    1. I read this in its entirety in a two-plus-hour period, which is a testament to either my reading stamina or Andre Norton's skill at drawing in the reader. It could also be that my edition is a 130-page novella with ridiculously large print for a paperback. Norton is kind of a legend in the golden age of science fiction. She is perhaps best known for her Witchworld fantasy/sf series, of which she wrote numerous books. "Eye of the Monster" is not part of that series. It's a pretty straightforward [...]


    2. I read this a long time ago and I remember it being the first Andre Norton book that I was ever a bit disappointed with. It just seemed very slight. If you're a Norton fan you will probably enjoy it. I did at some level, but it didn't match up against Galactic Derelict, or The Zero Stone, or Breed to Come.



    3. Very, very, very short. Most of the elements of the author's usual wonderful sci fi adventures are present, but there is hardly space to explore any of them. Not sure what happened here, but still worth reading to me as I adore all the author's books.


    4. I'd like to say that this is the worst book Norton ever wrote. I can't, however. The most I CAN say is that the first few chapters are the worst of her work--after that, I gave up in disgust, and sold my copy. Maybe it improves further in--but I'll never know.





    5. Fun, quick read, but definitely one of those types of scifi novels of the post-war that would later be criticized for thinking the future in colonial terms.
