I bought this trilogy after reading (and liking) The Uplift Trilogy. Mistake. The first book is very boring and slow. Description and history of Jijo and the six races without any narrative thread. Actually, all that "happens" in that book could be written in one chapter. It is an interesting and imaginative work but very often you will feel like stop reading. The second book is better, not up to the level of the previous trilogy, but very similar and easy to read. The third is just AWFUL. Not only is slow and boring is also PREPOSTEROUS, taking about physics, metaphysics, maths, science using meaningful but grandiloquent words that put together in the same sentence became utter NONSENSE. In this case, if you are a science fiction reader or have some knowledge of maths and physics you will not only feel like stop reading, but also to burn it. I barely manage to finish it.

David Brin's story presented in the Exiles has perhaps grown too big in his own mind, and he seems to struggle with grasping the story in its entirety and presenting it in entertaining, concise way.

He is prone to huge generalisations, and his ideas, although interesting, lack depth, contrast and detail. Overall the book (and the others from Uplift series preceding it) seem too childish and naive for the audience they are targeting.
