Comments on: “Hatchet” http://colonylibrarylady.com/2009/05/15/334/ Book reviews Thu, 21 May 2009 19:47:44 +0000 http://wordpress.com/ hourly 1 By: Ms. Waddle http://colonylibrarylady.com/2009/05/15/334/#comment-1356 Ms. Waddle Thu, 21 May 2009 19:47:44 +0000 http://colonylibrarylady.com/?p=334#comment-1356 Deity, Yes! This would be a better book for a reluctant 12-year-old boy reader. One of my sons is a reluctant reader. We read this book together and he really liked it. (But you still might need a bribe to get your nephew started! ;-) ) Robinson Crusoe is considered by many literature 'experts' (professors, etc.) to be one of the greatest novels of all time--I can see why you liked it. Maybe your nephew would be willing to read it after a few other guy adventure books?? Gary Paulson writes a lot of them. One I really liked was "Dogsong" (I think--it's about Paulson's experiences, especially training for and participating in the Iditarod). Deity,

But the archaic language immediately put him off. Do you think Hatchet could be sort of an introduction to this ?

It's much easier to read than" Into the Wild", so if you've read that, this could be a quick afternoon read in the summer.
