Startide Rising by David Brin(24 ratings)
|Submitted by Maj |
This is the second in David Brin's 1st uplift trilogy. You don't need to have read the first in the series (sundiver) to enjoy this novel, as it takes place 500 years after Sundiver, and is a totally separate novel.

This book is simply amazing. Set in the distant future, the universe consists of various races who, through genetic engineering, bring about new sentient species in a strict and rigorous way called Uplifting. Humans are the only ones who have become sentient on their own since the first race, and for that they are hated. This book deals with a small dolphin (Humanity's newest uplifted species) ship that makes a strange discovery. It is well written, well presented, and a good story in general. There is a perfect mix of background information, action, character development, and speculation. A must read for any science fiction fan.
