Reviews of Hyperion Omnibus, the (1996)
Review by SirDemon (2007-03-14)
This series is one of my all-time favorites. I'm an avid fan of science fiction but this series goes way beyond mere science fiction. It's a combination of epic science fiction, historical character insights and poetry from such masters as Keats and Yates.
Simmons combines them beautifully and seamlessly.
The first time I read it, I went through all 4 books in 2 days and was so sad it ended I read it again right away.
Simmons is an extremely talented author who does his research well and actually teaches you something while you read without you even noticing it.
