They even continued to revolve.

Likewise, if Farmer's book had been about his own made up cultures, there would be little to fault him. However, since he chose such a difficult path himself, I feel no compunction in stating that he was unequal to the challenge. Description: To Your Scattered Bodies Go is the Hugo Award-winning beginning to the story of Riverworld, Philip José Farmer's unequaled tale about life after death. When famous adventurer Sir Richard Francis Burton dies, the last thing he expects to do is awaken naked on a foreign planet along the shores of a seemingly endless river.

Philip José Farmer was born in North Terre Haute, Indiana on January 26, 1918. He worked in a steel mill while attending Bradley University at night and writing in his spare time. In 1952, his story The Lovers, in which a human has sex with an alien, was published in a pulp magazine called Startling Stories and won him the Hugo Award in 1953 for most promising new author. He won the Hugo award for best novella in 1968 for Riders of the Purple Wage and for best novel in 1972 for To Your Scattered Bodies Go. In 1988, he was the recipient of the Writers of the Past Award and the Nova for best book for Riverworld.

Philip Jose Farmer (Author). Book 1 of 2 in the Riverworld Series. The book tends to alternate between descriptions of the the artificial planet Riverworld and how it seems to work, descriptions of encountered characters and their place in our real-world history, action scenes, and plot advancements which involve the characters' investigation of the Riverworld, and why they, along with the 33 billion other humans who ever lived, suddenly woke up on the banks.

Comments to eBook To Your Scattered Bodies Go

Well I recall reading this 20 or 30 years ago I can't recall how I felt about it but now remembering this is like a real man fantasy sci-fi wet dream. Like all men and women wake up nude and without hair in the afterlife all restored to a youthful age of 25 year olds. So there is that, sometimes, the situations seemed a little forced and hooky but overall there is a quality to the story that is deeper and just a bit whimsy so I guess it still deserves the designation of a classic Sci-fi book. I was entertained.

After hearing that the Sci-Fi channel was doing a mini-series based on this book, and that it was a Hugo award winner, I decided see what the big deal was. I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining this novel is.

PJ Farmer wrote an interesting blend of historical/science fiction (or speculative fiction as he might call it). He took characters from many different sections of history and tosses them into interesting scenarios on the Riverworld. The book tends to alternate between descriptions of the the artificial planet Riverworld and how it seems to work, descriptions of encountered characters and their place in our real-world history, action scenes, and plot advancements which involve the characters' investigation of the Riverworld, and why they, along with the 33 billion other humans who ever lived, suddenly woke up on the banks of the snaking river.

I bought the first book online, and finished it in a night and a day. Promptly after, I order the other four in the series. They've all been fun, and educational. I think I've learned more about history in the past two weeks reading the Riverworld series than I did in the past three years since I graduated from college.

One of the most unique and original SF concepts ever. Tons of fun to read and exceptional in its inventiveness, and ability to make you ponder your own trials and tribulations along the "river of life".

I just finished reading all 5 volumes in this series and had to offer a review.
Book 1 starts off tremendous (!!) and offers up a good mystery - why are millions of people resurrected on an alien planet???
Book 2-4 spends grossly too much time delving into the history of the characters and not enough time getting to the Tower and the Ethicals. On a number of occasions, Mr. Farmer seems desperate to display the historical knowledge he has labored over.
Book 5 really grapples with the issues from book 1 and is the second best book of the series.
Book 3 was just awful in my opinion. Wayyyyyyyyy too much history of characters, it was like watching wood warp. I almost stopped reading the entire thing over book 3.
Overall, in my opinion, the series would have been much better working the mystery of the Ethicals and a whole lot less time with the history of various people. It was a great opportunity squandered.

This is a classic for a reason. Wonderful concept!

Sturdy Sy Fy classic

Very good shape
One of the best books ever by one of the best writers ever. All people from history wake up remade to age 25 along a great river. No one knows why. Richard Burton, explorer from 1800's tries to solve mystery. What a great story. Humorous and interesting.
