Book Review of
My son read and loved Hatchet by Gary Paulsen when he was about thirteen and loved it. He then went on to read several other Gary Paulsen books.
I had never read a Gary Paulsen book until last year. On a road trip my son and I listen to Gary Paulsen’s memoir Gone To the Woods. After listening to it on audio I knew that I wanted to read Hatchet.
I listen to Hatchet on audio and enjoyed it. I now see why so many boys and teens love this adventure story. This book is about survival, betrayal, doubt, self-pity, fears, wild animals, and so much more.
