Junto con Raul Endymion y el androide A. A great conclusion to the story that began with Hyperion.

Junto con Raul Endymion y el androide A. A great conclusion to the story that began with Hyperion. The series is definitely one of the best in sci-fi and well worth finishing if you've read the first book s. Unlike so many other series the story does not begin to repeat itself. Instead, you may even be surprised by some of the turns of events, which imho is a great achievement.
For the first time in a long while I didn't have the feeling 'I've read this somewhere before Even the slightly twisted references to real people or events make the tale more interesting to read.
I love the idea of how the things we see in one way might be skewed further as time goes by. In short recommend for reading! I hate to see good things come to an end. Simultaneously, I feel that a well crafted conclusion to a great series is one of the highlights to reading.
There was no disappointment to the Hyperion Cantos. Warning to readers, this book is far more dense than others in the series. You have to expect as much considering that there is so much to discuss. The religious, technological, and philosophical merge in this novel. The far flung planet of Hyperion has been left behind. The palindromic character Aenea and her partner Endymion begin on Old Earth. Rise of Endymion book 4 picks up a few years after the close of Endymion book 3.
With the death of The Architect, the crew is forced to leave the relative safety of this Magellanic Cloud which hides the stolen planet earth from the Catholic Pax monstrosity. What is the Shrike? What's the real purpose driving the Techno-Core?
What are the lions, tigers, and bears? To avoid spoilers, I will just advise that your questions will be answered. Everything that you have wondered about from the prior 3 novels will be addressed with very few exceptions.
Sci-fi aficionados who fail to read this series are doing themselves a horrible injustice. Destiny calls. They must discover the Meaning. They must bring it to the people. And again, the spiked monster, the Shrike, dogs their steps. As do, the Pax who see her as a threat to the power of their church and theocracy, and their unholy alliance with the very machines that were ready to destroy Mankind in The Fall of Hyperion. The Meaning of the Universe. The Secrets of Existence.
The Fate of the Universe. Genre: science fiction, space opera, militaria, destiny of man Why this book: Because this is the last official book in the canon of The Hyperion Cantos. And, because, I loved the other three. I have misgivings about this one with the themes expressed. This Story is About: Railing against faith being forced upon you or your being coerced into its trappings whether you believe or not.
Wandering the wonders of Simmons imagined megaverse through the partially defunct farcaster portals I get that it is supposed to show us how far and wide the beings who wish to know of and about Aenea are, but it comes across odd to me. The story is about predestination more than faith or destiny.
The tragedy that all stories become when you think about the what happens next and next and next. Life ends. People die. The end comes. Fight the good fight. Favorite Character: Aenea is a Jesus figure in the story. She is a favorite as is Raul. Bettik doesn't get enough screen time. He is probably my favorite favorite in the book. And though I had misgivings about him, Father DeSoya grows back into the character that I loved from the previous book.
They're cardboard boogeymen. Cardinal Lourdusammy. He's the fat cleric, the Richlieu, the villain whose motives you can't be sure of After that point, you start watching him more closely. That might be a function of this novel being almost entirely from his perspective, even when he is omniscient narrating events that took place outside of his sight.
The Feel: Gloom at impending destiny or doom through the early part of the book when Raul is separated from Aenea and A. There is a definitive difference in the feel of this books versus the other books of the Hyperion Cantos. There is a feel like there is too much story and not enough pages as I read toward the end of the book. Favorite Scene: The scene where Raul comes through the farcaster into the Jovian world. Especially when added to my thoughts on how he left that world, he didn't arrive at the next world in quite the way I would have envisioned.
I had visions of his being spit through another farcaster by one of the giant floating squid creatures The scene where Raul is thinking about the first intimate night he shared with Aenea and his exposition concerning love which is too awesome not to quote. To share the most private and sacred of moments. It feels like a violation to put such things into words. And a lie not to. To see and feel one's beloved naked for the first time is one of life's pure, irreducible epiphanies.
If there is a true religion in the universe, it must include the truth of contact or be forever hollow. To make love to the one true person who deserves that love is one of the few absolute rewards of being a human being, balancing all of the pain, loss, awkwardness, loneliness, idiocy, compromise, and clumsiness that go with the human condition.
To make love to the right person makes up for a lot of mistakes. I had never made love to the right person before. I knew that even as Aenea and I first kissed and lay against each other, even before we began moving slowly, then quickly, then slowly again. I realized that I had never really made love to anyone before that. The young-soldier-on-leave sex with friendly women or the bargeman and bargewoman we-have-the-opportunity-so-why-not?
The battle at the Temple Hanging in Air. I find myself much more emotionally involved in this than I thought. I was on Simmons for the way the book was written. But this scene is a great capstone. It makes the previous pages worthwhile. I'm very pleased with this scene.
And the battle's aftermath in the Ouster system, that's what big science fiction is. My heart aches at the scene near the end in Castel Sant'Angelo on Pacem. Very well written. Settings: Old Earth, space, Pacem, the defunct but still functional worlds linked by farcaster, Jovian high atmosphere.
The book does play a bit too much of travelogue when it begins detailing Tien Shan, which sounds like an awesome place, but did we really need to interrupt the story to exposit all the known habitats of Tien Shan along with where the people living there were from: nationally, culturally, racially. Tree rings around distant stars. Pacing: This is one of those books where you blink or you yawn and realize that you have read a hundred pages.
The book seems to stop for a breather when Raul reaches Tien Shan. Stuff still happens, i. It breaks the books up a bit for me. There's too much story left to tell and too many pieces still on the chessboard for this interregnum.
Nearing the end of the books, I want it to last. I want it to be longer. This has been an incredible series and I don't want to read the last page of the last full novel in the series. After his appearance in the previous book, Endymion, this is horridly out-of-character even when factored against his busting down in rank and removal from the Fleet.
The lessons he learned and internalized while chasing Aenea in the previous book have been lost or forgotten. The character is doing the same things that gave him such nightmares in the previous book. Though after his being busted down and removed from rank and the fleet, perhaps that caused him to see the good that the Church was doing as opposed to the actions that his conscience was giving him problems with.
He does make a move in this book. Aenea and Raul walking up and sticking their heads in the Pax's trap on T'ien Shan is stupid.
