If you don't like poetry or shakespeare (he's not specifically quoted in this book) this book won't interest you because it quotes a lot of that kind of literature and the dialogue is REALLY poetic. Kind of hard to understand if you're not paying attention. But I always want to know what will happen to Tanpopo next and where Kuro will take her.
The format of the story is taking a narrative from another story (the first chapter is Faust; a story where a man sells his soul to the devil for SOME reason I can't remember) and will use quotes as dialogue between characters or just to narrate the story.
I've never read anything like Tanpopo before and I enjoy it.
