Call Me By Your Name is Andre Aciman’s first novel and it’s a book that tells the story of Elio, a seventeen year old Italian boy who falls helplessly in love with his family’s summer guest, Oliver. Andre Aciman did an excellent job depicting the thought train of a teenager as Elio tends to overthink about how he should act in front of Oliver but most of the time ends up being very shy and somewhat awkward which I found humorous considering I’m like this too. The one thing I especially loved is how this is a book about two men in love where the environment is a peaceful one as there isn’t anyone who tries to come between the two because they don’t agree with their sexuality whereas in other novels there is some form of conflict, even Elio’s parents support the relationship as their truly just want their son Elio to be happy. I also enjoyed the rawness of this novel, no detail gets left out. 5 stars
