A Children’s classic
Review by Marie Hornsby
Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

Hatchet is a brilliant book about a boy called Brian Robeson.
Alone he survives a plane crash. Without much hope, this city boy tries unbelievably hard for survival; to survive he has to adapt to an estranged, hostile world. He kicks back everything that is thrown at him in an unexpected, logic way.
My favourite bit of the story was when the bear comes; because it made Brian realise that just because things sometimes look scary they can be completely harmless. I also like the way Gary Paulsen described when Brian couldn’t breathe under water, it was very clever.
I didn’t like the repetitive words like ‘the secret’ appearing in every chapter; also I found the book quite slow in parts.
If I could change anything about the book I would have changed the ending because it was very predictable; I would have preferred more of a twist.
I highly recommend this book to people under 15 years of age. It’s a great book and you will find it hard to put down!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

This book is a great read because it got heaps of action and you find out a lot of things on survival that you never thought of before. There are some funny parts to the book as well and it keeps you guessing what will happen next. The rest of the series is just as good as well and doesn't get boring.
