True beauty submitted by carcarcar on August 3, 2011, 8:19pm Truly a beautiful book, I was required to read it for a Sex,Gender, Sexuality course I took and it made me examine what I want in a romantic, intimate relationship. Absolutely breathtaking insight into the lives of two men struggling to love each other.

Summer loving submitted by Peter Kooger on June 22, 2017, 8:13am This book is a fantastic summer beach read. Aciman perfectly captures the hot, sunny, langorous feel of a lazy summer day in Italy. He contrasts this with the constant tension of Elio's inner monologue. The effect is that you can really feel the dissonance between the public face that Elio puts on and his raw inner emotions. I loved the book.

Existence, love, loss submitted by ferielp on August 17, 2018, 12:33pm The rich landscape he creates feels warm and close and tangible. The love story feels so intense and immediate, being told from a teen's point of view as he discovers his sexuality and tries to develop a personal philosophy to explain himself to himself. It feels real, captured in a way that narrows the distance between the characters and the reader.

Poetry in literary form submitted by alleywater on June 15, 2019, 9:50pm It has been months since I read this book, but I find myself thinking about it often. I feel like I need to go back and read my own copy to highlight and annotate all the beautiful lines. The main characters arch really sweeps you into Italy and you much find out what happens next or your heart might just burst.

Intense but Boring submitted by Maria Maguire on June 30, 2019, 2:08pm This book came to me highly recommended, but I couldn't enjoy it. It was very introspective, and didn't have enough actual things happening for my taste. Be warned: it's also very explicit, and in strange ways. If you're the kind of person who enjoys slower books and artsy movies you may enjoy this book (lots of people do!) but if you like more action oriented reading, I'd suggest a pass on this one.

I love their love story submitted by bcartm01 on June 17, 2022, 11:17pm The setting (Italy), the characters, the love story, the language - I love this book. It is so well written and the ending is superb. After watching the movie, I definitely miss Elio’s inner dialogue from the book, as it is so colorful and beautifully written. I will be reading this book again at some point.

not for me submitted by JessicaIJ on June 9, 2023, 1:36pm DNF, way too gross and descriptive for me, a sex repulsed ace. also used ableist jokes towards the beginning, which is more understandable given the release date, but still made me uncomfortable.

Slow burn submitted by asangtani on July 29, 2023, 10:00am If you’re looking for a more intense version of song of Achilles, this is the book for you.
