Books that got me into Sci Fi

  1. Hyperion
    The whole series is amazing, and the character of the Shrike is one of the best written characters ever
  2. Dune
    Not the greatest sci-fi novel of all time but the first 1-3 are worth a read. It gets really out there when they go 5k years into the future
  3. Ilium
    Not as good as Hyperion, but dude can write scifi, this one has a deeper mix of characters from classic literature. Namely from the Homer and Shakespeare.
