    Inhaltsangabe

    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 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 pilgrims 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.
    ©1989 Dan Simmons (P)2008 Audible, Inc.

    Kritikerstimmen

    Hugo Award, Best Novel, 1990
    Locus Award, Best Novel, 1990
    "Dan Simmons has the Midas touch: Every genre he writes - whether SF, horror, mystery, historical, or thriller - he turns to gold. Hyperion and The Fall Of Hyperion set a new standard for grand-scale science fiction." (Kevin J. Anderson, author of The Saga of Seven Suns)
    "Dan Simmons was a star from the outset. It was the Hyperion books that made him a superstar. The man, quite simply, is what we in the trade call a writer's writer." (Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author)
    Each of [the pilgrim's] stories would make a superb novella on its own. ( The New York Times Book Review, Gerald Jonas)

    Space Opera at it's best

    If you like intelligent SiFi with a big plot you will be satisfied. Not only does Dan Simmons draw a big picture of the future, he also does weave cultural and religious elements into his story. A must read for SiFi Fans. Only drawback is, that you have to read all four books ;-)

    Hard to follow and unsure how it ended.

    This was the longest audiobook I have listened to. Not in length but the time it took me to finish as I had to keep going back because I thought I must have missed something important. At the end of the book... nothing happened.

    Incredible...utterly incredible. Pitch perfect performance of one of the best examples of scifi I've read.
