I loved this book. This book had all of the right story leading up to the plot. I love this book because it is a great book for a thrill. When you are reading it you always want to know what is going to happen next. This book was great at having different parts of action and then calmed down and then it went back up again. There was a little bit of foreshadowing in this book that would show how Brian would survive and this gave the reader a little bit of relief. I would like to find more books like this one. I love reading survival books and see how people deal with different challenges. A lot of the time books can give great ideas for what to do in real life. Though surviving with only a hatchet would be hard it is always wanting you to know what will happen next. This is a great book and I would read it again. I want to read more books from Gary Paulson because I loved this book so much. It is an easy and fun read. This book was awesome!
