    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookOh frack it I’ve started and deleted and restarted this review too many times already Dan Simmons’ Ilium and Olympos have left me speechless If you ask my wife you’ll discover that’s a rare occurrence indeed I don’t think I can put together an entirely coherent review much less something with any significant insight on the author’s ideas So I’ll just share what I’m able to get out in a little solitary brainstorming sessionFirst of all you have to realize

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookContains spoilers towards the endThis is my least favorite bookIt's not the worst book I've ever read Manos The Hands of Fate is perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen but it's not my least favorite It takes than simple technical ineptness to rise or sink to the rank of my least favorite A least favorite work needs to commit some special crime Olympos' crime is that it took the plot threads of Ilium one of the top two or three most creative and ambitious science fiction books I've yet encountered and bungled them to an astonishing almost

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookMAJOR SPOILERS AHEADI have tremendous problems with this book not the least of which is that I wanted to enjoy it so badly Simmons has a talent for writing good scenes and decent characters but the overall structure of this book is so sloppy and disappointing that I can't help but feel cheated I felt this way at the end of Rise of Endymion as well and I'm starting to think that it's systemic to all of his epic sci fi narratives He comes up with a neat idea creates hint that he's going to explain everything at the end and after thousands of pages arbitrarily ends things without any sense of resolutionWhat was this book about? What was the conflict? You begin thinking that it's about the gods of Olympos and the uantum disturbances they're creating that threaten the very existence of the solar system Okay But then it turns out that the Olympian gods are pawns of larger gods or Gods including Setebos and Prospero At this p

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookI enjoyed the beginning of this book as it picks up where Ilium left off Leading up to about the middle of the book the story line is interesting and exciting And then wham Stinky turds from there on out The rest of the story is a classic example of everything I can't stand about bad science fictionNo or very little insight into the science The author just assumes you know what the ? he is talking aboutSo many people and characters interacting in blurry loops of potential meaning that go nowhere For example about 58 the way through you are introduced to a historical character named Ahman Ferdinand Mark Alonzo Khan Ho Tep Say that three times fast I'm sorry but as a reader I'm so tired of being brutalized by authors with names like th

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookIf you ever plan to read the Ilium duo logy then i recommend doing it back to back I picked up Olympos 18 months after Ilium and experienced a great deal of confusion My usual go to Wikipedia let me down so i resorted to finding spoiler reviews which gave me snippets of names events and what went down I would still need to re read Ilium to fully appreciate OlymposIt continues in the same vein as Ilium with the three story lines still separate but slowly making their way to the inevitable convergence; the Moravecs and Hockenberry are investigating the uantum disturbances emanating from old Earth the Trojans and Greeks are fighting the Gods of Mount Olympos and Harman Ada and the rest of the Old Style Humans are fighting the Voynix who've turn against themMuch like his other science fiction classic Hyperion Olympos is thoroughly entertaining and packed with philosophy psychics history and likable charact

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookDan Simmons' Olympos consists mainly in two threads In the one most of our various characters Harman and Daeman the moravecs Odysseus Achilles et al undertake long journeys in time and space bringing them at an unbearably slow pace towards the future Earth On these journeys they endure various ordeals of little conseuence and a great deal of nothing occurs and is described at great length and in extraordinary detail by Simmons In the other thread we are treated to pages and pages of expository monologues from Prospe

    PDF Olympos PDF µ ✓ apolloonline.co ✓ olympos ebok, Olympos eBookWelllll I just can't get excited about this book now that it's over After wading through 900 dense pages of literary influenced sci fi I feel a little cheated by where we ended up Harman's journey into what was supposed to be the Earth's past our future I guess was pretty dull considering the tantalizing hints Simmons drops I love the idea for example that a Global Caliphate arose sometime in t
