David Brin's New York Times best-selling novels thrill readers with their stirring adventure and intriguing speculation about humanity's future. Set in a universe where no species has reached sentience without the "uplifting" help of a patron race, the books delve into the greatest mystery of all: Who uplifted humankind? Earth has been allowed to colonize the planet Garth only because its previous occupants went berserk and wiped out virtually all life there. But now humans, chimps, and their alien allies on Garth are being held hostage in a conflict that could affect the fate of the entire Five Galaxies. As a ragtag group of freedom fighters wage a desperate guerilla war, their only hope for victory lies in unravelling the elusive truth behind the legend of a hidden native species that could prove a powerful ally. The Uplift War provides entertainment in the grandest tradition of science fiction, with exotic aliens, visionary action, and universe-encompassing mysteries. George Wilson's brilliant narration conveys the awe-inspiring wonder of this amazing book.

Professional reviews

"For millennia throughout the five galaxies, more advanced races have "uplifted" promising candidate races into sentience through genetic engineering. Humans, however, uplifted themselves before encountering the aliens, and then began uplifting chimpanzees and dolphins all by themselves. This annoyed some of the lordly ancient races, particularly a birdlike species that began to play nasty tricks on a human outpost called Garth. George Wilson's comfortable reading style does not neglect emotion as these epic scenes shift back and forth among characters. The story moves nicely along, and Wilson neither overdoes alien intonations, nor pretends that they're not there. The listener's entire attention is warmly captured. D.R.W.
