An accessible novel packed with big ideas, wonders, jeopardy and, at the end, a real emotional punch
A magnificent piece of writing . . . perhaps his best ever
This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game
If Interstellar left you wanting more, then this novel might just fill that longing
Aurora is Robinson's best book yet . . . Heart-wrenching, provocative
Robinson creates an absolutely convincing population of generations yielding to generations . . . [A] near-perfect marriage of the technical and the psychological
Another masterpiece of future-building from Robinson . . . compelling drama
The kind of speculation that he is quite brilliant at . . . Magnificent
The best book I read in 2015
A rousing tribute to the human spirit.
[Robinson is] a rare contemporary writer to earn a reputation on par with earlier masters such as Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke.
Humanity's first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in Aurora.
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.
