Quotes & Awards

  • "[A] heart-warming, provocative tale.”

    Scientific American

  • “[A] compelling plot, with its near-perfect marriage of the technical and the psychological and with its (mostly) endearing cast of characters…and the absolutely delightful and radically essential ship computer itself.”


  • "Aurora…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

  • “This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game…admirably stretches the limits of human imagination.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A compelling…argument against those who still dream of an interstellar manifest destiny.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “This is hard SF the way it’s mean to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully realized society.”


  • “Ali Ahn narrates the many dense and fascinating passages with the clipped and dispassionate tone of a computer—a style that makes complete sense since the story’s main character is ‘The Ship’s’ computer…Sci-fi at its best.”
