Suspenseful Story ComponentsIn the story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell there are many suspenseful components The author creates these suspenseful parts with using characterizations or misleading plots These components take part all throughout the story and make a big impact on the story The first example I found of suspense is in the beginning of the story when Rainsford tried to reach for his pipe on the boat and fell off He leaped upon the railing to balance himself there to get better elevation his pipe striking a rope was knocked from his mouth He lunged for it a short hoarse cry was pinched short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea closed over his head This whole scene was very suspenseful in two specific ways The first way it is suspenseful is when Rainsford is leaning over on the railing he made a very imprudent decision by leaning over the railing Anything could have happened there many would assume that he could have simply fallen into the sea with it being dark outside It took a twist when he fell because his pipe was stuck in a rope The second way I found this scene suspenseful is where it explains how Reinsford has fallen into the blood warm waters This creates suspense because it hints that the sea he has fallen into is clearly not a good place to be It makes the reader question if next he will end up on an island or possibly deadThe second example I found that created a suspenseful twist is in the middle of the story when Rainsford is told by General Zaroff that he is going to take part in a three day hunting trip where he will be the one hunted You dont mean cried RainsfordMy dear fellow said the general have I not told you I always mean what I say about hunting This part of the story
