Endymion



Endymion (Book 1) Lyrics. A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Endymion (Book 2) Lyrics. Bewildered, Endymion sought around, and shook each bed Of covert flowers in vain; and then he flung Himself along the grass. What gentle tongue, What whisperer disturb'd his gloomy rest? It was a nymph uprisen to the breast In the fountain's pebbly margin, and she stood 'Mong lilies, like the youngest of the brood.

The first book of Endymion by John Keats consists of three stanzas which can be split into smaller sections for a simpler analysis. Endymion is named for the Aeolian shepherd and king of Elis in Greek mythology. He was said to rule at Olympia and is best known for the love he bares Selene, the moon. This had led to many, including Pliny the Elder, to cast Endymion as an astronomer or at least as one who is quite familiar with celestial movements.

Endymion is the third science fiction novel by American writer Dan Simmons, part of his Hyperion Cantos fictional universe. The novel was shortlisted for the 1997 Locus Award.

Endymion (when a book) may be: Endymion (Dan Simmons novel), 1996 science fiction novel within Dan Simmons s Hyperion Cantos Endymion (Disraeli), 1880 novel. Endymion (poem) - Endymion is a poem by John Keats first published in 1818.

Nationwide praise for ENDYMION. An exemplary specimen of an all-too-rare subgenre: literate space opera, replete with believable characters facing hard moral choices. A major wor. immons doesn’t just promise; he delivers.

BOOK I. Therefore, 'tis with full happiness that I Will trace the story of Endymion. The very music of the name has gone Into my being, and each pleasant scene Is growing fresh before me as the green Of our own vallies: so I will begin Now while I cannot hear the city's din;40 Now while the early budders are just new, And run in mazes of the youngest hue About old forests; while the willow.

The Hyperion Series is the only Sci-Fi books that I have re-read. I absolutely love this story. It is what I set the bar at for world building, character development, plot, twits, turns, love, hate, emotion, and war in ALL other books I read. The Hyperion series is my Gold Standard.

As far as this book in particular, it is the epic conclusion of the 4 book series. Most people I recommend the series to usually can't get this far. The concepts are very complex and seem mundane if you don't see the core of the story: Love and empathy are what hold the universe together and connect us as humans to each other.

I really appreciate Dan Simmons and what he has done with these 2 "duologies". The books pacing, characters, and world building are top notch, and what I think is most interesting (as I said also for Book 1 Hyperion) is his use of technology within his writing prior to the emergence of the Internet and today's modern age of technology availability. The accuracy and thoughtfulness of the world building means these books are relevant when they were written and are able to stay relevant and interesting even 20 - 30 years later.

The storyline of Endymion and Rise of Endymion is steady, the books started a bit slowly, but by mid-point I would eventually get engrossed and was not able to put the book down (as had happened for the first 2 books). I think the characters are very approachable, and the storyline, told from multiple viewpoints never gets stale. Using the first person narrator for the character of Raul was well done, not campy, and the eventual conclusion to the series was a very large satisfying culmination of both books. There is the strong interwoven "Jesus and faith" typology in the book, which I didn't mind. It wasn't overpowering, it wasn't trying to prove a point, but was really just a means and a vehicle to move the story along its arc.

Overall, I highly recommend the all 4 books in the series.

This book was very enjoyable in its own way. It's definitely nothing like the first two books in the series. Mr. Simmons is a very good story teller and the characters are well developed as usual. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because the first two books were so great and this one comes much later in time with different characters. If you're a fan of the first two books and enjoy Mr. Simmons's writing style I would recommend it.

Epic Sci Fi. The River Tethys flows on more than 150 planets that are light years apart, but connected by "farcaster" portals which enables the Tethys to flow unimpeded on so many planets. Imagine sailing across the galaxy on a sailing ship. The Hyperion-Endymion novels are peopled by great characters and fantastic planets joined together in a "web". Any reader will be enthralled.

I loved the first book in this 4-book series and found the second to be a big letdown. Endymion recaptures a lot, if not all, of the magic of Hyperion with adventures galore and a simpler narrative than book 2. Unfortunately it never quite makes it to heights of Hyperion but if you have made it through one and two you really owe it to yourself to continue on. You won't be disappointed.

Was not expecting to fall so hard for this series, I was just trying to kill time until Sanderson's new one came out and now I'm not even reading it because I am so in love with this series that I need to finish it first!

I'd read the first two books in the Hyperion Cantos many years ago, and enjoyed them then. This third and the final fourth book are a continuation, but with different characters hundreds of years later. The four books are really two halves of the series. This book did a good job of taking the threads of the first half and weaving them into a recognizable and renewed story. It's not a hard-science story, more action/fantasy driven by the clashing societies, and the nature of good and evil when those forces have nearly unlimited power.
This series just keeps getting better. I'm already onto the 4th book and I don't know what I'm going to do with myself when its over! The new characters are great, while holding true to the Hyperion universe. The plot thickens and only gets better. I'd give it 10 stars if I could!
