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)

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.

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.

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.

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!

I wanted it to be good...

Armie Hammer is a fantastic at narrating this book, but it doesn't half drag on! Honestly, it was all over the place, and waaay too long in describing possibilities rather than getting on with the story. When it did start a story (in part 3) it was good.

Not seen the film, probably will at some point, but in no rush to.

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.

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

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.

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.

Beautiful story, fantasticly narrated! You can be taken to summery Italy in every line. The narrator did a great job here, beautiful voice and great subtle nuances between characters.
