    1. Nurse, this patient s chart is very confusing Which patient, Doctor UhMr Kemper He s the one in the vegetative state Oh, that s a very sad and odd case According to the patient history, he was admitted a few weeks ago with cerebrospinal fluid leaking from his nose and ears, but it seemed like he should recover But yesterday he was brought in again, barely conscious and then he lapsed into a coma The really odd thing is that I see no signs of injury or disease That s right, Doctor It was a book t [...]


    2. As the pilgrims prepare to enter the Time Tombs, the war between the Ousters and the Hegemony is just hours from breaking out Can they enter the Time Tombs quickly enough to prevent intergalactic war and the deaths of billions Here we are, the second half of the epic Dan Simmons started in Hyperion Kassad, Brawne, and the other pilgrims introduced in the previous book meet their destinies However, the bigger story is the war between the Hegemony and its enemies.During my initial read, I didn t l [...]


    3. The trouble with reading a book like The Fall of Hyperion is that whatever book I read next will likely seem like a load of ol crap In fact, in a Shrike like manner this book traveled back in time and slashed my opinion of the book I read prior to this one which now looks shabby by comparison.The first Hyperion book ends on a musical cliff hanger, The Fall of Hyperion carries on from there though the first chapter is narrated in the first person by a new cybrid protagonist Joseph Severn While he [...]


    4. Buddy read with Athena, Desinka, Gavin Kaora The Final Days are here, priest The prophecies given to us by the Avatar centuries ago are unfolding before our eyes What you call riots are the first death throes of a society which deserves to die The Days of Atonement are upon us and the Lord of Pain soon will walk among us The shadow of war has fallen on the Web The Ousters are initiating a full scale invasion of the central planets of the Hegemony of Man Chaos rules in the corridors of power on T [...]


    5. The Fall of Hyperion is a sequel I swear It says so right there on the cover of my mass market paperback, right above the cheesy artist s rendering of Sol Weintraub presenting Rachel to a rather unimpressive Shrike But I ll tell you, it sure doesn t feel like a sequel It feels like the first book, the main book, of a series, and it makes Hyperion feel like a prequel a superior prequel, but a prequel nonetheless And I really wish I had read The Fall of Hyperion before I read its predecessor I th [...]


    6. As the pilgrims seek the Shrike, the ominous thing, in the eerie Valley of the Time Tombs, avoided by the frightened inhabitants, here, on the planet Hyperion, it does not appear, what to do Days pass but still the creature has remained hidden, the letdown effects them, they expected to be killed The six seekers, the dying priest Hoyt, disillusioned soldier Kassad, sad scholar Weintraub and infant daughter, Rachel, who becomes dangerously younger, daily , unstable poet Silenus, heartbroken detec [...]


    7. While somewhat uneven at the start this book developed into an awesome story with some of the most distinct, memorable and well developed world building I ve ever read, interesting and sympathetic characters, a strong central plot, cool literary references mostly stemming from Simmons serious man crush on John Keats and some thought provoking philosophy although Simmons loses marks for incorporating philosophy into the plot and world in an organic and interesting way rather than through a series [...]


    8. The sequel to Simmons classic Hyperion is every bit as engaging and mind blowing as the first book The book picks up just where Hyperion leaves off, with the pilgrims at the Time Tombs and war with the Ousters imminent We are presented with a few new characters a cybrid named Joseph Severn who is far than he appears and the CEO of the Web Meina Gladstone Severn is capable of dreaming the dreams of the pilgrims and we follow their adventures primarily through his connection to them The story is [...]


    9. I m a visual person With me, things have to be neat, aesthetically pleasing, and in some sort of discernible order even if that order is nothing but visually appealing chaos , otherwise I get cranky I like charts and graphics and brightly colored pictures This probably has something to do with the fact that I have synesthesia, specifically grapheme color synesthesia For me, everything has a color, and in turn, colors provoke emotions My brain also automatically attempts to visualize intangible i [...]


    10. Christmas 2010 I realised that I had got stuck in a rut I was re reading old favourites again and again, waiting for a few trusted authors to release new works Something had to be done.On the spur of the moment I set myself a challenge, to read every book to have won the Locus Sci Fi award That s 35 books, 6 of which I d previously read, leaving 29 titles by 14 authors who were new to me.While working through this reading list I got married, went on my honeymoon, switched career and became a fat [...]


    11. The narrator, Victor Bevine, is one of my favorites He narrates all the other audio versions of the Hyperion Cantos, including the first, dramatized version of Hyperion itself I gave five stars to the underlying written work I only subtract a star for this audiobook because Mr Bevine isn t quite up to the task of doing all the characters particularly all the Shrike Pilgrims by himself Still, this audiobook is a great way to re read Fall of Hyperion.Merged review Having read Hyperion and Fall of [...]


    12. Nutshell how to manual that recommends radical luddite social restructuring in order to defeat slave uprising.Abandons chaucerian structure of first installment and instead alternates between first person and third person bits Opening places narration at center of setting barf by popping first person narrator adjacent to president This centralizing of narration is raised to an affirmative law of science fiction here, via repeated quotation of Yeats, and through the proclamation that right now we [...]


    13. The Fall of Hyperion, a sequel to Hyperion, although it doesn t feel like it The first book was mainly about the history of the pilgrims, and this one has a new protagonist named Joseph Severn, who dreams of the pilgrims As a result I struggled to get into this one, as I was interested in the fates of the pilgrims than this new character There were long sections of dialogue as Joseph sits in on war briefings, which I found uninteresting.However I feel about halfway through the tides changed and [...]


