David Brin's New York Times best-selling novels thrill listeners with their stirring adventures 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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allyn | 2/18/2014

    " David Brin does intelligent and engaging science fiction "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 2/17/2014

    " The best of the first trilogy, although I either missed something that contributed to the events in the ending, or I'm supposed to chalk it up to the universe's biggest coincidence yet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joe | 2/14/2014

    " This entire series is horrible. I read it years ago hoping it would get better. I like the alien designs but that is about it. Horrible plot in this one. If you doubt me, I just have to say three words: chimpanzee lap dance. I did NOT need to picture that, David Brin. Bleh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janin | 2/3/2014

    " I enjoyed the Uplift Saga, but not enough to read a second time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/29/2014

    " This book was still good, but is getting a little more hardcore s/f and less into the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L. Cooper | 1/24/2014

    " One of my favorite hard Sci-Fi novels of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/23/2014

    " Last of the uplifts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice Green | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this as a teenager. Who wouldn't love sentient spacefaring dolphins, chimps, and whales plus an evil bird race with a triumvarate of genders? I wonder if I'd still like it? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Hays | 1/20/2014

    " great book looking for the other two so i can finish this sega "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 1/15/2014

    " Pretty disappointing ending to the trilogy. I sort of expected this book to resolve some of the questions in the first two books, but that didn't really happen. Maybe I need to read the next trilogy for those answers? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Baribeau | 1/2/2014

    " At first I was like 3 stars, and then I was like four stars! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Ashlock | 12/28/2013

    " best book of the original uplift series. very long, but worth the build. perfect blend of sci-fi, intricate plot, dialoge, and setting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ha·t'ej | 12/26/2013

    " One of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels. Seriously. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 12/7/2013

    " This book is made most enjoyable by imagining that the Gubru resemble Sam the Eagle from the Muppet Show. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Oaster | 8/20/2013

    " I honestly have lost count of how many times I've read this book - 5, 6, who cares. Probably not as good as Startide Rising, but the humor is better and there are more memorable characters - particularly Fiben Bolger and Ambassador Kault. A true classic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 6/5/2013

    " I enjoyed Uplift War far more this second time around, perhaps because I knew it, like Startide, was a small slice and not the entire story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stutley Constable | 6/1/2013

    " Out of all of the Uplift books this one is the best. Lots of interesting characters and some great ideas. Well worth the time to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Tresansky | 5/2/2013

    " I really wanted to like this book, especially after re-reading Startide Rising, but it simply doesn't hold a candle to its predecessor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/12/2013

    " A sprawling epic (in the best sense) of earthling colonists (human and uplifted chimp) resisting an alien invasion with the assistance of friendly galactics. Still as enjoyable as when I first read it 20 years ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Filkins | 5/13/2012

    " I actually did not know until now that this saga continues beyond the three books I have read. Yea! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 8/30/2011

    " More eighties-style sci-fi goodness. Tasty! And a surprisingly long read. Took me about a week to get through it, that's unusual but I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey | 12/21/2010

    " In my opinion the best of Brin's uplift books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adornable | 1/26/2010

    " Terrific novel that stands alone; no need to have read any of the previous novels to understand the concepts put forth here. It does make me want to go back and read all the others, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Van Dijk | 4/19/2009

    " I was happy to read that the Earth 'Clan' is pretty good at outsmarting aliens. Always does wonders for the ego. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 1/26/2009

    " The book was entertaining but almost the least so (for me) in the Uplift series. I think it's because I found Brin's realization of uplifted chimps to be less interesting than uplifted dolphins. I recall only one scene (the scene in the "bar") that captured the flavor of Startide Rising. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 12/3/2008

    " My favorite Uplift book! Read this if you want to learn more about why our conquest of Iraq was doomed to fail. "
