He decided to enjoy the evening and explore a little. He found himself overlooking the ocean. While he was admiring the view he leaned on the railings and slipped; falling into the water. Even though he was calling for help, no one was able to hear him. As he is calling for help he hears a gun shot and swam toward the sound. He ended up on an island. Once he found himself on the island he came into contact with General Zaroff. The two began conversing and getting to know each other. As they became to know one another General found out the he was familiar with Rainsford. He had read some parts of Rainsford book hunting snow leopards in Tibet. Rainsford was impressed that General Zaroff read his book. Rainsford had become very comfortable. He had no idea what was in store for him. General Zaroff explained why he had become so bored of hunting and killing animals. He then informed Rainsford that he decided to hunt and kill human beings.
