The short story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard

Connell is about the hunter and the hunted but later in the story it

becomes ironic because it turns into a game were the hunter becomes

the hunted. It turns into a chase of competition and of survival.

Two sailors Rainsford and his partner Whitney sailed in to the

darkness of the of sea. Their purpose was to hunt, they called it the ”

greatest sport”. They were hunters and headed to the Amazon to hunt

vicious animals such as Jaguars, and tigers.

They sailed to an island called “Ship-Trap Island”. Sailors

feared this island and had curious dread of such a scarry place. The

sky was filled with darkness when suddently he heard Three gun

shots that were fired, and heard them again and again. Then he heard

a scream while smoking a pipe when suddently the pipe fell and as he

tried to reach for it he whent down into the sea were the waves

swallowed his screams.

Nobody could have heard him as the ocean swallowed his

screams and the only chance of survival was to swim. Rainsford

swam towards the screams and ended up in the Island. He walked on

the shoreline and later found a place that looked like a mansion.

There he met General Zaroff who bought the island to hunt. He was

indeed a sporstman who invented a new sensation of the hunting

game. His game was to train those men who’s ships were wrecked

and ended up in that island, and then provide them with food and a

knife for three days. Once they were trained they were led out into

the island as a head start while Zaroff chase after them and tried to

hunt them down. If They survived during those three days they had

won the game and they were let free but in the other case if they were

found they were killed.

Zaroff never lost the game so if one of the men being hunted

was about to survive he would release the hounds to chased after

them. Rainsford rested and the next morning had a dispute with Zaroff

and told him that this hunting style was to brutal. In this argument

Zaroff got mad and at this point in the story Raisford became the

hunted. He was let loose into the island were he was to prepare

himself for the most dangerous game of his life, the survival of the


The first night was panicking and worried Rainsford as he

hidded on top of a tree. The next day he set up a trap but Zaroff

did’nt fall for it and he almost got caught when Zaroff was right next to

the bushes were Rainsford was hiding. the last day he set up a pitfall

and while Zarroff and his servant were serching, his servant

unfortunately fell into the pit. Rainsford got out of the Island trying to

escape by swimming out into the ocean and swam back to the

mansion and when Zaroff returned Rainsford switched the game

around and proposed him to become the hunted.

I like this short story because Rainsford was wise in making

traps wich allowed Zaroff to take more time trying to find him and did

them successfully wich helped him survive those three days. I also

liked how the story ended it was kind of ironic the way Rainsfored

changed the game around and became the hunter and Zaroff became

the hunted. I thought it was a good idea because this way Zaroff

would realise that his game of hunting people was wrong and this

would teach him a lesson.
