Product description

Review

"A rousing tribute to the human spirit."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"The thrilling creation of plausible future technology and the grandness of imagination...magnificent."
--Sunday Times

"[Robinson is] a rare contemporary writer to earn a reputation on par with earlier masters such as Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke."
--Chicago Tribune

"If Interstellar left you wanting more, then this novel might just fill that longing."
--io9

"Aurora may well be Robinson's best novel...breaks us out of our well-ingrained, supremely well-rehearsed habits of apocalypse - and lets us see the option of a different future than permanent, hopeless standoff."
--Los Angeles Review of Books

"Humanity's first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in Aurora."
--SPACE.com

"[A] near-perfect marriage of the technical and the psychological."
--NPR Books

"[A] heart-warming, provocative tale."
--Scientific American

"This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game... [A] poignant story, which admirably stretches the limits of human imagination."
--Publishers Weekly

"This is hard SF the way it's mean to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully realized society. Robinson is an acknowledged sf master-his Mars trilogy and his stand-alone novel 2312 (2012) were multiple award winners and nominees-and this latest novel is sure to be a big hit with devoted fans of old-school science fiction."
--Booklist
