            Hatchet is the most exciting and thrilling book Ive ever read. It is about a boy who is thirteen and named Brian Robeson. He is going to visit his dad but his plane crashes, but before he got on the plane, his mom gave him a hatchet as a present. Later on it is his most pries position, it is what helps him with hunting and building. He is all alone out somewhere out in the wilderness. He has to survive animal attacks, starvation, and storms, hoping someone will rescue him.


The writer, Gary Paulsen, got his ideas from when he was a child he was fascinated by nature. My favorite line in the book is, he turned back to his campsite and looked to the wreckage. He had a lot to do, rebuild the shelter, get a new fire going find some food or get ready to find some food, make weapons-and he had to work slowly because his ribs hurt. It is based on realistic fiction, and is a really good book. I would recommend this book to every one nine and older. Some other books written by Gary Paulsen are Brains Winter, Brains Hunt, Dancing Carl, Dogsong, Sentries, and Tracker. Hatchet has also won the Newbery Honor Book Award. My brother and dad both read it and said it was one of the best books they have ever read, they didnt want to put it down and I am almost sure you wont either.


            I think every one should read this book, it is adventurous and mysterious. I liked it very muck and I think you will to.

I think hatchet was awesome!!!!!!!!!! It showed survival skills that I didn't even know.          I guess a boy stuck on an island is the best subject  i've ever read about.                    I like all gary paulsen books but this one is my favorite!!!!!!!!!!                 I recommend this book to all readers looking for excitement!

This is a book that when you start you can't stop. A kid decides to fly and see his dad. Something happens to the pilot and the plane crashes. Brain is out in the woods for 2 months. He has to surive on his own.

I like this book because I could not put it down. I just makes you want to read more. The author does a great job of decribing things. You feel like you are right in the woods with Brain as he tries to surive.

An unuseful present from his mom turns out to be very useful. Hatchet is a book of survival, strength, and bravery. I loved this book! It was very interesting to see what Brian would do next in order to survive. It was just one surprise after another. I really enjoyed reading this book. Brian's adventure turns from scary to not all that bad. The book Brian is a great book.

Hatchet is a great story of survival. The main character Brain is alone and stranded in the woods and doesn't know where he is. After surviving a plane crash Brian must fend for himself in the woods. He must learn to make and sustain a fire as well as learning how to capture, hunt and protect himself from animals. This will not be easy when Brian must go through problems such as trying to make weapons and getting through sickness. He also learns to make shelter. I reccomend this as a great survival book.

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.

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?
