A rare case where the movie is by far better than the book it's based on.
The book should have stopped around where the movie stops, but it doesn't, it keeps going, it gets weirder in a worse way.

The follow up to Forrest Gump, that continues the remarkable unbelievable story. Pretty much like Forrest Gump story wise, meeting the likes of Oliver North, Jim Baker and Michael Milden just to name a few. Once again this book like the previous one and is NOTHING like the popular movie. There is no cute moments like the movie.

This book is NOTHING like the movie. So if you are going to read this book hoping to gleam some insight into the movie characters you will be disappointed.

I am rating this book 3.5 stars because the book is good, story interesting, but except for the characters and some stories the book and movie are totally different.

Cannot remember where I got this book from, but it was already on my shelf when I began my research project on Guadalcanal logistics for the GCMH program at the NWC. Was enjoyable to read and understand the larger issues going on throughout that year that included the first offensive in the Pacific. Became a helpful secondary source for my project.
