There are several books that I didn't enjoy to read them or I thought that they could be better, etc However to reach the level of hating the book that's something that it's not usual for me.
So, you're being warned!
Run, reader, run! Since my hate for the book is due my expectations about it, after watching the film "adaptation". I used quoting marks on the word adaptation, since book and film couldn't be more different!
Actually, I believe that Robert Zemeckis, director of the movie, could film it with other title and there wouldn't any court able to say that he used the book without permit. Too much of devil's advocate! Returning to hate mode!
You have to understand that I love the movie. It's a fantastic film with such lovely characters that you care about them. However, my experience with the book reached the realms of traumatic and awful repulsion. When you really liked a novel, it's quite easy to make a review about it without using any spoiler, but I think that when you didn't like the book, it's quite complicated to avoid to point out why you didn't like the book.
Especially if I hate the book as much as I do. So the following text contains spoilers comparing the film with the book They then became the best of friends. By the time Forrest is sixteen years old, he is 6' 6" 1. Miss Henderson, with whom Forrest is infatuated, gives him reading lessons.

There comes a point where Forrest finds a Vietnamese man during his time in Vietnam and figured out that he could breed shrimp in a simple pond or lagoon. All he needs to do is gather shrimp and put in a mass of water, throw feed into a pond and let nature go its course.
He eventually ends up with a shrimp business that eventually ends up with a name honoring Bubba.
He gives away the company to Bubba's family and workers and decides to go his own way, frustrated with the complications it added to his once simple life. At the end of the book, Forrest ends up with Dan and a male orangutan named "Sue" living life by being a one man band, begging for change, while sleeping on a green bench.
The novel was adapted into a feature-length film by Paramount Pictures in Before being made into an Academy Award winning movie, the novel sold an estimated 30, copies. The movie does not mention Forrest's being an idiot savant , and sanitizes his sex life and the character's profanity.
According to the author, the movie "took some of the rough edges off" Forrest, whom he envisioned being played by John Goodman. The movie takes great advantage of special effects to have the characters interact with real people from history.
It omits his time with NASA and some of his other careers, as well as his time with the cannibals and the ape named Sue.However to reach the level of hating the book that's something that it's not usual for me.
