My name is Brian Robeson and I am thirteen years old and I am alone in the north woods.
The title of the book I am reading is Hatchet. The book's protagonist is named Brian Robeson. "Brian Robeson stared out the window of the small plane at the endless northern wilderness below," (Paulsen 1).
I am going to die here, the searchers won't find me
Brian Robeson's physical description, is unclear, but we could determine his looks by using his age. "My name is Brian Robeson and I am thirteen years old and I am alone in the north woods," (Paulsen 44). The author states that Brian is thirteen years old, this gives us a basic idea of what Brian looks like
The strongest characteristic that Brian has is facing any challenges. "Come on... is that all you can hit me with- a moose and a tornado," (Paulsen 152). Brian had faced so many challenges, the secret, hunger, loneliness, and etc. but he didn't give up, and he actually became better, as if these challenges only made him stronger.
Nothing is easy
In the beginning of Hatchet, Brian's main character trait was being doubtful and reliant. "They might not find me for two or three days. He felt his heartbeat increase as the fear started," (Paulsen 51). Brian rellies for the searchers to rescue him instead of actually surviving. In addition, Brian is also doubtful, this makes him lose hope and be vulnerable.
In the middle of Hatchet, Brian's main character trait was knowledge. "But hope in his knowledge. Hope in the fact that he could learn and survive and take care of himself," (Paulsen 123). Brian came to the point where he realizes that he doesn't need to be rescued by the searchers because he is independent and can adapt quickly.
In the end of Hatchet, Brian's main characteristic was determination. "Stupid, he thought. I was stupid to think I could just come out here and get inside the plane. Nothing is that easy. Not out here, not in this place. Nothing is easy," (Paulsen 167) Brian came to the point where he realizes that life isn't easy. From this, he learned that hard working and determination was the key to surviving.
