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.
However, there are many clues in the story that show that Kevin and Max are not troubled by their disabilities and that their teamwork is useful. One example of how Max and Freak worked together was when they were watching fireworks. Freak couldn’t see the fireworks because he was tiny, but with the help of Max, he was carried by him, and placed on top of his
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.
One thing they have in common is that they both had to struggle in the past. Bo has been mistreated by his father, and Shelly has had problems with abuse from her family members and being sent away from home. These problems are pretty different though. Shelly had been physically assaulted by her father. Another character named Elvis in the
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.
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 differences in the beginning was that Chuck was more mature and knowledgeable in surviving in the wild than Brian who never experienced living in the wild by himself. Brian survived in the Canadian wilderness for 54days while Chuck survived in the isolated island for 4years. In ‘Hatchet’, Brian evolves exactly when the rescue plane passes him, however in the film Castaway, there wasn’t an exact timing when he evolved; it is just assumed that it was during his survival in the wild. There were also many similarities with the characters. One of the main similarities was that both Chuck and Brian was persistent and preserved being courageous in various of situations and they improvised from the mistakes they made improving day by day.
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.
“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.
However, both Jack and Priscilla are quite similar due to their protective attitudes towards their friends. For example, in the story “Wonder”, Jack ended up in a showdown with Julian because he was insulting Auggie; this showdown resulted in Jack getting suspended from the school for two whole days. Also, on a camping trip, Auggie, Jack, and a few others, were attacked by some older seventh graders, and Jack protected Auggie; and they all ended up bruised and scraped. To recap, both stories are similar, in a sense, because they both deal with standing up to bullying. Priscilla stood up for Melvin and Jack stood up for Auggie; but both didn’t stand up correctly, they resorted to physical violence to protect the people they care
Max help Kevin out a lot because when they were in the street way but Max learned to stand up for himself and Kevin because he started to care about him and himself as well. He started to protect his friends and not be afraid of anyone. Just started to care about people and Kevin kept going on. Max would do anything for Kevin because he knew that Kevin had a problem like in the lunchroom when Kevin started choking and Max saved Kevin's life. It just shows how much Max cares about Kevin as a friend to him and not just a person but like a brother.
In Brian’s life was when the pilot had a heart attack in Hatchet. Well Hatchet is a children’s book, and because of the heart it made the book more realistic, so because of this he encouraged kids to read. Paulsen changed his life and impacted his country by a sad heart attack; finally let’s move on to Melba
