A good, quick read,
This review is from: Hull Zero Three (Paperback)
As others have said, this is disorientating and difficult to follow at first, but clearly that is deliberate and reflects the mindset of the narrator, so can be forgiven.
The story involves a lot of running through passages and escaping from attackers - this feels a lot like a computer game. There isn't really any characterisation, which adds to this effect.
I skipped over most of the descriptions of the ship interiors as just too difficult to visualise.
This all sounds a bit critical, but I did enjoy the read. It didn't take very long, and was interesting enough to keep me turning the pages. The issue about what might happen if a seed ship ends up somewhere where there was already intelligent life was very good and was new to me.
I thought the end was weak and didn't make sense. To explain why would involve spoilers...
