I read this short story in an English class, and it had the desired effect of chilling me to the bone.

If you're reading this for pleasure, beware: it is more of a horror story than an adventure. For that reason it's also hard to enjoy, much less read again. The very nature of it - humans hunting each other for pleasure - defies humanity. Like The Hunger Games, I don't think I could recommend this book to anyone without regretting it.

But despite the insanity, I appreciated Connell's writing ability. The story wouldn't have been so chilling if the author hadn't set the mood so vividly. He described the setting and the action in an appealing way. For that, I give the book two stars.

Kendra So you liked the writing itself, but were just scared by it.
