Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Landon Reed
This is a classic short story about hunting the ultimate game. We've probably all read this in high school and it stills works as a story. The bonus teaser story for the author's coming sequel picks up at the end of Connell's story without any hiccups, very important if you are trying to follow an original act. I got some good chuckles out of the author's words. The guy has the guts to write that the story basically didn't wow him and STILL he wanted to do more with it. I've read his other compa

    Superb Little Story

    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.

    Overview

    (I'm not elaborate so sorry if this overview looks strange.) The book, 'The Most Dangerous Game' is about a guy who is shiprecked on an island with another guy (ooooh. Scary, right?) who wants to play a Dangerous Game. Guy #1 gets a knife and a water bottle and sets off into the jungle. Guy #2 tracks guy #1 and if he catches 1, 1 is killed. If 2 doesnt find 1 by the next day, 1 gets to kill 2. All in all, I liked it. Read it. ~D. M. J.~

    Epic plot with a great twist as an ending. Great short work that reverses the roles on an experienced hunter. Great read.

    I enjoy this short story

    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.
