In addition, while reading this novel any bookworm will fell as hunted by the novel. And when he come back to reality he will conclude the same as author resolved a hundred years ago: people can be transformed, people can change their characters, becoming better or worse, more or less evil persons. But there are not people who are always bad, always hunters or always good persons. There is a life which could transform the man.
Wild animals are often beyond man's actions. Wild animals are hunting for basic existence in order to survive: for food, to protect their cubs... They defend their territory and often in the groups secure themselves from other enemies. Even piranhas do not kill on a whim, just differently perceive the threat from the enemy.
On the other hand, as described in the novel, human consciousness is vulnerable to the transformations - as the people actually spend their whole lives playing instead of surviving. This game sometimes is in the favor of men, when they are the ones who are hunting, but sometimes is the benefit of those who are hunted.
As people represent the highest beings, their role of predators is reflected in their superiority over the rest of the living world. Although many studies confirm that humans are at “the top of the food chain”, it turns out we are actually somewhere in the middle.
On the other hand, human superiority is reflected not by the place that man occupies in the food chain, but in his need to demonstrate his invincibility using various "sports" games in which animals are executed.
The only way to understand the paradox of a sports’ hunting, where men hunt for their own fun, gaining trophies and hardening of their status in the society is to give them the chance to be hunted. As the main protagonist of this novel, was the case of the same most dangerous game, he certainly felt even for a moment as the animals in the same situation. And he could understand how animals suffered until he acquires the points which are described in many books and make him famous in “best hunters of the world”. Yet, this does not mean that this situation in which he found himself hunted by equally superior man, made him wise up and change his attitude.
People perceive their existence on earth as the most important position on the top compared to the entire flora and fauna. Even man does not stop there. He leads the war and try to tame the nature, changing her primary role. In the end, man will spend his whole life playing different games rather than surviving. But because of transformation of a person's character man will not always be in a position to realize that he overdid it.
