    • Shit just got real!OK, so remember how Brin left off Brightness Reef on a cliffhanger? Jophur ship had just landed above the returned Rothen vessel, totally changing the balance of power on Jijo. Sara and the starfaring Stranger, whom we now know to be Emerson from the Streaker escaped the zealots and have fallen in with a group horse-riding human women and urs. Dwer and Rety are stuck on a mad robot. Oh, and Alvin and his comrades sunk to the bottom of the ocean, where they were rescued by mech [...]

    • Storyline: 4/5Characters: 3/5Writing Style: 2/5World: 4/5A creative confusion unburdened by the strictures of brevity. Infinity's Shore is unpolished and unrestrained in the same way as the Uplift series has been all along. Despite the unnecessary profusion of characters perspectives, the staccato snippets of parallel storylines, and the distraction of ever-burgeoning galactic side-machinations, Brin tells a great story. For suspense, excitement, and wondrous developments there is not another Up [...]

    • Run-of-the-mill genre SF, hastily written for a market. The plot creaks as it winds through its predictable twists and turns. The action, however, is made confusingly hard to follow due to the author’s trick of creating cheap tension by switching back and forth from one storyline to another at critical moments. The characters are stock and overdue for retirement from Sci-fi Central Casting. The heroes are neatly labeled and satisfyingly invulnerable, even when they suffer grievous wounds and t [...]

    • Call this one a 2.5 star book. I do want to know what happens. There are plenty of cliffhangers throughout and some big ones at the end. I like some of the characters, Dwer, Emerson, Rety, maybe Gillian. The aliens are cool and very different from any other aliens I've read about in 30 years of reading Science Fiction. So I give him a lot of points for originality and inventiveness. He seems to think up new and different alien species effortlessly. The science is good, which is a huge plus. But [...]

    • David Brin is fast becoming another of my favorite authors. Especially with this series. I do love the alien races he has created, and the way they are able to mesh together on the planet Jijo as they don't anywhere else in the universe. The idea of all sapient races having been 'uplifted' by a patron race except Humans. The whole premise of his universe and peoples are intricate and all consuming. I couldn't put either of the books in this series down until I finished them.

    • While I wish this book was a bit more tightly written with less POV characters it did seem to move the story forward and give me hope that the final book in the trilogy will tie together all the different dangling threads. This was a rather long audio clocking in at a bit over 26 hours so thankfully the narration by George Wilson was excellent.

    • Peace has endured on the world of Jijo, where six races shelter from the wider civilisation of the Five Galaxies, for decades. That peace has now been shattered by the arrival of a starship of the Jophur, a powerful Galactic race, searching for the fugitive Terran exploration vessel Streaker and the billion-year-old secrets it contains. As members of the six races struggle to survive under the brutal Jophur occupation, the crew of the beleaguered Streaker realise they must draw the Jophur away f [...]

    • Just as with the first book in the Uplift Storm trilogy, there's a lot of complexities with aliens and human mentalities and sociological subplots. Brin is the best world builder as he includes so many plots points and flavors I know its too much for some people. But I love it, for exactly the same reason I dislike Lord of The Ring too many details that make it more of a travelogue than a novel.BUT here the characters aren't just walking through a landscape and taking it in and maybe reacting to [...]

    • Only read about 50 pages. I've learned to be very wary of authors who start their book with a list of 75 characters. The map is less of cautionary item. The final straw is that there are 6 different species on this world. So all together you're left to deal with at least 100 words of random letters that you don't quite know for sure if it's a name of an individual, place or species. Then randomly assemble the creatures from various mammal, crustacean, bird and lizard parts. Maybe if I had starte [...]

    • Brin takes this trilogy to more and more exciting levels with volume #2. The Dolphins are amongst the most wonderful ideas every developed in scifi while the uplift galaxy is amongst the most intimidating prospects. What a combination!

    • Great book. Onto the last! David Brin does quite a fantastic job with this series.

    • The complicated, but inventive, mix of human and alien races continues. Next book should be interesting. Wonder how it will work out.

    • Currently, there are six books in Brin's Uplift saga. It's kind of hard to categorize these books as elements of a series, though. The first three books in the saga, "Sundiver," "Startide Rising," and "The Uplift War," are not really a trilogy or a series in the normal sense. Instead, "Sundiver" relates to the rest of the saga as Tolkien's "The Hobbit" relates to his "Lord of the Rings:" it sets the stage for all the rest of the books in the saga. "Startide Rising" and "The Uplift War" describe [...]

    • David Brin is known for inserting current scientific knowledge of cosmos, biology, and evolutionary science both biological and non-biological (albeit at the edges of known science and speculation beyond, but always on scientific principles). The Uplift Storm Trilogyl exemplifies Brin's mastery of science and story to bring forth an intellectual appreciation of future and past. Brin has been my favorite science fiction author since he came on the scene decades ago. Indeed, in my mind he has repl [...]

    • For those who haven't read the trilogy: trilogy in David Brin's case means it's one giant-ass book split in three, the volumes don't work on their own as separate units.This book was a LOT better than Brightness Reef, finally here was the action and plot the whole first book felt to be building up towards. I loved how the fates of the cast of Startide Rising and Brightness Reef were intertwined ((view spoiler)[and additionally, loved how many of the separate plot strands and POV characters from [...]

