I haven't read this one yet, but I often see it make peoples lists for top Sci-fi novels and it has a respectable 4.21 rating on Goodreads [goodreads.com]. This sale price should last through the end of August.

This and its sequel are the best Sci Fi books I've ever read imo.

Although if you like horror I can't recommend Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons enough! Epic book.

Outstanding book. Series later goes in a weird, but interesting, direction.

Is this a good book? I have a physical copy (since 1997) and audible and ebook( pirated ePub and also paid for with kindle). Same for a couple others like Neil gaimen's American gods. I mean to read them but hard to get started Lel.

Good price for a famous sci-fi novel that still stands up. As others note, it becomes a series and the quality decreases with each book, but certainly worth grabbing this one.

I'd argue that the quality steadily increases, especially considering how all-encompassing the story becomes.

It's easy to write a few segments of interesting pulp sci-fi and mash it together. As good as Hyperion is, what really amazed me was how Simmons continued to envelop those stories into an epic. The series is a master work.
