characters Endymion review Endymion 103 отговор Каква е природата на ИИ Техноцентър и неговия последен план за човечестветвото Кой или какво е „отвлякло“ Старата Земя преди хиляда години Какъв е произходът на истинската мисия на. Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion are two books fans of science fiction literature should not miss They are exciting mind blowing beautiful lyrical and thought provoking The first volume Hyperion is often ranked as one of the top ten greatest sci fi books ever That said I read The Fall of Hyperion in November 2012 and only got around to reading Endymion almost two years later I am too easily influenced by reviews or readers comments and while Endymion tend to be positively reviewed than negative it is clearly much less popular than the first two books of the Hyperion Cantos I remember someone said that Endymion is like a bad fanfic of Hyperion it is not and that was very off putting Still I never did remove it from my TBR and eventually I am in the mood for it and here we are I know who cares right But I have to start the review somehow and rambling is usually my launch pad of choice Endymion is set than 200 years after the event of The Fall of Hyperion By then the Cantos written by the foulmouthed poet Martin Silenus has already become the stuff of legend and an infamous banned book The book begins with a frame story of the semi eponymous Raul Endymion writing from some kind of high tech solitary satellite prison While he is awaiting his imminent demise by cyanide poisoning he is spending his last days regaling us lucky readers with the story of his adventures with a girl called Aenea who will one day become a messiah of some kind Aenea is the daughter of the wonderful Brawne Lamia the female detective from the first two volumes of the series and the John Keats cybrid artificial human The book basically concerns Aenea s journey with Endymion and an android named ABettik via a series of farcasters teleportation portals There is also a parallel plot strand of a group of military agents hunting them down Much adventure ensues Unlike the first two volumes of the Cantos this book is fairly straightforward in structure and narrative style It is basically a chase from beginning to end I can understand why some people find it disappointing after having read the previous two books the classic Hyperion especially The tone is very different less poetic and lyrical the profundity is not there One of the most remarkable things about the first Hyperion book is that Dan Simmons did a kind of virtuoso performance by writing in several different styles of sci fi subgenres and other genres including space opera hard sf soft sf military sf cyberpunk hard boiled crime fiction and even literary fiction The different narrative styles also combine beautifully into an excellent and cohesive story Endymion is not so ambitious the prose style in this book is much utilitarian apart from the odd snippets of poetry here and there it is of course very well written one thing you can count on from Simmons Personally I am fine with Endymion s less literary style as it means the author is not repeating himselfThe world building and sci fi tech of Endymion is as great as the previous books My personal favorite is the archangel ships which have faster than light capability but at a slight drawback of violently killing all the occupants of the ship who are later automatically resurrected in cr ches with the aid of the Cruciform parasite from the first Hyperion novel in tandem with some mysterious technology Unfortunately for the humans farcasters are all disabled by the TechnoCore a sort of AI overlords so if you want FTL travel you would have to accept being flattened and suished into a paste then resurrected later and also have a horrid parasite permanently attached to your chestCharacterization is uite strong again an expectation I have of Simmons books though the characters here are not as colorful as those the from the previous Hyperion volumes All the central characters here are believable and sympathetic and the dialogue rings true with the occasional bits of humour My favorite character being A Bettik an android who is humble loyal brave and unfailingly polite of course Even though an android is not a robot A Bettik reminds me of Asimov s R Daneel Olivaw from The Naked Sun and several other of his classic robot novelsThe plot and pacing are very good on the whole though the chapters from the military agent Captain de Soya s point of view tend to drag a little The thrilling climax toward the end of the book is monumentally kickass though edge of the seat stuff featuring The Shrike who is as sharp as ever and an adversary who is worthy of going toe to toe with him The final volume of the Cantos The Rise of Endymion is generally very highly rated Can t wait45 stars half a star knocked off for a few dull chapters The metal planet relationship A study of celestial influence resurrected later and

characters Endymion review Endymion 103 Шрайка И най непреодолимата от всички как посланието на Енея ще промени вселената завинаги ако тя промени вселената завинаги ако тя поиска да го съобщи и ако човечеството е готово да го чу?. Pretty big letdown after the first 2 books in this series This book had none of the tension mystery or brilliant world building of the first one and none of the complex military and political shenanigans of the second The first half to 23 of this book was especially slow and although it picked up a bit towards the end still wasn t enough to redeem it Hoping that the fourth book picks the series up again in a big wayThe start of this book was really frustrating and slow with lots of bad stuff being piled on the protagonist in fact it reminded a bit of this who I didn t really care about His reactions to such terrible and unexpected events seemed underwhelming Having read the Riyria preuels just before starting this I had been hoping for some Royce style fucking people up on a revenge mission but he pretty much completely forgot about the whole thing This was a recurring them with the central characters of this book They just didn t capture my interest or even sympathy Aenea was a typical precocious 12 year old Bettik boring as fuck and De Soya was eually dull and his complete devotion to the obviously shady Catholic Church was really frustrating The secondary characters were uite a bit better fortunately This would have been a much better read if they had been prominent Silenus from the first books returned and was as foul mouthed and ridiculous as ever Cardinal Lourdusamy was a menacing presence when he appeared Father Glaucus was a warm and sympathetic and the swole tunnel dwelling midgets you read that right had a really intriguing and uniue culture establishedWhich brings me to world building I had really been looking forward to the world in this one The world building in the first 2 was among the most vivid and uniue I ve read and I was really looking forward to seeing how the events of the second book would effect the inter planetary society that humanity had built view spoiler I expected a cool Dark Ages type of set up with pockets of civilization struggling to survive after being isolated by the downfall of the farcasters instead the rise of the Pax had pretty much restored society to what it was in the first 2 books hide spoiler

Almost three centuries after the Fall of Hyperion the Time Tombs open and Aenea child of Brawne Lamia and Johnny Keats emerges Along with a former hunting guide named Raul Endymion and android A Bettik Aenea goes on a journey to fulfill her destiny as the one who teaches Only the Pax has other ideas Can Aenea reach her goal without being captured by Father Captain de Soya of the PaxWith all the two star reviews out there I wasn t expecting magic from Endymion Imagine my surprise when I wound up enjoying it uite a bit Endymion felt like rummaging through a box of old possessions you have fond memories of but have forgotten about Only in this case the memories are the hawking mat the Consul s ship the deactivated farcaster portals along the old river Tethys and good old A Bettik And also The Shrike but we won t say much about him other than to say he s still as efficient a killing machine as everWhile not as pants shittingly awesome as the first two books Endymion was still an engaging read and doesn t tarnish the memory of the first two The former Web has changed uite a bit in the 274 years since the Fall of Hyperion Without giving too much away the Catholic church and the cruciforms have melded in a pretty logical way into the Pax and the Pax doesn t want Aenea fulfilling her destiny one bit It makes for a good read Endymion Aenea and A Bettik visit some exotic former Web worlds undergo uite a few harrowing experiences and wind up in a good place to set up the next book Rise of EndymionAs engaging as I found Aenea and her people s travels on the raft I somehow found the bad guys de Soya and the rest to be a interesting cast de Soya was efficient but conflicted and I almost found myself rooting for the poor cruciform bearing bastardDon t let all the negative reviews steer you away All franchises lose some steam by the third installment At least there were no Ewoks in it For fans of the first two books Endymion is not to be missed
