Publisher 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.

SJAkimo ,

Haunting

Like all Greg Bear books, this one has layers of action, mystery, meaning, morality and scientific speculation. This one’s wrapped around a mystery that slowly unfolds into something philosophically horrific.

A very good read (and journey) the first time through, a great one the second time.

Short but good.

Not quite worth $9.99

Haunting

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.
