An entertaining prequel to 'Startide Rising' and the 'Uplift War'. If you've read those books, two of the greatest sci-fi novels in the last 3 decades, this will be an enjoyable piece of background. And if you haven't read those two novels, this is the perfect place to start the exploration of David Brin's amazing universe. As the title indicates, this novel focuses on mankind's first ship to sail inside the sun itself but that is just the beginning.

Slightly slow starting, intriguing beginning to a great series!

First book of the first Uplift trilogy. For those who are as easily confused as I am, there are two trilogies in the Uplift saga, so this is book one of six, and Brightness Reef is book four of six.

The first (stand-alone) book in his UPLIFT world. A fun mystery, but not earth-shattering or life-changing!

The first of Davin Brin's Uplift novels. It's science fiction set in a future universe where various peoples rely on those more advanced than themselves to "uplift" them to an advanced level of technology.
