    "Hatchet (Brian's Saga Book 1) is a pretty cool little book for the tween crowd that enjoys books like the hunger games and percy jackson this is a must have for any avid child reader."

    "I was glancing through this for my son, who has been having some difficulties with more complex reading exercises. It's well written, but I'm a bit concerned about some of the content. It really seems to get into slut-shaming territory, making it seem as if a woman can't have wants and needs, and how it's some terrible secret if she acts on those. "

    "This is a best seller and Saga 1 book. Looks like a very interesting wilderness book for any reader/early tween/teen. It does have quite a few pages, but looks as though it keeps the reader interested thru out. Love that it offers up so many versions to read/purchase."

    "I read this book myself in elementary school and really enjoyed it, and now my son is at the age where I get to share it with him. This book left an impression on me after all these years. It's that good. This was probably the first book I ever read to really sparked an interest in nature and survival, and I hope it does the same with my child."

    "Hatchet is a highly rated book that has been available for some time. Perfect for those who love nature and are learning about themselves as they grow up. May be geared for a slightly younger audience but teens will enjoy it nonetheless,"

    "I read this book and it was really moving and interesting to read.The story line was very heart-stopping and very dramatic and I could not help not noticing that time had passed so fast. I would recommend it to anyone over 12."

    "I think that Hatchet (the first book in Brian's Saga) written by Gary Paulsen is a really good book. It's a story of survival with 13-year-old Brian using his wit and will and his hatchet to persevere after a plane crash leaves him alone in the Canadian wilderness. He makes plenty of mistakes, but he learns. The book kept me focused and on edge, worrying about Brian. The only thing that I didn't really like was his thoughts about his parents divorce. It felt unnecessary. Otherwise, it's a really good Newberry Honor book."
