Call Me by Your Name is a contender for one of my favorite books of all time. It's really hard to make me cry from a story. I can name all six movies and three books that have made me literally bawl. This was one of them. The last sentence of the book is the best last sentence I've ever read.

The prose is luscious. The setting is unique, a teen growing up in near-past Italy, and fascinating in its depth and nuance. The characters are very real, their struggles very relatable. And the outcome, so tragically believable.

Incredibly beautiful, moving, gorgeous piece of literature.
