Item Details

David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written.nbsp;nbsp; Sundiver, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War --a New York Times bestseller--together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time.nbsp;nbsp;Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race.nbsp;nbsp;But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind? The Terran exploration vessel Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history.nbsp;nbsp;Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret--the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.

Opinion

From Library Staff

In Brin's future, earthlings now consist of humans and "uplifted" chimpanzees and dolphins, who have now have the same or greater intelligence than humans. Will they work together to fight the great galactic corporations?

This is a book I've loved every time I've read it. It's fun to read a story of underdogs that use their skill and imagination to do what other's thought impossible. This book is full of adventure, cool characters in aliens and Earthlings, political manipulations, and daring maneuvers that always impress. I recommend this one to all science fiction lovers and all readers.
