In the novel Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen the main character's name is Brian Robeson. He tries to survive in a plane with a pilot who just had a heart attack. When he was in the plane he was scared knowing that if something happened to the plane he could die. The text states on page 15,¨He had to fly it somehow. Had to fly the plane. He had to help himself. The pilot was gone…” That explains that Brian is trying to fly a plane while trying to survive and he is scared that he might die. Another thing that describes his character is that through all that he has been through so far it all has been because of his parents divorce. An example on page 6 is, “ In the summer Brian would live with his father. In the school year with his mother.” That shows
The reason I think Hatchet does a better job telling the story is because it tells all of the good details and juicy delicious tails. But on the other hand, A Cry in The Wind it just tells some parts. For example, it really didn’t tell you about his mom having an affair with the man in the station wagon. But in Hatchet it tells you all about the affair. This is why I picked Hatchet as the book that does a better job telling the story to me.
Hatchet did the best job at telling the story, because the book gives us better details such as foreshadowing and imagery. I feel that the book Hatchet displays foreshadowing and imagery because Brain gets to fly the plane, letting us know that he will need to fly the plane later in the story. Also during the plane crash he has a difficult time getting out of the plane in the water than in the movie “A Cry in The Wild.”Although the movie had Brian not injured, In Hatchet it had him injured which made it harder to move around. Hatchet also shows us imagery. When Brian imagines being at the place when the “Secret” happened. It gave us details about the place he was in and it also told us how Brian felt about it.Even though the book had teased
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
In the book Brian 's winter the main character is Brian from the book Hatchet. Brian 's winter is a spin of book telling the story of him if he wasn 't rescued at the end of Hatchet and had to last the winter in the woods. This book was made to the people wondering what would 've happen to brian if he wasn 't rescued. Brian 's Winter shows how tough he has to be able to survive and make it through the winter.
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
The main character is introduced while on his way to an airport where he will take a flight to go visit his father for the summer. The first insight into Brian’s personality is his abhorrent thoughts toward his mother: “Divorce. It was an ugly word, he thought. A tearing, ugly word that meant fights and yelling, lawyers…” (Paulsen 3). In Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, a thirteen year old boy’s parents have recently had a divorce, leaving the young boy devastated. Throughout this novel, Brian’s characterization and character development are used to convey theme.
“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
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.
Have you ever been stuck in the wilderness? Brian Robeson, a 13 year old was for 54 days. What kept him alive? Well, Brian used plenty of things. He used his hatchet, and most importantly, his survival strategies. Three of Brain's strategies were; trial and error, using his senses, and being observant.
There are many times in one’s life where a simple positive gesture can make their day. Anne, in “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank along with Louise Ogawa in “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, display attitudes that not only helped themselves, but gave other people hope. Though some might argue that positivity during a conflicting situation won’t help resolve anything, having a positive outlook on a negative situation can help someone solve their disagreement swiftly and efficiently. The best way someone can respond to conflict is with a positive attitude because it can be a stress reliever, give tremendous benefits to their physical health, and make others around them happier.

He no longer has to try and survive like everything else, he is top of the food chain now and also finds vacuumed foods. As he starts cooking a feast for himself a plane flies in because of a tracker that was also in this bag, and with Brian’s new perspective the first thing he ask the stranger is if he would like some
Positive thinking is one of the best ways to respond to conflict because it can affect your physical health in a constructive way.
