own dubious recipe for adding life to New Coke; an encounter with Ollie North; and a chance yet again to unwittingly twist the nose of history.

The Rollicking Sequel to the # 1 New York Times Bestseller Forrest Gump.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Winston Groom and/or Will Patton?

    Don't think so.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Screwtape Letters


    What three words best describe Will Patton’s performance?

    It was OK.


    What character would you cut from Gump & Co.?

    The New Coke inventor.


    Any additional comments?

    If you've read the original book you know it is considerably different than the movie. It almost seemed as if this follow up was written to capitalize on the success of the movie.It was just tossed together with little flow to any kind of story line. Gump is almost a cross between the original book character (really a bit of a jerk) and the movie character (an unassuming good guy). Seemed like the author couldn't decide if he wanted him to continue as the book character or the movie character. Disappointing.

    "A Sad Disappointment"

    Words cannot describe how bad this book was. If you are thinking it will be a continuation of the movie Forrest Gump, your in for a major let down. Do yourself a favor, save your money and buy a book worth listening to.

    "Unbelevable Waist of Time"
    What disappointed you about Gump & Co.?

    This story was completly unbelevable. It doeas not line up with the movie so if you plan on waisting yor time with this book you should read Forest Gump first. Both books do not line up with the movie and whoever was the screenwriter for the movie is genius!
