Hatchet :: essays research papers
inwardly reading the first few pages of Hatchet, I knew I was going to love the book. Hatchet was a story about bra actually, courage, and strength. I enjoyed reading this big novel by Gary Paulsen.The story begins when Brian, a thirteen-year-old boy, is travel on an air sheet of paper. Brian is from the city, and is traveling to Canada to visit his Father. The setting is in the Canadian wilderness and is most significant because Brians adventure would have been impossible in a city. Brian was very upset about his parents separation, hardly was excited to be visiting his father. as yet The Secret, as Brian refers to it, is always in the back of his mind. Brian has seen his set out with another man. He wants desperately to tell his father, but knows his father would be crushed. I find that this home is something that could happen in real life. Brian is totally distraught. If I were in his place, I would be also. But instead of worrying about verbalise my father, I think I would be worrying about confronting my mother with the situation. I would feel I needed to stop the affair before my father did find out.Brians trip is very unexpectedly interrupted, when the planes pilot has a heart attack. Brian tries to continue the flight, with help from workforce over the radio. Unfortunately, the radio dies, and the plane runs out of gas. I think this deduct of the story, is very unrealistic. If the plane were supposed to make it all the way to the destination, wherefore would it suddenly run out of gas? Also, why would the radios suddenly become broken? I realize this was the whole point of the novel but it doesnt seem realistic.Brian then spends exactly Fifty-four days by an L-shaped lake. He faces many conflicts. He is put in a situation like the Survivor television show. He needs to find a way to survive, unlike on the show, by himself. He needed protective cover from the weather, so he built shelter. He was hungry, so he track down for food. He disc overed how to catch fish, rabbit, and discovered bushes of nuts. He also had a bad encounter with Poison berries, as he called them, which made his stand up sick. Brian also had encounters with wild animals, such as, a porcupine, and a moose. Brian needed warmth, so he made fire, without any matches.
