Description

An inexperienced officer. A dysfunctional ship. Life in the Deep Dark just got a whole lot harder.

In his first assignment as an officer, Ishmael Horatio Wang finds himself fresh out of school, wet behind the ears, and way out of his depth. Aboard the William Tinker the senior officers are derelict and abusive, the crew demoralized and undisciplined, and change unwelcomed and dangerous. Can Ishmael use what he learned aboard the Lois McKendrick to help the crew find the ship's heart? Or will he discover that bucking the system may come at too high a price? Return to the Deep Dark with Ish in this fourth installment of the award-winning Solar Clipper series, as he makes the transition from crew to officer.

Very Creditworthy

I'm so glad the story here got back to the quality of the first books. I was terribly disappointed by the last book as it meandered through a non-story and left me wondering why even bother with this wimpy wrap up of The Lois and onto new ventures.

This book had a nice meaty story that was a good "read". Thumbs up.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Double Share picks up the story of Ishmael Wang as he leaves four years of officer training. With the ink scarcely dry on his certificate, he is signed on as third mate of the William Tinker. The Lois McKendrick was a nurturing home for those who sailed on her, but the Billy Tinker is an example of how a negligent captain and a bullying first mate can make a dangerous environment for the crew on board. I would recommend this book to anyone who is planning to take a position of responsibility anywhere.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Double Share?

Like many of the books by Nathan Lowell, the plot builds from the beginning. To mention the most memorable moment would involve spoilers. What I will say is that the most poignant moment is the one in which Ishmael and his friends aboard the Tinker realize there are some things beyond their control, but the climactic event pulls them together to correct the dangerous situation on board.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the third performance by Jeffrey Kafer to which I have listened. He just keeps getting better -- and he was good in the beginning.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, and some that made me feel angry and then relieved when they were resolved. You'll have to read to find out -- it truly would ruin the book to relate them here.

Any additional comments?

Check out that ending. Lowell is truly building toward something here, as we learn more about Ishmael's character.

Tedious story, imo hardly sci-fi

This series could just as well have been set in 18th century England or anywhere. There is virtually no science fiction in these books.
Every now and then there are somewhat intriguing personal conflicts & developments but absolutely 0% suspense, 0% tech and 0% space opera.
My wife would like this, she's into greys anatomy and Colleen McCullough.
The narrator is great though

Great Story, Great Overall, Performance Lacking

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I must say I perfer reading this story or listening to the Nathan Lowell read this story than Jeffery Kafer. I would suggest my friend to get the book, but that is because of my bias of here Nathan Lowell and his story telling quality voice.

What did you like best about this story?

The way this is a tale that I feel I could act live, nothing super hero, nothing unrealistic. The story makes me feel I could have lived this life and is written in a way I do not want to stop reading it.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listen to the other books in the Trader Tales series. I am starting to get bothered by lack of attention to the author pronunciation of names. I am spoiled because the Author Nathan Lowell has read these stories and know what how he wanted them pronounced. I really find the story compelling and I have listen to the Author read this book many many time. I want to enjoy Jeffrey Kafer but am slow getting jaded and he pronunciation of names is starting to grate on me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes except I have had to take breaks.
