Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Just Awesome."

    Almost forgot I had this, and then got so excited to listen this week, I was truly sad that it ended.

    I still Iadmit I wasn't sure on this one, after the last book had such a sad undertone. And for it being so many years after the academy... but I was pleasantly surprised, this was in fact much better than I'd thought.

    I do think you do have to suspend your disbelief a little over the fact that there really was no way to get rid of the Captain of the Tinker in the 5 years he'd been running it into the ground. But, the journey that Ish goes through while asserting his place on the ship and within ranks of the crew is really good, really trying for him, but good for us. He's almost a little bit too good to be true, you know good looks, smart, and just knows everything about everything. I am really waiting for him to come up against something that he really doesn't know how to fix, not just to seemingly do everything right all the time.

    Still this novel had a lot of fun, a lot of sad situations though, the fact that the guys on the Tinker thought most of the women were there just to be used, did grate against my skin a lot. Glad it was soon starting to stop though because of Ish and his harem.

    Nice work to both Jeffery Kafer and Nathan Lowell and I think as I've said on the other series I'm waiting on hurry up and hit publish on the next :)

    "A really good listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Double Share the most enjoyable?

    The out come where the bullies get there comeuppance, plus I didn't expect the ending.


    What other book might you compare Double Share to, and why?

    I can't say that I have read/listened too another story line the same as this, it is a good heartening storey line, because there are no aliens trying to wipeout man kind.


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

    Jeffrey Käfer makes the storey come alive, he is one of the narrators that I look for when purchasing a book, because he never does a bad one.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sail to the ends of the universe.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, hurry up with the next book please.
