Hugo Award-winning author Philip José Farmer created one of SF's most mind-blowing, critically acclaimed, and popular series of all time with the installments of his Riverworld series. In The Gods of Riverworld, Sir Francis Burton and his band have challenged the mysterious leaders of Riverworld and now control the mechanism that once held them in its sway. But the tower stronghold awaits, and the realm still houses awesome forces that could bring about their ultimate destruction.

    " Ending was interesting- middle was long- start was a little contrived. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 2/2/2014

    " After the finale of the fourth book, this story seems like more of a fan service to flesh out the mystery. I don't think the series needed this story, but I appreciate having it around as a definite answer to the ultimate mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 1/21/2014

    " Considering how great the first two Riverworld novels were, this last book is a total disaster. I couldn't believe he ended it this way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Doug | 12/30/2013

    " Could not finish it... it was pretty awful. Got halfway through listening to it and finally had enough. I think what put me over the edge was PFJ's point-of-view character describing a case of child sexual abuse he was witnessing via memory playback from one of the Riverworld residents. It was nauseating. Farmer should have left the series alone at the end of Magic Labyrinth. "

    " See review of To Your Scattered Bodies Go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Palmer | 12/11/2013

    " I loved the other books in this series, and was expecting more answers in this one. I was very disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 10/28/2013

    " Finally finished this series. The premise is a bit depressing, but interesting. Next book I read will involve people actually doing things, not endless conjecture... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dru | 7/9/2013

    " I read this series years ago as part of the Sci Fi book club. All I recall about it was that it began as an interesting concept, but eventually devolved into something kind of silly and ridiculous by the end. Repeating this review for all 5 books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savita | 6/20/2012

    " This is the last book in the series of Riverworld. I always remember the events that took place in the book and what led up to it. Teaches you to expect the unexpected, especially in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maja | 1/26/2012

    " A fairly satisfying conclusion to the Riverworld Saga, but definitely leaves it open for more adventures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyn | 12/12/2011

    " Read this ages ago and realize that I want to go back and read the first four books in the series. One characteristic of a good, original story is that you mentally come back to it again and again and I have thought of this work many times over the years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 12/17/2010

    " Fascinating philosophy about resurrection and doing good. It just disagrees so much with mine! I wanted to see Samuel Clemens again, and some of the other characters that earlier books described. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 azdbackfan | 12/4/2010

    " Not bad but definitely one of those, "I've already written four books. I'm getting bored. Best to wrap this up." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 10/27/2010

    " Oh but wait, there's more... When I first read this series it concluded with the fourth book. I didnt know this was written later. It is very different since the last book concluded the main plot. This was gravy. I enjoyed the hell out of it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik Graff | 7/19/2010

    " The Riverworld series peters out in this one. Like so many multi-volume science fiction series, Riverworld is best left after the first volume or two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 6/28/2010

    " A very engaging ending to the Riverworld series. A very different feel from the books in the middle of the series - this took the concept of Riverworld and the Tower to an ultimate conclusion, with a surprising but pretty satisfying ending. "
