Before Your Memory Fades – Toshikazu Kawaguchi ★★★★

Blurb; The latest novel in the international bestselling Before the Coffee Gets Cold Series, following four new customers in a little Tokyo café where customers can travel back in time.

In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café that has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time.

From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold and Tales from the Cafe comes another story of four new customers, each of whom is hoping to take advantage of Café Funiculi Funicula’s time-travelling offer. Among some familiar faces from Kawaguchi’s previous novels, readers will also be introduced to a daughter, a comedian, a sister, and a lover, each with something they wish they had said differently.

With his signature heartwarming characters and immersive storytelling, Kawaguchi once again invites the reader to ask themselves: what would you change if you could travel back in time?

My Review; I have loved the previous two books, so of course, I had to grab this. I devoured it. I loved it. We get four different stories in one book. All beautiful stories. Coming back to this cafe felt like coming home with all the familiar characters. It is best if they’re read in order but can easily work as standalone reads. Is you could travel back in time who would you visit? Highly recommend. A well-deserved four stars.