    14. 6.0 stars On my list of All Time Favorites Viewed as one novel, the Hyperion Cantos including Hyperion, this novel and the two subsequent novels comprise, in my opinion, one of the GREATEST works of Science Fiction EVER WRITTEN Space Opera on a epic scale Detailed, original and incredibly imaginative world building and a dense, mind blowing plot Oh yeah, and it has one of the coolest characters creatures ever devisedTHE SHRIKE HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDWinner British Science Fiction Award for Best Novel [...]


    15. Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion are two halves of an extraordinarily complex science fiction masterpiece There are subsequently two books that appear to follow this series Endymion and Rise of Endymion , but they aren t necessary to feel you ve gotten a complete story I will absolutely read them in the future With elements of horror woven through, it s an extremely twisted vision that takes you to the farthest reaches of science fiction.The plot is elaborate and multifaceted yet by the end, t [...]


    16. The Fall of Hyperion picks up directly after the cliffhanger ending to Hyperion The pilgrims have reached the fabled Time Tombs, which are opening, and await their confrontation with the mysterious Shrike The confrontations, when they came, made for compelling reading I was fairly happy with the way Simmons concluded each of the pilgrims tales The pilgrims were as likable, or unlikable, as they were in the first book Brawne Lamia and Colonel Kassad benefited from the most interesting story arcs, [...]


    17. Concludes the Hyperion Duology with Big Canvas Pyrotechnics, Mind Expanding IdeaThis is the concluding half of the story begun in Hyperion, so for those who complained that the former book didn t have a proper conclusion, they ve only read half the tale This time Simmons abandons the Canterbury Tales format of the former book, which told the back stories of the seven pilgrims to Hyperion in distinct stories, in favor of a linear story that needs all its considerable length to cover the massive a [...]


    18. There are few words that strike fear in the hearts of ber Intellectuals as defined in my review of The Da Vinci Code, of all places than the word sequel Adored by Hollywood producers and publishing moguls alike for its low risk, high profit profile, this extension of plot and character guarantees your presence for at least another act Uber Intellectuals, however, shun The Sequel for those same reasons often rightfully so If you can tell a story in one book, don t tell it in two Behold the gener [...]

    20. Una obra maestra de la ciencia ficci n L ANLA Lo nico que puedo escribir en este momento es hagstwagqystshjwh, as que en cuanto logre recuperarme de esta maravilla que acabo de leer, intentar escribir algo coherente.



    21. yNunca deb haber dejado pasar dos a os para terminar la duolog a de Hyperion Si bien nunca olvid el tama o de la joya que es la primera parte, s me olvid de muchos detalles que bien pudieron haber estado m s frescos De cualquier modo mi temor principal al leer la secuela no era se, sino el hacer caso a las voces que dec an que sta deca a mucho al iniciar la secuela.He de decir que s decae al perder la estructura narrativa de los cuentos Esas historias enmarcadas de Hyperion son maravillosas y at [...]



    22. A chaotic mess sprinkled with rubiesThis continuation of the Hyperion saga seems to have been written by Dan Simmon s agent, pushing for pages, using a neural whip on him for cash Ugh.Very long winded and dull chapters, repetition, clumsy interaction between the pilgrims and other players, religious claptrap flowing endlessly.Simmons is clearly very very literate, hurray We know that, and his inclusion of endless references to famous works and people sadly seem to be only a means to extending [...]


    23. Wow So different from the first book, but every bit as great, maybe even greater.The time tombs are opening, and the universe will never be the same Our Pilgrims, each with their own agenda, are standing between the destruction of humanity or its rebirth.Can the CEO save the world Is the info she s acting on correct Are John Keats dreams enough Do the Shrike really want a now newborn baby Rachel How is the Catholic Church involved Are the Ousters our enemy or our friend Are the AI s really our a [...]

    25. WOW I read Hyperion a few years ago, and I always intended to pick up this book Where Hyperion was a collection of several impactful yet self contained stories, The Fall escalates everything into a much grander scale I ve never read a book that dives so deeply into religion, morals, the meaning and core of humankind, the implications that AI could have on future human developmentAlso, Meina Gladstone She s is one of the most formidable badasses in the history of fiction Atlas had the weight of t [...]


    26. Hyperion won the contest for my favourite book of last year How could anything possibly live up to that The Fall of Hyperion is even a straightforward science fiction book, without the literary experimentation of the Canterbury Tales style first book It s got to be a lesser book, right Right Wrong This is one of those very rare few sequels that almost equals the first book And when the first book is the kind of masterpiece that I would argue Hyperion is, it s mind boggling.Note The rest of this [...]


    27. Bueno esto ha sido una pasada Aunque es un poco mas pesado que el primero en un inicio, el desarrollo y conclusi n es mucho mejor que el primer volumen No tiene perdida Pocas veces me sucede que una lectura se me haga tan pesada debido a la cantidad de informaci n que tiene pero que a la vez no puedo parar de leerla Es una genialidad sinceramente Lo nico malo es que puede terminar de ser muy complejo y que toma elementos de fantas a para resolver la trama, pero no es para menos.Recogiendo el tes [...]


    28. Executive Summary While the ending was satisfying the book as a whole wasn t nearly as enjoyable for me as Hyperion 3.5 stars, rounded down because it was just too slow at times.Audiobook After how great the audiobook for Hyperion was, this one was a bit of a letdown Victor Bevine does a good job, but to go from an ensemble to a single narrator was hard Given the structure of this book compared to the last, it makes sense to only have 1 narrator, but I wouldn t have missed it if they had only us [...]
