Description

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.

    Not quite worth $9.99

    This book has two components: a tricky little mystery play in which tantalizing things keep happening, but you can't quite figure out why until well towards the end, and a much more serious take on the morality of colonialism in its most extreme form. There's also the whole question of the meaning of life in it. It goes from mysterious and fascinating to disturbing and haunting.
  • Interesting read

    Great concept and a fun sci-fi read, I like the way the style of the writing starts out confused and gradually gets clearer as the main character starts to "wake up". However, one thing that distracted from the story was the way the author focused on how The Teacher physically moved around the environment; it almost became a subplot. The book is like Pandorum meets Pitch Black at its best in the sci-fi style themes, at the end of the book the story becomes a bit lost but if you stick it out, it is a good wrap up.
  • Fantastic, strange and frightening

    A dark, weird and thoroughly engaging story about how the best laid colonization plans can go awry. Creepy stuff that haunts my daydreams.
  • Disappointing

    Good start, but it dissolves into drivel. Read the first two thirds them put it down.
  • Good Story

    I enjoyed the story and loved the underlying ideas. I think the only flaw was that the story kind of compressed and there could have been some more story in there. I hope the author sees the missing stories and writes them as well. I would love to hear more about the battle and supernova not to mention the purpose of the mysterious silver "alien". More please.
  • Quiet, noble story, with great flashes of marvelous action...

    If you are ready to read something different from the countless thousands of previous hard SF speculations on slow ships to the stars, this is it. I'm a pretty voracious SF/Fantasy reader, 55 years old, reading 80% SF since I was 11 and discovered Clarke after a recommendation from my mother. My favorite authors are all hard SF; Heinlein, Clarke etcetera... This is a great work of art, truly a terrific achievement from Greg Bear. Action fans will not be disappointed, yet neither will those who crave emotion. If you've never read true speculative "hard" SF (fiction that really tries to reveal a possible future based on current science), Hull Zero Three will create an impossible standard that will have you disparaging books for years. Read and delight, is my advice.

    This book had a great start with lots of mystery and disturbing action. Unfortunately the action soon ends and the plot is revealed. At that point the book winds on explaining in far too much detail "why".

    Honestly I have not read the book but it sounds like a rip off of the movie Pandorum
  • Loved It.

    A thoroughly entertaining read. Not too heavy, not too light with a brisk pace. Easy to consume in a single night. However the basics of the plot reminded me of a scifi flick that I rented about a year ago...wish I could remember the title...
