Publisher's Summary

American author Richard Connell wrote many novels, stories, and screenplays, but today is known primarily for his fascinating story, "The Most Dangerous Game", which to this day continues to be widely anthologized and read. The two main characters are and American big-game hunter who finds himself stranded on a remote island, and a Russian aristocrat who is also a hunter but, it turns out, one has some very strange ideas about that "sport".

This is an extremely suspenseful and action-packed yarn, but it also raises questions about the nature of violence and cruelty and the ethics of hunting for sport. The story won the prestigious O. Henry Memorial Award for short fiction in 1924.

    What made the experience of listening to The Most Dangerous Game the most enjoyable?

    Ran Alan Ricard had a great voice for this story and my students appreciated hearing the story read by a male rather than a female voice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Most Dangerous Game?

    The most memorable moments of the story for my students are the suspense of the hunt and the surprise ending of the story.


    Have you listened to any of Ran Alan Ricard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not listened to any or Ran Alan Richard's other performances before.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am very familiar with the story, since I have taught it over many years but, it was nice to have someone other than myself read the very masculine story. My students however, were very attentive as they read along.
