Hatchet: Review
Can you imagine crashing a plane in the middle of the canadian wilderness, with only scraps of metal from the plane and a hatchet to keep you alive? Well, this is what happened to Brian Robenson, but did he survive the brutal wild? This action packed book won't disappoint you, it's filled with cliffhangors, description of the character's feelings and most of all suspense. Page by Page this excellent adventure novel will continue to get better and you will gain excitement, gauranteed. The main reason I loved this novel was because it's short and sweet. Gary Paulsen does an excellent job by packing action into a short story, however it is well balanced between action and survival. Gary Paulsen's books are very addicting, so if your up for it I dare you to take a peek into it, because once you do you will be hooked.

Imagine, your parents were divorced and you got put on a plane to stay with your father over the summer. While on your way, the pilot has a heart attack and the plane crashes near by an island. The main character, Brian is trying to survive on a deserted island with out any supplies,except for a hatchet that was given by his mother. As he is on the island he figures out many strategies to get the most important things to survive, food, water, and shelter. He also goes threw many challenges with his surroundings of nature. I loved this book, Hatchet because Gary Paulsen made it seem so real. He also made it very suspenseful and I wanted to keep reading it. I could not put this book down because of how well it was written. This book was full of inspiration, and has a lot of adventure. Will Brian survive on this vicious island or will he face death?
