"Full Share" is the third in a series of space operas, having begun life as a reading in a podcast.This was the first novel of the series I read. I felt right at home from the get-go--the story feels like a complete story and not a mere sequel. Understandably, given its podcast origins, the novel has the chapter-by-chapter episodic feel of, say, a Dickens novel. The story, though, owes more to golden age sci-fi, Horatio Alger, naval historical novels and a kind of "can-do" vision of a practical utopia in which people use science to build interesting lives rather than decimating wars. The story of Ish Wang, a young crewman on a starship merchant vessel, making his way to better things, has a lot of everyman charm, though this particular everyman proves capable of quietly performing acts of genius, compassion and charisma. This is a vision of reality not far removed from the Roddenberry vision, but the focus here is on humans in a far-flung reality not radically culturally different from our own. I found the book a quick, easy read, with engaging characters, a light-handed touch, and the down-to-earth feel of a light squad room police procedural rather than the heavy profundities of a clash of civilizations magnum opus. Sometimes "escapist" is used in sci-fi to denigrate a work--but this is engaging, relaxing escapism, which I highly recommend.

I like that Ish rethinks the last weekend at port. He realizes he was a bit out of hand with all that happened. This is a young man, having fun but growing up too. He sees it and that's what matters. He learns from it. As of the first chapter, I was sure we had our Ish back. This starts this book off on great terms for me. I was a little...unimpressed? with Ish by the end of Half Share. This book, he COMPLETELY redeems himself for me. Ish is a great person in that he shows that those surrounding him are amazing and he can easily highlight all. Surrounded with brilliance here and Ish spotlights each in their area of expertise. That makes a crew and an amazing ship. Ish doesn't take the spotlight, he share and gives credit where credit is due. Just when you think life is grand and Ish and reader get comfortable, life twists. Things get complicated and Ish might not have a job on the Lois McKendrick much longer. This is one thing Ish feared in the first book, but thought he was safe until now. This was a hard thing to Ish as he'd found a home here and one thing he never really had - friends. Even in the end of this book, some separations are hard to get through. And I felt the twinge of not wanting this separation to happen yet wanting it and the future that comes. Ish always thought he would go to University because that was where his mother worked. But Spacers have a specialized Academy as well. And now the idea is on Ish's plate, but is it what he wants? The more Ish learns, the more he thinks going to the Academy could open many doors for him. And the nudging he gets, he will seriously consider it. Several think the Merchant Academy is the place for him. We get a closer look at all the characters here and find I've become closer to them all as Ish has. There are so many great influences on the Lois. All helped guide Ish to where Ish wanted to be. The ship, Lois, even seems to feel like her own spirit to me in this book as well. We get a bit more with Pip and do I really enjoy the free feeling of him and Ish talking and joking. I enjoy their trading and co-op works. We even learn a great deal more of Pip's family. Nice to see this here. And some of what Ish learns sends him reeling from what Spacer life is really like. He's one of a small few that aren't born to Spacer life styles. In listening to this book, I realized Nathan creates strong smart women. He has several in high and powerful positions - Captains and several high ranked officers. Some might ask about Sarah, but really, she is one of the strongest for the choices she's made. These woman all have troubles and obstacles to face and overcome, but they do and they are not shorted by it at all. Ish has a new position for a time, and with it we learn more of the outer deep space. I love how the common life actions are because of it's environment - why we do what we do - and is explained through the characters. Listening to this book, I want so much for Ish.

Better than the second book but not quite as good as the first. Still a fascinating look at trade between planetary systems and the people who make it possible in a unique science-fiction setting, and more interesting than the dating lives we saw in the last book. I very much recommend this entire series, or at least as much as I've read so far, and I'm looking forward to the next one!

Mr. Lowell is very good at telling a compelling story built on the small moments in life.  He has created a full wonderfully detailed universe and I grew attached to the characters that populate it.  I'm working my way through the entire series, I'm now on book 4, and I haven't been disappointed yet.

Our humble protagonist, Ish, is back again and still collecting ratings. He finally gets on the bridge, gets a direction in life, and even gets a girl. One of the best first person written series I've read. The Solar Clippers almost read like a diary or travelogues and yet they're irresistible once you pick them up. No, the fate of the universe is never at stake, but one man making his own way through the world is compelling enough.

This is just a great read and well done storyline. None of the usual space opera battle scenes, which in fact I didn't miss, and is quite refreshing. I eagerly await the remaining books, but I only read on my nook if I can help it, old eyes ;)

I love the entire series! I generally do not read sci-fi at all but was drawn in with full share and had to get the entire series! I love the pace of each book and well thought out story! As a result of this series, i have devoured everything from Mr. Lowell I could find! Wonderful!

An excellent series. I'd suggest it to any readers of Space Opera type SF. heck, even to those that don't, as it is just an excellent story. Pity they are being so tardy at bringing out the rest of the series.
Dream_Walker More than 1 year ago
This is a fantastic, easy read that defy's the typical space opera storyline. No big battles or hero or any other expected tale in this sort of story, but that said, I honestly loved reading the first 3 of this series and eagerly await the rest to be put into ebook format. If you like good writing and story telling, you will find what your looking for aboard the Lois McKendrick.

I have been reading "sci fi" for a very long time. There are very few series that are so engrossing that you do not want to put them down. This is one such. I anxiously await the rest of the series. There are some minor editing glitches but they are easily forgiven. Recommended.
