In this essay I will compare the differences and similarities of events in the book “Hatchet” and the movie “A Cry in the Wild”. Our class read a book called “Hatchet” and saw the movie “A Cry in the Wild” (based on Hatchet). I realized that the book and movie had many differences and also some similarities. In my essay I will compare some events that happened to the main character Brian. I’m going to compare the differences on how the rescue plane came to save Brian, the animals that attacked him and the food he ate while he was in the Canadian wilderness. When I read the book and saw the movie I found many differences between the events in the book Hatchet and the events in the movie A Cry in the Wild. In the book when the plane crashed in the wilderness the rescue plane came after he founded food, made fire, and a shelter to live. When the rescue plane came Brian ran to make more fire to send signals in the sky so they could see him. In the movie the rescue plane came the same day as the plane crashed and he didn’t have fire or made a shelter to live so he screamed loudly so they could hear him or see him but the plane turned away.

In this event I found significant difference and little similarities between “Hatchet” and “A Cry in the Wild” Another difference between the movie and the book are the animals that attacked Brian while he was in the wilderness. In the movie the bear attacked Brian and destroyed his shelter and he wrestled and injured the bear. Also in the movie Brian got attacked by a raccoon. While in the book Brian sees the bear but doesn’t have any physical contact with her. In the book Brian got attacked by a moose and a skunk. In this event I discovered some differences but also some similarities like the wolf, porcupine and the mosquitoes attack. The book and the movie have many differences and also similarities. In the hatchet Brian founded food after three days while in the movie he founded berries the same day as the plane crashed.

The similar of this event is that the narrator tells us that he ate berries and fishes in the book and also in the movie. One thing that made me cringe was that in “A Cry in the Wild” Brian ate bugs and worms while in the book he didn’t eat anything like that but raw turtle eggs. In the book Brian also had a first meal with birds and large rabbits. In conclusion, the book “Hatchet” and the movie “A Cry in the Wild” have many differences but also some similarities between the events that happen in the book and the movie. I really liked the book because I could relate to Brian and his thoughts. The books had many flashbacks so I could understand the situation and feel what he was feeling, while in the movie were no talking or flashbacks at all.
