The Uplift War

The Uplift War (The Uplift Saga, Book 3)

The Uplift War by David Brin is a great piece of classic science fiction. I just finished listening to this fantastic book and would recommend it to everyone. 4.5 stars.

The Uplift War is the third book in Brin’s awarding series, but unlike some series you can definately read them out of order. Some books are ment to be read and others are ment to be listened. I strongly recommend that you listen to this one. Brin uses a lot of “alien” words in this books. They are words that when reading I never try to pronouce, but when heard they really bring a great character to the story.

I had a hard time “putting this down”. It always seemed that just as I was arriving at my destination there was some climatic event just getting ready to occur. I can’t tell how many times I would have to sit in the car for 5 minutes to hear what came next.

One of the central themes revolves around that concept of Biological Uplift which the Wikipedia link explains it very well.

I know this not much of a detailed review, if you want those you can stop over at Amazon, but in any case, I will be adding this book to must read list.
