The Hyperion Cantos is a series of science fiction novels by Dan Simmons. The title was originally used for the collection of the first pair of books in the series, Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion, and later came to refer to the overall storyline, including Endymion, The Rise of Endymion, and a number of short stories

Hyperion (Hyperion Cantos Dan Simmons. 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. You have been chosen to return to Hyperion,' came a woman's husky voice.

A stunning tour de force filled with transcendent awe and wonder, Hyperion is a masterwork of science fiction that resonates with excitement and invention, the first volume in a remarkable epic by the multiple-award-winning author of The Hollow Man. On the world called Hyperion, beyond the reach of galactic law, waits a 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.

One of my all time favorite series. Full of great characters, amazing settings, fabulous story lines, and if you read the whole series of 4 books, you'll get into philosophy, religion, ethics, science, the future of mankind in several forms, and a story you won't be able to put down. I cry my eyes out every single time I read the last book, and I've read them all several times. I bought this book to replace one that I loaned out to someone who never gave it back. Goes to show why I don't like to loan my books out. These are incredibly well written, deep and thoughtful, and you will love these books. Almost impossible to describe with any shade of accuracy. I can tell you what it's about and it's like saying the ocean is big. You know what big is, but until you see it, you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Read this, and then the others. You won't regret it.

I think this is the best sci-fi I've read since Frank Herbert's Dune trilogy. Imagine reading something as great as the movie Matrix written by someone who knows Keats, Shakespeare, Pound etc. I'm no technology buff, so I struggled to understand the world these characters inhabited - but it was so worth the effort. The characters are not as accessible as Frank Herbert's - they are complex, disillusioned souls struggling toward an unknown but fascinating and compelling goal. I'm going to keep this review mercifully brief, as I've just bought the second book, but will close with the existential problems books like this pose for me.

I bought Hyperion impulsively because of its "brilliant, transcendent" etc reviews, which I happened upon looking for more Neal Stephenson. I came so close to missing it! How many more wonderful books am I missing? How will I know? Why do I live in the middle of nowhere? ahem.

Buy this book if you love beautifully written sci-fi mystery.

A superb complement to the first and greater volume in the Hyperion series. Alone among science fiction novels, Hyperion and it sequel both address the complexities of the human spirit along with the consequences of Universal Artificial Intelligence. Nearly every other sci-fi writer is a lover of intellect and reason without examining what makes humans human. Mr. Simmons has the courage to investigate this ultimate conundrum, with outstanding results. A first rate novel in all respects - story, plot and characters, not to mention a lucid prose style that carries the story forward with pacing.

Unbelievably dense, yet quite readable. I'd read "The Terror" by Simmons and was similarly blown away. "Hyperion" introduces Simmons' universe which is at least comparable to Herbert's (Dune), Brin's (The Uplift saga) or Scalzi's (Old Man's War). As other reviews state, the structure of the story is similar to the Canterbury Tales, but really this is a mystery novel. The pilgrims' tales reminded me a great deal of "Haunted," by Chuck Palahniuk: graphic, often bittersweet if not outright dark but there is a gallows humor that pops up. An engrossing and entertaining read. I will definitely try the next volume. (Sorry to be light on details but I'm trying to avoid any spoilers of any kind). If you like "Dune," "Game of Thrones," sci-fi, mysteries or medieval literature, check this out.

I don't know that Hyperion (book one of Simmons' Hyperion Cantos) has aged all that well. I'm sure when it came out, everyone found it clever--I certainly would've if I'd read it at the time. But with all the literary and cultural references, it feels a bit showy now. Maybe even dated.

That said, Simmons' Canterbury Tales-esque structure works well, and the stories that each character tells on their pilgrimage are intriguing and often shocking. And you're certainly left wanting to read book two.

The Fall of Hyperion, on the other hand, is moving, compelling, and thoughtful. It's as if Simmons took the entirety of the first book to set up the payoffs in the second. He's gotten all the cleverness one out of his system and settles down to do what he needs to do: let the characters' stories unfold. And they do so beautifully.

I won't give away any spoilers. However, I'll say that the end is a little mind-blowing and very, very poignant.

After all these years, the books have apparently been optioned for a miniseries. I'll be curious to see how they translate to the small screen.

I want to go back to school and learn all about the brain, then collaborate with chemists and microbiologists and neurobiologists and whoever else is around, to find a way to go in and bleach the memory of this book from my brain. In doing so I can then reread this book as if it were the first time. That's how much I like this book. There's your review. I said good day.
