Hull Zero Three
A starship hurtles through the emptiness of space, its destination-unknown and its purpose-a mystery. One man wakes up 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 the woman he loved? What happened to Hull 03?

Bear does what he does best in this book, hard science fiction. Talks about the possible realities of life on a generational star ship without burying the reader in a tech. manual.

I haven't really been excited by Bear's work since about the turn of the millennium. Something has just seemed a little "missing" compared to his earlier books. Hull Zero Three, to me, seemed a lot like his earlier books. Maybe not some of the best, but at least comparable to Heads or Moving Mars. Its decent "meaty" hard science-fiction, giving consideration as to what would, most likely, be involved with interplanetary, and multi-generational, travel.
For myself, Bear's best quality is his ability to show the horror and wonder of science all at the same time. He comes through with that dichotomy again in this book.

Not a bad read, perhaps a tad dark, but intelligent plot.

A good book worth reading, but not one of Greg Bear's best works.

Not exactly edge of the seat thriller but interesting. When failure of imagination meets lack of conscience what results...

An interesting concept, but the execution was not what I expected for Greg Bear. Hull Zero Three is not up to the level of some of his other books like Darwin's Radio, Dead Lines or Blood Music.
