An Instant Classic and One of the Great Love Stories of Our Time
Andre Aciman's Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, the two verge toward the one thing both fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time.

We've all had a love like the one described in this novel. You're usually just starting to drive, or thinking about college. It's the first time eye contact with a person can make you feel cold and hot at the same time. But you will only have a year, a season, or a week together. Andre Aciman captures the essence of this feeling to us in this book.
Set in 1988 and on the Italian Riviera, which adds to the charm and appeal of the novel, Call Me By Your Name is narrated by and tells the story of a seventeen-year-old American-Italian-Jewish youth, Elio Perlman, and his six-week, summer love affair with Oliver Ulliva, a university professor who is seven years older than Elio.
This is the first time I read something from this author and after reading a few pages, I thought I wouldn't like it but I keep reading it for some reason. And I'm glad I did because the book turned out to be good. The story is so heartbreaking, even when I quite know what will happen in the end. But everything is beautifully written so well done.
it's so heartbreaking for me, my poor little heart can't handle this.
I'll never be able to move on, ever.
The first romance book I've truly enjoyed. This was extraordinary.
this novel is so beautifully written. I am one of those people who likes to read book in one sitting, but I can't do that with this book. I really want to absorb this one part at a time. This book made me happy and sad at the same time. So beautiful and so passionate.
