The Gump phenomenon continues!

Forrest Gump is back!

The lovable man for all ages, who captured America's heart in the #1 bestselling 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.

    " GAGAL! Yah.. Winston Groom gagal mengulangi kesuksesan Forrest Gump di sekuelnya ini. Ceritanya hanya lanjutan tanggung dan pengulangan demi pengulangan dari pola novel pertama. Tapi meskipun begitu ceritanya masih lumayan lucu. "

    " The first book was witty, fun to read and they made a movie out of it you either hated or liked. Then came the academy awards where it won a slew of Oscars and not one member of the cast and crew thanked the author for whom this movie would never have ever been created. So, in a fit of pique (or so it's said), he wrote a sequel vowing to make it completely impossible to film. The result was a mess with little to no plot or pacing and to fit as many events and incidents as possible to the point of unreadable. Every other page Gump gets into another adventure or incident, leaving the previous predicament he was in making you wondering what the hell happened. Awful, awful book. "
