summary Hyperion 108 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

summary Hyperion 108 To destroy it In the Valley of the Time Tombs where huge brooding structures move backward through time the Shrike waits for them all On the eve of Armageddon with the entire galaxy at war seven pilgrim. Posted at Heradas ReviewThis is another one of those classics of SF literature that I have somehow missed reading over the years Had I been of an active reader in the nineties I m sure I would ve come to it much sooner Thankfully I finally got there and Hyperion was not what I expected in the best way possible It s most often compared to Dune The Book of the New Sun or other great works of Science Fantasy Obviously coming into the novel my expectations were high and I knew the most basic gist of the plot a pilgrimage across a world to meet an unimaginable being What I got was partly what I anticipated but in a very left field form which was such a refreshing subversion of my what I thought I was getting myself into It delivered on what I thought it was but in a way I never imagined and it was fantasticInstead of straight forward narrative momentum Hyperion is almost entirely the backstories of these pilgrims It s heavily character based and the only book I can honestly say is 100% both a novel and a story collection These stories are technically novellas because of their length but you get what I m saying Each story genuinely adds to the forward narrative by going backward It s really uite breathtaking to see this done so well I ve read other collections that are also novels but they re always one or the other This is eually bothEach tale feels like a slightly different genre married to science fiction and the interstitial sections weave them together tightly Only one of them fell slightly flat for me Mostly because it was akin to cyberpunk than anything else and I have a real lovehate affair with cyberpunk I tend to judge the genre entirely too harshly at times mostly because if I have any sort of professional knowledge it s in the Information Technology arena and I have a difficult time suspending my disbelief about the realities of virtual worlds in regards to how they re represented in cyberpunk That s a topic for another dayHyperion has that indescribable almost lovecraftian terror dread and brooding present throughout and one tale in particular left me unbearably heartbroken There s honestly only one thing I can objectively complain about here and it s endemic to the genre during the time period this was written in than anything else the way the narrator spends an inordinate amount of time describing women s bodies broken down into parts particularly breasts and nipples It s just kind of eye roll pervy but it s my only real gripe Thankfully it s not uite at a Haruki Murakami level and this doesn t much happen any in the really well written stuff of the genre but I m embarrassed for the author than anything else award winning fiction like this is fairly written in stone for future generations to examineI was torn whether or not to dig straight into The Fall of Hyperion after finishing this but ultimately I decided not to just yet I want to let this percolate and grow in my mind but mostly I m one of those anti bingeing types that prefers to spread great stories out over a long period of time to elongate my enjoyment of them and better unpack their themes I think it s time for a non genre novel and then I ll dig back in when the time is right That being said I can t wait to come back to the world of Hyperion and see what new terrors await these fantastic characters
