5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets, 22 Dec. 2006
This review is from: The Endymion Omnibus: Endymion, The Rise Of Endymion (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Its hard to think about the two books here without bringing in the two included in the Hyperion omnibus. The saga as a whole includes glimpses of an imagined past and future which I still don't understand having read the whole Cantos through twice, and I'm still not sure exactly who, what, why, how and when the Shrike is. I'd love Dan Simmons to release some notes or reflections on the whole thing which tidies that stuff up. That criticism, however is only a minor one, and I make it only because the four books as a whole are so involving that you want any gaps at all filled in. The four books are imaginitive, uplifting, gripping and the last book is profoundly moving. Yes, there are times when the plot slows down a bit. But when it delivers, boy.....

I'll probably read these four books again once every 2-3 years from now. The only other book I do that with is Tolkein's Lord of the Rings. Okay, so I'm a Tolkein geek, but don't let that put you off if you are not. It doesn't get any better than this.
