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.

"...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)

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.

Beautiful story

I’m not sure how I feel about this book. On one hand, I was totally mesmerized and deeply engrossed in it. On the other hand, I was a little bored, frustrated and confused. I guess that just makes it more like a real obsessive relationship. Elio is not in love with Oliver, he is obsessed and obsessive. Most of the story is Elio’s stream of consciousness, there is surprisingly little dialogue between the characters. Elio thinks one thing and then changes course and thinks the opposite. I found it frustrating to only have the story come from his extremely narrow voice. The timeline of the story didn’t make sense- they ignore each other for 2 weeks (according to Elio) and spend many, many days not talking but yet they have time in Oliver’s 6 weeks there to form this bond? This book is not an ode to first love, it’s an ode to crazy obsessions. There were a few passages that were pretty graphic and really cemented the idea that this love wasn’t the healthiest.
But can we all talk about how incredible, absolutely beautifully Armie Hammer read this?? His voice is so rhythmic, melodic, hypnotizing. I could feel Elio’s bitterness, surprise, feigned nonchalance, deep spiraling into Oliver. Armie couldn’t have done anything else to make it a better performance.
I’m definitely seeing this movie!

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.

Wonderfully read love story

Not going to lie - came here for 7+ hours of Armie Hammer's voice in my ear.

It was worth every penny. This is a beautiful story, intricately written and wonderfully read in Hammer's almost overbearingly full, mellifluous voice.

There were moments when the story fell flat for me, which the performance compensated for. The story was also somewhat difficult to follow at points - particularly during the stream of consciousness digressions. I think the hypnotic quality to Hammer's voice also contributed to that. It was easy to lose your sense of place, space, time.

Beautiful listen. Lovely story.

I'm sure the future film brought you here

Great great story. Just a fun tid bit. The story is told from the first person preservative of Elio. And with most of us probably even knowing of this book/audiobook 'cause of the film. It can take a bit to get that the reader Armie Hammer is reading as Elio and not his character in the film, Oliver. As I'm sure we just naturally subconsciously see these characters from the familiar voice and due to the imagery we have already seen of this film.

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!

Travel to Italy from your chair.

Best romance I ever read. Atmospheric, full of subtle beauty and sexual tension between two main characters. I'm rereading again. Looking forward to see the film.

So beautiful. And Armie Hammer was wonderful. A literary gem. They should make Timothee Chalamet do a reading as well. :)

Full of self importance and overly complicated descriptions

This was a book I really wanted to enjoy. But it is a tough read and if I'm honest I struggled to get through it. The main protagonists are not remotely likeable and Elio the 17 year old at the centre of the story is a bore who laces every sentence with obscure references and dips in and out of German and Italian. This book tries too hard to be art and just comes across as pretentious

Haunting

Absolutely loved this book. To be honest it is a touch pretentious in places but the story is beautiful and heartbreaking. The setting is evocative and described beautifully. Makes me want to go on holiday to Italy! It’s narrated by the actor who plays Oliver in the film (which I haven’t yet seen but can’t wait to) and his reading of it is superb. I finished this days ago and I’m still thinking about it now. Fantastic.

Lush

I have read this book in its physical form and on first reading was slightly shocked at certain sections (you know the ones). Listening to this gave me a much better understanding of the characters and the story and the parts that had shocked me became tender and beautiful in Armie Hammer's reading. The man has a voice of silk.

This is an excellent story for anyone who likes to understand how people pine for others; how situations can be read many ways; and how every moment bleeds importance when you are young and everything seems just out of your reach.
