On the world called Hyperion beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man there waits the creature called the Shrike There are those who worship it There are those who fear it And there are those who have vowed. The updates I posted while reading this book pretty much capture how I felt the entire way so rather than just rewrite them I'll focus on my overall impression upon finishing Hyperion It's about the journey it's not about the destinationI was deeply disappointed that there was no resolution once the pilgrims arrived at the Time Tombs but I don't see how there could have been a satisfying resolution without adding at least another 100 pages to the book So I just reminded myself that this book was about the journey and not the destinationI almost wish they'd left the entire OusterSpyGalaxy is on the edge of Armageddon story out and simply focused on the pilgrims and their story letting their individual tales hint at the wider galaxy and its various conflicts I guess the Consul's story wouldn't have been as meaningful without the greater understanding we got about the Hegemony and the Ousters but if not knowing that meant not having this disappointing unresolved feeling that I have right now I just finished the book a few minutes ago I think it would have been a fair trade If the whole thing is telling us about these people going to see The Shrike fading out just before they do is like dropping Luke into the trench on the Death Star and never letting us know what happens nextI understand that much of the resolution I currently find lacking is provided in Book Fall of Hyperion but every book even those that are part of a series should provide an entirely satisfying experience to someone who reads them in isolation of the other volumes To that end Hyperion succeeds I think even if it doesn't tell us what happens when they finally get to the Shrike or if they even do as long as we accept that it is about the journey and not the destinationI still loved it I still thought it was a wonderfully written novel that absolutely deserved the Hugo I wish I could give it 35 stars but thinking back on how much I enjoyed it while I was reading it instead of how unresolved I feel at this moment I'm bumping it up to 4

HyperionS set forth on a final voyage to Hyperion seeking the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives Each carries a desperate hope and a terrible secret And one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands. Deep in the shady sadness of a vale Far sunken from the healthy breath of mornHyperionImagine a universe where the Earth has been destroyed and humanity is spread out across hundreds of planets Combine the artful poetry of John Keats with a science fiction retelling of the Canterbury Tales Add tons of references to the myths and legends of the three Abrahamic religions and what you have is Hyperion A masterpiece of literatureSeven pilgrims come together aboard the treeship Yggdrasil to make a journey to the remote planet Hyperion outside the authority and jurisdiction of the Hegemony of Man Each and every one of them has been specifically chosen by the Church of Final Atonement to undertake a pilgrimage to the enigmatic creature known only as the Shrike And each and every one of them has been chosen because of a personal connection with the planet itself Thus begins a uest to uncover the lost secrets hidden within the Valley of the Time Tombs a place from which no pilgrim has ever come back aliveThis book deserves to be hailed alongside the greatest works of science fiction While Dan Simmons’ writing is not something memorable in itself he certainly makes up for it with the creation of his characters his setting and most importantly his storyThe most fascinating part of the book is definitely the mystery of the Time Tombs themselves huge structures that supposedly move backwards through time originating in a distant future Thus the book explores the concept of time itself and the unforeseen conseuences the effects of the Tombs have had and will have on the pilgrims' lives and the universe as a whole Hyperion is a collection of short stories with an overarching frame story than an actual novel That structure is part of what makes the book so much of a joy to read Every chapter has one of the pilgrims tell his or her tale to the others in order to share information that will be vital for their survival and the success of their mission And each tale brings the group closer to the Valley of the Time Tombs where the Shrike is waiting for themThe Priest the Soldier the Poet the Scholar the Detective the Consul and the Templar All of them with a with a story to tell and a part to play Still singing loudly not looking back matching stride for stride they descended into the valley
