A starship hurtles through the emptiness of space. Its destination - unknown. Its purpose - a mystery.

Now, one man wakes up. Ripped from a dream of a new home - a new planet and the woman he was meant to love in his arms - he finds himself wet, naked, and freezing to death. The dark halls are full of monsters but trusting other survivors he meets might be the greater danger.

All he has are questions -- Who is he? Where are they going? What happened to the dream of a new life? What happened to Hull 03?

All will be answered, if he can survive the ship.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unusual book Unlike some of this author's books, this was a little different than many of them. But it was a book that I really enjoyed and nearly read in one setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weird, but good! This book is quite weird, very violent and the storyline is convoluted to say the least. Despite all that I devoured it in a day, I had to know what was going to happen and how it would end - so, it was a good book :) Not my favorite by Greg Bear, but well worth reading.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Creepy - haunts my dreams The number of books I wish I had not read I can count on one finger. I love generation ship tales and exploratory tales, but this story was so, bleak, so creepy - so ... naked - so full of nightmare horrors slinking around the corners of cold, naked corridors, that I can't get the images out of my head. Maybe that's the hallmark of a good horror story. Don't know. I just wish I could forget it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line Sci Fi Hull Zero Three was one of the best books I have read recently. It takes a bit of patience to understand that the heck is going on, but once it starts moving, it doesn't stop. I was drawn into this world and Greg Bear did an excellent job of puling you along from one terrible situation to the next. Listed as hard sci fi, the book can be a little heavy but it is very readable. Luckily it is also quite short so it doesn't become a burden like some books can. If you enjoy sci fi, horror, mystery genres I think this is an excellent choice. Don't expect heaps of action, it has heaps of excellent writing which is what should draw you in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original SciFi Really great story and highly original. It differs from Greg Bear's previous work but not in a bad way. I like generation ship stories and this is easily one of the best. Highly recommend this to space opera fans and SciFi readers alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maddeningly Wonderful Sci-fi meets action meets mystery meets horror as our protagonist is ripped into a world gone mad that he has no chance of understanding. We feel his frustration as he learns about his situation (it's supposed to be maddening). The conclusion was satisfying but not predictable. Greg Bear's narrative and descriptions were excellent and his characters were engaging. The speculative Sci-fi aspects of the story were consistent, plausible and enjoyably fresh. I thoroughly enjoyed it, never putting it down unless I had to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected A melancholy, odd book with some excellent ideas. It could do with a sequel and a prequel. I enjoyed the way it approached things in an unexpected manner, the whole book felt like a dream I think if Mr. Bear had knocked off 50 pages it could have scored 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very creative and engaging Enjoyed this one. Only read Darwin's radio by Bear previously and was pleasantly surprised by this one. A very imaginative story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes you Think This novel opened up like the great SF movie "Pandorum"; with a guy awakened from cryo-sleep to find his ship listless and inhabited by creatures of an unknown origin. But unlike the fast paced action film, Hull Zero Three becomes more cerebral and less focused on the insatiable monsters roaming the corridors of the dying ship. Instead our protagonist goes from one seemingly hapless survivor to another until finally meeting up with a group of misfits / semi-humans who each have a special talent (be it killing or philosophising). This group, determined to get to the mysterious Hull Zero Three, quickly discover that the only fully functional part of their ship is just as dangerous as the other areas. The book's conclusion sort of peters out, but the average reader will find that this keeps their mind guessing as to what is real and what is deadly.
