re: Anyone read the Hyperion series by Dan Simmons?

You read all 4 books in less than a month? Where do y'all find the time to read?

It took me 6 months to read the first book. In my defense, I started it, got about 1/3 of the way through, and then about 3 months went by where life was so hectic I wasn't doing any reading. So I started it over from the beginning.

I started Fall of Hyperion about 2 weeks ago and I've been trying to find more time to read. I just finished chapter 33 (that was a pretty huge chapter) during my lunch break and holy crap! The first book was phenomenal. Second book is different but equally great. I'm trying to push through so I can hopefully read the other 2 by the end of the year.

Loving this series so far and wish I would've read it before I had kids.

It’s a long story but work has been very slow.

The first book is insane. It’s worth reading all 4 books. He ties up the ending nicely, but the whole thing is insane. As another poster put it: WTF did I just read? (In a good way )

Book 1 is fantastic. Book 2 was decent. Book 3 was decent. Book 4 was a let down.

Worth reading though, especially book 1. I generally like dan simmons books.

I got the first book for Christmas. I finished the Poet's story last night. I'm really enjoying it so far.

I just finished this and started on book 2 yesterday.

Priest's story was easily my favorite, although I laughed my arse off at the poet's limited vocabulary. Goddamn poopoo!

My wife asked for a Kindle Paperwhite for her birthday. After hearing me talk about this series enough, she wants to read it.
