Review quote

A rousing tribute to the human spirit. -- SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE [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 Humanity's first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in Aurora. -- SPACE.COM 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
