The Most Dangerous Game has been around a long while and has been redone in one way or another in books, plays, or movies for years. But, none compare to the original. I think I'm in agreement with the story editor about the ending. I recall thinking it was clever the first time I read it, but it really is too abrupt. The newly added content at the conclusion of original story is promising and seamless.

So he clams himself down and starts swimming towrds the islaind. When he done swimming he finds himself on ship trap island. Buy the book and see if he survies the game. This book gave the girl who wrote the hungre games the idea.

Although the ending is a little abrupt, I have enjoyed this story since seventh grade. The tricks that Rainsford adapts are similar to the technical jargon I read in Star Wars books that sometimes makes only a little sense, but adds flavor to the book, like a certain spice or taste of culture and background.

I read this back in school, over 20 years ago, and it has stuck with me all of these years. Although it is a quick read, its ability to captivate and entertain should not be underestimated.
