I soooo enjoyed Before the Coffee Gets Cold so i was really looking forward to some more tales.
And i wasn’t disappointed.
One thing that really stood out in this book was that all the niggly little questions that the first book raised got answered along the way: i won’t say what as it may spoil things. So it was rather good that as i started the book and i had questions in my mind that as i went along all the questions got dealt with. I imagine that Toshikazu had quite a few people asking these questions after reading the first book and it’s good to see that they all got answered.
Other than that, it’s pretty much more of the same as the first book whereby we have four people wanting to travel in time to make something right with someone. We also get to know the cafe staff and regulars a lot more along the way.
So yeah, great sequel and i really hope that Toshikazu thinks up a few more in the future and keeps the cafe going: it really is a good stage within which to fit stories into.
I continue to add my gripe from the first book, in that, there’s a cat on the cover but no cat in the book whatsoever. Toshikazu, if you ever read this, please put a cat in the next book.
