I read this book in school as a child. I have been looking for it for years now as I had faint memories of the tales of Rainsford. After reading this I got a sense of happiness to know it was the book I remembered. I was a little disappointed in the ending. It seemed to end somewhat abruptly. The writing style is great, the characters were developed well, and the plot is intriguing. I recommend reading this book. I would implore someone to write an updated version with a little more depth into the hunt and help the joy of this book last a bit longer.
A Most DANGEROUS GAME
The distinction of instinct, reason, survival, and morality. “A Most Dangerous Game” is an amusing, philosophical tale of a breakneck hunt with surprises and twists.
This was a really good short story. I do not like the ending though. I wish it wasn't 99 cents. I think it should be free cause you can obviously look it up online and paste it in your notes.
