In the first story “ The Most Dangerous Game” the main character Rainsford is being hunted by Zaroff the owner of Ship Trap island. And during the story the author describes Zaroff very well. For example, “ He was a tall man past middle age, for his hair was a vivid white; but his thick eyebrows and pointed military mustache were as black as the night from which Rainsford had come. His eyes, too, were black and very bright. He had high cheekbones, a sharpcut nose, a spark, dark face--the face of a man used to giving orders, the face of an aristocrat.”
The mood in another scene is happiness because Rainford actually had what it took to win the big hunt. Rainsford ended that night laying in general Zaroff’s bed. “A man, who had been hiding in the curtains of the bed, was standing there. " Rainsford!" screamed the general,” (14). In both scenes Rainford had to out smart General Zaroff to win the big hunt.

This law was also seen in Inception. In that case, a character named Yusuf who is a multi-billionaire is on a quest to see one of his competitor’s crash and making his company the most powerful.

“A lot of people say, 'I always knew Lucky Luciano as a very smooth, very elegant, very powerful man.'

For the story, “ Most Dangerous Game” I had one question. What kind of animal is being hunted in the story by General Zaroff? I think the animal that is being hunted is a hybrid of the Cape Buffalo and the jaguar. In the story General Zaroff said the jaguar is super fast and he needed a challenge.
In Richard Conell’s “The Most Dangerous Game”, Rainsford learned a hunter can be hunted. Connell’s use of foreshadowing makes the story much more interesting and gives it more suspense. First, When Whitney and Rainsford were talking about the island they said it was dangerous and that there were cannibals on the island (Conell 40).
