    One thought on “Гиперион”

    1. Somehow I ve managed to read a dozen books by Dan Simmons without getting around to Hyperion, one of his most acclaimed works Frankly, I ve been scared of it Simmons has been mashing up horror, sci fi, hard boiled crime novels, thrillers, and historical fiction while often stuffing his books with so many ideas that it was all I could do to keep up so this seemed like it could be a bit than I could comfortably chew Just as I feared, while I was reading and nearing the end, Simmons crept into my [...]

    2. WHAT THE SHRIKE What in the world did I just read, and why didn t I read it sooner This book is so superbly written and crafted it s easily one of the best modern books I ve read, one that excels in storytelling and writing If I could give this book than five stars, I definitely, definitely would The scope of imagination, wordplay, and critical analysis of humankind is astounding I do think that the frame structure of the story, in which each character s tale slowly unfurls the plot, is superbl [...]

    3. First of all, let me begin by saying that I really enjoyed reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons The depth, variety and scope of his imagination is a joy for any science fiction fan Having said that, there were some flaws that must be addressed The dialogue is frequently flat and there are some corny stereotypes that were fun but also distracting when the writer is trying to create a serious work The pace is also a problem I had to invoke my rule to give any book at least 100 pages before I set it asi [...]

    4. 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 basi [...]

    5. Deep in the shady sadness of a vale Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn.HyperionImagine a universe where the Earth has been destroyed and humanity is spread out across hundreds of planets Combine the artful poetry of John Keats with a science fiction retelling of the Canterbury Tales Add tons of references to the myths and legends of the three Abrahamic religions, and what you have is Hyperion A masterpiece of literature.Seven pilgrims come together aboard the treeship Yggdrasil to make a [...]

    6. These stories are, individually, mind blowingly good in concert, they are little short of breathtaking This is science fiction at its very best, and its avoidance of simple answers satisfies me deeply I can t wait to read the next book.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    7. On the eve of interstellar war between the Hegemony of Man and the barbarian Ousters over the fate of Hyperion, seven pilgrims embark on a journey to the Time Tombs and their mysterious protector, The Shrike, a three meter tall, four armed monster covered with blades One pilgrim will have his wish granted and the others will be impaled on the Shrike s Tree of Pain Only one or of the pilgrims isn t what he appears to beI first read Hyperion almost seven years ago as part of the The Hyperion Omni [...]

    8. I m frankly terrified to review Dan Simmons masterpiece Hyperion It is too good and too big for me to do this right Soif I m going to do it wrong, I might as well have fun I thought I would mirror both Chaucer s and Simmons use of the frame story in my review The opening bit of Keats poetry He enter d, but he enter d full of wrath His flaming robes stream d out beyond his heels, And gave a roar, as if of earthly fire,That scar d away the meek ethereal Hours The Overarching FrameThis may be one o [...]

    9. Hyperion is generally regarded as a science fiction classic, it tends to be included in most Best SF Novels of All Time lists I first read it when it was first published in paperback, at the time I had no idea I was reading a book that is destined to become a classic in the genre When I began to participate in online sf books discussion groups not so long ago primarily PrintSF these days I noticed how often Hyperion is mentioned, usually reverent tones A reread is then in order because I have en [...]

    10. Still singing loudly, not looking back, matching stride for stride, they descended into the valley This first novel in the Hyperion Cantos easily surpassed any sci fi I ve ever read While the presence of cool space ships, strange planets and gun fights in space are all going to be familiar to fans of the genre the typical adventures, rebellions and funny evil aliens are nowhere to be found Instead we get a tale of incredible complexity, deep, brilliantly realized world building and a mature and [...]

    11. It s the 28th century, through a little accident some people do not believe it was , Earth has been destroyed by scientists, over 400 years before, the inhabitants have dispersed, they struggle in two hundred different planets, to survive, in the vast galaxy, an Empire called Hegemony, rises, to protect or is it to exploit them But with civilizations growing and changing, in desert planets, ocean worlds, jungle lands, mountains regions, the expanding universe goes on forever, how can any rule On [...]

    12. 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 destination.I 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 bo [...]

    13. The Hegemony Consul sat on the balcony of his ebony spaceship and played Rachmaninoff s Prelude in C sharp Minor on an ancient but well maintained Steinway while great, green, saurian things surged and bellowed in the swamps below After reading this stunning first line I was intrigued by Hyperion By the end of the first page I was hooked By the conclusion of chapter one I was a craven addict, my Hyperion obsessed mind now fit for a series of cautionary posters titled This is your brain on genre [...]

    14. Lo dir de forma sencilla Hyperion entra en el top 3 de mis mejores lecturas del a o.Simplemente no creo que se haya escrito mejor libro de ciencia ficci n despu s de este Lo tiene absolutamente todo Es un deleite.Se ha hablado mucho y muy bien de esta novela y no quiero alargarme con la trama demasiado porque lo verdaderamente importante de la obra es el juego de informaci n que Simmons nos va entregando de forma magistral Puede parecer en un principio que la informaci n es un bombardeo, pero tr [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. Hyperion was an interesting book, but it s difficult to convey what the story was about in a summary It s one of those books that gradually reveals its purposes as the plot progresses In a nutshell, a handful of POV characters journey to Hyperion an enigma of a world made even mysterious by the presence of the Shrike see cover for visual it s the big metallic being As each character expands on their connection to this world, you start to get a sense of what s really going on Hyperion is definit [...]

