Fell in love again You see this book has no plot I hate books which contain no plot and things just happen without a specific order or reason But this book worked because it ntailed no plot This book conveys in us the raw and true and sinful motions and feelings of Elio a very special and intricate character which at the age of 17 falls in love with a 24 year old man What is beautiful than this His motions are so real that they take form we can smell them Love, Again: The Wisdom of Unexpected Romance eat them feel them ourselves This book was so mesmerizing the writing was so poetic and John Greeny at times but it suited it This kind of writing was needed otherwise the book wouldn t be as gripping as it was Thending absolutely and irrevocably annihilated my feelings This nding wasn t included in the movie it was something ntirely new to me and I don t know how it will work with an alleged seuel I m hearing is at works but i m xcited to know the outcome I truly hope we will all find love like this in our lives Their love moved me in many aspects and I wish love just like this xists in this world I want people and myself to feel this love to their bones and always feel young because of it Anyway till the next one K BYE If I could have him like this in my dreams very night of my life I d stake my ntire life on dreams and be done with the rest This book has been on my to read list for a few years but now that the film is set to be released I believed it was time to get going and pick it up once and for all From what I had seen of the film that is shirtless Armie Hammer and not much Entranced (The Donovan Legacy, else because I wanted to read the book beforeven watching the trailer and from what I had heard about the book I was up for a promising and xciting read Oh and a gay one tooTo be blunt I xpected More motion most of all Longing and sexual frustration dominated most of the novel but I was looking for dramatic heartbreak and high motions Maybe a tear or two Maybe I didn t connect nough with Elio the main character Sometimes I ven disliked him Then again I understood his aching and longing for a guy that seemed so very much out of reachWhat bothered me most was the highbrow narrative style the thousands upon thousands of cultural references to literature music and art I felt like someone had slapped me with a travelling guide and a Latin dictionary over and over again It seemed pretentious and took away my interest in the novelThe writing was beautiful at times and overwhelming at others Sentences were much too long and seemed never nding Pretentious againI can t decide if I want to give this two or three stars I might change the rating again later It s not that I disliked the novel on the contrary sometimes it was like a dream Italian food prepared by a personal cook strolling on the beach lazing around in the sun handsome and interesting people around night and day The openness with which Aciman wrote the gay sex scenes surprised me positively But specially towards the nd it almost bored me for reasons that I already mentioned aboveHowever I have high hopes for the film adaption It has the chance to develop the feelings and the relationship between Elio and Oliver much better and to actually make me feel somethingFind of my books on Instagram Sufjan Stevens playing softly in the distance I ve put off writing this review for far too long because I m afraid I won t do the book justice I want to write a review that makes veryone drop what they re doing and start reading Call Me by Your Name immediatelyReading the other reviews I find a lot of polarization about Aciman s writing style which I loved Some people find him pretentious while others *find his bordering on poetic I definitely fall in the *his prose bordering on poetic I fall in the categoryMost books are read for a good story and I understand that but other books like this one are read for the Buried enjoyment of language What I mean by that is that a great many of the sentences in this book can be read andnjoyed all on their own because they re so beautifully written Aciman has obviously labored over his phrasing to the point that I found myself often stopping to reread a sentence a few times and just luxuriate in
The Warm Bath Of WordsThewarm bath of wordsThe itself is great because it really has the ring of truth The characters in this book are far from perfect and sometimes infuriating I won t discuss plot other than to say that it is bittersweet and just real I think any gay man will see his young self in the protagonistSo in summary read this book He came He left Nothing lse had changed I had not changed The world hadn t changed Yet nothing would be the same All that remains is dreammaking and strange remembrance I should probably issue a warning that this is a book I usually wouldn t like I think A summer romance up to its neck in purple prose and wandering introspection sounds like a nightmare And yet there was something so beautiful awful intoxicating and sad about Call Me by Your Name Maybe I like it because and I hate to admit this there is a part of me that recognizes something of myself within itEither you have been this kind of person perhaps still are this kind of person or you have not are not and this book will seem overwritten and alien I unfortunately have xperienced that deep all ncompassing infatuation with another person I don t personally call it love not any Instead it s a feeling of overwhelming almost feverish obsession with their xistence their body their laugh and verything they do or say I m not proud of it and I don t think it s healthy But I do think this book captures it in all its intensity and sadness Call Me by Your Name for me stands apart from other romances because it doesn t follow the usual formula of two people meet cliche flirtations and angst nsue and then finally they nd up together It s not a spoiler to say this isn t that kind of story if you re reading it for the warm fuzzies then you re going to be disappointedIt is about seventeen year old Elio who falls into a deep romantic and sexual obsession with the twenty four year old Oliver when the latter becomes a summer guest at Elio s parents Italian villa If there was ver a perfect place to set a heady novel of this kind then it must be the cliffs of the Italian Riviera I can feel my cold heart melting just thinking about itWe stay inside Elio s mind as he fantasizes romantically and sexually about Oliver Aciman builds a novel based on innermost thoughts and the most painful of motions It is sometimes almost too much and I wanted to look away as Elio feels like he can t get close nough feels like he wants to crawl inside Oliver s skin It s an intoxicatingly romantic intimate physical miserable xperienceThere is one moment when Elio s wise father comforts him Right now there s sorrow I don t nvy the pain But I A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, envy you the pain Which I thought was deeply sad though also perfect It might not be my usual choice of book but I think Call Me by Your Name is one that will stay with me Sometimes it is thexceptions to my rules that I find myself remembering the mostBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube.

The bare bones of the story could have been assembled using some kind of Gay Coming of Age Novel Trope Generator Teenager Grad student Italian beach Fruit Poetry Jealousy Sex Loss More poetry But I agree with whoever likens Aciman s approach to Proust s which is probably verybody who has read both Aciman and Proust This is not a Gay Coming of Age Novel at all it s an legy for desire for memory itself and it manages to visit that interior terrain of longing most notably visited by A LA RECHERCHE DU TEMPS PERDU without begging a side by side comparison Which is a feat in itself What novelist could really survive a direct comparison to Proust Best to avoid it The frustrations of the novel only become apparent once the spell of Aciman s spare but lovely prose has been broken While reading it I never thought to sneer at the clich s or the problems of a seventeen year old child of wealthy intellectuals I was too by the salt breezes and the sunlit stones and the daily rituals of swimming breakfast dissertation work coffee dinner guests town bed and the millions of specific new shades of pain that result from ach and very moment spent around and away from the narrator s object of desire There are some story frustrations here to be sure but from this book I was only xpecting a bit of light scapism for my subway ride My Purely Sexual expectations were so successfully shattered

doubt and hope but mostly doubt that colors any interaction or lack of interaction with the object of one s desire These precise doubts are separated out and distilled purely and tightly and lucidly by Aciman He just does not let up This was the great surprise of CALL ME BY YOUR NAME for me As much as I thought I d want to throw this book down at times I almost missed my stop because it would not let me go How wonderful it is when you find a forever bookWe re all Elio aren t we Shattering This book is a fucking axe to the heart But because my heart perhaps yours too was broken long ago no further damage can be done So perhaps the book s like 45 Stars We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to
