Editorial Reviews

Star Hunter is a good reminder why Andre Norton is a legend in the science fiction and fantasy world. In this thrilling plot-driven tale, a teenage boy from another planet lands in Jumala, a jungle planet, where he must hide in order to survive from the natives of Jumala, a group of menacing aliens. The other-worldly characteristics will be familiar to Norton fans. In Star Hunter the listener will find ill-intentioned aliens, visionaries, and foretelling dreams, like in many of her other stories. The novella is short and entertaining. Jim Roberts's narration is careful and appropriately suspenseful.

Spell binder

Andre Norton is one of the greats of Science Fiction and this, like just about everything she wrote, is a spell-binding yard with a little food for thought thrown in. Good reading, too.

Action Oriented

What did you like best about Star Hunter? What did you like least?

This book is action oriented. If you are looking for in depth characterization or cerebral science fiction, this book is not it. Instead, it's a good action book involving people and space. A disgruntled guild spacer finds a crashed ship belonging to a very wealthy family. There were no survivors. He approaches a criminal mind with a plan to provide a substitute for a young family member in order to get access to those funds that the kid would inherit.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

This narrator is not an actor. Takes a couple of chapters to get accustomed to that since we are SO spoiled with actors doing many of Audible's titles. Stick with it. He has a good voice, good cadence and you get used to him within a couple of chapters.

Any additional comments?

This book was published in 1961. Parents shouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to their young teenaged scifi fans. This is a short book, just a bit longer than a novella.
