How does this series get continued 5 star reviews?

The first two books felt as a good introduction to the world building and main characters. Not perfect but enjoyable. This third book was the final straw in my interest in finishing the series. The main issue is the lack of conflict/struggle or that the main character is perfect at everything he touches, without flaw. I don't know why it took 3 books to come to that realization but after watching him flawlessly master more and more jobs/tasks it becomes nauseating. Can he even be allowed to get a 98% on a test? Nope. The test will be wrong and the authorities will insure he gets the full 100% and the test answer will be updated accordingly. Come on!

It's seriously tiring having a character conquer effortlessly everything including a chuck of the women he encounters. Not even a hint of disinterest is offered by a single woman in his sights. The occasional reminder of his age being a mere 18 years old just makes me roll my eyes more. None of this characters expertise comes from years of experiences, he just solves every problem in short order even with the "experts" are left scratching their heads.....again. My one and only complaint about the narrator is his deep and gruff voice makes you forget this is some young kid who you are following and not some seasoned veteran with years behind him.

Just rename the series "A Trader's Tale from the Golden Child" and it would be a better descriptor for the story. I'm not risking another purchase of this series.

Feel good series

Adventure, not much danger but a story about a young man finding himself through work and building himself a life. Small if any drama. Some romance.
Not for people who want there daring do and fighting, or great drama. This story has a lot of feel good things happening.
I particularly enjoy the decision making and building himself up. I like how everyone seems to want to help everyone else out, with a few rare exceptions. I like how he tries hard and gets rewarded for it.
Others I know wouldn't enjoy this book because of the lack of down and dirty hard luck, bad times and heart wrenching realism making you reevaluate life. I like it because of that lack. Makes me feel happy. Easy listening.

Ishmael Wang heads to a new chapter in his life.

"Call me Ishmael" is kind of the running joke of this series, which centers on crewman Ishmael Wang of the interstellar trading ship Lois McKendrick. This book is a transition book, as Ish goes through a huge life altering change at the end of the book, moving on to the next phase of his adult life. As with the other books, this is a very charactercentric book, since there are no battles, no aliens, just the characters.doing their duties on a trading ship. There is an emergency onboard that could have caused disaster, but the excellent response by the crew saves the ship from disaster. The characters are what make this series, and they are excelletly drawn out, with snappy dialogue, real human emotion, and a story that draws you in. As always, Jeffrey Kafer's narration is top notch, really bringing the characters to life with his warmth and snark! Any fan of sci fi should enjoy these continuing stories of Ishmael Wang.

Classic Character driven Sci-Fi

More in the musing style of Heinlein than the action / event driven modern vogue, Nathan Lowell's Solar Clipper series starts slow and lets you get to know the characters and setting naturally. Wonderfully engaging, one of the few series I revisit every few years.

Creepy misogynistic comments ruin the story

I found Nathan Lowell's writing via a recent book The Wizard's Butler. I loved this book and recommended it. There were a few creepy-guy moments in the story, but I overlooked them. Last week I binged on the Smuggler's Tales series and really enjoyed them. Then I listened to Quarter-Share, very good sci-fi slice-of-life story telling, then I listened to Half-Share yesterday - which took a strange turn to sexualization of the female characters and an immature and painfully awkward writing of the main character. I read the reviews for this book, Full Share, to see if the author got something out of his system and got back on track with Full Share. Apparently not. I am only at the beginning of this book and he has already shared with his female boss the image of his co-worker in a dog collar and leash working on some slimy sludge cleaning with him and then we get to hear his thoughts as he watches his female boss walk away from him. Enough. I already bought the next book and will be returning that. Not sure if I will ever return to reading any of Nathan Lowell's books. I don't read science fiction for a perverted middle-aged man's thoughts to be shared. We have to put up with creeps in real life - I'm not spending my time and money to do so for entertainment.

Im not into that Romance, sappy stuff

I enjoyed the problem solving of the Ship going thru the EMP, and the process of creating a computer program to visually see the cascade.
I liked how they got the crew member to change his work behavior by having the ship talk with him.
I liked the update to the astro plotting from cut&past to auto fill..
I could do less with the romance

Good continuation of the series

My wife and I love the antics of the characters. It's fun to see them grow and evolve.
I really enjoyed the book and will certainly be getting the next.

The stories are fun and the characters lovable.

SPOILERS

That being said:
- I'm not sure the relationship stuff all seems believable
- I find it hard to believe that a single, 4-year, in-person academic institution is likely to be the norm in the future. Shorter, more focused, dispersed, and virtual seem far more likely
- I enjoyed the laptop episode, but it stretches credulity

Absorbing

Having now been completely hooked on this series, I’m finding it very difficult to put the book down, as evidenced by getting through 3 books in one week!

This series is a true listening experience and I thoroughly recommend it; it is well worth the one credit.

Excellent Listen

I was so excited to get back to Ish and the crew. What a fantastic series this has been.

However, this was a great listen. There's so much going on here, with a new crew member coming aboard and the uncertainty of Ish losing his place on the ship. This novel defo has a much sadder undertone, and Jeffery did a fab job as usual, with all the characters and especially the woman, it amazes me how much each person really has their own twist and voice. I am in awe of what narrators do. But the amazing writing, and drinking and food also still makes me want to drink more coffee and find out how to make spicy beefalow :)

I really did enjoy the full journey though, and the fact that Ish and Bev get together is just perfect, I wondered of the three who he actually might end up with if the opportunity arose. At most points through this book, I kept thinking, come on, I'm routing for him... the ship and almost dying, wow, really great writing and really awesome deductive work from Ish and the crew to get to the bottom of that problem. A mystery I Was happy to follow, as I was with the problems they were having with the new crew member CC.

I was looking forward to the next one, but now I'm not so sure. And I have to say, I think the only thing with it that's bothered me is the preview chapters and then subsequent wanting to skip the first few in the next new book. I also got a taster of the next book, (book 4) before I cut the off switch. And I'm sad if there isn't anything really written of his academy days, I mean to skip 4 years of his life... seems a huge switch. Maybe it will work or not, but sigh. I really wanted to see what happened there too.

I am very much still looking forward to hearing the next book and following on with Ish and maybe Pip and Bev.... guess we'll see when I get there.

Thanks for the great entertainment this week already pre ordered the next :)
