Startide Rising (Bantam Spectra Book)by David Brin
Put a dolphin on the cover of a sci-fi book and I'm all but hooked! Here, the Earth ship Streaker carrying a crew made up mostly of dolphins has had to crash land on an aquatic planet to make repairs. Can the crew fix the ship, stave off mutiny and aliens (some of the weirdest and most entertaining around), and escape with their lives? Thrilling adventure with a very broad scope and an amazing array of characters make this a winning story.
