I'm finished with Hyperion – while it's a good scifi book, for me it didn' t live up to the hype. I also didn't expect such a lack of resolution in favor of a cliffhanger ending.

Now I A Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet.

@rixx aside from hype, what did you think of it? several of my friends have been singing its praises

@gingervitis Hyperion was good, but not great. The universe is well-described, there's a lot more showing than telling. We see the world through five only tentatively connected stories embedded in a larger arc, which is a nice decision, but hampered the pacing a bit. It's a book that became better in my mind a few weeks after reading it.
