Finished Hyperion by Dan SImmons - it was deadly. Now reading his novel Summer of Night which is quite good and has a similar story to Stephen King's IT.

The last book that totally engrossed me was My Year of Rest and Relaxation, it's also unbelievably mean-spirited which might make it funny or not, depending on the person. Fairly sure @jonah thinks i'm a bad person for liking it so much though.
Update: Finally started this today, on chapter 3 and I have laughed A LOT. Her descriptions of certain people are so spot on (being of the same age) and living in a near by city. However it annoys me that she said she was born in 1973 but turned 25 in 2000, that doesn't add up. How did no one catch this?

Just read all the Hyperion sequels in one go, they just get better and better, it's easily one of the greatest space opera series there is. Fuck I have to read these again

Right, this bugged me so I went and checked and it's not in my edition, "On August 20, 2000, I turned twenty-seven"
