The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has gone bust and Forrest is flat broke, sweeping floors in a New Orleans strip joint when Gump & Co. begins. 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 ...

Overview

Forrest Gump is back! A little older, and wiser in his 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. The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has gone bust and Forrest is flat broke, sweeping floors in a New Orleans strip joint when Gump & Co. begins. 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. But fate is a fickle lady, and he's soon out on the road selling phony encyclopedias and trying to raise his son, little Forrest, who needs his father more than ever. Forrest's remarkable, touching, and utterly comic odyssey has just begun: in store for him is an explosive attempt at hog farming; 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.

In his celebrated novel, Forrest Gump, Groom created "a great American hero" (Rima Firrone, Ocala Star-Banner), a lovable man for all ages. Now in a rollicking sequel, Forrest guides readers through the age of instant gratification known as the 1980s, featuring adventures which include a dubious recipe for New Coke, another crack at pro football, and an encounter with Oliver North.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The continuing adventures of You-Know-Who. (July)
Library Journal
An award-winning movie made from an originally disappointing novel (Forrest Gump, LJ 3/1/86) cries out for a sequel: so here it is. Groom gives us the last decade of Gump's life, including the 1995 Academy AwardsR ceremony with the movie sweeping the OscarsR and Gump getting a special award as "The Most Lovable Certified Idiot in America." Along the way he becomes involved in Iran-Contra, insider trading, the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Desert Storm. Tapping into another trend, Groom gives Gump an angel to guide him; Jenny, the love of his life and mother of Little Forrest, lived on in the first Gump novel but died in the movie, so Groom kills her by page 15 and brings her back at opportune times. Little Forrest is along for some of this ride, usually with ideas for successful ventures, including the oyster company of the title. (Once again, shellfish from Louisiana save Gump's financial hide.) As a book, this is a media event, so expect demand, with a movie to follow-and maybe even an oyster cookbook. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/95.]-Michele Leber, Fairfax Cty. P.L., Va.

    'Goddamn Gump!'

    I really like the first book, and this was a nice follow up. For the first 50 or so pages it seems that the book is dull, but picks up considerably in the following chapters. Being a college student i really liked this book because it allowed me to relate to more of the events than in the first book.

    Gump has worn out his welcome

    I didn't care for this book. Instead of being an endearing moron, he's just a moron.

    This book will give you many laughs!

    This book was a bit hard to understand because it didn¿t really go with the original Forrest Gump. Although it didn¿t really follow the first Forrest Gump it was still a great book. It was very funny in many ways. Forest Gump wasn¿t quite as successful in this sequel to Forrest Gump, but I think that¿s what made it so funny. He struggled in trying to get a job and keep it. All he wants to do is to raise his son, little forest as best as possible. One of his jobs that he got that didn¿t last him to long was a job selling phony encyclopedias door to door. During that job he met some very interesting people. The ups and downs of this book are terrific and they keep you turning pages. If I could change something about this book I would make it relate more to the first Forrest Gump. This book was both funny and touching, which is a great combination. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the first Forrest Gump.

    forest who?

    I enjoyed the first book, but found this one to be really dissapointing. It wasn't as funny as the first one. It wasn't the same Forest that we know. I just didn't enjoy this book and neither did others that I know. Obviously, Groom needed to produce a book rather quickly, it wasn't his best work. Second time wasn't the charm for Groom or Forest.

    This Book is Funny, Funny, Funny!!!!

    This is one of the few books that had me laughing out loud. Groom and his eccentric, brilliant, dry humor lends so much color to this short and ejoyable read. A wonderful satire of greed and a significant poke in the ribs for the 1980's. Don't spend your time trying to find a potential Tom Hanks sequel for next summer. Just sit back and enjoy this witty and painfully funny book!

    Gump & Co. is a good book!!!!

    Gump & Co. was written by Winston Groom. It is the sequal to the first Forrest Gump book. Many things have happened to Forrest in this book since the first book. There were many things in this book that were very humerous. In fact everything Forrest did was funny. This made him a well rounded character because of his unconditional love for his son and people in general. There is a lot to be learned in this book about life in general from a very unique and original character. I recomend this book to all people who love life, people, and reading
