Review: Hyperion

Hyperion Hyperion by Dan Simmons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, the author is obsessed with Keats and poetry.
The book and the whole understory are great, captivating and one can see why the book won the award. The story is complex, with loads of layers that surprisingly all fit nicely together. And the book is masterfully executed. Just the right amount of the foreshadowing, descriptions, and change in POV voices so that book looks like a series of short stories, but it culminates into the common milieu.
The only issue I have with it is all that poems and poetry that's inside the book.
It is very likely that I will go for subsequent novels.
