The rising action begins with Rainsford trying not to drown in the ocean and making it to the island and Zaroff's Gothic mansion. Rainford meets Zaroff and finds out he is to be hunted and the hunt begins, leading to Rainsford's fight for his life in the jungle.  The falling action seems to take place right along with the climax during which Rainsford is waits for Zaroff in his bedroom and the two fight to the death.  The story ends with the reader assuming that Rainsford apparently wins the fight and gets to sleep in Zaroff's bed. We can assme Zaroff is dead. Brenda
