Description

“State of the art science fiction . . . a landmark novel.”—Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

Now, in the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. On the world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing—nothing anywhere in the universe—will ever be the same.

Praise for The Fall of Hyperion

“One of the finest SF novels published in the past few years.”Science Fiction Eye 

“A magnificently original blend of themes and styles.”The Denver Post

L’avis de : Publishers Weekly

30 janv. 1990 – This densely plotted book concludes the futuristic tale begun in Hyperion . Earth has long since been destroyed, and humans now occupy more than 150 worlds linked by the Web, an instantaneous travel system created and operated by artificial intelligences (AIs--self-aware, highly advanced computers). These worlds are about to war with the Ousters, a branch of humanity that has disdained dependency on the AIs. At risk are the planet Hyperion, its mysterious Tombs that travel backward in time, and the Shrike, its god/avatar of pain or retribution. The narrative focuses on the government of the Web and its leader, Meina Gladstone, as observed by Joseph Severn, a cybernetic re-creation of the poet John Keats, and seven Shrike pilgrims, who may affect the war's outcome. Simmons pits good against evil, with the religions of man and those of the machines battling for supremacy. Despite his grand scale, however, he fashions intensely human individuals whom the reader will take to heart. ( Mar. )

Avis des utilisateurs

Science fiction always gives me much food for thought..

But this book was an interesting look at not just science, future possibilities, AI, but also the role of religion in society and where current trends could take us. It touches on the nature of mankind - are we born good? Is there original sin? The nature of God, theodicy, sacrifice, beauty and poetry. A lot of good conversations with my husband as we read both of the Hyperion novels together...

The Fall of Hyperion

This is a well constructed narrative, with superbly engaging characters. There are sublime surprises, and wonderful twists that keep the reader bewildered. I would not have the expectation of being as mesmerized as with Hyperion, but the final result is, in fact, more satisfying.
