Hyperion - Dan Simmons

A few years ago, I started a book club with some friends. Every time we meet, we discuss a book that someone in the group chose and then introduce the next choice. Every person in the group gets to pick the book of their choice--no limitations. This time around it was my choice. So far, no one has chosen a Science Fiction book so I asked for recommendations at Barnes and Noble and chose Hyperion by Dan Simmons.

The book won the Hugo Award in 1990 and is about a group of pilgrims that go to the planet Hyperion to confront and find the answers to the riddles of their lives. Mixed in with this is a mysterious being called The Shrike whom some worship, others fear, and some want to destroy (paraphrased from the back of the book).

The book has a Canterbury Tales feel to it with each pilgrim sharing their own personal story.

I am about 100 pages into the book and REALLY enjoying it so far. I've read the first tale (The Priest's Tale) which was amazing! I'll write more as soon as I finish the book.
