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. Andr Aciman's critically acclaimed debut novel is a frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion.

There's much to be admired in Call Me by Your Name—the prose is undeniably lush and some of the passages can leave you swooning—but I found myself ultimately feeling that it didn't live up to its reputation. There is a mixture of implausibility and superficiality in the narrative that often left me feeling incredulous, sometimes even frustrated. I was surprised that other reviewers hardly even raised an eyebrow to the character of Elio—a seventeen year old polyglot well-versed in everything from Greek philosophy to 19th century literary realism (Stendhal for God's sake?), who just also happens to be a musical prodigy recreationally transcribing Haydn and tossing off renditions of Bach as Busoni would have played it if he'd heard Liszt. Ok, so we have an incredibly intellectually precocious adolescent boy. In addition to being implausible almost to the point of absurdity (which I acknowledge is not a problem in itself), this characterization seems to muddy the waters as to the fact that Elio's still a moody, emotionally immature teenager. I sympathize with why some readers might be so dazzled by his intellectual chops, that they confuse it for some sort of emotional wisdom. But in fact, Elio sulks, broods, and plays high school mind games with the object of his infatuation—the confident, dashing, twenty-four year old college professor, Oliver. I can also see why some might also confuse Elio's erotic desire, so richly described (often ad nauseum), with something deep and meaningful—and perhaps it is, but Aciman only intimates this and never gives us very compelling reasons to think that there is something too much more than limerence at play. Are we meant to think that Elio and Oliver love each other? That they share some special understanding? If so, what is it? Some profound appreciation of who the other person is? It's not impossible to just assume some answers to these questions, but I struggled to find the them in the morass of obsession, brooding, and horniness that Elio nurtures for Oliver throughout most of the novel.

I was also a little bothered by how the character of Marzia functions in the novel. It seemed to me that, while Elio and Oliver were living somewhat semi-charmed lives making out on Monet's berm, waxing intellectual about Heraclitus, and generally serving as their own obstructions to happiness, Marzia is the only character in the novel who might actually be suffering. Perhaps we're supposed to imagine that Marzia is fine with being being a pawn in Elio and Oliver's erotic games, but I took her for having feelings for Elio that he does not really reciprocate. He largely characterizes his feelings for Marzia in subordination to his feelings for Oliver. In fact, Elio's lack of sympathy for Marzia serves as evidence of his emotional immaturity, which some readers seem to miss. While obsession over every little thing Oliver does and taking each gesture or glance as a dagger or a kiss, he is indifferent to how his behavior might register with Marzia. Might she not be tormented and suffering from Elio keeping her at an emotional distance while at the same time having a sexually intimate relationship with her? He never really addresses this, instead equivocating: "Barely half an hour ago I was asking Oliver to fuck me and now here I was about to make love to Marzia, and yet neither had anything to do with the other." Only a thoughtless and immature person could truly believe that.

Still, in spite of the ways it frustrated me, I like the book. On the whole, it was enjoyable to read. Just don't expect one of the great coming-of-age romantic novels of our time—unless you take romance to simply be profound yearning. ( )

Aciman does a wonderful job helping the reader get "lost" in the lazy-days-of-summer setting. This story is beautifully written and explores desire, love, loss, and heartbreak. ( )

Bei diesem Buch bin ich sehr gespalten, was meine Meinung angeht, deshalb hab ich keine Stern-Bewertung. Zuerst mal hab ich das Ende sehr gemocht, auf eine seltsame Art und Weise und hab geweint :(. Andererseits ist dieses Buch sehr seltsam und teilweise sehe ich nicht wirklich den Sinn hinter manchen Szenen und das ist vollkommen verständlich. If you know, you know. Ich bin froh, dass ichs gelesen habe.

In poetic, elevated prose, André Aciman has written a powerful psychological drama of two bisexual men who share their most intimate selves, intellectually, spiritually, and physically. Elio’s thoughts and emotions are depicted in vivid detail that unashamedly highlight the infatuation, lust, love, and obsession that sometimes result from a first love.

Whoever said the soul and the body met in the pineal gland was a fool. It's the asshole, stupid.
If youth must canter, then who'll do the galloping?
Perhaps we were friends first and lovers second.
But then perhaps this is what lovers are.
All I knew was that I had nothing left to hide from him. I had never felt freer or safer in my life.
"I may have come close, but I never had what you had. Something always held me back or stood in the way. How you live your life is your business. But remember, our hearts and our bodies are given to us only once. Most of us can't help but live as though we've got two lives to live, one is the mockup, the other the finished version, and then there are all those versions in between. But there's only one, and before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it. Right now there's sorrow. I don't envy the pain. But I envy you the pain." (225)
