Hatchet, Main Character: Brian Robeson
"... it came to him that he would have to use a lake for landing. If he went down in the trees he was certain to die. The trees would tear the plane to pieces as it went down into them"(Paulsen 23).Brian is quick on his feet, because he can run from danger or react quickly. This shows that brian can easily survive in the wild due to his razor sharp reflexes. He had survived a porcupine, 2 bears, a skunk, and a moose.
Brian had been panicking since the pilot had a heart attack and could not drive the plane."Going to die, Brian thought.Going to die, gonna die gonna die- his whole brain screamed it in the sudden silence"(Paulsen 25). Brian's physical appearance was a little overweight in the beginning, but later in the story, due to the lack of food, he became lean.
Brian had been riding bikes with his best friend, terry and he had seen his mother in the station wagon with the man."In the mall, every detail. His mother sitting in the station wagon with the man. leaned across and kissed him, kissed the man with the short blonde hair, and it was not a friendly peck, but a kiss...she turned her head over at an angle...her hand up to touch his cheek, his forehead, while they were kissing"(Paulsen 66). Brian's strongest personality trait in the novel Hatchet was hopeful. Through all of his hardships, Brian had still remained hopeful.
Brian had been walking along minding his business and when he had bent down to pick up berries he heard a bear two steps away from him."It just walked up to him and he could've done nothing. Nothing"(Paulsen 73). Brian's character trait in the beginning of the story is Unsure, because he was not sure how to survive in this canadian environment.
Brian had been thinking bad thoughts and somehow this thought came to him."And there was also the thought of the pilot. Down in the blue with the plane ,strapped in, the body... awful, he thought"(Paulsen 42). In the middle of the novel, Brian is thoughtful because he had thought about how bad the pilot had died.
Brian had just recovered the survival pack from the plane"Incredible wealth. It was like all the holidays in the world, all the birthdays there were"(Paulsen 179). The character trait in the end of the novel is grateful. The reason for that is he had tried so hard to get the survival pack and he had done it. He now had plentiful supplies.
