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.

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.

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.

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.

Masterful!

André Aciman has written a masterpiece in Call Me By Your Name. The ease of voice and the effortless flow of words through Elio’s point of view is exquisite. The exploration and journey of finding yourself and of sexual awakening, together with a sort of lust, makes this story even more relatable as we’ve all had unattainable crushes we wish would become something more. Now onto Armie Hammer’s magnificent performance. He nails the narration in CMBY and really encamptures the listener’s attention all throughout the story. Armie has a sort of non-chalantness to his voice that almost feels like he was born to read this story. All in all, with the masterful writing of Aciman and the beautiful narration by Hammer, this book deserves all of the praise and more.

Pretentious and over-indulgent

I am clearly in the minority here but I thought this was a rambling, purple-prose filled mess of a book with no point.

Call me by your name: first love in paradise

call me by your name is aheartbreaking, evoking, brilliant love story. It is anxiety-provoking. From the first pages whip Elio’s longing, one can guess where the story is going and most likely where it will and. Still, it is full of surprises and turns. You will be happy and heartbroken for Oliver’s and Elio’s experience at the same time. You will be jealous for what they had and perhaps, the story will evoke something you’ve experience too. A must read!

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!

Breathtaking and evocative.

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.

Not what I expected!

A disclaimer may be needed, I had no idea what the content would be and I wasn't expecting this! The narration was very very good. I could listen to his voice all day long.

Brilliant book and loved Hammer's voice but...

I kept getting confused by the fact that Armie Hammer was reading as if Elio. I think it would have just been so wonderful if Timothee Chalamet had read the part instead, as I was bowled over by the film. Sorry Armie!

This is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever had the pleasure to hear. Armie Hammer reads it more than perfectly.
I listen to this almost in a therapeutic manner when I am painting. It is truly beautiful.

A portal to another dimension

This book is astounding. It has opened my eyes to so much and simultaneously connected me back to my own experience. I had so many ‘aha!’ moments, laughter at Elio’s beautifully articulated inner monologue, which is so real, raw and painful yet invigorating through the intensity, articulated honesty and erupting covert desire. I, also, shed many tears at the torment and torrent of shame and heartbreak which ebbs throughout the book. Armies voice is a dream. Half way through I already planned to re-listen straightaway. This is my all time favourite book. Thank you Mr Aciman and thank you Mr Hammer for conveying this masterpiece with such grace and gravitas. I feel lucky to be alive during a time this literature exists.

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.

I felt I could really imagine what it’s like to be a wealthy academic in Italy in the 1980s. Stunning, emotional, sensual (the peach!), and Armie Hammer’s voice is perfect. Do yourself a favour!

Wonderful Experience

The author has done a brilliant job in narrating the story. very heart whelming and touching. It felt like I am living the life of Ellio not reading or hearing about his story. what a wonderful wonderful job. I am hungover with emotions even after finishing the book a while ago. The last sentence "when you shut the taxi door, look at me, hold my gaze and once more, call me by your name." gives me goosebumps. No more words other than a great and dear experience. Armie Hammer has done it again. without his voice and rendition skills, the book wouldn't be so enjoyable. Thanks Armie

An honest love letter in the form of a novel.

Formidably read, every angst filled chapter is true and honest and oh so relatable. Armie Hammer is reading from the point of view of the main character, and not the character he portrayed in the film adaptation. He does this gorgeously. Possibly one of the most important reads for any gay boy/teen/man and their families. Acimen is a genius.
