How two lovers meet in Summer

Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Really nice story about a 17 year old teenager Elio meeting and falling for the house guest Oliver.

 

Teenage boy being romantic, he is Italian, and falling for a young professor who came to live in his house, in his room, to work on his book and helped out with paper work with his father, 

 

They met. They ate together and playing cool at first. The first 100 pages are all about the Elio longer to get to Oliver and afraid of what he would find out with him.

 

The rest of the book picked up quickly on how love came through. It is beautifully written and although there are some sex scenes, they are not really that pornographic. 

 

It reminds us all of youth, of Summer romance, or being bold because one has not learned how to act like an adult yet. 

 

Really enjoyable. This type of book is usually not my cup of tea. And I have enjoyed this a lot. 

 

Solid 4.5 read.
