Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“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
“Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game.” Iain M. Banks on 2312
“In his vibrant, often moving new novel, 2312, Robinson’s extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story. […] Perhaps Robinson’s finest novel, 2312 is a treasured gift to fans of passionate storytelling; readers will be with Swan and Wahram in the tunnel long after reaching the last page.” LA Times
“Inherently epic stuff… expect interplanetary strife, conspiracies, more big ideas than most SF authors pack into a trilogy… [yet] this is ultimately in so many respects a book about Earth… a wise and wondrous novel.” SFX on 2312
“[A] heart-warming, provocative tale.” Scientific American 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 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
“A monumental tour-de-force…Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets…An amazing accomplishment.” Robert Crais, #1 New York Times bestselling author
