Re: What SF/F Book Are you Reading? .. Redux
David Brin is an interesting writer. I can't tell you how many times I've started Sundiver and stopped. I really want to read the series, but there's a certain point in the novel where you can just tell he stopped writing for a while and picked it back up. After a great opening, as soon as the main character meets up with the Eatee, it's boring as hell.
Out of all his Uplift novels, Sundiver is the one I didn't read..I listened to it on audio...found it quite interesting in the medium.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
