An Instant Classic and One of the Great Love Stories of Our Time

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.

Call Me by Your Name (André Aciman) Book Reviews

Simply amazingI have nothing else to say but that this was simply beautiful..Score: 5/5

I love it so muchIt’s so much better than the movie even though the movie is fantastic (except for the nasty parts) the end made me cry more than the movie did which i never though a book could make me sadder than a movie 10/10 definitely recommend.Score: 5/5

StunningI’m 18 years old, and I discovered about the book after watching the movie(which was good btw). Besides, anything people can say this books isn’t about two gay men. For me is about finding love in places you would never expect. And, that you cannot play with the heart, cause time pass by and the feeling, the love is still there ready to find just a lil moment to come out again..Score: 5/5

My favorite book, my favorite movie, my favorite love storyThis book feels so real. It’s exactly what falling in love is like. I fell in love with Oliver as Elio did, and I will never forget it. Perfect. A masterpiece. If you don’t read it, you are making a terrible decision..Score: 5/5

EpicThere are some landmark moments in ones life. This brought back many memories of myself as a young 17 year old grappling for clarity and insight into his own sexuality. The mere mention of the title brings so many emotions back and tears to my eyes. I read this book in two days because I could not put it down. This book is worth a thousand reads..Score: 5/5

Great love story butThe characters and the actual story are great. I think what I found a bit difficult was the fact that the book was separated into only 4 parts. It made it hard to comprehend at times what was really going on. However, the last part was the most interesting and most easy..Score: 3/5

Absolutely incredibleRather than fall in love with the couple, this absolute masterpiece of a novel made me fall in love with the raw, gut-wrenching aspects of love itself. One of the most well-written, descriptive books I’ve ever read. I can’t imagine any reason not to love it..Score: 5/5

EmotionalI’m a very emotional person but I like to keep those things to myself, but this book made me want to scream to the top of my lungs how I felt, at many points I felt my heart swell, it almost felt broken. The words in this book really made me feel what the characters felt, and the way Elio, Oliver and even the father are written just makes them not feel like fictional character. Definitely not a disappointing book, a must read if I say so myself..Score: 5/5

May we all be so lucky💕💕💕Not everyone in this world will get to experience a love like Elio and Oliver shared. A love so naturally occurring yet beautifully awaited. I cannot put into words what this book meant to me as a young 18 year old girl about to embark on the next journey of life. Call Me By Your Name is a breath taking piece, full of so much crippling strength that you find it hard to breathe. I can only hope I encounter heartbreak such as this because heartbreak like this can only be born out of an ethereal love. PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! IT WILL STAY WITH YOU FOREVER❤️❤️❤️.Score: 5/5

The movie is way betterThere are 4 chapters and the last chapter seems pointless and confusing. What is the author truing to say about these two men?.Score: 2/5

Your heart will stop, tear in two, and skip a beat all in one partDifficult to get through for a slow reader like me, but so worth reading. At times it can be hard to folllow and you may have to go back and re-read some parts to wrap your head around it but this novel is poetic, sentual, and most of all, memorable. "Call me by your name" truly shows how true love never dies and how it shows no bounds, especially when it comes to gender. It shows that true love between father and son also has no way of stopping, even if the choices your chid makes may not be what’s expected. It is complicated, heartbreaking and raw but sexual, life altering, and beautiful..Score: 5/5

A touch to my heartThis novel is beautiful. It is a timeless tale of the pains of passions. A reader feels what the main character "Elio" feels.

BreathtakingA heard someone say before there is a before and an after this book. Now that I’ve finished it, I can’t agree more. The movie had already left a heartache that took weeks to heal, but the book is as wonderful as painful to read. Elio and Oliver are now for me part of the classic lovers, equals to Romeo and Juliet and Tristan and Isolde..Score: 5/5

Most beautiful books everThis book took me through an emotional roller coaster. Words can’t describe how invested I am in this book. It’s as if I’m with Elio through all of this, I am happy when he is happy, and I am sad when he is sad. One of my favourite books so far and a massive page turner. I would recommend this book to anyone, it is truly a masterpiece..Score: 5/5
