    " Pretty disappointing. Man - the first book was so good, but this just fell kind of flat. Weak character development! .....I'll probably still read book three, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Simpson | 1/23/2014

    " This is the first series that has hooked me to the point where I feel like I just have to keep reading in a long time. This one's plot has its ups and downs... there are definitely some lulls, but it builds up to a quick hitting, satisfying ending that leaves you wanting more... namely book number three, which I will pick up soon! "

    " The riverboat moves along the river and a shit storm ensues. Mankind might be given a second chance, but the worst of us remains. Impossible to put down, the next novel is just as exciting. "

    " criminy. i just deleted my long review accidentially. a 3/10 but only a 1/5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne-lee Elvidge | 1/6/2014

    " Loving this series... can't wait to get my hands on the next one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marshall | 1/6/2014

    " Not so great. I found Farmer's portrayal of Clemens unconvincing and unlikely as a leader anyone would follow. The novel leads me to be believe that the mystery of Riverworld is more exciting that what Farmer intended is actually going on. "

    " Great plot, lots of actions. it shows how much they have advanced since they were first thrown into Riverworld. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 12/19/2013

    " I have an original hardback that doesn't have an ISBN. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 12/11/2013

    " I read this immediately following the first one. I think I was burned out. I stopped reading the series, but may pick it up again soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CD | 11/15/2013

    " My favorite book of the series both in content, and effectiveness of Farmer's style. Fascinating mixes of characters pop up, the 'Truth' of the Riverworld emerges as to resurrection and the first real evidence of a machine behind the whole fantastical reality is presented. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 azdbackfan | 11/12/2013

    " The second book of Farmer's Riverworld series. If Burton was in it at all, I don't recall. This book focused on Samuel Clemens (yes, that Mark Twain) and his efforts to find metal to build...you guessed it...a riverboat, presumably a fabulous one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 9/11/2013

    " I would rate this somewhere between a 3 and a 4. Samuel Clemens is an interesting choice for a main character. But I didn't feel entirely convinced. The concept is fascinating, but it's implications give the story a very dark mood. Still, I am looking forward to reading part three in the series. "

    " Can't wait to read more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 6/20/2013

    " first book in this series was better. Found the second not as interesting as the series progressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Javier | 5/31/2012

    " Good action packed. Didn't like many of the characters but the story was very addictive. "

    " Why the change to Mark Twain? I liked the Burton story. "

    " See review of To Your Scattered Bodies Go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mieczyslaw | 1/5/2011

    " This follow-up to "To Your Scattered Bodies Go" maintains the excitement and takes us further into the dystopia that is Riverworld. We follow the attempts of Mark Twain to build a riverboat and make his way upriver to discover the secrets of this afterlife. "
