The first three books in the Uplift Series happen to be the first three books I've read of Brin's.
It is also beautifully written with a complex plot and great characters, a very good balance of ideas and fictional detail.
To me, it feels that not enough happens in the book, a lot of words and dialogue, but not much actual plot.
One of my favorite sci-fi books, and one that I frequently re-read.Published 1 month ago by Oldesloe

I read this book originally in the 90's and wanted to finish the rest of the uplift series, so I reread it. Wonderful prose, fantastic times apes and humor. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Fastwalker
In my opinion weaker than startide rising and sundiver. It sort of feels more dumbed-down and rushed than the other books in the series. Still very readable.Published 5 months ago by Ville
David Brin takes a couple clever ideas and stretches them across hundreds of pages. This would probably be more enjoyable as a novella or short story.Published 5 months ago by John R Gilbert
