Hatchet is about a 13 year old boy named Brian. He is flying to visit his father after his parents divorced and the pilot has a heart attack and they crash. Brian must learn how to survive in the wilderness alone with nothing but the hatchet his mom gave him as a kind of novelty gift. It is interesting to see how Brian matures in this book as he faces tough obstacles and deals with major let-downs. There is not much more I can say about this book, it was a bit slow and boring at times, and I thought it could have done without the whole secret aspect - the big secret he was living with - as it didn't really have any effect on the story, in my opinion. This is a good book for teens and is written very well.
This story is about a boy named Brian who survived in a plane crash.In the story, he is deserted with only a hatchet. He eats berrys, fish,and learns how to make sparks. If you like survival get this movie!!!! Happy reading!
Alright, Hatchet, Hatchet, Hatchet, you got to love Hatchet. OK the story starts out he's in an airplane oh no what is going to happen next? OK, I will tell you one detail he has to survive by himself, that's right all by himself no pilot! Will he survive? You will have to read to find ou!
I recommend this book to everyone! It's a great reader! You don't want to put the book down! Read other books about Gary Paulsen, you will enjoy them! Read Hatchet!
Another old time childhood favorite. Hatchet is a "survival manual" to those who don't wish to venture out in the woods. This book is filled with adventure and the answer to how one might survive in the wilderness. Gary Paulsen has a wonderful way with words and I would gladly and highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a marvelous real life adventure.
I learned early on that the books required to read in school are not so bad. This was one of the first books I read for a class in middle school, and I loved it! It really is a book for everyone, because anyone can relate to the survival aspect of Hatchet. No matter the circumstance, we learn to survive and adapt to our surroundings.
This is the best book about surviving that I have read, it's on my top 5 list. My favorite part was him trying to survive, and my least favorite part was when and how he got rescued (very far-fetched). The only reason plat is at 4/5 is how he got rescued, I don't want to give away anymore though. Conclusion: great if ou like books about surviving/living off the land.
in this book it show courage excitment and surivel.where our character is stranded in the canadian wilderness and must learn to survied and fend for himselves and heal hinself after his parent deviorce.
I love this book. I had to read it for class, but it was the opposite of boring.
This book combines everything that I am scared of into less that 300 pages! Death, plane crashes, being alone, and mad animals! You read as Brian's plane crashes in the Northern wilderness and he has to fight for survival! Will he live? Die? Be rescued?
Brian is riding in a plane when the pilot has a heart attack. Brian flys the plane until he sees a lake; then he tries to land the plane. He ends up in the lake and swims up to shore. He finds a place for a shelter and makes one after he discovers he still has his hatchet. He finds berries to eat and finally perfected his fishing arrow. Later there is a tornado and part of the plane is sticking out of the water. He makes a raft and gets out to the plane, and after several tries he gets the emergancy kit. He gets an emergancy transmitter and turns it on, but nothing happens. He leaves it on and a passing plane gets it.The plane comes and rescues him.
I think if someone read this book and wanted to read more like it they should read Big Red, Irish Red, and Where the Red Fern Grows.
I loved this book because the autor clearly explains things an events so they can be easily understood. I liked how the author, Gary Paulson, really showed Brians personallity.
If you like wilderness books I reccomend this book for you.
