Mini-review: The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell


5 stars


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


There is no greater bore than perfection.

Sometimes these kinds of weird, old school, random books really hook me, but I can’t explain why. This is one of them. This story has the most simple of plot lines, yet it does so well to inflict fear and excitement into the reader.

I loved the writing. I loved the tension. I loved the plot. I loved the psychopath. I loved the ending.

I’m going toΒ haveΒ to watch the film version of this now and do a comparison post.

  1. My dad said the movie (the old, classic one), didn’t do the short story justice. Mainly because they felt the need to include a female character who didn’t contribute to the plot, like a lot of old movies. 😒 But the radio version I heard first, and is an amazing adaptation! However, it’s very hard to find, since it’s an old radio recording. (Sigh). But if you can find it, I highly recommend it!
