✨Skye✨ | 3163 comments 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' cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera. Unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, at first each feigns indifference. But during the restless summer weeks that follow, unrelenting buried currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire, intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them. What grows from the depths of their spirits 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 both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

The psychological maneuvers that accompany attraction have seldom been more shrewdly captured than in André Aciman's frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion. Call Me by Your Name is clear-eyed, bare-knuckled, and ultimately unforgettable.

I actually loved part 2 and part 3 best because they were so HONEST. Like I learned so much about myself by reading this book. Those are the best books. I think this is like so uncomfortable because it's like RAW human intimacy and we engage in that SO LITTLE.

After reading the last part, I definitely appreciated the earlier parts more. Seeing how they remember their time together makes it all the more magical for me :) Intimacy like what they share is so rare today.

Totally agree! That's why I love this book and feel it's so potent and necessary because this is how we used to FEEL. We don't feel anymore. I feel like the only person around me sometimes who let's things affect me unironically. And these characters are so deeply unironic while still protecting themselves the way we all do, which keeps them relatable.

That was definitely a huge strength of this book, how it conveys emotion, and not just in the romance, but about everything. The way people feel about friends, and the young girl who's ill, and just about life.

It's one of my favorite books of all time for that reason.

Finished. Thank God that's done. I just found this book so annoying, so gross, so frustrating, not me at all.

I totally agree with you. I usually bond with this overly flowery writing style so this one is so my sort of thing. It feels jarring to read such a beautiful description of some quite explicit things though, doesn't it!?


guiana! (gvianai) | 311 comments yes! have you maybe seen the film adaptation for this? (view spoiler)

He definitely feels older than his years! I've not seen the film yet but am planning to. Have you? I just remembered there's a sequel to this book, aswell. I think I'll try and read it next month if you want to BR it?


guiana! (gvianai) | 311 comments have only seen bits of the movie, but I will most definitely get on that as soon as I finish reading the book! and definitely, that would be great! I've heard some passing comments of the sequel, which have left me somewhat befuddled, from a friend who's just read it. totally down for BRing it next month!

guiana! (gvianai) | 311 comments April is actually wide open for me so anytime is perfect. :D I can request it for the 8th here since I'm going to be on PC for a good bit, unless there's a more ideal date for you?

I couldn't agree with you more on that! backtracking to what you said before, the story seems more coming-of-age than it is romance, and I'm not fairly fond of time jumps either,..."


I agree with everything you said there (view spoiler)
