    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)

    Immensely boring tutorial

    This is being sold as a separate book, and as such I shall "review" it: this is a collection of backstories for the main characters of the second book, told in a boring way and voiced by several speakers, of which only two are actually good, most notably the Poet. On the other end of the spectrum, A. Johnson sounded like a discarded prototype of Apple's Siri. Without any emotion in any situation, despite plasmafire and detonations happening all around her character.

    Buy this as a book, I believe the Audiobook to be inferior.

    Puh.

    Menschen mit Down Syndrom sind hier missgebildete Wilde. Sagt eigentlich alles. Die Sprecher sind gut.

    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.

    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 ;-)

    One of the Best books, not only in sci-fi

    Hyperion is a tale that functions more like a collection of short stories. 7 pilgrims start towards a journey to meet a legendary creature just before an intergalactic crisis threatens to destroy the balance of humanity's sketchy empire. All the moving pieces are being referenced from the beginning of the book but they become clear very organically as one reads on. The pilgrims take turns narrating their life up to this final voyage and their reason that ties them to this almost godly being that awaits them on its Homeplanet, Hyperion. Each of their stories could be a book by its own and combine different motives, conveying vastly different feelings. The sci-fi elements are strong and interesting, seeing technology clash with politics and religion is an interesting triangle. The audiobook has also brought 7 different narrators to do the pilgrims' voices which adds a lot of character to each one of them.
    Overall a stellar book with an execution that lives up to its weight.

    Still worth a listen

    This is a great production of a story that still feels modern and interesting. The story-structure around the protagonists is compelling and only a few of the tales show their age. Well worth listening to!

    Wow..

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