But I am still here,' she reminded him gently. 'I'll always be by your side,' she said without hesitation. 'Even though I die, as long as you don't forget me, I'll always be in your heart.” love de nieuwe setting met de bergen en de natuur en de nieuwe mensen en toch een mooi geheel met het tokyo café, en weer even hartverwarmend en hartverscheurend tegelijkertijd als altijd Overall, while I did enjoy this book, I didn't find it as emotionally hard-hitting or satisfying as the previous installment, Before the Coffee Gets Cold: Tales from the Café, which remains my favorite among the three books in the series.

Last, quei nomi troppo simili o troppo strani: Sachi e Saki, Kazu, Nagare, Yukari, Reiji... mi perdevo i pezzi di trama, senza perdere il filo, tanto di fatto il libro è sintetizzabile così: chi torna dal futuro è morto e vuole incoraggiare chi resta, chi viaggia nel passato rivede un morto per risolvere qualche questione sospesa e magicamente ritrova lo slancio e il senso della vita. i’ve consistently enjoyed this series and the same could be said for this novel. however, i discovered there’s a distinct difference after experiencing your own grief. From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold and Tales from the Cafe comes another heartfelt story of lost souls hoping to take advantage of the cafe's time-travelling offer. Among some familiar faces, readers will also be introduced to:
These two quotes reaffirmed my thinking that our heart is the eyes of the soul, and if we truly want to know the person, we should never disregard this ability of another way to see. Featuring Kawaguchi's signature wistful storytelling, Before Your Memory Fades is full of heart and emotion. Inside every person is an inherent capability to make it through any kind of difficulty. Everyone has that energy. But sometimes when that energy flows via our anxiety valve, the flow can be restricted. The greater that anxiety, the greater the strength needed to open the valve and release the energy. That strength is empowered by hope. You could say that hope is the power to believe in the future.”

Meet more wonderful characters in the next captivating novel in the Before the Coffee Gets Cold series, Before We Say Goodbye, releasing November 14, 2023! un'antologia di storie gradevoli, ma tutto sommato non era necessario dopo aver letto i primi due libri della trilogia.i hadn’t felt this with books 1 and 2, but this final installment had me thinking “if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all” :( The first two books takes place in Café Funiculi Funicula in Tokyo, whereas in this book, the stories are in Café Donna Donna on the hillside of mount Hakodate. We meet some characters we already know, Nagare and Kazu, along with Kazu's seven year old daughter Sachi. Nagare's mother, Yukari, who owns the café is travelling, so the the café is run by Nagare and Kazu in her absence. The rules of the café are the same, 1) nothing can change the past or the present, 2) customers need to drink the coffee before it gets cold, and it's only possible to use the time-travelling chair when it's occupant - here an elderly ghost gentleman - leaves his seat. I dont really understand why the book repeats itself so much - it’s like bingeing a TV series that’s forcing you to watch the ‘last time on…’ every episode.

But that’s not all. Like the charming Tokyo cafe Funiculi Funicula, Cafe Donna Donna offers its customers the extraordinary experience of travelling through time. i liked the addition of Sachi and her questions book, especially the reveal at the end, but this alone was not enough to make up for how uninspired the other stories felt
