This is a very good book with excellent grammar. The scenes are brought to life by the excellent use of similes and metaphores. The things that happen are realistc and the book reads easly. It has many good themes and Brian , the main character, learns about survival the hard way when he is involved in plane crash in the Canadain Backwoods.
In the beginning, the repetition of speech such as divorce,divorce was not too good but otherwise good descriptive chapters.Towards the end of the book the story became enjoyable.The characters,such as Brian,the pilot,Brians mom and her boyfriend makes you feel what happens in real day life.All-round the book was extremely enjoyed.
This was a great moving novel about a boy who crashes in the low down Canadian Moutains and has to try to survive by him self in the wilderness with only his hatchet. This was a great novel.The book contains some of natures animals and weather.The boy survives for about one year before being rescued.
I FOUND THAT HATCHET WAS NOT ONLY AN EXTREMELY ENTERTAINING BOOK, BUT ALSO RATHER ENLIGHTENING ALONG THE WAY. PAULSEN'S TRUE COLOURS REALLY COME OUT TO SHINE IN THIS ONE WITH A STORY ABOUT A JOURNEY, AND A BATTLE BETWEEN A BOY AND THE WORLD. A MUST READ!
We use this book as an opener to our sixth grade Reading class. The students love it... It is almost impossible to get them to stop reading when the period is over. Please help me find the title of the video. It is not the same title? Thanks..
I love the courage of this kid to keep himself alive after his plane crashed with only a hatchet. I envy him for his bravery. The ending is magical and much wanted. This would encourage me to read more of Gary Paulsen's books.
Hatchet is a great story. It is a bout a boy who crashes in the wilderness in Canada all he has to survive is his hatchet what his mom gave him to put on his belt. Read the book and find out how he survives in the wilderness
