I picked this book up in anticipation of the Riverworld series/movie that's set to air on SyFy sometime this year. The premise of the book is interesting - all of mankind that has died at any point on earth wakes to find themselves reincarnated in a practically endless river valley. The individuals immediately set to the task of recreating society in small pockets along the banks of the river. The initial parts read like an installment of Survivor: The Garden of Earthly Delights. However, after the first fifty pages or so, the book just begins to meander along, and I found it very difficult to care about the characters Farmer chooses to follow (given all of human history, I would have made very different choices). I'm not sure whether I'll go to the effort to read the other novels in the series.
