En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Dan Simmons, né en 1948 dans l'Illinois, aux États-Unis, a eu très jeune la vocation de l'écriture. Diplômé de littérature, il a été enseignant pendant plus de quinze ans.
En 1982, Dan Simmons a fait des débuts très remarqués en littérature. Fasciné par la transcendance du mal et l'horreur de la souffrance, il est souvent présenté comme un spécialiste de la terreur. C'est pourtant la science-fiction qui lui a inspiré son chef-d'œuvre, Les cantos d'Hypérion (Hypérion en 1989 et La chute d'Hypérion en 1990), un grand cycle cosmogonique habité par les ombres de Keats et de Dante, qui se poursuit avec deux autres volets, Endymion (1996) et L'éveil d'Endymion (1997).
Il revient aujourd'hui à la science-fiction avec un diptyque magistral inspiré de l'Iliade, Ilium et Olympos.

Format: Poche
Ce livre est un véritable chef-d'oeuvre de la science fiction, tant par le sujet que par la façon dont celui-ci est traité. Le cadre est assez copliqué : un certain nombre d'humains qui ont un lien avec la planète d'Hypérion et le gros monstres plein de piquants y sont renvoyés pour un dernier pèlerinage afin de rencontrer le "Shrike" (le monstre, considéré un peu comme un dieu).
Le but de ce premier volume est de présenter la première partie du pèlerinage, qui mènera les héros jusqu'aux Tombes du Temps, repère su Shrike. Mais ce n'est pas un simple voayge qui nous est ici présenté : Simmons présente tour à tour l'histoire personnelle de chacun des personnages, ce qui offre une véritable mosaïque de styles et de types de paysages au lecteur. Chaque personnage a une raison de vouloir retourner sur la planète, et les biographies de chacun des personnages vous réserveront des trésors de surprise, de suspense, et surtout d'une imagination dont je ne peux que souligner l'originalité et l'intérêt.
Ce livre, dont le succès a été souligné par la critique, est donc un véritable trésor qui se fait multiple et changeant grâce à la technique narrative parfaitement maîtrisée par l'auteur.
Un livre purement et simplement exceptionnel.

La digne suite du 1er tome, avec plus d'action et, enfin, l'explication des nombreux mystères dévoilés dans "Hyperion".
Je conseille la lecture en Anglais, faisable avec un niveau "moyen+" (même si le vocabulaire pose parfois problème on comprend facilement le contexte).
Au final, c'est un livre captivant décrivant une aventure humaine originale et des personnages solides/crédibles.
Mon regret : quelques passages descriptifs un peu longuets.

Ça fait presque 10 ans que j'ai lu les deux volumes de Hyperion, et je me souviens toujours de l'intêret et l'émotion de les lire. Je les recherche sur amazon à present pour les relire (ils m'avaient été prétés à l'époque) et acheter d'autres livres de Dan Simmons parce qu'il est un excellet écrivain. Croyez-moi, je n'aime pas la science-fiction.

Hyperion was absolutely great! This... left me with a sensation of total waste of time. It doesn't deliver. It's like reading a masterpiece and then reading how the plot is turned into some stupid horrid videogame.

If you enjoyed "Hyperion" and are curious about what happens next, I recommend you keep away from this book. It won't ruin the first book's read, but it definitively desecrates a little what SImmons what able to accomplish in "Hyperion".

If you still need to know... read it but do not expect anything great. It's mediocre.

Disturbing and deeply moving 12 juin 2000
Par Ilana Teitelbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Though 'Hyperion' is dependent upon its sequel and ends with a tooth-grinding cliff-hanger, it is in its way self-contained. 'Hyperion' is centered on the six pilgrims' tales, their pasts, the terrible needs which drive them to confront what is almost certain death--or worse. Each of the tales is written in a unique style, and each introduces a new element to bind the story as a whole. All are wrenching, even disturbing in their intensity, in their focus on the deepest possible of human suffering.
Do not read this book if you're looking for a light, fun read. In fact, forget it. This book defies all expectations, serves up horrors that were hitherto unimaginable if you are even remotely sane. Dan Simmons is in this book exploring a world that has lost its soul and is decaying by inches. To underscore that decay, the tales focus on the underpinnings of humanity--death, love, parenthood, art--and twist them into the most horrific contortions possible. The tale of the cruciform, for example, investigates with terrifying clarity the possibility of there being a fate far, far worse than death.
As a result, the quest of each pilgrim has a greater significance than being merely a quest; in the empty world which Simmons creates, they are pioneers searching for a depth beyond the tested parameters of their rotting civilization. The atmosphere of the book is overshadowed by the horror of the Shrike, yet does not completely dim the hope of what might be.
Steeped in the tangled sorrows that drive them, the characters do not always engender sympathy. I found Kassad shallow and difficult to relate to, and the explicit sex a turn-off. However, Martin Silenus, Sol Weintaub and the Consul--to name a few--are fully realized, complex characters, and even at their worst moments, still by their very existence encourage the reader to keep reading simply to learn their fates.

