The multiple-award-winning science-fiction master returns to the universe that is his greatest triumph - the world of Hyperion and The Fall ofHyperion - with a novel even more magnificent than its predecessors.Dan Simmons's Hyperion was an immediate sensation on its first publication in 1989. This staggering multifaceted tale of the far future heralded the conquest of the science-fiction field by a man who had already won the World Fantasy Award for his first novel (Song of Kali) and had also published one of the most well-received horror novels in the field, Carrion Comfort. Hyperion went on to win the Hugo Award as Best Novel, and it and its companion volume, The Fall of Hyperion, took their rightful places in the science-fiction pantheon of new classics.Here, Simmons returns to this richly imagined world of technological achievement, excitement, wonder and fear. Endymion is a story about love and memory, triumph and terror - an instant candidate for the field's highest honors.More

Great Story Dreary Narration
It would be better with a different narrator.
The Fall of Hyperion. The story is a great addition to the Hyperion cantos.
Slow, dreary paceless.
Yes. I was eager to find out what happened next at each step of the character's journeys.
I love the first 3 books of Hyperion Cantos and look forward to hearing the last book in the series. However, the narration is so slow, monotone and listless that I actually listened to most of this book on double speed which actually helped match the pace of the storyline and for the most part didn't sound like double speed because the original is so slow. If I were the author, or Audible, I would have this book (and the other books in the series) re-narrated by an narrator who can properly pace a story and who can add to the excitement as Audible has some truly gifted narrators.
