More science than fiction

The amount of research that went into this book — agriculture, biology, gravitational computation, ecology — is really impressive. Flat characters, that are a bit unlikeable, and stale dialogue become a bit of a distraction at times — but a computer AI that is completely lovable and an exceptional ending make any small matters seem insignificant.

Aurora

The book raises legitimate ethical and logistical questions about the project of interstellar colonization by humans. Incredibly well researched in a huge number of areas. One reviewer that I’ve read so far complained about the narrative voice… I found it convincing as what one would experience from an AI gradually learning how humans tell stories. The final chapter, not in the AI’s POV, is pure Robinson.

Depressing, Depressing, Depressing

What was Kim Stanley Robinson going through in his personal life when he wrote this book?
What a dark, dystopic, depressing story full of death, failure, loss and hopelessness for the future of the human race.
A complete opposite of his wonderful Mars trilogy.
