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.

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.
