Whitney and Rainsford are on their way to Rio. They see an island on their way. When they see it they wonder what it is.
Whitney is asleep and Rainsford is out on the deck and he hear gun shots. He stand up on the rail to look and his pip falls out of his mouth and then he reaches to grab it then falls into the ocean. When he is in the ocean he swims to the island to follow the gunshots and he sees boot footprints in the mud and follows them and he see a giant house
He knocks on the door to see a Giant man named Ivan and then another man comes down the stairs and he noticed Rainsford because he is a famous hunter. He lets him in and he talks about this game where he hunts people and since Rainsford is a famous hunter he asks if he wants to be hunted and if he wins he can leave the island. Rainsford agrees because he had asked to leave the island and this is his only opportunity
Rainsford leaves the shack and he has to live out the three days so he can leave the island. All he get is a hunting knife. Through out the hunt on the 2nd day General Zoraf releases dogs to find him. Rainsford sets up a trap to kill the dogs and Ivan . When the dogs walk over the trap the trap kills them. After he hides out the rest of the hunt.
When they get back to the house he see's General Zoraf by the bed and he walks over to him. Then General Zaroff says one of us is going to be dead and one of us is going to be sleeping in this bed then Rainsford stabs him
