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.

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.
