Title: Hatchet Author: Gary Paulsen Genre Realistic Fiction
The book Hatchet is set in a plane (Flight 406), and deals with the main character of the story, Brian Robinson. Brian was on a plane (Flight 406), to go see his father. During the flight the pilot all of a sudden had a heart attack. The pilot eventually died, leaving Brian alone in the plane. Brian didn't know what to do do. He used a radio to contact someone but he got no connection. The plane crashes in the woods and brian survives! His only survival tool is a hatchet that he brought with him to the plane. Brian's starts a life in the woods he hunts for food, connects with animals, and builds a shelter. Days past and Brian and his parents find each other. He said during the flight in the plane his parents were going to get a divorce but they looked so happy to see him it looked like they weren't going to divorce. My favorite character is Brian because he was strong and brave for living in the woods for a while.
I could relate to Brian's situation in the plane. The reason why is because one day my mom slipped and fell and hurt her self bad. I didn't know what to do if to calls 911 call my dad, or call the neighbors, so i was in a situation like that. I did feel the same way as Brian, scared. When a lady came up to our house at night she said "can i come in someone is after me". I was really scared I was like "what if he had a gun mom". I was really scared like Brian when he was inside the plane when it was falling.
I really liked this book because it was suspenseful. When you see the cover "Hatchet" you might think it's a bad book but It's actually very interesting, suspenseful, and adventurous. I like the part when Brian thought to contact a radio it was very smart of him although, it didn't work. I didn't like how he kept on thinking about his parents getting a divorce. If i were to change any part is to change Brian thinking about his parents getting in a divorce it would have been better without him thinking about it. Thats what i would change.
I recommend this book a lot It's a 5/5 book its very suspenseful. I would recommend this to someone who likes suspense and adventure. I liked the book Hatchet a lot one of my favorite books. I consider it a 5/5.
