    Though the story was compelling very compelling compelling enough that I finished it despite the compelling urge to throw it out the window I don't think I could ever read it again The window oh the shiny window the shiny open window was very tempting This book was so repetitious why so repetitious I know not why this book was so repetitious but the repetitions made me want to pull my hair out My brown hair the brown hair on my head the hair that was brown that was on my head I did listen to it on CD which might have been part of the problem Bruce said he didn't notice it as much when he read the book but when you read it your mind kind of skips over things things that might be repetitious the repetitious things might have been skipped over that make you want to pull your hair out and throw the book out the window

    What I learned from Hatchet1 If you see a man grimacing in pain it could be a heart attack If this man is the pilot of a charter prop plane that you're flying alone in you could be fucked2 If you eat mysterious berries they just might give you severe diarrhea And having just been marooned in a plane crash you could lack the proper facilities to expel the diarrhea within So you could end up shitting your brains out in a cave Since the tender age of 9 when I glanced upon the pages of this book I have had a fear in regards to shitting in the wild Fuck you Gary Paulsen

    I have to be honest At first I was having a serious 'really?' moment as I started listening The 'really?' was because this is a three time Newberry Award winner and I thought the prose was way too repetitive The same word would be repeated three times The same sentences twice I was steeling myself to keep listening and hope it got better It did By the end of this novel I totally realized why it is a Newberry Award winnerHatchet is a story of survival The protagonist is a thirteen year old city boy who ends up stranded in the Canadian wilderness when the pilot of the small plane he's flying in has a heart attack and dies I have to tell you I am very impressed with this kid I think I would have freaked like nobody's business He does freak out at first and I don't blame him but ultimately shows a fortitude that inspires awe in this reader He goes from a scared helpless boy to a survivor The Brian that was has to be broken down and reassembled into a Brian that can survive his new reality He learns how to meet his needs in the harsh wilderness and he comes out of it forever changed I love reading bookswatching tv shows and movies about surviving I don't know why really I don't even go camping or hiking although I love the outdoors I think it's because I love the idea of a person being resourceful and pitting their skills and mentality against the unprejudiced often unsympathetic wild Not conuering it but learning to live in harmony becoming a part of a vast ecosystem in a way that we can't do stuck in our comfortable city and surburban environs another entity in the web of life I would definitely recommend this book if you are of a similar mind I liked that Brian doesn't get it too easy Not at all He has to learn from his mistakes and take the advantages that providence sends his way He learns to keep food in his belly to make a secure shelter and to appreciate and anticipate the dangers of his environment And in the process he finds peace He looks inside and finds his true self That's what solitude and a oneness with nature will bring I have always felt my most at peace in two places in a spirit filled church or by myself and with my heart open in prayer; and outside surrounded by nature So I really appreciated this aspect of the book Brian starts out a boy who is emotionally lost at sea when his father and mother divorce weighted down with the knowledge of his mother's infidelity; and finds that what seemed like tragedy and the end of his world will not conuer him If he can survive the harsh elements of nature all by himself he can live with his family's fragmentation and live to see the next day and the days after that I think this book is a metaphor for life Life is harsh and we have to grow and change to survive it We can't give up descend into pity and expect to be saved We have to be strong and fight to save ourselves whether it's physically mentally or emotionallyAlthough this book had a very shaky start I do have to agree that this is a winner And I tell you what this young man had a lot of lessons to teach me lessons he learns the hard way That's the power of a good fiction novel for me

    Some books imprint themselves on your mind and stay with you You can remember vividly where you were when you first read them Hatchet is one of those books for me I remember being in Mrs Alison’s sixth grade class and this book was raging though the male half of my class like a wildfire Even boys who usually hated reading couldn’t put it down Obviously as the class’s self proclaimed ueen of the bookworms I wanted to know what all the fuss was about So when a copy finally made it back to the book cubbies that lined the back of the classroom I nabbed it And I totally saw what the fuss was aboutSurvival stories have been popular for centuries Robinson Crusoe Kidnapped The Swiss Family Robinson; even The Odyssey had survival aspects So what was so special about Hatchet? It was the story of a thirteen year old plane crash victim struggling to survive in the Canadian wilderness Alone With nothing but his hatchetThis was a main character who was close to our age Who was struggling to accept the recent divorce of his parents which was something that multiple kids in our class were going through and that the rest of us feared Who had absolutely none of the knowledge and skills seemingly necessary to make it in the wild Like the rest of us Seriously what middle school kid would actually know what to do if they were dropped in the woods alone with no supplies and no tools except for a hatchet? If we’re honest most of us as adults would have no clue what to do either One thing about kids though; they don’t know enough yet to doubt their ability to survive anything Kids believe that death doesn’t apply to them and in some ways that’s the only way one could survive this type of dire situationAnd survive Brian does But Paulsen doesn’t pull punches; this is not a romanticized survival story where food falls in the protagonist’s lap and they never get so much as a blister Brian gets put through the wringer This poor child get severely sunburned violently ill from bad fruit attacked by various forest dwellers and Not to mention the near starvation he is constantly battling As a twelve year old this book was terrifying and empowering and completely enthralling I’ve read it six times since then and it’s still all of those things with a healthy dose of nostalgia thrown in So thanks boys in my class for getting me interested If you’re a parent you should definitely get this book for your kids If you’re still a kid at heart and have never read this track down a copy You never know; the things you learn from this book could save your life if you ever get stranded alone in the middle of a forest For of my reviews as well as my own fiction and thoughts on life check out my blog Celestial Musings

    This is a great book It's a good adventure story for early teens I think it should have won the Newberry Medal for 1988 and so it goes Brian has to survive in the Canadian Woods on his own for a summer He learns to make fire shelter and hunt for fish and birds There is also a divorce theme going on as Brian's parents have recently split This is your typical survival tale Brian does face some harsh environments and he learns to be tough physically and importantly mentally He doesn't give in to feeling sorry for himself This is very well written and there is a reason it is so popular I will read of the Brian Saga
