“The Most Dangerous Game” features as its main character a big-game hunter from New York, who becomes shipwrecked on an isolated island in the Caribbean, and is hunted by a Russian aristocrat.

Quotes

    "Ivan is an incredibly strong fellow," remarked the general, "but he has the misfortune to be deaf and dumb. A simple fellow, but, I'm afraid, like all his race, a bit of a savage."

    "Is he Russian?"

    "He is a Cossack," said the general, and his smile showed red lips and pointed teeth. "So am I."
