When I first read about this book, the reviews said that the whole book was told from poet John Keats' perspective rather than being another collection of tales. First, that made no sense; John Keats is a historical figure not a fictional character several hundred years in the future. Second, I was disappointed because I wanted to follow the pilgrims' journey in Hyperion and find out what happened to them.
Turns out that while this book is indeed told from John Keats' perspective (in a way that the author makes seem logical), we also visit regularly with the pilgrims and continue to follow their journey.
I think the biggest take-home message here is "trust the author; he knows what he's doing". There were several twists that I didn't see coming - but made total sense in hindsight. The characters are well-developed. The overall theme is highly relevant to today's society. This book is a thoroughly enjoyable read and also very clever.
I look forward to finding out what happens in Endymion.
Excellent 2nd book with a very good plot, writing and finish. One of the best I've read for years.
