I’ve always loved movies, but I’m not much of a book reader. Despite this, I read Hatchet for and it was...okay. It wasn’t the best but it was enjoyable to some extent. The movie, A Cry in the Wild, though was so cringe worthy that my distant, soon to be wife, or husband, cringed even though she, or he, probably didn’t see it. It was so bad that it was good, then bad again. But compared to the book? Well…
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.
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.
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.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
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 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 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.
In Kate Chopin’s novel, The Awakening, we are introduced to a woman named Edna Pontellier. She is a wife, a mother, and a homemaker who struggles to fit in the ideal “Victorian woman” mold. The expectations of women during the Victorian era was for women to be devoted to her husband, children and her home and it was frowned if a woman were to devote some time for the benefit of herself. The women were like caged birds; unable to use her wings for flight. Throughout the novel, Edna’s dissatisfaction with her life becomes apparent and we see Edna’s journey to independence and self-discovery. Chopin uses bird symbolism and metaphors to reflect Edna’s journey and her true desires. The bird is used as a symbolic element used to represent Edna and
“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
The horror story is a uniquely interactive genre. Its main objective is to make the reader feel something, whether that be fear, anxiety, suspense, or any combination thereof. These feelings are evoked with the use of a monster, depending on the story it can be an external source, like a vampire or werewolf, or it could be something inside one of the characters, something in their psyche. In her story, “The Grave”, P.D.Cacek utilizes the literary elements of symbolism, imagery, and point of view.
Connell uses imagery to show the reader how intense and fearful Rainsford feels in the story.
Mary Oliver’s poem “Wild Geese” was a text that had a profound, illuminating, and positive impact upon me due to its use of imagery, its relevant and meaningful message, and the insightful process of preparing the poem for verbal recitation. I first read “Wild Geese” in fifth grade as part of a year-long poetry project, and although I had been exposed to poetry prior to that project, I had never before analyzed a poem in such great depth. This process of becoming intimately familiar with the poem—I can still recite most of it to this day—allowed it to have the effect it did; the more one engulfs oneself in a text, the more of an impact that text will inevitably have. “Wild Geese” was both revealing and thought-provoking: reciting it gave me
What is the significance of animal imagery used by Gabriel Marquez within A Chronicle of a Death Foretold?
In the two poems Sympathy by Paul Laurence Dunbar and Caged Bird by Maya Angelou, gave a comparison between the life of a caged bird and the life of a slave. There are similarities and differences in the two poems.
