    " The final book in this 6 book story is epic. Like most long space epics, the plot and ramifications grow and grow. The expectation for the eventual resolution grows in parallel. Usually this all deflates with a whimper instead of a good resolution. Heaven's reach does a great job of bringing the main plot to a truly epic conclusion with implications not just for one galaxy but for lots of them. Great book. "

    " So I've finished the second Uplift trilogy and I'm still a bit underwhelmed. First, what was good: Mr. Brin delves into some interesting concepts regarding the nature of sapience and ecological stewardship. He also investigates questions of tradition versus innovation in a long-term galactic civilization. Mr. Brin tries to portray a billion-year-old galactic civilization with an all-encompassing Galactic Library that believes that there is nothing new under the many suns. To his credit, he does a decent job but many of the stodgy alien races end up coming off like the elderly curmudgeon down the block. His setting also supposes that only the mythic Progenitors evolved into starfaring sapience by themselves and that every single starfaring race since then has been "uplifted" to sentience by a benevolent patron race. So when the feral "wolfling" Terrans arrive on the galactic scene, claiming to have had no assistance from a galactic patron race, hilarity ensues. Mr. Brin ends up taking the innovative, boot-strapping Terrans versus the hide-bound Galactic Civilization thing a bit too far. The Earthlings end up a little too clever and the aliens a little too easy to surprise. Then again, that seems to have been much of the author's point. The storytelling and characters were decent, but no standouts come to mind. The writing style is quite competent but lacks the flair of other SF authors such as Charles Stross or Iain Banks. "

    " Nice wrap-up to the series, but I think it was a bit silly towards the end. It was like a Russian doll set in reverse, every small problem kept being swallowed by an even bigger problem, followed by an even BIGGER problem. After a whole book of that, it was a bit implausible and exhausting. "
