really liked it

Hyperion. A story that goes beyond, religions, space and time with the right amount of wit, mystery and science.

Hyperion is a mysterious planet with a mysterious enemy within it. And these 6 are taking a pilgrim towards it, each a different character from the other and each with a story to tell. You don't learn about hyperion by being on the planet but by the stories of the pilgrims of how they happen to get to be on that ship.

The stories expand to hundreds of years (because of inter galactic frozen space travel of course) which include aliens, androids, space portals, time travel, mysticism, poetry and so on. There's a lot to each story and to each character and every single one is enjoyable.
