i totally agree with you carmen. this was and still is a VERY BORING book. we had to read it for my reading class in school and i totally hated it. practically everyone else said they loved it but i didnt. it bored me to death. its about a guy whose parents are divoreced so get gets one a "one engine" plane with only "one" pilot and he is the "only" passenger. then the pilot gets a hearth-attck and the plane crashes. THE END. then it talks about how he survives all caouse of the hatchet his mom gave in before he left. wow, what a great book. i feel so sorry for brain.(that's the kid's name by the way)the only thing that i like about this book was that it was based on a real life event that happened to the author gary paulson. the book was basically about survivile skills and if i wanted to read about survivile skills i'd read the island series which is more interesting that hatchet by the way.(i read the first book)
Okay...They made me read it in school, so that kinda tells you that it is more of a boring book than a thrilling adventure...no offense to you teachers out there, but, what were you thinking!!!???
Read it if you want, but I don't recomend it.
this has got to be the most boring book ever. really I never got past page 40 or somwhere close to that effect. It seemed pointless and for me I read it when I was sleepy to really put me in the sleep zone.
