    One thought on “Owner's Share”

    1. This is the sixth and last of Nathan Lowell's Trader's Tale series. What began as a Bildungsroman about a young man who finds a life of adventure and unexpected friendships among the stars now wraps up with Captain Ishmael Horatio Wong as he wrestles with starting up his own small shipping linen after a lifetime of working for other people.The story is unexpectedly sad. Between Double Share and Captain's Share (books 4 and 5), the Trader's Tale series stopped being about a young man finding his [...]

    2. This is the sixth and final book in a series. I've stuck through it waiting for the series for quite some time through publisher issues, health issues and I was very happy that this book was finally released on my birthday. Hurray for me.One of the things I loved about the first 3 in the series is their lack of plot. They were just a fascinating tale of a young man’s day to day life on a large cargo vessel; the mundane aspects of his life were written in such a way that they were fascinating. [...]

    3. Lowell did a good job on the previous books. The background he created is rich, the characters pretty fun, even if Ishmael looks sometime like a piece of wood in a river with the social skills of a rock. But still, it was good readings.With this book and its dramatic end, it feels like an half-done job ! I can't figure why the story has to turn this way but it seems to me somehow ridiculousThe 5 books have a certain kind of slow pace (some says "boring") but this one is flirting on boredom, unti [...]

    4. Every once in a while you read a book, and it was so good that you end up reading it over again later. But when you re-read it 4 or more times a year just because it is so great, it has to mean something. This is the start of an Epic Arch of a land rat boy to the man whom becomes a true Spacer. This is the start of a saga living out in the deep dark.WARNING: This book and the entire series may cause cravings. Notably exceptional coffee, eggs over easy, fried potatoes with onions, buttered toast [...]

    5. Ticari bir işletme olarak uzay gemisi nasıl büyür sorusu yanında bir kaç yan hikaye de vardı. Seri için iyi bir bitiş sayılırdı aslında. Devamını okumaya niyetim yok. Uzayda geçen sakin bir macera arıyorsanız bu romana bir bakabilirsiniz.

    6. After initially giving this book a 5 star rating, I've since changed it to a single star. Am I nuts, yeah maybe, but after finishing this book I just feel slighted and empty. I realized after reading the whole series, it now seems quite pointless. Not sure I'll be reading any other of Nathan Lowells books going further. +++++++++++++++++++ spoiler alert = don't read any further ++++++ spoiler alert +++++Ok, with that out of the way, I can't believe the ending. Upon further reflexion, I realized [...]

    7. I enjoyed this series when it started. Space opera-ish story focusing on a kid that was just a kid who got dealt a rough hand. You watched as he sucked it up and dealt.If you look at the past few books, however, you'll see that my score for them has been going down.Why? Because the protagonist (Ishmael) has become more of a super everyone-loves-him (literally, as Ishmael is unbelievingly sexually interested and/or involved with many of the female characters through the series) and he-can-do-no-w [...]

    8. The fulfillment of the story in the past five books. In one sense, at the end of this book, we have Ishmael having grown up to the point of his life starting anew from a more adult and independent perspective.The book is roughly double the size of the earliest books and worth the size as the author is trying to finish off the series. Here Ishmael is involved more in the business politics of his time and manipulated by several players along the way. There is more personal action in this story as [...]

    9. A thoroughly enjoyable voyage. The final Ishmael Horatio Wang novel did not disappoint! Nathan Lowell has a tremendous ability to bring the day to day lives of solar clipper trader crew to life. His all so very human characters become oh so very real. I so look forward to his forthcoming tales from the "deep dark"!

    10. Was tipped off to Nathan Lowell's Quarter Share by the excellent podcast starshipsofa's excellent cheapskate review. Available as free audiobook download from also excellent podiobooks. Ended out reading the entire excellent series and (obviously) paying for it. A low key personal and at times somewhat wistfully melancholic adventure.

