    One thought on “Full Share”

    1. It's hard to put a finger on why these novels are enjoyable. They're honestly not gripping, with zero in the way of conflict and only slightly more in the way of "plot." Full Share and the others are about character first, setting second, and everything else is barely in the race. It's like you're in some sort of reality TV show viewed through the lens of the main character. Good thing it's a pleasant show.

    2. A much better addition to Lowell's series thanHalf Share , and a promise of great things to come. Despite being the same length as the previous book and having more happening as well this book felt more rounded, more secure and just better. WhereHalf Sharefelt rushed this book felt perfectly paced. Furthermore the writing was as good and as captivating as I have come to expect from Lowell, really making the world he described come to life. Which is another thing that this book did really well; i [...]

    3. Another solid entry. The ease of these books is probably what keeps me coming back: they are like sitting down with a hot cocoa on a cold day. I love the world and focus on relationships and Ishmael's never ending thirst for knowledge.

    4. Space Jesus fixes everyone's problems through being perfect at everything. He sleeps with beautiful women, becomes amazing at everything he touches, and everything he does is correct. Things finally happen in this book and you wish they didn't. I'm out.

    5. This would be 5 if the main character wasn’t such a Larry Stu. Love this setting, characters, just all of it. But by the 6th or seventh girl my eyes start rolling.

    6. A nice rebound from Lowell's sophomore slump. The second book, HALF SHARE, wasn't a bad book, just not up to the first one, QUARTER SHARE. The thrust of this series is the every day crew aboard a trader space ship, their problem solving, the way they interact, the sort of thing we all encounter every day. No shoot em ups, bug-eyed aliens, space dog fights(too much Star Wars influence here).It might sound boring, but it's not. Lowell's style of writing keeps things moving along and the conflicts [...]

    7. And here Ishmael has become so noteworthy to his superior officers that everyone is recommending him for a grant at the officer's academy - but he's a bit dubious because he'd have to leave the Lois and all the adoring women (quite a few of whom give written commendations and endorsements for the grant) he has met so far: the girls he had one night stands with on various planets who had been not sure about their looks before he had convinced them how sexy they are.The woman who looked like a mus [...]

    8. It was a good book, but of the three I've heard so far, I felt this was the weakest - because the plot's trajectory was so obvious and methodical and plotted that it nearly became tedious. There was no tension where there should have been, no wondering what would happen, what would become of anyone, really, because everything was so broadly telegraphed.That said, the characters are still (generally) strong, their interactions interesting, and since that was the backbone of the first two books ( [...]

    9. Ishmael Wang gets another promotion in this book, as you might have guessed from the title, and starts to think about life after his tour of duty on the Lois McKendrick.If you've listened to the first two boks in the series, you more or less know what to expect here, although things to get taken to the "next level" to an extent; the ship is put in some very real danger this time around, some of the interpersonal issues raised in the earlier books come to a head, and we're left with a strong feel [...]

    10. I seem to have gone through this one almost too fast, on the good side I have the rest of them, on the not so good one, there are only three of them left I said about the other ones in the series, it really is comfort reading for me, I just love the characters, and the companionship, and what this book did quite a lot more than the others for me was getting those feelings across, I just feel really happy reading the books, and I don't want them to end, I just want to spend some more time with th [...]

    11. Much like the earlier two books in the series, I also found this book to be interesting and quick to read. However, most of the ending of the book felt like the author was wrapping up the series to be a trilogy and then appended an extra chapter or two to continue to carry the series forward. While I have enjoyed the series so far, not all that sure that I like the way he moved things forward at the end which means that I'm not sure I want to continue to read the next book.

    12. "Is there kissing in this book?"Yes.Space chicks fall all over themselves to get to some Ish fairy dust. However, it's the yarn about applying to The Academy where Mary Sue really grates.I keep coming back to this series, though. Lowell is an outstanding reader.

    13. These books are all good, but in this one, their lives are actually threatened (a rare event in the Share universe), which was exciting. The characters are as endearing as ever.

    14. I decided to push through the third book in the series because from what I understood it would rap up the story of the main character's time on the ship and I wanted to see a story through to it's conclusion. The story of his time on that ship is done and there are more books in the series available, but I will not be reading them.*Spoilers Ahead*I have been trying to put my finger on what I don't really like about this story and it didn't really hit me until this book. It's the protagonist. He [...]

