Forrest Gump, abrégé




0 vote


The book is written in the first person; the reader feels that someone is telling them his life story. It narrates the adventures of Forrest Gump, an ‘idiot savant’. Forrest has a low IQ (intelligence), but is brilliant in certain areas, for example, mathematics. At school, children laugh at him.
Only pretty Jenny Curran is kind to him. Then it is discovered that the boy is brilliant at running and football. As a result, he gets into university. By now it’s the late sixties. Forrest is drafted into the army and goes to fight
in Vietnam. He leaves Vietnam a hero and is awarded a medal by President Nixon.
This is only the beginning of many strange adventures.
