Read Call Me by Your Name Online Free - 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.

One last update to say I saw the movie! I have been verbally spanked on GR before for reviewing movies so I won't go on and on, but I will say that it's a truly beautiful film. It's perfectly done and captures the book in a way I didn't think possible. All the actors were wonderful, but Armie Ham...

I wanted to make fun of this maddening book, but really, I must just want to make fun of myself for loving it. 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. Los...

Fue un libro encantador. Y cada que lo proceso más, me gusta MÁS. Creo que la primer lectura del año estará en mis mejores lecturas del año.
Y TODAVÍA NO VEO LA PELÍCULA PORQUE LA QUIERO VER EN EL CINE.
HASTA CUÁNDO, MÉXICO, HASTA CUÁNDO.

“If I could have him like this in my dreams every night of my life, I'd stake my entire 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 al...
