So somehow I missed Hyperion when it came out (I was in my prime "read all the things" phase then, no idea how it got by me).  Wow, it is so good.  2/3 through the sequel right now, already filled up my Google Play balance to buy the next one when I'm done.

It remains my favorite science fiction series to this day. I found the forced John Keats portions a little tiresome at times but it's a small critique. I'm probably in the minority but I enjoyed the Endymion half of the series (books 3 and 4) the most.

Holy smokes you ain't wrong.  I'm having trouble putting Endymion down to go to sleep haha.

Update: I finished The Dark Forest and moved immediately into Death's End.

This is a great series. I get people's complaints but this is really really good Sci-Fi.

I'll move on to Scalzi after this and then round it out with James SA Corey before I'm free of this sci-fi series hole I find myself in.

Just finished the third book of the 3 Body Problem series. Highly recommend.

The first book was unlike any sci-fi book I've ever read.

The second book might be my favorite sci-fi book I’ve ever read.

The third book had the most complicated but well-explained mind-blowing concepts in a single fictional book I’ve ever read.

On to the next series. I think I'm going to jump to a fantasy series like NK Jemisin's before I get back into a Sci-Fi book.