    11. This was bittersweet in a lot of ways, not just that this series is over but things that happened during this story. As a whole, this was a thoroughly enjoyable ride. I loved the idea behind it and the execution was well done. I will definitely be checking out more from this author!

    12. The last and luckily longest novel in the space opera series, hopefully Lowell will come back to the series sometime in the future because I'd really like to know what happens to Ismael after the novel concludes.

    13. Man oh man, the feels, This book was at times really brutal to my heart.The conclusion of the trader series is such a mix between feelgood, and mystery, You can kind of really feel how the author has distilled the formula through the books, and I'd say they just got better and better, culminating in this.I loved every minute I've respent with Ishmael through this series. Parts of th ending kind of let me miffed, will nothing work out for Ishmael? But then again big parts of what was more or less [...]

    14. This was just painful. If it wasn't the last book in the series I wouldn't continue. I couldn't stand to hear one more meal described. Wow, a lot like reading a menu, over and over and over again. And over and over. And then again. I think there was a story in there, in-between meals. (view spoiler)[ Ishmael has been fired from DST, his previous company. On the basis of his salvage share of the derelict ship he led the recovery boarding party on in the last book, he buys a packet ship. DST sells [...]

    15. As a long time reader of the series, I have been waiting for this one to come out despite the months-long delays from various (missed) publication dates. If you have enjoyed this series, I would strongly recommend you give this one a pass as it is a major disappointment – not the entire book, but the last 20% or so just went downhill on a fast train.Without having a spoiler, there appears to be a lot of filler material with even more page after page turns of what the next meal is, what the nex [...]

    16. Sorry to see it endI have truly enjoyed the whole series and it's like I have to say goodbye to some really good friends. The story has no attacking aliens and galactic wars, just a group of people trying to make a living and hopefully doing the right thing. It isn't always a perfect life, but who's is? Ishmael is smart and lucky which makes the sticky situations work in his favor. Nice to read not one, but six good stories.

    17. GreatI've read all the tales and thoroughly enjoyed them all,they an interesting insight into science fiction that doesn't involve aliens or combat scenes, it imagines a spacers job in a peaceful universe and the trials and tribulations one man experiences in his quest from necessity to understanding and achievement as he climbs the ladder ,the author peppers it with the interesting characters he encounters and his effect on many of them.

    18. Very sad book. I feel lost. The Captain may have started healing, but I was left without closer. I followed this man's career through 6 books and I don't know it ends. The last chapter is kind of a let down.

    19. Loved this series and especially this one as it took a turn for the more serious. Can't wait to see where we go from here.

    20. I love this series.One of the best series I have ever read. I'm generally not a huge sci-fi fan but couldn't put these books down.

    21. I really like these characters, but this wasn't my favorite book. Too much violence and intrigue, especially compared to the day-to-day niceties of the first books.

    22. The best book in the series so far but damn Ish cant get a break. Looking forward to continuing his story.

    23. First time I read this several years ago it broke my heart. On rereading, it still hurt. Ishmael has his own ship- and a shipload of problems.

    24. By George the attachment I've made to Ishmael and the other members here. Simply wow-ed by it. The heart twists for them. The trials we see in Ish's life, one amazing man created here. (I'm thrilled to know there are more 3 stories with Ish to come in 2014)***FULL REVIEW*** Ish's payment is coming in soon, or at least they have an idea what the amount will be and with that a whole new life of troubles. DST fires Ishmael. Yet, a big company like that has reasons for everything. When the owner die [...]

    25. Finally getting somewhere, sort-ofThis is the first book of the series than didn't read like a list of appetizing dishes interspersed with some space travel by an unnaturally friendly group of people. The other stories weren't terrible, they just weren't really stories--or if they were, they're closer to dinner table discussions of Uncle Joe's and Aunt Diane's first trip to New Zealand, or Grandpa reminiscing about his career in the Navy, than to stories written by an author who writes for a liv [...]
