David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling, highly regarded works of contemporary science fiction. Beginning with Sundiver, Brin provides an intriguing exploration of humanity's future in the universe.

For nearly a billion years, every known sentient species in the universe has been the result of genetic and cultural guidance - or uplifting - by a previously uplifted patron race. Then humans are discovered. Having already uplifted chimps and dolphins, humanity clearly qualifies as an intelligent species, but did they actually evolve their own intelligence, or did some mysterious patron race begin the process, then suddenly abandon Earth? The answer to this mystery might be as close as our own sun, but it will take a daring dive into its fiery interior to know for sure.

Sundiver begins David Brin's thoughtful, exhilarating exploration of a future filled with an imaginative array of strange alien races, dazzling scientific achievements, and age-old enigmas. Download and start listening now!

    " Could not finish this book. Too boring. "

    " I love Brin's notion that all sentient races have to be "uplifted" by other sentient races, and that no one knows who uplifted humans, or even if they were uplifted at all or if they managed just through evolution and natural selection alone. Brin's not the world's best writer, but his ideas are entertaining and well worth reading. I wish this book had been more about answers and thought-provoking discussion and less a sort of glorified murder-mystery, but I enjoyed it anyway. "

    " I am very interested by the premise of a universe filled with many many intelligent species, because other species have gone around uplifting them from less intelligent species. Unfortunately, this book doesn't fulfill that promise, it only gives hints. At the same time, I expect his later books will more fully explore the concept. "
