Point of View

     I just finished reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons over the holidays. This was like an anthology of tales all told in first-person point of view. The sequel, Fall of Hyperion, is mostly 1st person except for the 'memory/backstory within a dream' parts. 
     I'm wondering if most sci-fi readers have a preference. Both books are great, but this style of narrative is generally found more in detective novels than in sci-fi. 
     The Hyperion saga has been recommended to me by several people, and I have started the second one. I tend to do my reading in binges, with no reading for a long stretch, then several one after another.
