Arina Li's nuanced performance highlights the longing and confusion of four hopeful time travelers in this quirky and touching story. Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo's main streets, urban legend claims, is a café that can transport people in time. Li's lively voice and high tones conjure a mystical atmosphere within the nondescript café. The desperation and frustration of the time travelers can be both humorous and heartbreaking as they must follow myriad rules (including drinking the coffee before it gets cold) and face some difficult revelations. Li's narration beautifully conveys the cultural aspects of the café visitors' interactions and the book's insightful message. M.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
