Well, the beginning of this book describes it well. You are not reading it for the right reason. And well, i was not. I was hoping for a sequel to the Hyperion Cantos. I got something else entirely. The first two books were far deeper, focusing on story less, and deeper thoughts and messages more. The stories were still incredible, they just were not the focus.

This book on the other hand, focuses on the story and on character development far more than the first. This book is a rollicking good time, with less moral/philosophical background when compared to the others. It is the Indiana Jones of the series.

I loved it. The story is too much fun to not love. And guess what. A certain someone refuses to die. 243 years after he should have. Sigh. Life is unfair.

Basically, if you like the author, read it.
You like adventure sci-fi? Read it.
You liked the first books? Read it.
You want a sequel to the first books? Read it, but do not expect too much. But hey, there is still plenty to satisfy an adventurer/science fiction buff/coolest person in the world like, I don't know...
