Hyperion af Dan Simmons (1989)

  1. 110
    Klit af Frank Herbert (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: It is difficult not to compare Dune and Hyperion, even though both series have major differences in terms of tone, style and philosophy. Those are two long, epic, elaborate and very ambitious sci-fi masterpieces where religion plays a key role. I would highly recommend the fans of one to check out the other.… (mere)

It caught my interest early and carried it well for much of the book. I lost interest during the Consul's story, and gave up completely in the last 100 pages. ( )

Simmons has a way with words, crafting worlds and characters with expertise unseen in most other authors. When I read 'Song of Kali', he was dealing with an already established world, building on it with fantastical horror elements I wouldn't have thought of. In 'Hyperion', he creates a compelling world - nay, a universe - that is full of living, breathing people.

The narrative is cut into novella-sized stories that provide windows into this world. Each of them, without going into detail, paints a world where humanity has solved old problems and created new ones. Simmons forges humanity's galactic travels with time debt, religious values, varying cultures, and the old colonial spirit, creating a potent cocktail filled with capitalism, human folly, and devotion, among others.

While I was expecting seven stories, I got six brilliant ones. They're full of twists and turns in worlds that seem familiar yet strange. The consul's story deals with preserving nature in an increasingly capitalistic world, while the colonel's with intimacy and love; the detective's story deals with AI and recreating consciousness, the poet's with nostalgia and muses. The academic's story is a heartbreaking take on Fitzgerald's "Benjamin Button" short story. Meanwhile, the father's story handles issues of faith and resurrection in a world that has moved away from the old religions.

Each of these narratives is beautifully told. There's very little overlap between them, especially in terms of action. Tying them together is the Shrike, a nightmarish creation that's horrifying to visualize. But their appearances are few, giving the author the chance to flesh out the characters.

'Hyperion' was a surprisingly quick read considering just how heavy the narrative is. It's the mark of a gifted writer to create complex worlds without getting bogged down by the details. Simmons, without surprise, has created another five-star story. If you get the chance to read only one sci-fi series in your lifetime, this is it. ( )

Time of Death is at the end of CD 1 ( of 18 ):
So many people seem to like it, I thought it would be something I'd like also. :/ I feel kinda pissed, kinda dumb.

Prologue was interesting, a bit confusing. For one reason, who would name a character console? (on audio that is what it sounded like) but I figured it would sort itself out as I kept going. (I even listened to most of the prologue twice. Second time it made so much more sense :)

Premise starts off good and then I hear the priest's story... wtf! Like I am to retain any of that, with the whole thing being an out of context, with unfamiliar worlds and terms, and not related to anything I read up to that point? This will be repeated for each "Pilgrim" AND the story ends on a cliff hanger... Nope, not interested.

Mysteries, religion, character driven stories that are started in an odd spot, and most operatic science fiction are not my preferred reading so I guess it's no surprise. I won't rate it, I'll leave that for people that like this type of storytelling. People like Jo Walton: https://www.tor.com/2009/05/27/better-to-travel-hopefully-dan-simmons-hyperion/

Maybe if I had known more about it before going in, or maybe if I didn't try on audio or maybe if he didn't start with the Priest's story.... maybe I could of enjoyed the story, maybe not.

After recently reading another of Dan Simmons books (recommended to me, Drood, released in 2010), I wanted to try one of the author’s earlier series which begins with Hyperion published in 1989. It’s a classic first book in what becomes four books, although originally it was to be just two books in the series. Hyperion, the first book, received both the Hugo and the Locus awards in 1990. The book starts as a pilgrimage of seven (a sacred number!) travelers going to the planet Hyperion in search of The Shrike, hiding in the Time Tombs, to both solve riddles and to investigate the strange event anomalies experienced. Each traveler has a story and an agenda, much like a Canterbury Tales unfolding, each story offers more clues behind the conflict, revealing who may be desperate enough to lose (or win) humanity for The Church of the Shrike. On the eve of Armageddon, the voyage becomes a journey exposing secrets within the church and conflicting sides could unravel all of time before the final answer is revealed. ( )

I liked most of the stories, but I really didn't get interested until the end and now I'm reading the second book in the series. ( )

The Hegemony Consul sat on the balcony of his ebony spaceship and played Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C-Sharp Minor on an ancient but well-maintained Steinway while great, green, saurian things surged and bellowed in the swamps below. (Prologue)
The Consul awoke with a peculiar headache, dry throat, and sense of having forgotten a thousand dreams which only periods in cryogenic fugue could bring.

Several translations of the Hyperion series were published as multiple volumes There are no equivalent English volumes. Do not combine these with any works other than the equivalent partial volume in another language.

The ISBNs here are not always correctly matched up to the books. Use both the title and ISBN to figure out what the actual work is. Also note that the title sometimes contains the volume number in the entire Hyperion series (with or without multiple parts).
