Hatchet Gary Paulsen read online review & book description:

Celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Newbery Honor–winning survival novel Hatchet with a pocket-sized edition perfect for travelers to take along on their own adventures. This special anniversary edition includes a new introduction and commentary by author Gary Paulsen, pen-and-ink illustrations by Drew Willis, and a water resistant cover. Hatchet has also been nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, haunted by his secret knowledge of his mother’s infidelity, is traveling by single-engine plane to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When the plane crashes, killing the pilot, the sole survivor is Brian. He is alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother had given him as a present.

At first consumed by despair and self-pity, Brian slowly learns survival skills—how to make a shelter for himself, how to hunt and fish and forage for food, how to make a fire—and even finds the courage to start over from scratch when a tornado ravages his campsite. When Brian is finally rescued after fifty-four days in the wild, he emerges from his ordeal with new patience and maturity, and a greater understanding of himself and his parents.

  • What?

    How do people think this book wasn’t great. Also ITS A KIDS BOOK that’s why it’s short. Some of these peeps are dumb.
  • Amazing stories

    By Q-Man19
    The point of a book is to allow our imagination to complete the story in our own unique way. While the base of the story is the same for everyone, everyone views it differently. This series was amazing and full of life. Growing up walking in the woods and plains by myself I can imagine my exit this book is vastly different then someone who grew up in a city. Now that a live in a city I can definitely see such. All in all amazing story.

    By Colton Steward
    I would love to read this book because my dad had read the whole entire book and loved it and he says that that is the best book that he has ever read in his life and he doesn’t like to read that much so this book has to be that good.
  • It’s amazing

    There is some people that say this book is boring. I think those people have absolutely no sense about books. It is a very exciting thrill ride with good vocab and it teaches you things about life lessons.
  • Such a good book

  • Love it

    By slade bohannan
    Read this book in fifth grade paper back, loved it , A story about survival of the fittest I guess he does encountered a lot of things I’m not going to spoil.
  • Boring

    By ShreddedCorpse
    The story progresses way too fast, nothing builds up and Brian’s issues are often rarely explored in Depth because the plot is moving so fast. The book needed to be longer, 180 pages isn’t enough to tell a survival story and the pacing shows.
  • Good reas

    By LBJ2440
    You could say it gets slow in the middle but still entertaining to read.
