Originally 17 galaxies were linked by tubes of focus time. As the universe expanded these tubes snapped, isolating galaxies onto themselves.

This was the first book that I read in the series, and I loved it. When I went and read the others, well, they didn't really do it for me. Funny how that works. I like this book because it has a lot about communicating with and relating to other alien species.

The Uplift War and Startide Rising take place simultaneously but at different locations in the galaxy and so should be read back-to-back or even at the same time alternating the internal chronology from one book to the next (I've done both). This pair of novels ranks as some of the greatest modern science fiction ever written. The characters are placed in impossible situations, massive space battles, a melange of cultures and alien races, centered around a mystery wrapped in an enigma and accompanied by some of the corniest yet most hilarious puns and double entendres to be found. Would you like to engage in a gorilla war in the jungle anyone?

Book three in Brin's Uplift series. Alien races are at war, and (of course) Earth and five galaxies are at stake. It gives an inventive twist to a tired idea.
