Excellent book! The storyline really gets you thinking about how you would handle the situation, what you would do. I liked Brian and enjoyed all of the subsequent books.

Its a book about the about the adventures of a boy surviving in the wild after a trip goes horribly awry. This intriguing little book was filled with insight, and details that made it feel more realistic. It was fun to read, and the lessons that the protagonist learns make it a book worth reading.

I have read a lot of books some good and some bad, but this book was by far the worst book i have ever read. Brian just wasn't a logical person and i didn't enjoy his personality and the way that things happened in the book. It also had a terrible ending. I was really looking forward to reading this book because the description sounded so good but in the end i became really disappointed with it.

I started reading this book and didn't think much of it, but when I was about a third way through it, I was amazed! After I finished it I was sad :(
So I decided to read the next of the series; The River, and Brian's Winter. Now they are both almost done :(! Gary Paulsen writes fabulous books.

The book that I Have just finished is called, “The Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen a realistic-fiction book. In the book the protagonist is, Brian Robeson a fourteen year old teenager. The setting which most took place was the forest of Northern Canada. Brian is trying to go to Canada by an airplane to see his father during the summer; however, the pilot had a heart attack and died the plane; however, went out of control and Brian and the pilot fell down into a lake in the Northern Canada forest. The protagonist is the obstacles is the things in the forest that is trying to get him dead, for an example: the mosquitoes are keep on biting him and lead poison into his body which could lead him to death. There is a second part to the book which is called, “The River” also by Gary Paulsen and a realistic-fiction book.
