"Los Angeles Times Part Candide, part Huck Finn and a whole lot of Andy Griffith, [Gump] makes his case in a voice all his own."
"George Plimpton A wacky and funny nuthouse of a book."
"New Woman Broad satire with serious resonances...Gump's adventures are both hilarious and bawdy....This picaresque tale will set you guffawing."
"Pittsburgh Press A Huckleberry Finntype odyssey, complete with the humor-tempered irony and insight of Mark Twain. A rollicking satire, milking laughs from our sacred cows...As much fun as a box of chocolates, but far less fattening."
"Ocala Star-Banner A most gentle spirit, Forrest Gump should enter the annals of fiction as a great American hero."
"Anniston Star Zany, tongue-in-cheek, affectionate and wise."
"Tom McGuane A delectable and unsparing comic treat."
