I didn't read others' reviews of this book until just now (to avoid spoilers), and I'm a bit surprised by the amount of negativity that I found. While it's true that this book uses a different literary style than either of the first 2 (which themselves used different literary styles), I rather enjoyed this more straight-forward story telling approach.

The story itself was very intriguing. A chase story with hints of The Fugitive. Characters were pretty well fleshed out, as was the world-building. Only as much exposition as necessary when referencing the earlier books. Some open plot points filled in, new ones opened up. Poetry and discussion of such kept to a minimum (sorry, I'm not a poetry guy). All around, a very fun read.

Audiobook notes: Very good narrator from previous book returns. No mispronounciations that I noticed, although those who speak Italian or Latin might disagree. I see that he (Walter Bevin) is reading the next one, too, which is good. ( )

For anyone who has NOT read the first two books of the Hyperion “Cantos”, self referencing Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion, STOP HERE.

It’s not that i will give spoilers here, instead that you are doing yourself an injustice by continuing. Go pick up the first book and read it. This is one of those thought changing sci-fi series.

you will start thinking about its congruence with reality: start seeing the tech it describes in modern life (albeit in nearly unrecognizable forms). you will scan the news and see articles that will remind you of the story. Some people start spreading the viral thought of tattoos… thanks a lot Mongo..

For the genre, it has a lack of balance, spanning horror, sci-fi, fantasy, tech, erotica, and religious theory. This lack of balance makes it ACCESSIBLE, something nearly all sci-fi authors wish for. They want the ability to reach more than the core crowd of fan boys/girls and aficionados. Simmons does this with a silver tongue.

The remainder of this will not make sense to the n00b reader.

Endymion takes place nearly 300 years after The Fall.

The Shrike pilgrims of the first two novels are the stuff of legends, the legacy they left behind equally so. The newly formed PAX, a militaristic extension of the rekindled Catholic church, has taken up the reins of the galaxy. The Ousters are fighting for ground (or space as it were). The Farcaster network is dead, remnants of the highest pinnacle of human existence.

As with the original half of the series, this story is also told in a retrospective form. While circling a planet in a egg shaped prison cell, Endymion is logging his tale into a journal. No room for movement, any moment death could take him as his own breathing may be misconstrued as an “escape attempt” filling his 6 meter by 3 meter prison with cyanide.

Endymion, named after the Hyperion city of his ancestors, is given a list of achievements he must complete. Beginning with the nigh impossible collection of Brawn Lamia’s (as of yet unknown to us readers) daughter. Her 14 year old (yes, i did say 300 years later) daughter is referenced in The Fall by the second Keats cybrid as the “One who Teaches”. Endymion must endgame this (long and not written out here) laundry list of tasks with the saving of humanity by assisting this child, half human,the other half human with an essence of AI soul (do Artificial Intelligences have souls?).

Like anything in a Dan Simmons book is ever that easy :)

Expanding on the Hyperion universe while introducing new realistic and thoughtful characters. ( )

terzo capitolo dei "Canti di Hyperion" e un altra conferma del talento di Simmons. Siamo molto lontani dalla cupezza e dalla grandiosità dei primi due capitoli, qui la storia si fa più piccola, più votata all'avventura tout court, ma non per questo meno appassionante... ( )

Plus half a star. And this felt like half a book, despite being so long so I guess I shall look out for the Rise of Endymion. And I did get a bit impatient somewhere in the middle but the book recovered my attention very well. I liked the structure with short chapters alternating between two points of view and sometimes a long chapter to break the pattern. The biggest gap for me is that it failed to bring the Pax and Church into focus - we encounter shadowy figures that are defined by their roles and never their individuality. ( )

We must not forget that the human soul,
however independently created
our philosophy represents it as being,
is inseparable
in its birth and in its growth
from the universe into which it is born.
--Teilhard de Chardin
Give us gods. Oh give them us!
Give us gods.
We are so tired of men
and motor-power.

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).
