    Not bad

    The story itself is quite nice and well written, if slightly dated. Or perhaps you need to be younger to appreciate the story and ignore the fact that a lot of it has become cliche ("A mysterious island, shrouded in fear, evil, and darkness" etc.)

    As for the narrator, I must say I didn't care for his performance. It's not that he does anything "wrong": his voice is pleasant, his diction is flawless. But to my taste it was overacted. Mr. Harrison simply expresses too much emotion in his narration. As always, this is a matter of taste, but that's what I thought.

    All in all, well worth getting, especially for this price.

    One of the best short stories - ever!

    I remember reading this many years ago. Always curious to see if perceptions change over 35+ years, I gave this one another try. I can report here that it is as good now as then!

    Harrison does a good job narrating the story, so don't let the new format put you off.

    For the price, you can't go wrong having this in your library.

    A most thrilling classic masterpiece!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Most Dangerous Game to be better than the print version?

    Hummm. No. Just as good.

    What other book might you compare The Most Dangerous Game to and why?

    This is vintage perfection written for the discerning mind. Publisher's Weekly probably would reject it as "old fashioned" because it doesn't begin with a chase scene, or something. You want new fashion? Go see Star Trek. You want perfection like Doyle, Wells, Kipling, or Verne, this is your ticket to satisfaction! It will knock your socks off and make your head spin like no other story.

    What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

    Excellent. None better.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ...in the tree.

    Any additional comments?

    Worth every cent, every minute devoted.

    A TRUE COSMOPOLITE

    YOU HAVE SOME WONDERFUL HEADS HERE
    This is one of the stories, that is so popular, that you have seen a version or two of it. Not all versions are the same. I know I saw this on Alfred Hitchcock and then Star Trek has done several versions, etc. Even so, it still has a trick or two up it's sleeve and you may be surprised in how it ends. It is well written and is worth one hour of your time. Harrison does a lot of these older works and he is good.

    Classic example of a surface level story.

    Guy lands on island. Guy finds other guy that like to hunt people. Hunt ensues. Hunt ends.

    Life is a game

    And those that play must play according to the rules. I read this because it is alluded to in the allegory The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger. I believe this is alluded to both in the vehicle that DB drives and Holden talking to his history teacher Mr Spencer. I also think the black panther is a very interesting illusion... mentioned in James Joyce Ulysses.

    The narrator was both informative and excellent performance! Thank you!

    Horror with Patina

    It is a classic and I thought I have to read it.

    Some of the classics are ageless and regardless how long ago, they were written, they still ring true and touch you deeply. 'The most dangerous game' is not really one of them.

    In the story, Rainsford, an author of hunting books, falls of a yacht and saves his life by swimming to a mysterious island. He hopes to find help at the residence of General Zaroff, a rich Russian nobleman and passionate hunter. General Zaroff has hunted all over the world and all the game, you could think of. To make hunting a real thrill again, he transformed the island into a hunting ground for the most intelligent prey, human beings. Of course you can imagine, where this is going now.

    Of course short stories leave little room for detailed descriptions and background information, but the way this story is told, leaves too many open questions and implausibilities. The story does not ring true and sounds too fabricated.

    I can't help it, I expected more of such a famous piece of literature.
