Book 2, Uplift
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written. Sundiver, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War--a New York Times bestseller--together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time. Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race. But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind?
The Terran exploration vessel Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history. Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret--the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.

This rating applies only to the editing quality of the iBook edition, which is very poor. Punctuation errors and misspellings abound throughout the book. Some chapters are worse than others - one of the later chapters is almost unreadable and gets a character's name wrong! I plan to contact the Apple store and seek a refund.
As mentioned already, the ebook is poorly edited. The story is good and moves along nicely. Some interesting concepts and approaches. But beware of the sequels.
A must-read for any science fiction novel-lover!