    17. Alas, another hard Science Fiction book that doesn t mesh well with me in audio format I ve actually been quite interested in this story, but I feel as though I m zoning out of the audio book and missing important pieces of information Going to retry in physical form, hopefully soon

    18. I am a sucker for novels made up of short stories I am a sucker for the Romantic poets especially Keats I m a sucker for spine tingling sci horror, space opera, sci fi tragicomedy, sci tragedy, techno noir, cyberpunk, conspiracy theories and doomed love stories I am a sucker for literary intertextuality and pop intertextuality Mostly though, I am a sucker for a good tale, and that is what Hyperion is, but when I read this story ten years ago I found that it left me a bit cold I think I finally k [...]

    19. When people rave about this book they should really mention that it doesn t have a real ending Sure it was an enjoyable bunch of stories and all, but I was reading them in the context of learning about the characters before the big showdown at the end of the book I guess that only happens in the next book.I also found the description of the settings overdone and a bit indulgent These sections became very easy to spot as they tend to be at the beginning of a chapter or new story I found myself sk [...]

    20. I loved this sci fi classic, Hyperion and want to read the rest of the series now especially with the massive cliffhanger at the end A sort of Canterbury Tales in space, Simmons takes us 700 years in the future with a human race that fled the ineluctable implosion of planet earth in two groups the Hegemony and the rebellious Ousters There are, if memory serves, about 25 or was it 250 inhabited worlds between which slipships sp use Hawking drive presumably named for the amazing Stephen Hawkings a [...]

    21. 2.5I wanted to love this book so bad I really did.Reading this book definitely wasn t easy So many times i didn t know what the hell was going on Most of the time I was confused or frustrated, and many times I thought about giving up If this wasn t a library book, I would definitely put it down, and read it again when I m in a mood for reading this kind of book.The book is written in short stories form, and I think that was my problem with it I got bored at beginning of each story, and as soon a [...]

    22. 6.0 stars One of my ALL Time Favorite novels This is easily on my list of top 5 GREATEST Science Fiction novels ever written Superb combination of grand, big idea space opera with incredible characters and deeply emotional writing A PERFECT NOVEL HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION Winner Hugo Award for Best Science Fiction Novel 1990 Winner Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel 1990 Nominee Arthur C Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel 1990 Nominee British Science Fiction Award for Best [...]

    23. Well, this is definitely one of those cliffhanger ending books, as many people warned me So close yet so far away.Anyhow The book was excellent, I loved the independent narratives and the writing style This book made me want to learn so much about the universe it s based in on The allusions to classic poetry and literature were very fitting to the story line, and I think they ll only deepen with what I ve read so far of The Fall of Hyperion Yes, I immediately went out and bought the next book i [...]

    24. Framed narratives while on pilgrimage to religious site suggestive of The Canterbury Tales, but not drawing any real influence from it Whereas Chaucer s pilgrims generally do not tell their own stories, the focus in Hyperion is the tale of the teller The caveat, though, is that each teller s tale is intimately wrapped up with a tale of another the priest must tell a second priest s story a soldier, another soldier s a poet, a patron a teacher, his daughter a PI, her lover a diplomat, a rebel So, [...]

    25. You have been chosen to return to Hyperion as a member of the Shrike Pilgrimage This was a tough book to review It is essentially a bunch of short stories interwoven by the connective tissue of a pilgrimage by a group of desperate people Ordinarily, I hate reading short story collections Alice Munro is about the only author whose short stories I m willing to pick up So it is probably fortunate I didn t know going in that this was Hyperion s structure cause I would have noped right out.As it was, [...]

    26. Ah Hyperion Quite the achievement Like its fascination with poetry might suggest, this novel is a piece of art.There are many themes addressed here, and a re reading at some stage is likely in order On one level it s a novel about faith the loss of faith, and, perhaps, the regaining of faith On another, it s a novel about retribution Alternatively, it is nothing of the sort, and just a darn good Space Opera As other reviewers have noted, there is a notable element of horror throughout It is a da [...]

    27. The sunset comes through the open chapel window and bathes the altar, the crudely carved chalice, and me in light The wind from the Cleft rises in the last such chorus that with luck and God s mercy I will ever hear.Hyperion takes place long after Earth has been destroyed and is referred to as Old Earth Humans now live on several planets, one of which is the planet Hyperion, where a creature called the Shrike lives near the Time Tombs, structures which move backwards through time 7 citizens are [...]

    28. La famosa novela de Dan Simmons publicada en 1989 y ganadoras de los premios Hugo, Locus e Ignotus, es la primera de una tetralog a llamada Los Cantos de Hyperion Siguiendo una estructura narrativa similar a la de Los Cuentos de Canterbury de Geoffrey Chaucer, nos narra la historia de c mo siete personas se dirigen al planeta Hyperion a una ltima peregrinaci n a su encuentro con el Alcaud n, el conocido Se or del Dolor Durante el viaje que nos lleva hasta las Tumbas de Tiempo, hogar donde el Alc [...]

    29. This was a bleak and intense sci fi set in a far flung future With war looming seven pilgrims are chosen to journey to the mysterious Time Tombs, located on the far flung world of Hyperion, to petition the dark and enigmatic Shrike The story is told using the frame story format Each pilgrim tells their own individual story while they are traveling to the Time Tombs It proved a surprisingly effective method of storytelling and allowed each individual pilgrim s tale to be told in a different style [...]
