Transcript of The Ship Trip Island

"Off there to the right somewhere is a large island." The island where Rainsford swam toward the pistol sound he had heard. Where he had found General Zaroff 's palatial chateau that was set on a high cliffs. The Most Dangerous Game By Richard Connell "The old charts call it `Ship-Trap Island" General Zaroff's palatial chateau. "As he forged along he saw to his great astonishment that all the lights were in one enormous building--a lofty structure with pointed towers plunging upward into the gloom. His eyes made out the shadowy outlines of a palatial chateau; it was set on a high bluff, and on three sides of it cliffs dived down to where the licked greedy lips in the shadows." General Zaroff's had a huge house. The bed is big enough for six men. The type of house looks like it is for people like a Duke.The remarkable dining room was where General Zaroff and Rainsford had dinner. They had a conversation about General Zaroff's past, what he enjoys, and talked about the "game" General Zaroff created. General Zaroff stock his island by creating false channels. Hunting is what General Zaroff loves, and is best at. But he has been hunting for so long he got bored, because animals can't reason like humans. He lost interest in hunting animals some years ago. So in order to for General Zaroff to enjoy hunting again, he made up a game for himself. Zaroff stocked the island by creating a false channel to capture the victims of a shipwreck. j n "They indicate a channel," he said, "where there's none; giant rocks with razor edges crouch like a sea monster with wide-open jaws. They can crush a ship as easily as I crush this nut." The Death Swamp and quicksand is in the southeast end of the island. Rainsford agreed to play the "hunting game" with General Zaroff, instead of tortured by Ivan. In the middle of the game Rainsford got himself in a sticky situation when the ground started to feel softe under his feet and his foot start sinking. He realized he was in Death Swamp and it's quicksand.

This is also the place where one of General Zaroff's dogs died. Lazarus, which is the name of the dog, was going after a man from one of General Zaroff's previous game. "Then, as he stepped forward,his foot sank into the ooze. He tried to wrench it back, but the muck sucked viciously at his foot as if it were a giant leech. With a violent effort, he tore his feet loose. He knew where he was now. Death Swamp and its quicksand." Thanks for Watching!!! ^_^ By: Jenna Brookins
