"I am no robber. I fell off a yacht. My name is Sanger Rainsford of New York City."
I am General Zaroff
Hunting? Great Guns, Zaroff, what you speak of is murder!
General laughed with entire good nature
Rainsford and General Zaroff meet after Rainsford falls off the yacht and Ivan answers the door. The general is very excited to meet Rainsford and go hunting with him. Little does Rainsford know, Zaroff doesn't hunt animals.
This is where Rainsford finds out that Zaroff's "big game" is humans. Zaroff also continues talking about how Rainsford and himself will go hunting tommorow and he will provide Rainsford with food, clothing, and a knife. Rainsford still continues to be disturbed that he hunts humans.
Rainsford and Zaroff hunt for three days. Rainsford makes a trap so the general gets confused but then the general finds him in the tree but walks away because he wants a challenge. The general is going to wait longer because he wants it to be more fun he doesn't just want to shot him and the game end.
Rainsford continues fighting for his life and decides to build a trap. He gets a big tree trunk and a small branch and a rope and ties a knife to it so it stabs the general. The general walks through it and gets hurt and then goes back to the castle to get help.
Rainsford goes back and grabs the knife and stabs the general to his death. Rainsford won the game when nobody else has before. In conclusion Rainsford is now alone with nobody on the whole island and the story stops there. We don't know what happens after this scene, will he turn into the new Zaroff?
