    I loved the movie Don t get me wrong, the film adaption is one of my favorite movies of all time that s precisely why I wanted to give the book a try, because the book s always better than the movie, right Well, this was the exception Because Forrest Gump is manipulative, outrageous, poorly characterized, and awkwardly wr

    Rarely do I go to a movie and say that the movie was definitely better than the book, but this was one time that was true I really liked the movie with the great soundtrack setting the scenes throughout the 60 s and 70 s, and of course, Tom Hanks played a GREAT Forrest I did enjoy how the book portrayed Forrest landing in evenin
