Publisher's Summary

*Now a major motion picture from director Luca Guadagnino, starring Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet. Winner of the 2018 Academy Award for Adapted Screenplay*

Celebrate André Aciman's sensational novel with a dynamic audiobook, read by Armie Hammer

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year 

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year 

A Washington Post Best Fiction Book of the Year 

A New York magazine "Future Canon" Selection 

A Chicago Tribune Favorite Book of the Year 

One of The Seattle Times' Michael Upchurch's Favorite Books of the Year 

Call Me by Your Name first swept across the world in 2007. It is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. André Aciman's critically acclaimed debut novel is a frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion. 

More praise for Call Me By Your Name:

"Hammer’s soft, velvety voice lends itself perfectly to the story and its Italian setting. While you might think this one isn’t worth a listen if you’ve already seen the movie or read the book, many reviewers say it is still worth taking in even if you know the story - some even say it’s worth listening to more than once." (AskMen)

Critic Reviews

"...Hammer's voice is brimming with such melody that, if you listen to it long enough, you can probably get drunk off it." (Vulture.com)

"...Armie Hammer (who plays Oliver in the movie) steps effortlessly into Elio's interior world. The result is staggering." (BookRiot)

 "A must-listen for anyone familiar with the book or film." (Buzzfeed)

Editor's Pick

One of my all-time favorites
"If Armie Hammer’s narration isn’t enough, let the upcoming sequel do the convincing (ask my fellow editors—I haven’t been able to shut up about it). With a voice so soothing and melodic that I honestly couldn’t help but get lost in the vivid descriptions, Hammer’s narration complements Aciman’s story perfectly. It’s a story that deserves to be listened to, over and over again. Trust me."
Michael C., Audible Editor

Stunning and deep dive into infatuation

This story has Virginia Woolf's stream of consciousness and Walt Whitman's sensuality combined in what is probably the most beautiful book I've read this year.

Absolutely spectacular!

My goodness. A simple story beautifully told. I found myself often rewinding to the start of a chapter or passage to hear Armie Hammer read André Aciman’s glorious writing once again so I could savor the words and phrasing. I really didn’t want it to end.

Crying in public

That’s what the ending of this book had me doing. Crying in the middle of a restaurant, and immediately on the last words as read by Armie Hammer, rewinding to hear the last few minutes all over again. Then I wrote a love poem to my husband. Great book! Great performance.

sooooo boring

I only got it because of the great reviews, and I've had such a hard time staying with it. I had to rewind the first 30 minutes over 10x. it honestly even got me in a bad mood how slow this book is. the first 30 minutes are ridiculous like get to the point already!!! it almost put me to sleep several times. after about 3 hours I officially give up and only wish I can take my credit back! and it has nothing to do with the gay guys. I'm gay myself but jesus this book is horrible! the amount of good reviews is very surprising!!!

Profound sensuality~

An absolutely beautiful, daring and complex novel! Aciman's economy of style is at once direct and poetic. He handles a controversial subject with such sensitivity, frankness and unabashed romanticism that swoons at every turn. Armie Hammer's rich baritone, and elegant reading is superb. I will return to this again and again.

Seriously disappointed

I'm a gay man who saw, and enjoyed, the movie. When I saw there was a sequel: "Find Me", I decided to listen to the book, then moving on to "Find Me". But that's not going to happen!

The book is very well written with creative, enjoyable prose that creates great images but the story is a cloyingly romantic fantasy containing mostly two-dimensional characters who mindfuck themselves silly, OMG get over yourselves?

The story just doesn't hold up, it's so melodramatic, in a silent movie kind of way and gets worse the farther you get to the end.

It doesn't help that the characters are not very likable in the book, and I can't even imagine such over the top romance between two men, and one that lasts a lifetime. Men are not by nature romantic, certainly not to the degree these two were.

I was struck by the gratuitous hetero side story: our teenage romantic bedding local girls and the manfriend redeeming himself by promptly redeeming a marrying a siring a brood if kids, leaving all this behind, or not; I couldn't quite figure out was up when they met 20 years later; where they still in love, were they ever in love? Who knows.

