I personally enjoyed The Uplift War most out of the entire series.

The second trilogy should have been cut down to one or two books. There is a huge build up in the first book that ends in a cliffhanger and the second two simply do not do it justice. Interesting world... interesting details about the races... but ultimately a disappointing conclusion. However... if you are looking to a resolution of what is set up in Startide, you do indeed get it in spades.
