Rainsford had fallen off the yacht and he was now alone in the ocean with nothing.He swam to the island Ship trap island..
He got to the island and went into the jungle searching for someone or some shelter to keep him safe.
He found a house in the middle of the island he knocked on the door and Ivan answered .Why is someone living on an island in the middle of the ocean.And why was it called Ship-trap island?
The general invited Rainsford inside and they had a meal after that he showed Rainsford to his room and told him about a strange new animal he had found that was easy to catch
"I had to invent a new animal to hunt... I wanted the ideal animal to hunt ...it must have courage, and, above all it must be able to reason."(Connell, page 7)
"My dear fellow have I not told you what I say about hunting...You'll find this game worth playing .Your brain against mine.Your woodwork against mine your strength and stamina against mine."(Connell page 11)
