"Gump & Co." is another thoroughly entertaining book. There is one note though, this book is not a continuation of the book "Forrest Gump", it was written after the movie's success and it actually continues the storyline from the movie, not the original novel.

If you liked the movie read "Gump and Co." after watching the movie. If you liked both the movie and "Gump and Co." then read "Forrest Gump" and view it as just an alternative life for the character Forrest Gump.
