Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single-engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but a tattered Windbreaker and the hatchet his mother gave him as a present -- and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart since his parent's divorce. But now Brian has no time for anger, self pity, or despair -- it will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.

I didn't really like Hatchet as it was a very repetitive book.
Good Points
Some of the things that I enjoyed while reading this book were the use of adjectives and imagery. I also enjoyed the plot as it was very interesting.

I personally didn't like this book as it was only from his point of view, I think that it could have had more perspectives.
Good Points
Hatchet is a adventure novel, written with full of adjectives and pictures the scenery that Brian is in.

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.
