Review: The Fall of Hyperion (Hyperion Cantos #2)

User Review  - Thomas - Goodreads

More straightforward that first of series. Good ideas. Didn't like the long runs of prose. Felt old and outdated, but it is old. Story not as good as first. Political parts were the best. Too many characters to really keep up with where they all were at. A slog to get through. Read full review
