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.

I started this book with high expectations but ended up disappointed after finding out that the book was quite boring. It was close to being one of the most boring books I have ever read. It's not something I personally would recommend to other readers.

This book was enjoyed by my grandson, age 9. He liked that it moved along quickly, and that it explained ways of surviving in the wilderness. He didn't like the lack of realism regarding what supposedly happened to the pilot's body, nor all the time Brian spent mulling over his parents' relationship.

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.
