The Differences and Similarities between the Book “Hatchet” and its Movie “A Cry in the Wild”

In this essay I will compare the differences and similarities of events in the book “Hatchet” and the movie “A Cry in the Wild”.

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.
