Unabridged audiobook on eight compact discs. Forrest Gump is the publishing phenomenon that surged to #1 on the New York Times best-seller list and stayed there for weeks. Satirical and hilarious, this book also inspired the motion picture that won six Academy Awards® and became one of the highest-grossing films of all time. Slow-witted, warm-hearted Forrest Gump is America's most lovable folk hero. From his college days as a star running back for the University of Alabama, Forrest's remarkable adventures carry him through three decades of American life. Vietnam war hero, world-class ping-pong player, and astronaut, Forrest crosses paths with some of the most famous -- and infamous -- people of the 20th century. He compares battle scars with Lyndon Johnson, saves Chairman Mao from drowning, and carries a naked Raquel Welch down Rodeo Drive. If you've only seen the movie, you're in for a treat when you hear the original bawdy, madcap adventures of Forrest.
