Call Me By Your Name Review
Call Me By Your Name is one of the several books on my TBR list for 2020. I have read this book before, but I remember loving the story and writing style so much I just had to read it again. It was even better the second time.
Call Me By Your Name is a story based on a romance between a young Elio and an older summer guest that stays at their home in Italy. It has much more depth than your average love story and it grows further than a romantic tale. The author dives into the unusual feelings during the roller coaster of emotions that many readers can relate to.
The writing flows beautifully and poetically, you will be hooked from the first page. You cannot put the book down because you need to know how the story plays out and you want to have all the advice and lessons for yourself.
There are many references to classic artists, authors, poets, etc. It is a beautiful novel that really emphasizes the setting in Italy.
It is difficult for me to discuss this book without ruining it as there is a singular plot, I have shared numerous quotes from this book as the writing is beautiful and wise.
This story tackles what it means to have lust and love. It dives into insecurities, regrets, and confusion. Attraction, love, and lust can stir up feelings in us that do not make sense until the moment they do.
Exploring LGBTQ+ relationships in this novel has also been eye-opening. I hope this book aids you understand others or understand yourself.
