    An absolute must-read series for scifi fans! The characters, technologies, and reality that Dan Simmons creates with Hyperion will stay with you for quite awhile. A captivating epic tale told from many perspectives -- great read overall!

    As the entire known universe is torn apart by war, seven strangers travel to Hyperion to make pilgrimage to the Shrike. A creature which, unrestricted by human morality or the limits of time strikes out at humanity, slaughtering its victims in attacks to fast to be seen or understood. Fleeing the confusion on their home-worlds, these individuals share their stories so that they might understand why they were each drawn to seek answers from an inscrutable being whose actions only seem to breed chaos and destruction.

    One of the best books I've ever read

    Hyperion will always be one of those books that I would think back on and remember how much it impacted me as a reader. Dan Simmons' writing style keeps any reader engaged while the story develops so fluidly and surprises the reader at any turn of event so unexpectedly. I know I will read the Hyperion Cantos several times in my life because I learn something new each time.

    Masterpiece

    Hyperion is a rare book, an incredible achievement that I consider on par with 'The Lord Of the Ring'. I envy the new reader that will discover this strange and wondrous universe. The story, the style, the creativity, the vision page after page is simply astounding. I have read it twice but I know I will read it a few more times, I learn something new each time.

    Brilliant

    Unbelievably entertaining, humorous, moving, really 5 or 6 novellas in 1 coherent future history. Gives you the best and worst of human nature, and a vision of how tech has changed, not improved, civilization as each character travels a different arc to their humanity.
