    Based on the Riverworld books by Philip José Farmer where all of humanity that ever lived has awoken alongside a river that completely covers a world. A one shot look at what the experience might be for someone other than the main characters of the books and .   Directed by Kari Skogland. With Brad Johnson, Karen Holness, Emily Lloyd, Jeremy Birchall. Hale, an American astronaut dies and is reincarnated with other persons who have lived throughout all of human history and end up on a mysterious planet called 'Riverworld'. The humans are left to their own devices and create tribal fiefdoms and succumb to brutal wars and raids/10(K).

    Farmer is a master of creating worlds, and Riverworld's probing of history and religion, mixed with a world of seemingly endless life is a perfect example. The only drawback is the other books in the series haven't been released yet- Let alone The World of Tiers series. 7 people found this helpful. (The fourth book in the Riverworld series) In the fourth and concluding volume of the Riverworld series, literally every who has ever lived, including Sir Richard Burton, Mark Twain, and Herman Goering, is resurrected along the banks of an enormous river on a mysterious planet.

    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 Gods of Riverworld (Riverworld Saga, No 5) by Farmer, Philip Jose and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at
