5.0 out of 5 stars Highly thrilling and mind grabbing., 27 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Hatchet (Piper) (Paperback)
The best book I have read this year. Hatchet is emotional, exciting and, best of all, realistic.
I found Brian's survival skills very educational e.g making the shelter, lighting the fire, getting food and water but most of all, never giving up.
While reading this book I did not want to put it down. It really keeps you on the edge of your seat and I can't wait to read "Hatchet the Return".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both my son's (and me) enjoyed this book. Don't want to spoil the story too much but it's gripping, most kids will enjoy this! Brian is a city boy. Not used to being alone. Not used to living rough. Until his plane crash-lands in the Canadian wilderness. All he is left with is a hatchet.

1.0 out of 5 stars A VERY Boring Book, 17 July 2010
A Kid's Review
A VERY Boring Book with too much descriptive language, VERY repeditive & VERY long chapters. I was fed up after chapter 2 & would not recommend buying. Probably the worst book I've read for long time.

This book flat-out stinks. It reads as if it were dashed off during the commercials in an afternoon of TV watching.
