  • Forrest Gump is a 1986 novel by Winston Groom. The title character retells adventures ranging

  • from shrimp boating and ping pong championships, to thinking about his childhood love, as he

  • bumbles his way through American history, with everything from the Vietnam War to college

  • football becoming part of the story. Throughout his life, Gump views the world

  • simply and truthfully. He really doesn't know what he wants to do in life. Despite his low

  • IQ, Gump is full of wisdom. According to him, he "can think things pretty good", but when

  • he tries "sayin or writin them, it kinda come out like Jello". His mathematical abilities,

  • as an idiot savant, and feats of strength lead him into all kinds of amazing adventures.

  • Plot Forrest Gump, named after General Nathan Bedford

  • Forrest, narrates the story of his life. The author uses misspellings and grammatical errors

  • to indicate his Southern accent, education, and cognitive disabilities. While living in

  • Mobile, Alabama, Forrest meets Jenny Curran in first grade and walks her home.

  • By the time Forrest is sixteen years old, he is 6’ 6”, 242 pounds, and plays high

  • school football. Miss Henderson, whom Forrest is infatuated with, gives him reading lessons.

  • He reads Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and two other books that he doesn't

  • remember. While he enjoys the books, he doesn't do well on tests.

  • He gains popularity as a football player, joining the All State team. When Forrest is

  • called to the principal's office, he meets Bear Bryant, who asks if he'd considered playing

  • college football. After high school, Forrest takes a test at a local army recruitment center,

  • and is told he is "Temporarily Deferred." Forrest and Jenny meet again in college. They

  • go to see Bonnie and Clyde, and play together in a folk music band at the Student Union,

  • covering songs by Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, and Peter, Paul and Mary.

  • When he and Jenny get together, "we done all sorts of things that... I never even dreamt

  • of in my wildest imagination... We rolled all over the livin room an into the kitchen...

  • When we is finally finished, Jenny jus lie there a while, an then she look at me an say,

  • 'Goddam Forrest, where have you been all my life?'"

  • Forrest flunks out of the University of Alabama after one semester. He and his friend Bubba

  • join the Army. Bubba dies in the Vietnam War. He meets Lieutenant Dan, who has lost his

  • legs, in the infirmary. He also plays in a Ping-Pong championship

  • in China, and goes on a mission for NASA with a female astronaut and an ape named Sue. After

  • their re-entry, they are captured and held by cannibals for four years. Forrest also

  • has brief careers as a chess champion, a stunt man with a naked Raquel Welch in Hollywood,

  • and as a professional wrestler called "The Dunce".

  • At the end of the book, Forrest honors Bubba's memory by starting a shrimp business.

  • Film adaptation

  • The novel was adapted into a feature-length film by Paramount Pictures in 1994.

  • Before being made into an Academy Award winning movie, the novel sold an estimated 30,000

  • copies. The movie doesn't mention Forrest's being

  • an idiot savant, and sanitizes his sex life and the character's profanity. According to

  • the author, the movie "took some of the rough edges off" Forrest, whom he envisioned being

  • played by John Goodman. The movie takes great advantage of special

  • effects to have the characters interact with real people from history. It omits his time

  • with NASA and some of his other careers, as well as his time with the cannibals and the

  • ape named Sue. References
