ALG’s Book Club ‘Meets For Coffee (Before It Gets Cold)’: A Discussion On Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s ‘Before The Coffee Gets Cold’.

ALG’s Book Club members, old and new, got together last month to explore another intriguing piece of literature. Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s ‘Before the Coffee Gets Cold’ centers around a mystic café in a small back alleyway of Tokyo rumored to allow its customers to travel through time. As comes with all journeys through time, the novel’s plot is set up through various rules, intriguing and perplexing, that allow the customers to travel through time before their coffee turns cold.

The members discussed the universal appeal of time travel plots, and its magical treatment in Kawaguchi’s novel. The simplistic structure of the novel gave the members an opportunity to explore the deeper context of why each character indulged in time travel after being made aware of its rules. And finally, each member took their turn to consider whether they would exercise their option to travel through time.

As always, it was a wonderful time spent over a great cup of coffee, which did get cold!
