Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The little snippets from the Tao Te Ching are entertaining. Ship's bored-teenager reaction to everything is amusing. The literary and linguistic allusions are interesting.

Con: It gets dull after awhile, and it is very long. In the end, neither Ship nor Felicity actually captures Mariah, so they're not good protagonists; they're just along for the ride.