    15. If you haven't read the first two books in the series, you can read this one and it will be okay but I strongly recommend you read them so you can understand the dialogue of the characters and the dynamics of this excellent series. Start off with Quarter Share (Trader's Tales from the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper), then continue with Half Share (Trader's Tales from the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper), then you will be ready for this one.Without having a spoiler, let me tell you what I really [...]

    16. Although I am a huge fan of Nathan's Tanyth Fairport Series, I am even more ridiculously a fan of the Solar Clipper series. I was introduced to them via John Ward, the great collector of interesting people, who suggested the Quarter Share podcast to me. A couple years later, and not only have I thoroughly enjoyed devouring the entire series on a regular basis, but I've also roped my family into the fandom as well. I'm pretty sure my mother has listened to the first six books at least a score of [...]

    17. This is the 3rd book in a 6 book series. Ish is half-way through his enlistment, he's looking to his future and thinking a bit ahead. I have to wonder what kind of recommendation someone who has spent an hour in your company can possibly write about you. And why they would. Every women Ish meets loves him, wants to have sex with him and feels betters after he compliments them. Where his experience in this area comes from is never disclosed. Although he's 18 all the women he interacts with on a s [...]

    18. I did find that this book was an improvement over half share, so the writer seemed to be getting in a better groove. I think I find these books enjoyable because of the air of cooperation amongst the star clipper, where even some of the less like-able folks can somehow find their place on the solar clipper.

    19. A little more actual conflict in this pleasant story of a Gary Stu. Still unbelievably, comically cringeworthy when describing the sexual mores of Ishmael and his spacer harem. Still extremely pleasant to read so here's a four star to balance out my two star for the second book.

    20. İkinci kitaptan daha iyiydi. Hikaye fazla sıkıntı yaşatmadan devam etti. Sonu da aslında üçleme olsa bitebileceği noktada tamamlandı. Bu kitapları hala neyin çekici kıldığını anlayamadım ama okutuyor.

    21. If you liked the second one, you'll like this one -- it's more of the same. Quiet nerd wows the grownups and the girls. I was willing to buy the convo with Cassandra moreso than dropping a semester's room and board on another outfitOn the plus side, Pip gets a decent storyline this time.

    22. This is the trouble with long seriesif you've read it all and you decide to update after the facte reviews aren't really about the individual books. Instead, I review the whole series.which was great :)

    23. Shipping off to the next port, and Ish reflects on what he's done and how he's acted. He still is told to look ahead and see where he wants to go. Lois McKendrick takes on a few new faces that scares Ish and the crew that's become family, but Lois decides she's not done with Ish just yet. The ship has a malfunction that Ish proves he is up to the challenge to figure out. Then many suggest to Ish to consider the Academy. Ish has to make a dicision of what he wants, even after he earns his four fu [...]

    24. This series is fun to read. It is different than most Sci Fi stories, no space battles, no wars and nothing remotely like Star Trek or Star Wars. Yes, Ish is a Mary Sue /wiki/Mary_Sue, but the stories move forward with great interaction between all members of the crew.If you like Sci Fi, you owe it to yourself to read a different type of Sci Fi.

    25. I'm surprised I've gone so far along in this series so quickly. I seem to have more opportunities to listen to someone telling me a story than I do solid blocks of time when I can read uninterrupted. It's also less work on my part just sitting/standing there and sinking into the story without moving my eyes back and forth.Once again, another book that reinforces my "theory" about third books in series (I should replace "books" with "podiobooks" in this case, but, well, whatever). After having re [...]

    26. An enjoyable story continues. There's even a bit of action in this oneThere's a bit less *trading* in this installment, what with a nearly-fatal ship crisis followed by the tech puzzle of determining how it occurred, and with Ishmael's uncertainty for much of the first half re. whether corporate orders are going to see him "bumped" from the crew of the Lois McKendrick if her canny officers can't work out a way to keep him. Then there's a lax new crew member to somehow bring up to their standards [...]

    27. It may have taken three books to get there, but this is the story I was expecting from the start of this series. Full of action, romance, uncertain futures, and career advancement, Nathan Lowell’s Full Share takes full advantage of the setup provided in the previous two books of the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper series. Almost acting as a capstone to a trilogy, this novel wraps up Ishmael Wong’s time on the Louis McKendrick as it sets him up to reach even higher in his career. Each piece o [...]
