Y force as well as mercantile corporations "Their Control Was Established By Finding A " control was established by finding a to provide eternal life to all who accept the church the cruciform from Books 1 and 2 Once accepted the cruciform will rebuild the brain and body even after death This power to bestow resurrection or take it away has given the church control of the empire In Books 1 and 2 the cruciform causes decreased mental acuity with each rebirth ntil one is barely a living automaton but the church somehow figured out how to fix THAT ISSUE SO THAT THE REBIRTH issue so that the rebirth full personality and mind back *AgainAenea Raul And Bettick *Raul and Bettick essentially on a mission to break this control over human society and convince humanity to reject the cruciform They are on the run from the church and its military as well as other sinister forces within the church There are numerous competing agendas and motives going on behind the scenes to which we are not initially privyBook 3 keeps L'art de faire l'amour une femme up the frenetic pace of Books 1 2 It s a thrilling suspenseful race to survive and keep moving to the next planet in their journey Each setting is distinct and provides new challenges Simmons does a great job keepingp the tension and the reader s fear for the characters livesBook 4 is where it fell apart for me The forward momentum dies and the story becomes excessively maudlin and self indulgent Props for tying together most if not all of the loose ends Yes bravo on the brilliant plot twists that Simmons has worked in to the narrative and then resolved in Book 4 However boo for the editing weak characters and maudlin emotionsFirst of all despite the fact that we have spent roughly 1200 pages with Raul and Aenea and reveled in Raul s obsession with her hair light brown with blond highlights if you care to know I never really saw the connection that made them fall in love They were together a lot and they were both stubborn and strong willed but other than that it was basically just appearance and proximity that seemed to bring them together His mindless devotion to her certainly contributed but they really didn t seem to connect Simmons just didn t have the writing chops to create the believable illusion of two people falling in love But that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to my issues with Book 4Some of the Fastgood Cuisine - Healthy et gourmand ualities that nagged at me in the earlier books became prominent in the finale and some other annoying aspects grew to really frustrate me I hated how longwinded his scenic descriptions became Pages and pages of self indulgent set dressing He was in love with his world building And worse than the notite there artificiality of the central relationship there was a kind of sappy Le Fasting - La méthode de jeûne intermittent ultra efficace pour perdre du poids et vivre longtemps uality to the main romance that really drove me off the cliff How many times can I stand to read my Beloved Ugh Combined with the sex sceneswhich I had disliked in the early books too It s extremely difficult to write a sex scene and not come across as pornographic A writer needs to have aniue voice and a strong original point of view to pull them off The weightless sex scene in Book 4just dreadful Also the main character was so obtuse and the delay of communication between him and Aenea drove me nuts Simmons clearly and intentionally made Raul oblivious and obtuse and further invented reasons why Aenea had to withhold information from him to postpone the big reveals Petit journal de ma grossesse until the end It was incredibly frustrating especially because several of the big secrets were obvious I found myself speed reading through much of the text just to get to the plot points Not goodIn the end I m glad that I read Book 4 in order to find out how the entire story came together But Simmons really needed an editor to crack the whip on this last installment of an otherwise epic science fiction narrative 4 out of 5 stars for Book 3 2 out of 5 stars for Book 4 This book could have been half the length and I would have been thrilledToo much philosophizing Too muchseless description too much exposition of the science behind why the characters were able to do what they did The plot twist if it was meant to be one was pretty damned obvious immediatelyAgain de Soya was much compelling than any of the major characters and he s relegated to an even less important role in this book SO DISAPPOINTING He may be one of my favorite characters encountered in my recent reading adventuresI am glad I read this just so I could learn how the story ended Endymion did leave a decent number of loose ends but again I would have been so happy if it had been shorterIf you don t want to waste your time reading this and parts of it are good really but you have to wade through a lot of garbage to get to.

