The Fail of Hyperion


While the first book, Hyperion, can be considered as a thrilling collection of short stories, this book feels contrived and boring, written without much attention to style. And while the worldbuilding in the first book was definitely interesting, nothing much is added here.


A journalist of the Washinton Post wrote "Matches and perhaps even surpasses Isaac Asimov", and someone of the NYT wrote "bears comparision with Foundation and Dune". Of course, the publishing company didn't hesitate to put such high praise on the back cover. All things considered, they are insults to both Dune and Asimov's Foundation.
