Turning points can challenge your life at times. It can make your life better or worse. This idea comes up in Hatchet, a fiction by Gary Paulsen, Guts, a non-fiction by Gary Paulsen, and Island of the Blue dolphins, a fiction by scott o’dell. These stories all have turning points that affect them in the same way, doing so, they change their lives and things around them.
The point of view of the hatchet is 3rd omniscient point of view. Brian is described in words as he and also gives his thoughts. And you can tell the author calls brian he and him “It’s something to understand he thought,...”. The author clearly states “he thought” in that segment of a sentence showing how he feels .
The literary techniques that are used in “Hatchet” are parallelism, personification, and anomotopea. Gary Polsen uses parallelism to describe an emotion the character is feeling by repeating one word over and over again. One example of parallelism is in section three of chapter 13, which states “Turn, smell, listen, feel, and then a sound, a small sound”. The second example is in section 15 in chapter 17, which says “He took out the wing and tail feathers, which were stiff and long and pretty-banded speckled in browns and grays and light reds.” The third and final example of parallelism is in chapter 19, which says “Out one at a time to examine them, turn the in the light, touch them and feel them with his hands and eyes”.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
Brian 's Winter is a book about survival to be specific the survival of Brian the main character of Hatchet and the main character of this book to. Themes of this story are loneliness , ancient people , and survival. Books like this are interesting to read they keep you wondering how he is going to make it what will he do next to be able to survive will he get rescued. These are a few questions you will keep asking yourself while you read this book. At the end of the book Brian finally gets rescued it is worth it.
But she end Finally, In Guts the writer of Hatchet Gary Paulsen talks about how he faces catastrophic things in his life. Before he was able
The Jacket Sometimes in life, there are things that people need to do that they don’t want to. Gary Soto, shows the narrator to accept the things that are given. The book “The Jacket” tell the story about a boy that wears his jacket for a long time and needs a new one. When his mother gets him a jacket, everything turns into bad luck.
I think that Hatchet does a better job of telling the story. 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.
Gary Paulsen’s novel, “Hatchet” introduces us to the protagonist, Brian, a young boy facing an amazing challenge. Brian’s character evolves over the course of the novel from an overwhelmed little boy to becoming a mature man. At the beginning of the novel, the best word to describe Brian’s personality or character is panicked. For example When the pilot of the plane has a heart attack and dies, Brian experiences “a terror so intense that his breathing, his thinking, and nearly his heart had stopped” (Passage A).
Hatchet, the book, did a better job at telling the story than “A Cry in the Wild”. In my opinion, Hatchet did a better job at telling the story because it gives you more details. In Hatchet they use a lot of imagery. You can actually imagine what they are talking about without actually seeing it. In both, Hatchet and “A Cry in the Wild” they use foreshadowing.
