An interpretation of satirical elements might be valid. This depends upon the reader’s tastes. There has been a rash of such questions lately under Books, so it might be nice to be able to assemble them into a larger framework based on the audience’s style preferences. Overall themes are often anticipated earlier in sci-fi before they become full-blown movements in society. 20 views · Answer requested by. Noah Cardoza.

Reviewers have praised Brin for a series of startling books- but this third installment captured my imagination. Building upon the concept of a 'Galactic Club', that tests applicants for membership, then consigns other pre-sentients to their care, it writes rules of civilization more complex than other authors ever mention, and demonstrates how they would operate. That includes war.
To begin, the plot includes a brief clash in space, moving to the planet- where action alternates between seaport/capital and wilderness. He provides the reader with rotating views of Humans, uplifted chimpanzees (known as Chims), the enemy (the Gubru) and ambassadors of other species (Tymbrimi & Thennanin). At first, the titles and names must be digested, but then the story picks up. Their war is fast-paced, see-sawing between technology and primitive inventions. Occasionally, we look in on the odyssey of two shipwrecked aliens struggling back to the capital. Imagery of the wilderness makes one feel the damp and thick undergrowth, where unseen creatures watch.
Characterization: It is fascinating to learn of the warlike Gubru, their leadership rituals, treatment of clients, and how fate treats them. Surprisingly, they will observe rules of civilized combat. Yet, only late in the book is their complex game plan revealed.
Tymbrimi are known as pranksters, something the invaders forget. I warmly remember the delayed punchline of a joke threading through every chapter. It is ironic, droll, and includes several species. However, they are not the only ones: look for the pipeline stunt.
Fortunately, action involves a small cast, referring to others indirectly. Readers soon invest in favorite characters, looking forward to future appearances. Each changes in ways that surprise- and a few drop out of sight to reappear later.
Writing is imaginative: the psi-broadcasts, the educational prospects of a Galactic Library, and Tymbrimi mental creations (called 'glyphs'), illustrated how unprepared humans might be in a Galactic gathering.
The conclusion impacted me favorably; it built upon activities of the 'Streaker', Startide Rising (Uplift Trilogy Book 2), then showed machinations that greedy races would engage in to grasp the treasure she might carry.

When David Brin, physicist and tale-spinner extraordinary, tackles a huge, multifaceted subject, he has only one rival, Stephen Baxter. Don't expect a sequel to "Startide Rising". Those characters return in the next 3-volume series. This book can stand alone, and is one of Brin's best works, a novel of patriotism, heroism, spying, revolution, comedy, wit, and typical Earthling bumbling and muddling through, although some of the Earthlings in this book are Chims and Chimmies (male and female NeoChimps). It's the 3rd and final part of the first Uplift novels (older sentient beings of the universe who millions of years ago began to genetically and educationally modify the minds and skills of former animals--even of mobile plants). Earth is a latecomer to the society of uplift clients, and Earthlings are not always treated with respect by snobbier beings of venerable lineage--and their fear of the newcomers and what they discovered in "Startide Rising" sets off "The Uplift War". It's a rousing space opera, and also a great discussion of religion, appreciation of differences, the meaning of bravery, all with considerable humor. You will fall in love with the heroic Chim, Fiben, and his scholarly Chimmie friend, Gailet, along with the intriguing elfin alien, Athaclena, and her human friend Robert--and all the others. Even the "villains" are described with understanding. Brin's best books include a vast cast of protagonists espousing different and conflicting viewpoints, and always plausibly characterized, and by the end one important hostile diplomat has been converted to Earth's cause. The ending of this book is fireworks! It belies a few reviewers who claim that there's usually not much of a conclusion to David Brin's long novels. Read this, and you'll decide that's a vile canard.

Important note for buyers: I loved this book, but if you're interested in this book, do not buy the Kindle edition.

I bought most of the Uplift series in Kindle editions: Heaven's Reach, Brightness Reef, Infinity's Shore, Sundiver, Uplift War, and Startide Rising. I was extremely disappointed by the quality of these ebooks. Words were frequently mis-spelled or replaced with similar-looking but incorrect words; words and whole passages were arbitrarily italicized; many words were split with hyphens for no reason. It was confusing, distracting, and eventually irritating. I got the strong impression that all these books had been run rapidly through an OCR system and never checked for correctness or quality. For a publishing company of Ballantine's size and reputation this is ridiculous.

If Ballantine are going to sell ebooks, they should do it properly, and give them the same care and attention they would to physical books. There's no excuse for releasing shoddy digital products.

I read the kindle version of the book and had no problems with it. While this is the third of the original Uplift trilogy, I dont think the books need to be read in order, they do well at standing alone. The author does a good job of producing multiple plot lines and showing how different species (read different sections of humanity) work or dont work together. All in all a fast paced story, enjoyable to read and well worth the time involved. I stayed up til 2 AM to finish the book and it was worth it. (I was at the half way point when I did the final read).
