Why did you decide to read this book? Did a friend suggest it? Did it have an interesting cover?: 
I liked the title of this book. A friend told me it was really good. The cover was cool and I liked reading Gary Paulsen's book Lawn Boy. This was way more serious.
What is the story about?/What happened in the story?: 
This book is about a boy, Brian who is lost in the woods in Canada after a plane crash. He has to survive alone and he meets lots of wildlife and storms.
Why did you like this story? or Why did you not like this story?: 
The book was really good because the author told what it was like to be cold and hungry and alone. I liked the part where Brian learns to hunt and catch animals to survive. He gets sick from eating too many berries and has to find some meat.
Other thoughts or feelings about this story? Anything else to add?: 
The book was good and made you think you were in the forest with Brian.

I decided to read this book when I was in this book club called book quest. Hatchet was one of the books on the list, and so i read the back of the book and it looked interesting. Everyone from my school said how great of a book it was and how amazing it is. Then I was wanting to read it so i could know what everyone was talking about.
What is the story about?/What happened in the story?: 
Hatchet was an amazing book. It involved lots of character and lots of action. The young boy,Brian, was on his way to go visit his father because his parents were divorced and he wanted to visit his dad. Well,the pilot had some difficulty while he was driving the plane that the plane ended up crashing into the woods. Brian landed safely but he was now stuck alone in the woods. Read on to find how Brian manages to survive in the woods. You will be truly glad you did!
Why did you like this story? or Why did you not like this story?: 
I really enjoyed this book because Gary Paulsen used very specific details. The details would have specific detailed images in your head. Hatchet was an amazing book for me because I felt like I was in the book while reading the book. I felt like I could feel and see what Brian did. Gary Paulsen makes every chapter end on a good note. I love this book. And if you love action,please go read Hatchet!
