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 Zero Three?
All will be answered, if he can survive the ship.
Hull Zero Three is an edge-of-your-seat thriller set in the darkest reaches of space.

This book takes the listener on a journey of discovery through the hull of a colony spaceship in crisis. Along the way there are many clues, but they only become meaningful as the story unfolds. This is a book you have to read (or hear) more than once, with the second journey through its unfolding world even richer than the first. Highly recommended.
The narration was fine, but I just couldn't get into the story itself. It was trying too hard to be metaphysical. I spent most of my time trying to understand what happened than actually enjoying it. The only thing I could tell you that might help make it more understandable, is that despite all the metal, the ship is actually mostly organic.
This book should not be read by anybody. Greg Bear needs to take a basic college level English class.
No, Greg Bear' sentences tend to be fragmentary and lack complexity.
It was alright. The performance was not fantastic but it was not under whelming either.
Disappointment. Most of the characters in this book are clueless but then magically gain insight into their predicament.
I wanted this book to be much better but it just did not measure up to any real writing standards. The main character would not know what certain words meant and then he would go on to describe their meaning. There was not enough of a back story and I did not care anything for the characters. To be fair they were expendable clones that had been created thousands of times and were on a repeating cycle of death and not understanding what they were doing.
I stopped listening to the book half way though. It was boring beyond belief.
I have read many of Greg Bear's novels and was very excited to dive into this one. Alas, the narrator (Dan John Miller) was not to my liking. He tried far too hard and it showed. And i mean awful.