I really wanted to like this book!

I heard such good things about the movie, that I wanted to read the book for myself. When I started listening, I found that the main protagonist, Elio was miserable and unlikable. Compound that with the book being a definite "slow burn", it made it hard to finish. Throughout the story Elio was consistently passive aggressive, selfish, manipulative, jealous, and creepy. He mopes around for the majority of the book and comes across as very pretentious. Which made his lengthy inner thoughts hard to tolerate. He was honestly the worst. The narration was very good, but unfortunately I did not enjoy the story at all

Equal parts beautiful and heartbreaking

This story is both beautiful and heartbreaking. “Call Me By Your Name” is one of the most incredible novels to have ever written. This love story about Elio and Oliver will touch your heart and then break it into a million pieces. This is one of those novels and stories that will stay with you for the rest of your life. “Call Me By Your Name” is not only a brilliant masterpiece of LGBT literature, but it is also one of the greatest romance and coming of age stories to ever be written.

Beautiful and bittersweet

A beautifully haunting and bittersweet love story that makes you ache and wish you could experience a love like it.

The narration by Armie is perfect. His smooth voice takes the story to a deeper level and makes you feel like it is playing out around you.

The movie should definitely be watched as well!

Great highs and boring lows.

The book has some incredible moments but it gets too caught up in side story particularly Elio's bisexuality and the polygamy of the relationship. it makes the story feel less intimate between them and although Elio's bisexuality isn't a problem in itself it really detracts from the story as his love for Marzia seems jarring and out of nowhere. Some of the background of the story (like italian art) is explored a little too deeply and it leaves you more confused than intrigued. The ending is very real and personally not what im sure anyone reading wanted but thats not the books job, it has a heartwrenching ending that denies the reader everything and nothing at once. Worth the listen but at times can be very infuriating to hear.

I was fully enchanted by this text - Armie Hammer was convincing in his portrayal of Elio.

Beautifully written - filled me with joy and heartbreak in equal measure.

Full of beautiful quotes but some boring passages

Maybe if I had read this when I was a bit older and knew the keen sting of love, unrequited, forgotten, or simply lost by time, I would have loved this more. Maybe if I’d been in love with the scenery of Italy and it’s language, I would have been swept in more. But I couldn’t, because of large amounts that felt like filler for those who love both of the above.
Sometimes I couldn’t tell when Elio or Oliver had spoken because there was no “said...” or difference in voice by Armie which I in no way hold against him. Maybe if I’d had it in its physical form, I would have been able to visualise who was speaking but I struggled. Overall, lovely words and passages of love and wisdom of the world and its creations but towards the end, I wasn’t really feeling it. I did however, enjoy the reunion.

Sexy, sensual and beautiful

This book is so intimate and evocative I took to only listening to it when I was alone. Armie Hammer reads it beautifully and the descriptions of young love, Italy and summer are simply stunning. This book will hopefully make you remember your first intense love and the breathtaking beauty of intellect and acceptance.
A wonderful book for the open-minded.

It gets better

The start of this book is interminable, repetitive and juvenile but not in the evocative way I hoped. The only thing that pulled me through was Armie Hammer’s voice! I’m glad I stuck with it because about half way though it becomes quite beautiful. It’s also very pretentious, but this doesn’t make it inaccessible, just occasionally very cringey. Glad I listened rather than read it or I probably wouldn’t have pushed through.

An intimate and beautiful experience

Having read the book, watched the film and listened to the story multiple times - this is a book I'll be coming back to for years to come. Armie Hammer's narration is absolute perfection, wrapping you tightly in the most beautifully written and intimate love story I've ever experienced.

Always beautiful

Whether I read this book, or listen to it being read, it doesn't diminish the beauty that this novel is. Armie Hammer's voice is so soothing, and really suits. Definitely worth purchasing with a credit, and is certainly the type of book to fall asleep to, and come back to time and time again.
