Intervention came by way of two frat boys who happen along at the exact same moment forcing the boys into running and hiding. No real means of escape was available so they ran out of sight into the bog around the lake shore. Had he looked for the key after hitting the greasy character, instead of trying to prove his badness again, they would be long gone by now. Instead they were all stranded wading in nasty water not knowing when they would be able to escape.
It had been a week since Rainsford managed to kill the nefarious General Zaroff. The challenging part was almost over or so it seemed. There was not a clear way for Rainsford to escape. As days passed, Rainsford tried to escape. He tried making a boat from driftwood that he found, he tried swimming, he even tried sending a signal by using a flashlight. Rainsford had become so desperate that he even tried some ridiculous plans like trying to pole vault across the ocean. As a result, Rainsford ended up having huge gashes in his left leg ,which got infected, and he had to amputate it. As days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, Rainsford had lost hope and became bitter.
The story “The Most Dangerous Game” begins by introducing two characters; Whitney and Rainsford. We automatically find out that they are on a yacht talking of an island named “Ship-Trap Island”, a place that sailors dread and avoid. The two men, Whitney and Rainsford falls off the yacht after the sound of gun shots steal his attention. Rainsford swims toward the gunshots then hears the screeching sound of an animal. Finally, Rainsford reaches the rocky shore and falls asleep. When Rainsford awakens he sets out to find food but ends up finding an empty rifle cartridge and human footprints. Rainsford follows the footprints and runs into hunters Ivan and General Zaroff.

The story opens in the Caribbean on a Brazil-bound yacht and continues on a mysterious Caribbean island. Ship - Trap island is somewhere in the tropics, in the Caribbean. We know that there are giant rocks nearby, but Zaroff has it marked as safe passage. The location of the story takes place over the course of several nights, where Rainsford eludes the general whose most dangerous game proves to be Rainsford himself. (p) It also can be representative of a time in Rainsford's hunting days as an unguided purpose in and meaning in his
The man asks Rainsford why he is out in this island all Rainsford says is he’s out hunting and heard the crash. Rainsford tells Jack about the mansion and as soon as they arrive there he’ll fix him up and take care of him. Jack has no idea what is wrong with Rainsford but something is not right about him. Two hours later they arrive at the mansion.
Being lost in an island, hungry, and tired is not an everyday thing. So Rainsford being in that situation, had no other choice than except Zaroff’s generosity. Zaroff gave Rainsford clothes, food and, a place to sleep. Zaroff tells Rainsford to join him for dinner, and Rainsford went to the dinner room as told. Sitting down eating there meal.

The ship in the original story leaves Rainsford behind because it is the middle of the night and everyone is sleeping but in the movie to make the story more interesting was smashed to smithereens. As I mentioned above to sell tickets Hollywood has to make the story more interesting so they added a girl, her brother, a shark and multiple other crew members but what became of these people? Well to start Eve Trowbridge's, brother was Zaroff's first victim while Rainsford was on the island instead of like the story Rainsford being the one and only victim during his stay. Then instead of like the story where everyone was just fine except Rainsford in the movie Hollywood decided it would be more interesting if everyone except Rainsford died. Before I conclude, I would also like to point out that the place and Way General Zaroff was murdered was changed, in the story which I personally prefer Rainsford sneaks into the General's bedroom and surprises him where they fight in hand to hand combat to the death in the movie, however Rainsford just walks in the front door and fights with The Count and his guards until finally, he stabs the Count in the back with an arrow and

The guy who wiped the other guy came back and he said “The ship is about to sail” I think by ship he means this floating house and the guy next to me explained that the ship is about to go over the seas. A few hours later a guy came down but this wasn’t the same guy he came down and got around 30 people out of this dark room at first I thought they were free but a few hours later when it was dark the people came back into this dark tight room. It’s probably midnight now and it’s freezing and I am naked and so is everyone else.
Rainsford is on the island being hunted by Zaroff and has no one to help him. "The best sport in the world" agreed Rainsford. "For the hunter," amended Whitney. "Not for the jaguar," (Connell). Rainsford goes from the hunter to the hunted. Kane asked everyone in town to help but they refused to help. "[ Metrick looks up at the wall clock. It is seven minutes to eleven,]" (Foreman).
Rainsford had arrived on the shore of Ship-Trap Island after falling off a yacht. According to the narrator, “Bleak darkness was blacking out the sea and jungle when Rainsford sighted the lights” (Connell 45). The island Rainsford arrived on was filled with darkness, with light only coming from Zaroff’s château. The use of setting signifies the importance of where the story is taking place. In the beginning of the story, the island was described as dark, giving a feeling of indistinction.This setting first overwhelmed Rainsford, for he did not know what to do. The setting of the jungle is described as a location of being constrictive because it did not allow Rainsford to return back home. Rainsford used his instinct to navigate though the unknowns of Ship-Trap Island. Zaroff had the confidence of navigating the island’s challenges, so he distrusted his instinct. While setting helped reveal the message of the story, characterization also supported the author’s argument.
Chunk 1: to begin with, when Rainsford is on the deck of the yacht at night he hears a gunshot piercing the air. Trying to get a closer look, Rainsford loses his balance and falls off the yacht into the water. In the water, “a certain coolheadedness had come to him”(3). Rainsford remains calm. When rainsford falls from the yacht, he does not try swimming back to the yacht. Rainsford recalls the direction where he heard the gunshots. From there, Rainsford begins swimming in that direction in the thick and darkness of the night to Ship Trap Island. Rainsford’s
The story starts off with Sanger Rainsford an accomplished hunter talking to his dear friend Whitney, Rainsford and Whitney are having a conversation about the jaguars they will be hunting can’t feel anything- except fear. “The fear of pain and the fear of death” (Whitney24). When Rainsford falls overboard of the yacht he swims up to the jagged shoreline of the ship- trap island, where once there he finds General Zaroff’s palatial chateau. The island itself has a dreary feel with jagged rocks, mangled trees, with the name ship-trap island. He does not exact revenge on someone, however, he plays a cruel game. The prisoners of his island get three days if in those three days he kills them they lose, but if they survive they are allowed off the island. No one has ever made it off the island. Zaroff does this because he believes he is a superior hunter, able to hunt any animal in the world because they can’t reason to escape or show any emotion of being hunted (Rainsford24). Hunting people give him a thrill like no other, they can reason and problem solve, most likely out of fear but reason nonetheless. Rainsford is the only person to ever outsmart General Zaroff and escape the island. What General Zaroff does is malicious and is not condoned but he is upfront and not afraid to admit what he does to Rainsford. General Zaroff does not have anything planned out, what happens is just
