Quote #4

The hunter had his nerve with him to tackle it with a light gun. It's clear that the brute put up a fight. (1.44)

Well, Rainsford hasn’t really matched up the whole weapon prey thing, but he is able to deduce a few clues from the scene of the crime.

Quote #5

"Ivan is an incredibly strong fellow," remarked the general, "but he has the misfortune to be deaf and dumb. A simple fellow, but, I'm afraid, like all his race, a bit of a savage." (1.58)

Well Zaroff just picks and chooses his savages. What’s a little confusing here is that they are both Cossacks, so if Ivan is a savage doesn’t that make Zaroff one, too? Or is that the whole point of the remark?

Quote #6

About the hall were mounted heads of many animals—lions, tigers, elephants, moose, bears; larger or more perfect specimens Rainsford had never seen. (1.65)

Zaroff’s trophy room is impressive. In a move we totally approve of, Rainsford declines the invitation to see the room with the mounted human heads.
