Description

Call Me By Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blooms between seventeen-year-old Elio and his father's house guest Oliver during a restless summer on the Italian Riviera. Unrelenting currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire threaten to overwhelm the lovers who at first feign indifference to the charge between them. What grows from the depths of their souls is a romance of scarcely six weeks' duration, and an experience that marks them for a lifetime. For what the two discover on the Riviera and during a sultry evening in Rome is the one thing they both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

    Watched the film - was good but as always now prefer the book - all that is missing is Olivers side of the story - given that he says so little it would be great to now read that
  • More than just a love story, but a guide to dealing with mortality.

    The philosophical charge of this book incites the true fear and desire which charges our spirits. To find love-no, absolute connection-in mortality with a being found in this short time we are given. This is not just a love story, it is everything that being alive is about. Ultimately, a coming of age tale that is utterly heart wrenching- it is about the inevitable nature of change and how it cultivates our irretrievable past, and thus, bringing us all to the penultimate question...and leaving us wondering with electric doubt, Did I live the life I wanted? Also, on a lighter not, I cried like a baby.

    This is the most relaxing book I’ve ever read. It seems like your on holiday. The descriptions of the setting, the beautiful sceneries, my imagination if full of life, it’s breathtaking.

    Laughing. Crying. Thinking. This is not a gay book. It is a beautiful love story that is fatally humane and needs to be heard by all. All that needs to be said.

    Such an open window into the main characters mind and soul. A solid romance through and through. A better ending than the movie.
