Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
Reviewed By: I.D.
Hatchet is about a kid who was on a plane to see his dad in Canada but crashes into a forest. Now, he must survive under extreme conditions such as wolves, cold, and more. A tornado hits, a moose attacks, how will this character survive? You find out by reading the book (because I can't give spoilers out). Also, Gary Paulsen is the author of Brian's Winter, Dogsong, and other survival books.
Why I Picked it Up: I picked up this book because one of the librarians at my local library recommended it to me.
Why I Finished It: I finished this book because, although the beginning was boring, the middle and end sections got intense.
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend this book to any survival fans, Hunger Games fans, and adventure novel readers.
**Librarian Side Note** If you are into adventure tales, Gary Paulsen is where it's at! And bonus...his books are usually pretty short, so you can devour it in one setting, or one weekend, or however quickly (or slowly) you want! He has a ton of books out there like the reviewer mentioned, and Hatchet is actually just the first in a series about the main character from Hatchet!
