In my opinion, Hatchet does a better job explaining the story way more effectively than the movie “A Cry In The Wild”. Now, I do have some reasoning behind my opinion. What you thought I was going to explain?! To begin with, there are some phenomenal imagery, details, and foreshadowing in the book rather than in the movie. For example, the book shows what Brian is seeing and reacting during the pilot’s heart attack. This is an example of imagery. Rather in the movie, Brian hardly even reacts during this event in the beginning of the story. Yes Brian tries to help, but that’s basiclly it. Also, the author explains what Brian is thinking, feeling, and interacting during the ride. For example, when Brian’s mom gave Brian a hatchet, the author
In my opinion think Hatchet does a better job of telling the story than A cry in the wild. I believe this because the narrator gives more details when he describe when Brian got into the plane.The narrator said Brian needed to build a raft.For example,the narrator said “ Brian build a raft “on page 159. In the movie it didn’t really show Brian building the raft. The movie didn’t show when Brian use shoelace to build the raft. The book also did a better job of showing the dead pilot. The narrator said that Brian saw the fish eating off the skull of the pilot. In the movie it didn’t show the fish eating off of the pilot. As you can see Hatchet does a better job explaining the story than the movie.
What is the SUBJECT of the text/communication act? Be specific. (Don’t say “potatoes” if the subject is really “ten easy ways to prepare potatoes a family dinner.”)
In my opinion Hatchet explains the story better using imagery and foreshadowing.For example when Brian was eating the raspberries he told us that they were tangy, sweet, juicy, and ripe which helped me almost be able to taste the berries. When Brian from, “A Cry In The Wild”ate the fish he just talked to himself I couldn’t paint a picture in my head or even almost taste it, it really didn’t describe the fish or use imagery. When Brian in hatchet ate the fish he told us it was greasy,flaky smelled good,and tasted so good.I could almost smell and taste the fish this is where he used imagery again. Also when Brian from the movie ate the gut cherries he just spit them out instead of giving more description and imagery. Again when Brian in the story
Throughout the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, the author most often wrote in short, concise sentences or fragments to make it read as a series of thoughts rather than a structured story. For instance, he writes, “In fact since Brian had come to the small airport in Hampton, New York to meet the plane—driven by his mother—the pilot had spoken only five words to him. ‘Get in the copilot's seat.’ Which Brian had done. They had taken off and that was the last of the conversation (Paulsen 1-2).” The short, simple sentence structure contributes to the emotional theme of the story by reading more as thoughts than a recollection, and it helps the reader understand the main character Brian’s thought processes after his plane crashed.
Brian in Hatchet survives a plane crash and landed in a Canadian Wilderness. He learned to survive on his own and find shelter. He was starting to give up but then he remembered the hatchet his mom gave him. The hatchet made Brian feel happy and strong again and he was able to hunt and made connections with his old English Teacher. (Hatchet p.7) He said that all he wanted
Hatchet does a better job of telling the story.Hatchet has very descriptive and exciting words.Even though ‘A cry in the wild is a movie’, I think it could explain the movie better.Like have a more exciting,get you off the edge of the seat, kind of movie.For example,in the book i feel like the scences were shorter.I was a little disappionted.I think that the bear scene could be longer.Also the tornado wasn’t that big .I mean yeah it destoryed his shelter but it could have been more disturitve.Maybe it could have hurt Brian.That’s why I think Hatchet is better than the
First, Brian uses good survival strategies by using trial and error. He used this strategy well. For example, he started steering the plane up and down to keep it steady. He used trial and error by doing it over and over again until he did it correctly. Another way he used trial and error was, he kept missing the fish. He kept missing the fish because he didn't realize that water refracts. After he realized he was not going crazy and the fish weren't going that fast. He also used trial and error because he almost went blind. Brian almost went blind when he made his own bow and arrow. He learns he is doing it wrong and decided to fix it. Now that we know about trial and error, let's go and see how Brian uses his hatchet to survive.
The Hatchet is a intense survival story. The main character Brian is trapped in a forest after a bad plane crash. In the story, Brian used three survival strategies to lead him to staying alive in the forest and being able to face any challenges of survival. The strategies used are Trial and Error, Positive Thinking, and Observation. In the next paragraphs I will talk about the three main survival strategies Brian used to survive the forest.
I think Hatchet tells the story better. Because it gave more details for example ,when Brian found blueberries you can could imagine him crushing, them with his teeth and swallowing the sweet juice. In A Cry In A Wild he just eats them. And when Brian had a dream of his dad and Terry of fire that was great foreshadowing. In A Cry In The Wild there was no dream not even a Terry. These examples clearly show why Hatchet tells the story better because of its imagery and foreshadowing and some events in Hatchet weren’t in A Cry In The Wild. In conclusion ,this is why I think Hatchet tells a better story.
“Hatchet” does a better job of telling the story, than “A cry in the wilds” . I believe this because it show’s more imagery and a better understanding of foreshadowing, rather than just showing us a picture. For example, imagery in the book, Brian described the kiss of his mother and the secret kissing. According to the text, the book showed imagery by saying , “he widened the hole with his finger and looked inside. Just an egg. It had a dark yellow yolk and not so much to bite as he thought there would be. Just an egg. Food. Just an egg he had to eat. Raw. For another example, the book also foreshadowed, “and he kicked out as hard as he could, and threw the hatchet at the sound, a noise coming from his throat. But the hatchet missed, sailed
Gary Paulsen 's Hatchet is a modern classic tale of a stranded boy 's struggle for survival in the wilderness. The book is based on a 13-year-old who is accustomed to big-city life and comfort when he finds himself alone in a remote Canadian forest with no tools but a hatchet his mother gave him.
I think that the Hatchet book is more detailed than the movie A Cry In The Wild, because I can imagine things happening in my head and because I can understand what is happening. An example is when the plane crashed into the l-shaped lake. I can image that the engine broke down and then the plane fell like a roller coaster going down and landed in a lake with a big splash or boom. I can also imagine the porcupine coming into the shelter where Brian was sleeping and Brian trying to fight it off, then the quills getting shot into his leg. Another example is whenever the birds lead Brian to the berries. The thing that I imagined when that happened was that there was a flock of birds in a bush and when Brian came along the way he
I believe that the film “A Cry in the Wild” does a better job than the book Hatchet. I believe this because the film is more descriptive than the book because it shows when Brian is sticking a tree branch in a bear. In the book it says that the bear just roars at Brian. Another example is in the film, Brian eats maggots and worms, in the book he eats fish and eggs from turtles. Once in the movie, a bear comes after him. To me that is a little more descriptive than saying the bear roared at him. That is why I think “A Cry in the Wild” is better than the book Hatchet the book.
Do you have your own hatchet? I don 't have my own hatchet. But Brian Robeson have his own hatchet. Hatchet by gary Paulsen was fist published in 1987. Fist, I see this book 's cover. But I can 't expect this book 's summary. Gary Paulsen is this book 's author. Gary Paulsen is a popular author. He writes many books and he got many books and He got many prizes. So I expected this book.
