The Most Dangerous Game | [Richard Cornell]

The Most Dangerous Game

Why do you suppose some combat veterans give up the sport of hunting? Is it because they gain empathy with the hunted, or hunting a prey less cunning than they has lost its allure. Richard Connell, in this short story “The Most Dangerous Game” takes us where the hunter becomes the hunted. This hunter is not being hunted by a beast less cunning or calculating than he is, like a lion or a tiger. No, this hunter is a master at his craft, crueler and only slightly better armed than he is.

Publisher's Summary

Why do you suppose some combat veterans give up the sport of hunting? Is it because they gain empathy with the hunted, or hunting a prey less cunning than they has lost its allure. Richard Connell, in this short story “The Most Dangerous Game” takes us where the hunter becomes the hunted. This hunter is not being hunted by a beast less cunning or calculating than he is, like a lion or a tiger. No, this hunter is a master at his craft, crueler and only slightly better armed than he is.

This tale raises numerous questions, for example, where did that excellent fillet mignon come from, since General Zaroff lives in seclusion on an uncharted island in the Caribbean? He does, however, have a stock of the most dangerous prey locked up in his dungeon, one of which he releases occasionally and then hunts down, supposedly feeding the carcass to his hounds.

Let your imagination run wild while you enjoy this thrilling, chilling narrative.

    "Good presentation of a great story ..."

    I've loved this book since I stumbled upon it a number of years ago. I'm not usually a fan of short stories, but this one is so tightly plotted and suspenseful that it feels like you've finished an entire book by the time you're done. This reading is a good one - the narrator has a fairly deep and slightly rough voice that is a great match for the subject, and he rachets up the tension just enough as the story progresses. It's a great short listen!
