Daniel Salmons, yeah i heard they butchered it so i never watched it but i should give it a shot. i was disappointed in the 2nd (pr was it third?) book where most of it was all these details on how twain was building the riverboat, got soo boring with all the mechanics, but i bared with it. skipped a couple of them but then read the dark design, so trippy! i need to read the gods of riverworld tho.
lol on an unrelated note, i read this book series called "river world" where everyone who ever lived wakes up on a strange planet in a new body and herman goerring is there. he decides god has given him a new chance to redeems himself and starts the first new religion of riverworld. i thought it was interesting anyway.
