Hyperion y la caida de Hyperion son libros magnificos.
Hyperion nos cuenta un universo nuevo y grandioso desde multiples angulos.
La caida, lo extiende, le da profundidad y foco.

Endymion, en cambio recicla lo anterior, añade, siendo generoso, un concepto y se contenta con explicar lo maravillosa que va a ser la aventura, pero sin que esa maravilla ocurra.

Se me hace dificil pensar que es el mismo autor de los libros anteriores. O quiza no queria realmente escribir esto y lo hizo por presiones comerciales.

The start of a journey of david vs the great empire. In lots of places feels like dragging a bit & sometimes a lot. ( )

The writing in these books is surprisingly strong. I thought I was going to stop after the 2nd book, particularly because this one happens far in the future, but the story is pretty darn compelling. ( )

Some hero you are
you're supposed to protect her
not make her save you. ( )

This one brings the series back into its glory

Book 2 had something of a weak ending, but this one is strong throughout. Now I can't wait to dig into the final installment of this fine series. ( )

Epigraph
We must not forget that the human soul,
however independently created
our philosophy represents it as being,
is inseparable
in its birth and in its growth
from the universe into which it is born.
--Teilhard de Chardin
Give us gods. Oh give them us!
Give us gods.
We are so tired of men
and motor-power.
--D. H. Lawrence
