Book discussion: Aurora - Kim Stanley Robinson

May 19, 2016

TV shows, movies, board games, where are the bloody books?! Alright alright geez.  

Aurora is the latest book by award winning author Kim Stanley Robinson which follows a generational space ship sent to colonise a distant planet.  Pfft, sounds easy right?  Weellll, maybe not.  
How did we enjoy this book?  What does this book say about the destiny of humanity?  How many tranquillisers did we have to give Barbara to stop her yelling "spaceships" repeatedly?  (a lot)    Listen to this episode for answers to these questions and more!

Big SPOILER warnings.  No safety in this one I'm afraid.  Enter at your peril!
