We enjoyed the story, specifically the use of the Hatchet!
The sparks on the cave call when the Hatchet was thrown.
My son and I were anxious for our quiet time dates so we could listen to this story!
It is great for someone who camps because they know what it feels like to be in the woods but definitely very different to
I've loved the book since I first read it in school. The narration is riveting from the start to the end. If you come to love this book as I have, please continue to the rest of the Brian series. I don't think many will be disappointed.
I read this boy as a young boy in elementary school. When I got my audible it was the first book a listened to. This book hits close to home with my passion for the outdoors. Gary Paulsen is a great author.
Plane crash, drowning, dehydration, starvation, porcupine , skunk, Mosquitos, flies, bear, mouse, and then a tornado that is one tough 13 year old.
I have been reading Hatchet to my students for years (the truth is I have been attempting to read it to my students for years.) I have always had difficulty getting through it, it is not an easy read aloud. That being said, Mr. Coyote does an excellent job making the story work in audio.
The scene with the tornado is great. Through his reading of that scene, Mr. Coyote did a great job making me anxious as to what would happen to Brian.
I have not listened to another book read by Mr. Coyote. If I saw his name on another audio book it would definitely be something that would make it a more attractive choice.
Having read the book I was expecting a lot of the emotional twists of the story. That being said, I did have some emotions when it came to Brian's memories of his mother and father.
