“The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, is a narrative about Mr. Sanger Rainsford, a celebrated hunter, who finds himself on a secluded island after falling overboard a yacht. Rainsford locates a large building on the island and meets General Zaroff, who invites him to rest and replenish his health in his home. After Zaroff explains that he also enjoys hunting, he also reveals that he has discovered a new, more dangerous animal to hunt: humans. Zaroff forces Rainsford to become the hunted in order to win his freedom and return to the mainland. Connell’s central idea suggests that instinct does not always yield to reason.
Lee initially shows determination on page 1, as she crosses the border of North Korea into China at 17 years old, alone. This is a display of Lee's determination because she goes on a frightening journey into a new country by herself at a young age. Her determination really comes into play in this scenario because even though she is scared, she also knows that her actions will lead her on a better path in life. That thought is what ultimately keeps Lee going on her journey. Another example of Lee's determination is when she helps her family escape North Korea and reach the safer, South Korea (2).

The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with

Twas the night after General Zaroff was killed during insane battle between Zaroff and Rainsford. General Zaroff was killed late at night, the battle between them was insanely tough to beat each other because the two great opponents were going against one on one. They had both walked in on that battle last night, and that's when everything turned the wrong way.

“Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell uses both internal conflict (character vs. self) and external conflicts, including character vs. character and character vs. nature, the author uses all of these conflicts consequently it makes the reader tense. This story uses ordinary plot structure: exposition comes 1st, then rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Richard Connell wrote the story this way so that the readers meet the character first, then get slowly excited until it goes to the climax. This story’s exposition happens when Rainsford gets introduced when he and Whitney talk in the ship. Rising action takes place when Rainsford falls from the boat.