    • Yes, I read this in a day. Something like 850 pages today - 200 from the previous book, and this one in its entirety.The entire fucking thing is a page turner. You know, how the last third of a book usually this? The whole goddam book was 100% last third. Totally made up for the unwieldy feeling I got from Brightness Reef. Which I just finished this morning. Oi.It goes without saying that I can't wait to read the next one. But I should probably go to sleep or something Definitely not letting mys [...]

    • I enjoyed this more than brightness reef though there are a disconcerting number of narrative voices to follow and the ending has a whiff of the deus ex machina about it and is not really and ending, much like the first book. That said the action and narrative drive is far more invigorating and gripping this time. Looking forward to seeing how it all pans out.

      In this second novel of David Brin's Uplift Storm trilogy, the society of outlaw races on Jijo are thrown into further chaos with the arrival of the super-powerful Jophur, a hostile race of alien conquerors. We are reintroduced to the crew of Streaker, who plot their escape from under the nose of their fearsome adversaries.This novel suffers from the same problem as most middle works in a trilogy: having neither a true beginning nor a true ending, it exists as nothing but middle that goes on and [...]

    • If you liked Brightness Reef, you'll almost certainly like this, as it is basically part 2 of that book. I may have actually liked it more, as (view spoiler)[it brought back the crew of Streaker (hide spoiler)] (spoiler for Brightness Reef).The one major flaw is that it absolutely ends on a cliffhanger. Unlike Brightness Reef, which ended at what I felt was a natural stopping point, this seems to end in the middle of the climax. Usually I like to space out books by the same author and from the s [...]

    • The pacing was better…if you call putting the 100 pages of nothing's happening in the middle of the book better pacing.But he still has the problem of introducing characters and following them for far too long only to do absolutely nothing with them. (Dedinger, I'm looking at you.)And of the two villains (three, really, but one is just a puppet of the other), one doesn't do anything until they're almost destroyed (the rothen) and the other, while still one-dimensional, at least has an excuse f [...]

    • Another great installment in the Uplift saga. The planet Jijo, and the six Sooner races hiding out there, face trying to fight a Jophur ship that is intent on capturing the renegade ship Streaker. But the Dolphin crewed ship is hiding, facing problems of its own, and the Six races are unable to comply. Using what little technology they do have, they are surprised to find that they can hurt the enemy, but only for a short while. It is when the two groups come together that a plan is hatched to de [...]

    • What a change, while “Brightness Reef” was a bit of slog Infinity’s Shore’s pacing was good, and the story was engaging. There was action that moved the plot forward and the various characters now seem to have parts to play that serve the story directly rather than mostly background world building.This is more in keeping with the truly good "Uplift War". All the mysteries of Jijo have not yet come to light and the crew of the Streaker are still in danger but things are getting really int [...]

      The planet Jijo is host to 6 groups of illegal settlers, and now also to the ship Streaker, manned by Dolphins and fleeing from mighty alien ships desperate to seize their cargo of an ancient corpse.Brin paints a suitably alien picture of the species who have learned to live together despite their differences (one sort is like the Wheelies, another like a stack of doughnuts). Each chapter follows a character, but there are so many that it's tricky to follow all that's going on. He also tends to [...]

    • A solid middle book to the trilogy. In fact, the ending almost felt like it could be the conclusion. If I had one real complaint, it's that there are a lot of similarities to The Uplift War, in that it is hidden people engaging in mostly low-tech resistance to the Galactics who have taken over the world. Minus the gorillas, however. (This is not a bad thing, though, since The Uplift War is my favorite book in the entire series).If I have any complaint, though, it's that the aliens don't really f [...]

    • Nebula and Hugo award-winning author David Brin continues his bestselling Uplift series in this second novel of a bold new trilogy. Imaginative, inventive, and filled with Brin's trademark mix of adventure, passion, and wit, Infinity's Shore carries us further than ever before into the heart of the most beloved and extraordinary science fiction sagas ever written.For the fugitive settlers of Jijo, it is truly the beginning of the end. As starships fill the skies, the threat of genocide hangs ov [...]

    • Infinity's Shore is technically a middle book and doeswhat a middle book has to do, advancing the plot and settingthe stage for the final volume. Some things are resolvedbut most is still hint and promise. Don't look for neatlytied threads here and, even in the concluding volume, don'tlook for absolute conclusions; I don't think that's whereBrin's interests lie. Even so, taken just on its own,tjos book is a rich and varied skein of stories inthe service of a greater one, told from the viewpoints [...]

    • Typical of the middle volume of a trilogy, this book is a bit sluggish in places as the author takes his time exploring his incredibly detailed world. He brings in characters from previous books, hints at big doings behind mysterious events, and continues following some really interesting characters as they become more deeply involved in world-changing events. The strength of this book (and the whole series) is Brin's ability to create convincing (and fascinating) alien characters. This is not a [...]

    • Like the other novels, this book explores some interesting concepts in a pan galactic society, but brings the implications home in true space opera style. Here are the main two concepts in the series1)intelligence is too complex to be evolutionally emergent, so it took 4-5 billion years for it to happen the first time, and every time since has been the result of genetic manipulation by intelligent species that have come before. 2)Language shapes intelligence and thought, which shapes language. A [...]
