Review quote

An accessible novel packed with big ideas, wonders, jeopardy and, at the end, a real emotional punch * SFX * Robinson creates an absolutely convincing population of generations yielding to generations . . . [A] near-perfect marriage of the technical and the psychological * NPR Books * Aurora is a magnificent piece of writing, certainly Robinson's best novel since his mighty Mars trilogy, perhaps his best ever -- Adam Roberts, Guardian Aurora is the best book I read in 2015 -- Cory Doctorow This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game * Publishers Weekly - starred review * Aurora is Robinson's best book yet . . . Heart-wrenching, provocative * Scientific American * Aurora is a brilliant book. It is a challenging book. It is one that I savored, that I devoted all my attention towards, that I loved with every fiber of my being. It is one of the best books of science fiction I've read, and the best book I've read all year * Book Smugglers * If Interstellar left you wanting more, then this novel might just fill that longing * io9.com *show more
