"A wonderful read. I laughed out loud time and again." (Atlanta Journal & Constitution)
Great story although different from the movie me read very well by the narrator. Shame there wasn't an unabridged version.
"go read the book!"
The audiobook for "Forrest Gump" is abriged, so many parts in the story are missing, so if you really want to read "Forrest Gump", go read the actual book.
The history is very funny to hear.
Fiction, but how you don't need to be the best to succeed!
The president one.
"Forrest Gump ... Great American Story"
I was able to listen to the story anywhere I went. Fantastic story.Brought back many memories of that period in my life.
Run, Forrest, Run. When Forrest was carrying the football and the crowd got behind him by yelling "Run, Forrest Run".
The Southern voice added a lot. If it was read by a New Yorker or an Englishman, it would not have fit.
Several moments, including the deaths of Jennie and of Bubba.
His discovery that he had a son, Little Forrest.
So many things on the tape, and in the book, that were not in the movie. I am glad I am able to listen to the book as often as I like.
"Abridged & unAbridged, mistake I made"
My fault, now I got the book, but have to buy the unabridged audio version as well, and that I am not going to do. That is waste my money.
