Synopsis

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
