Winston GROOM (1994) Forrest Gump, Penguin Readers (2008), A2, 1700 Headwords
By Lucía Marín, 1º Bachillerato B, EFL
The book is about Forrest Gump. He tells his life while he is sitting, waiting for the bus. He is a little mentally retarded. He comes from Greenbow, Alabama. He met Jenny in his first day of class and since that moment they were good friends. Forrest fell in love with Jenny but she was always with other boys. Jenny had a son by Forrest, but he didn't know anything about his son until the end of the book.
My favourite part is the end when he is reunited with Jenny and he meets his son, and then ...
I recommend the book to all age groups because it is an interesting story.
