Review:

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

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

"[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 on Aurora

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

"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 on Aurora

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

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

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

"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 on 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."--Booklist on Aurora
