Summary
It has been almost two hundred years since the space ship left Earth. Several generations later, the nearly 2000 inhabitants of the ship have never lived on land. Their new home, their new planet is within sight. They have arrived at Aurora.
Critique
This thrilling space adventure is told from the point of view of the ship's artificial intelligence. While the story is rooted in hard science, the novel explores issues of human nature, social structures, and interpersonal relationships. A fun and thought-provoking read!
