"Riverworld is a fictional planet and the setting for a series of science fiction books written by Philip José Farmer (1918-2009). Riverworld is an artificial environment where all humans (and pre-humans) are reconstructed. The books explore interactions of individuals from many different cultures and time periods. Its underlying theme is quasi-religious: who did this? Why? How? The motivations of alien intelligences operating under ultra-ethical motives are explored." This from Wikipedia sums up the book very well. Imagine everyone who ever lived past childhood is reincarnated, restored to perfect health at the age of approx 25 yrs old and are living in the same time. Just imagine who you could meet from the past, good or bad, and ask them about their life!!
