I found I enjoyed the series best at 1.25x speed, that way the pauses that the narrator uses aren't too long, and he doesn't read so fast as to sound annoying.
I felt the boom was long enough as it is, and I really like long books as they keep me awake on my really long drives for work.
This boom and series has a great story overall and is definitely worth a read and or listen!
The series was slow at start but the ending was well worth the time spent listening on the book. I liked that there where more descriptions of how the culture and technology worked in the hyperion universe.
Reading scifi and biographys, hmm
This was a great book. Great series.
I thought I had it figured out but there were twists.
I don't want to spoil anything, finish the series and read this one. Excellent story.
most amazing trilogy follow up ever. in the Hyperion universe a whole new story unfolds that very much rounds out the original. you find out what finally happens in humanity's struggle with the techno core. entirely new characters visit with old favorites but their story is their own. the future values expressed in this work will really set your mind thinking and hoping.
