    You didn't read Canterbury Tales, did you? Cause these two have nothing in common aside from "travellers on the road share stories" premise.

      Conversely, I read The Canterbury Tales and didn't read Hyperion.

        Objectively wrong.

        Priest > scholar > poet ~= consul > soldier >>>>>>> detective

        The consul was a cool character but his tory kind of sucked. Detective was a huge disappointment because a detective story in that setting should have been great but it was very bad.

          i just didn't give a shit about kassad at all and found his character to be extremely uninteresting, thus his story the worst. although he had some cool fight scenes. i loved the consul's tale because of the themes and world building - expanding on time debt and consequences of farcasters

          detective wasn't great but lamia had a personality so better than soldier. also the cyberhacking neuromancer rip-off stuff was cool. glad we're in agreement about based father dure though

        Simmons is a israelite isnt he?

        - portrays israelites as saviors and heros
        - disgusting sex scenes
        - flying furries who teach dumb humans about superior pacifist moral values and hippi culture
        - church controls people with a cross shaped (mind) virus/parasite

        The fucking during battles scenes made the soldier's story, the ending was kinda obvious though

        This so much this Endymion is the best and it only gets hate because rise was a trainwreck.

        • 3 months ago

          It was the other way around. Endymion was all over the place. Soya was the only cjaracter honding the story together. The Rise of Endymion was a better novel, but it skipped many interesting things and we got too much padding on the architecture parts. At least the ending was kind of cool.

          >rise was a trainwreck
          No it wasn't. The climax was perfect and really couldn't have gone any other way given how it was foreshadowed as early as Fall of Hyperion iirc, certain minor issues with continuity and trivia aside (Aenea's age having been miscalculated by the author at the end or whether the farcasters had actually "worked" etc.) Endymion as a road of trials type story is great fun, but ultimately serves to set up and give flesh to that conclusion and justify the action of the MCs. Rise completes the series in a glorious way

            I'm not arguing that the ending was full of plot holes or that it wasn't foreshadowed. The issue is they spent like 300 pages in the the temple of hanging air, so the book feels way more constrained than endymion, which is more of an adventure.

              I guess the underlying perennialist and Zen themes of the story called for some mystical Eastern setting

        the book is riddled with references to historical events and quoted many historical authors. too many of these fell into the 19th and 20th centuries and some seemed unrealistic to be quotable by the time of the book's setting. this is what I remember feeling after reading this like a decade ago, I don't remember specifics other than the obvious presence of keats and the mein kampf reference.

              And it is, did you read Poet's story? Hegemony citizens do not read, Sad King Billy's grand project of creating silicon valley for arthoes failed even before Shrike shrekt everyone. The only characters to reference literary figures are Silenus (poet by trade and the oldest human in history), Weintraub (academic israelite), and TechnoCore cybrids who just recreated notable people from history as a fun challenge for their GPT-10 engine

      Why

    Hyperion is really one big book but for publishing purposes they split it into two parts
    The first part is the characters telling their stories of why they are going to the planet
    the second part is what happens once they get there, unraveling its mysteries, confronting the shriek, etc

        More like love creates it's own plane of existence that transcends spacetime. It's a theme in speculative physics that's not that farfetched. Hell, the CIA was working on Gateway experience and altered state shit in the 70s that only recently got declassified
