Publisher Comments:

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.

Sheila Deeth, January 6, 2014 (view all comments by Sheila Deeth)
A novel that keeps you guessing, a narrator whose scattered memories bear little relation to his present situation, a space-ship that might be symbol or reality, and a wealth of characters who aren’t quite human but might not be anything else; it would be hard to imagine a more unsettling start or setting for a novel. But Greg Bear’s Hull Zero Three keeps readers glued to the page, providing just enough consistency and detail to promise a genuine resolution.

The story has a computer-game feeling, with dark corridors, surprise scares waiting around corners, and sudden telling details that tie it all together. But everything is so beautifully and convincingly described, it makes a thoroughly enjoyable read. Cleverly three-dimensional and absorbingly real, it offers much more than any game, keeping the reader guessing, wondering, choosing and deciding as the tale progresses. Te freezing cold of space will have you shivering in your armchair, and the shape and design of the giant spaceship almost paints itself on the movie screen of the mind.

A well-hidden mystery blends science and human error into a shape resembling myth as the tale comes together, making this a fascinating, fast-flowing novel exploring space and human nature and more. Highly recommended for fans of science fiction, and ponderers of the fate of humankind.
