      1. Sharimila K

        If you could go back, who would you want to meet?Before the Coffee gets Cold series has been one of my favourite. It is a fiction with a non-fiction touch. I completely enjoyed each book of the series and was looking forward for the fourth part after its announcement. And as soon the fourth part was available on Amazon I pre-ordered the book and was waiting for the D- day.The sad part here is after I got my book, I was not able to read it due to my exams and work. This Diwali I had my whole day devoted for the book and I enjoyed each bit of the festival reading this book.The book definitely changes the perception on life. Each book has four stories which shares the delicate concepts of love, relationship and the importance of time.After visiting the Donna Donna cafe at the Northern Japan, we are back to Funicula Funicula at Tokyo. The rules of the cafe are explained here and there again with more information about who the ghost in the cafe is and her relationship with Kazu. I was completely engrossed and excited.The book shares the importance of relationship, time, human emotions and most importantly being at the present. The importance of living regret free life is potrayed. I understand it’s not always possible to be with no regrets but we can always try and make sure that we live a life with no regret.The book is a source of self introspection. It strikes us with a harsh truth that no matter how hard we try we can’t change our past actions. Thus its a takeaway to live our life with utmost care by not hurting people around us, not to take relationship for granted and not to treat people for granted. Understand people as you are ie. Have more of empathy rather than being sympathetic.PS – This series is now my go to recommendations for anyone who ask me to suggest a book. Hence definitely grab your book today and read it.

        If you’ve been a fan of this series, emotional, simple stories about relationships are definitely your cup of coffee. So you should definitely buy it! I cried while reading the second and the last story and it was all very cathartic to me. And I’m so glad that I read it in one sitting, on a Sunday afternoon. It has all my heart.

        Character building and heart touching narration, Toshikazu-san at its best again

        What would you do if you had a chance to go back in time? Would you accept that you have actually done such monumental mistakes that you would have to alter the planetary rotation, tear the fabric of time and reverse the boundaries of physics? Or would you do this for the heck of an adventure?Fourth time lucky, the reader and the author both. Toshikazu in his fourth instalment of ‘Before the coffee gets cold’ brings yet another heart-warming coffee tales at Funiculi Funicula.The regular patrons at the magical Cafe Funiculi Funicula are well acquainted with its famous legend and extraordinary, secret menu that offers the wonders of time travel. Many travellers have reunited with old love, made amends with estranged family, and visited the ones they missed. But the journey, as we must know, is not without risks and there are rules to follow.There are new exciting characters and a parade of twists and turns that clash with the very concept of time.It’s heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Do pick it up if you like your coffee hot and frothy.And even if you are a tea person like me, have a sip at this occasional treat.

        Library BindingThe “Before the Coffee Gets Cold” series is by far one of my favourites. This novel’s release date is November 14, but to my surprise, I saw limited paperback editions available. This was weird to me because usually hardcovers are released before paperback- but of course I had to get one.The novel was delivered in 2 days, and upon inspecting, I realized this is not a traditional paperback; I’m not sure if this would be considered “library binding” but the novel was just sewn into the book jacket. Not upset because I did get the novel early which is all I really wanted, but I do warn to people who enjoy paperback- this does not feel the same. The binding is a lot more tight so it can be harder to keep the book open compared to the other novels.As for the stories, I cannot say much or else I’d be spoiling… but I am only on chapter 3 and already sobbing. Kawaguchi really knows how to tug at ALL the heart strings.