Worth the price just for the tale of Sol & Rachael. 18 avril 2000
Par dsrussell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
An account of six tales from seven desparate travelers as they make a pilgrimage to Hyperion to seek out one the most terrifying monster ever created in fiction, the Shrike. They all have various reasons to risk their lives, and all hold the belief that whoever survives the Shrike, one prayer will be granted.
All six stories (novellas in their own right) are brilliantly conceived, and every reader here has his or her own personal favorite. While the priest's tale is one of the most harrowing I've ever read, I was personally moved by the tale of Sol and Rachael. As a parent, I found this tale especially haunting. As another reviewer mentioned, I will not think of the words "...later alligator...'while crocodile..." in the same light ever again.
This is science fiction told in a grand scale. It is sweeping in scope and Simmons' narrative is extremely imaginative, often fanciful, yet sometimes yawn inspiring. It is not an easy read. For those that know little or nothing about the poet, Keats (me included), much of the narrative may become ambiguous or boring. But despite that (or because of that), Simmons spins a masterful tale of the travelers and of the great war against the Hegmony and the Technocore.
Unfortunately, "Hyperion" is only the first part of a two-part story, and ends unfinished. One has to purchase (unknowingly) "The Fall of Hyperion" to complete the story. My suggestion would be to purchase them both at the same time and enjoy--it's well worth the money.
Although this novel won't be to everyones' taste (what novel is?), I thought it to be one of the best novels I've read in many a year. Between 1 and 10, I give "Hyperion" a solid 8. Had the novels been double bound and sold as one (as they should have been), I would have given "Hyperion" an enthusiastic 9.

Possibly my favourite sci-fi ever 25 avril 2001
Par Keith Fraser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Hyperion is truly incredible. As well as being a science fiction version of the Canterbury Tales, it also sets out a breathtaking and at the same time chilling vision of what humanity's future might be like. It creates a spectacular and wonderfully detailed world where citizens step through farcaster portals to have lunch on another planet, mysterious artificial intelligences scheme and plot, so-called 'barbarian' Ousters migrate between the stars, and a terrifying demon-machine called the Shrike stalks the area around a set of mysterious artifacts which appear to be travelling back in time. This world is populated with all sorts of fascinating characters and cultures, such as an artificial recreation of the poet Keats, a girl doomed to age backwards and a planet of peaceful environmentalists crushed for daring to resist modernisation.
This first book of four, consisting almost exclusively of the stories told by seven pilgrims (a priest, a soldier, a poet, a scholar, a detective, a starship captain and a diplomat) as they travel across the planet Hyperion to meet the Shrike, is essentially a gigantic prologue which sets the scene for the tumultuous events of The Fall of Hyperion. It builds up a picture of the Hegemony (the 'established' human grouping) as what I take as being the author's idea of the inevitable product of today's Western civilisation, and establishes the background to the crisis that has brought the seven pilgrims together, which appears at first to be a simple war of aggression by the Ousters but turns out to have much deeper ramifications involving the AI TechnoCore, the Shrike and the future of humanity. The stories they tell also leave many unanswered questions and mysteries that will hopefully leave the reader running to find the second book. Each one is distinct - some horrific, some merely moving, all intriguing. I have to say that the Priest's Tale, the first to be told, will always be special because it left me thinking: 'Wow! Could this get any better?!' And best of all, because this is the first book, you don't have to grimace too much at the annoying continuity errors that increasingly crop up as the series progresses.
As I said, the book leaves many questions to be answered in the next one. However, the greatest mystery of Hyperion is not the unknown purpose of the Shrike or the sinister plans of the Core. No, the greatest mystery of Hyperion is: WHY DOESN'T THE CONSUL HAVE A NAME?! ;-)

The First Book Set 'Em Up 19 janvier 2000
Par WolfDaddy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
And this book knocks 'em over. I love reading stories in which "everything you know is wrong". Simmons takes the characters and events recounted in "Hyperion" and swallows them whole in a tale that had me scraping my brains off the back wall. The introduction of M. Severn and Meina Gladstone makes for two of the more fascinating and deep characters I think I've ever read. The former is a cipher, reflecting the events taking place hundreds of light-years away (those of "Hyperion") and interpreting them through a dead poet's thoughts. The other is a master politician, leader of a Hegemony that encompasses more billions of souls than almost is comprehensible. The sacrifices they both make to save themselves save humanity itself, but at a terrible price.
Some sections of the book are slow (I found the myriad battles with the Shrike tedious) the majority of the tale is fast moving, incredibly rich and believable, and astounding in its plot and details. This book and its predecessor are simply two of the finest works of literature in any genre, and are utterly entertaining.
I've handed copies of the "Hyperion" books over to probably 20 friends over the last 8-9 years, and had never had any of them returned to me. I don't care ... these books are *that* good.

Space opera at it's best! The best series ever! 21 juillet 2000
Par Darren Burton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Hyperion and the rest of the series is the best science fiction series yet written. I do not make this claim lightly. I have read alot of science fiction and the only books that I would say that come close are The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Although Across the Sea of Suns and the rest of the Galactic Center series by Gregory Benford was another favorite.
Hyperion is one planet in a large federation of planets which are at their political peak. This book is the story of 7 people picked to go on a pilgramage to the time tombs on Hyperion to see if they can figure out what is happening. The time tombs are guarded by a creature called the Shrike. The Srike can move forward and backward through time at will and seems to be invulnerable to any type of weapon. The 7 people are strangers to each other, but they have on common link, they have all encountered the Shrike before and been allowed to live. There is a legend and even a cult religion that has grown up around the Shrike for hundreds of years. It is said that the Shrike can grant any wish. Pilgrims that go searching for the Shrike must travel in groups of prime numbers or everyone will die. They must approach the time tombs on foot or everyone will die. According to legend, the Shrike somehow interviews everyone in the party if they have followed these rules and one person will have their wish granted and all the other party members will be killed. Also, the time tombs are moving backwards in time, and the fear is that once the time tombs stop that a whole army of tens of thousands of Shrikes will be unleashed. But this is just one thread in the vast tapestry of the story which grows in complexity with each book. What is happening on Hyperion is at the center of the collapse of this federation of thousands of planets that is on the brink of collapse. It is a facinating tale.
Enjoy.
