The Gods of Riverworld (Riverworld Saga, No 5) by Farmer, Philip Jose and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at   From award-winning author Philip Jose Farmer comes his most famous science fiction work: the first combined edition of the first two Riverworld novels, To Your Scattered Bodies Go and The Fabulous Riverboat. Imagine that every human who ever lived, from the earliest Neanderthals to the present, is resurrected after death on the banks of an astonishing and seemingly endless river on an /5(10).

  Gods of Riverwold is the fifth and final chapter in Philip Jose Farmer's New York Times bestselling classic SF series, Riverworld Thirty billion people from throughout Earth's history have been resurrected along the great and winding waterways of : Tom Doherty Associates. Gods of Riverworld gets downright silly. This fifth book seems like an afterthought, as the earthlings, having taken over the tower stronghold and solved the mystery of Riverworld, now try to uncover a mysterious renegade in the tower and mix it up with a bunch of cartoonish characters. It all seems somewhat arbitrary.

  The unfavorable reviews of this book kept me from buying it. But finally I couldn't resist finding out how Farmer closed out the series. Buy, was I pleasently surpirsed. Of the 5 RiverWorld books in the series, book 1 was my favorite while book 5 is my second favorite. Book 5 closes the show sure but what leads to the close is fascinating to me/5(5). Reissued to follow the Syfy Channel film of Riverworld, this fourth book in the classic Riverworld series continues the adventures of Samuel Clemens and Sir Richard Francis Burton as they travel through Farmer's strange and wonderful Riverworld, a place where everyone who ever lived is simultaneously resurrected along a single river valley that stretches over an entire planet.
