A novel by David Brin
(1985, Bantam Spectra)

Earthclan, book 2

After making a potentially huge discovery, a mostly dolphin-crewed spaceship hides from a galaxy of aliens inside a planet's ocean, where they deal with stress-induced mutiny. more than just the human race.


-- First reading (multibook hardcover)
October 14th to 24th, 1996


Really good, especially from a new (to me) author.  I loved the interactions; it was a really character-oriented story.  New concept, "uplifting" dolphins and chimps, among other aliens, and it seemed believable.  There were some unexplained points, but I think they will wait for the second book.