Those parts but you read Endymion and want to know how it ends I will gladly spoil the plot for you SeriouslyEdit 122011 I had to come back and remove another star simply because I remembered how ridiculous the whole view spoilerkidney stone hide spoiler THE RISE OF ENDYMION is the fourth and final volume of Dan Simmons Hyperion saga and the conclusion of the storyline begun in ENDYMION I only plodded through that book because I wanted to reach the end and with THE RISE OF ENDYMION even that motivation almost dried QUICK DIRTY: L'ANTIMANUEL DE PREPARATION PHYSIQUE upThe problems are legion The book is overlong with huge sections that just serve no legitimate purpose such as Raul s time in the Temple Hanging in Air Simmons extends his work as much as he can to give it an epic feel but it endsp seeming boring and goofyRaul s love for Aenea continues to border on pedophilia for the first few hundred pages of the work and then it graduates to simple obsession if only because she s grown Protocoles de sophrologie -

The Rise of Endymion is the fourth and last of the full length Hyperion Cantos novels by Dan Simmons It is a well written exciting thought provoking and wistful conclusion to one of my favorite series As I finished reading it memories of watching The Wizard of Oz for the first time on my grandmother s 15 RCA television the kind set into a wooden cabinet ran through my mind Little Mr Windup Bird so sad that he couldn t jump into the television and go on an adventure with Dorothy Toto The Tin Man The Cowardly Lion and The Scarecrow The whole family watched *television together in those days Grandpa sitting in the big smoking cigarettes and drinking *together in those days Grandpa sitting in the big armchair smoking cigarettes and drinking Grandma on her favorite couch Me with my eyes glued to the screen Is that what Aenea meant by learning the voices of the dead She certainly invoked some voices from my pastHyperion cantos is a very special series It has all the wonderous settings high adventure and intrigue one would expect from a science fantasy adventure but it also has the courage to state some very bold opinions on some of life s profound Les furtifs uestions Simmons is brutally honest in sharing his views on the nature of religion love technology faith government closed mindedness and many monolithic issues The opinions he puts forward in addition to being bold are well thought out and above all empathetic We are treated to a complex and mature world view that doesn t rely on binary beliefs or dole out high handed punishment to the bad guys Hyperion Cantos is above all a triumph of diversity and acceptance Something we couldse a little of in the real world I thinkAll of the main characters going back to the first book are well developed interesting and organic Even in a series that deals so extensively with morality empathy and mankind s struggle to evolve I always felt the characters were doing and saying things I could relate to and making plausible decisionsThe setting is as vast and diverse as any other I ve read From the razor sharp sea of grass on Hyperion to the ice caves of Sol Draconi Septem Simmons s imagination flew high and Projet oXatan uninhibited on a Hawking MatThe Cantos story itself is truly ambitious and succeeds on all counts and spans multiple genres adventure horror sci fi cyberpunk romance philosophy So many that it almost creates its own genre This is truly a must read series I would recommend to anyone and everyoneJust as little Mr Windup Bird said a tearful farewell to Dorothy at the end of The Wizard of Oz all those years ago his older self must do the same with Anaea Raul Father De Soya Father Paul Dure Rachel and the rest of the friends I made on this wonderful journey5 stars We re off to see The Wizard the wonderful Wizard of Oz This review is for both Endymion book 3 in the Hyperion Cantos tetrology and Rise of Endymion which is book 4 If you have not read Books 1 and 2 take a look at my review here first I was a big fan of Books 1 and 2 but I m split right down the middle on Books 3 and 4 Book 3 was a thrilling sci fi adventure ride but Book 4 drove mep a wall Different kind of ride The following review probably won t make much sense or be worth reading Les Larmes de Saël: tome 1 unless you are familiar with Books 1 and 2 or my previous review And I will advise you to stop here if you have any interest in Books 1 2 because while I will avoid spoilers for 3 4 I can t help including spoilers from 1 2 entirelyWe arrive in Book 3 almost 300 years after the end of Book 2 The story begins on the world of Hyperion but has very little to do with that planet thereafter By the end of Book 4 we know bits and pieces of the fates of the various characters from Books 1 and 2 Some than others but by the end we get enough to feel like their stories are relatively closed The story primarily centers around two new characters One is the daughter of Brawne Lamia and the cybrid John Keats who we ve been told is The One Who Teaches orthe new messiah The second character is her protector when she is young and then lover when she is oldershe ages faster than him due to some faster than light travel sleight of hand Raul Endymion They also have an android sidekick named A BettickIn this leap forward in time the human galaxy is no longer dependent on the Technocore and has rejected the advantages provided by this AI community which had been manipulating human civilization for its own purposes in Books 1 2 but as such have lost their ability to essentially teleport via farcasters as well as FTL communication systems We learn that human civilization has now fallennder control of a theocratic dictatorship run by the reinvigorated Catholic Church The church controls a sprawling militar.
