The POV is 3rd Person Limited

We know that it is 3rd person Limited, because it is only showing Sanger Rainsford's thoughts and feelings. It has dialogue of other people, but not their other feelings. It also uses the pronouns of he, she, and him.

Summary

Sanger Rainsford was a big game hunter who fell off a boat, and swam to a mysterious island. On the island he finds tracks, and follows them to a house. When he gets there, he meets General Zaroff who reveals his plan to hunt Sanger down. In the hunt, Rainsford gets a head start, and has to survive for 3 days. He does, and ends up killing the general in his own bedroom.

Critique

The Most Dangerous Game is a very interesting book. We thought that the book was very well thought out and had good structure. It kept us wanting to read more of it. Some parts of it were kind of hard to understand, but overall, it was a great book.
