.Re: Hatchet
I've read the book and I don't know if I could handle what Brian went threw, but I understand the psychological change he experienced.

Re: Hatchet
I don't know how he's going to survive. Maybe he'll meet somebody and get some help. Probably be a grown-up.

From Hal: On "Hatchet"
I don't know why no one has left a comment yet! Hatchet is such a GREAT book! Three cheers to Gary Paulson for creating such a wonder! Now to answer the question. I'm not going to spoil the book to those who haven't read it. So I'll just say what my first instinct was when I was reading the book. So he has a hatchet. He has wood. Wood+hatchet=FIRE!!! Will fire be enough to attract the planes? Will someone see Brian's S.O.S before it's to late? Read to find out!

Re: Hatchet
This book tells of a young boy who gets stranded in an unknown wildlife island and gets mixed up in very real events suchas having to eat turtle eggs, making shelter, eating berries, and etc. This book is awesome for anyone who loves adventure, nature, and suspense!
