Whatever you do, you HAVE to read this story!  It is awesome! My key points will not give anything away, but this is a story that you should not pass up!

1.  Rainsford hear a scream, yet can't tell what type of animal it was after hearing pistol shots after falling overboard.

2. Once on land, Rainsford find the place where the prey had been shot the night before.

3. Rainsford knocks on the door of a creepy house and is met by a large man pointing a revolver at him.

4.  General Zaroff comes down the hall a moment later to greet him and tell him how honored he is to have such a great hunter in his home.

5.  Rainsford is led to a room to change clothes, then returns with the large man (Ivan, Zaroff's servant) to dine with Zaroff.

6.  Rainsford admires Zaroff's collection of heads on the wall of the game he has shot, especially the Cape Buffalo.

7.  Zaroff tells Rainsford he had become bored of hunting as he always caught his prey.  But now he had invented a new animal to hunt.  This interests Rainsford since he is such a big game hunter himself.

8.  When Rainsford realizes the true prey, he tells Zaroff he is tired and goes to bed.
