Without the false channel, all of the ships would not go through the misleading path, leading them right into the general's hands. The false channel is a starting point for General Zaroff, and the isolation of the island is another ingredient in his recipe for disaster.

However, these two men both have different philosophies when it comes to if their prey is equal to or lower than themselves. The first hunter, Rainsford, believes that hunters should respect their prey, and that the prey is equal to the hunter.
Have you ever been hunted? Random question right but for Katniss Everdeen and Rainsford the answer would be yes. Yann Martel states “You must take the way life comes at you and make the best of it.” I agree with this because life can change so quickly and you must accept it.

Before this essay goes any farther, you must be informed that these two men are hunters in the extreme. And when I say extreme, I mean almost insane, or would die in the process of killing the biggest game. One of these hunters is Sanger Rainsford, who is so amazing at hunting; he even wrote a book about his findings. The other man's name is General Zaroff who
In saying this, the general reveals irony in his character because he has just said what his game really is. Most, including Rainsford, would consider the hunting of humans a very uncivilized activity, but the general not only thinks himself to be civilized, but also acts civilized in his everyday manner.

The suspense is developed while Rainsford is talking with General Zaroff about what the most dangerous game is, the readers are left wondering what could this game be and why couldn’t Rainsford think of it. It is sustained after we find out what the most dangerous game is, Rainsford then request to leave but the only off the island is to be General Zaroff’s game and to beat General Zaroff. The roles that coincidence comes into play is after the discussion between Whiney and Rainsford, after Whiney turns in for the night, Rainsford, after hearing gunshot in the direction of the island he then leans
