Hyperion (Dan Simmons)…


Hyperion is the first in the Hyperion Cantos series by Dan Simmons.

What a great Sci-Fi book! A group of seven travellers are on a pilgrimage to Hyperion. Six of the seven tell the stories of how they came to be there, with the sixth story kind-of linking things together. There is no real conclusion to the story as the next book carries on the story from the point the first one ends. It was definitely written as a series!

The timeline jumps around quite a bit through the book, but in a good way. It’s not done in a confusing way.

Definitely worth a look for any Sci-Fi readers out there.



PS. I put the authors name in the title, for fear of confusing people into thinking this was about work. 🙂

Author: Tim...

DBA, Developer, Author, Trainer.

  2. Amusingly, it was when I was on amazon researching books about Hyperion (the software) that I came across Hyperion (the sci-fi book). It’s been on my todo list for awhile – thanks for the recommendation!
