And so is the sequel.

Don't bother with Endymion though

>>7674003

a very comfortable, optimistic view of the future.
the merlin syndrome story is excellent, come to think of it reminds me a lot of Benjamin Button.

Wish Ilium was better. Didn't really "get" it.
A T-Rex eats the protagonist, but it doesn't matter because he can regenerate? What?

Its such a fun book to me. I was able to picture everything so vividly and even imagine what the air is like to breathe on Hyperion. I think a lot of it is beautiful but fuck it can be terrifying.

That first story about the priest was absolutely captivating for me but it was so eerie and gave me this sort of bizarre archaic feeling of dread.

I'm really curious to see how SyFy does the show. I hope it has production as good or better as The Expanse and that Bradley Cooper knows what hes doing as a producer.

I hear the rest of the series is at the very bottom of the fantasy tier, but I've been thinking of checking this out anyway, if only because of the praise I hear of its strong start.
