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

More praise for Call Me By Your Name:

"Hammer’s soft, velvety voice lends itself perfectly to the story and its Italian setting. While you might think this one isn’t worth a listen if you’ve already seen the movie or read the book, many reviewers say it is still worth taking in even if you know the story - some even say it’s worth listening to more than once." (AskMen)

Editors Select, October 2017

Andre Aciman's critically acclaimed novel may finally be stepping into modern classic status, having recently emerged from relative obscurity due to the upcoming movie release starring Armie Hammer. And its place in the literary canon is well deserved, depicting perfectly the infatuated experience of first love (I won't say "feeling" because the picture Aciman paints is not a singular "thing" - it's very much a journey through obsession). The story is beautiful, erotic, and feels firmly rooted in human truths (and will make you blush). But what makes it truly worthy of listening to - and why it's my pick for October - is THAT voice. Armie Hammer's narration is among the best I've ever experienced. —Emily, Audible Editor

Critic Reviews

"...Hammer's voice is brimming with such melody that, if you listen to it long enough, you can probably get drunk off it." (Vulture.com)

"...Armie Hammer (who plays Oliver in the movie) steps effortlessly into Elio's interior world. The result is staggering." (BookRiot)

 "A must-listen for anyone familiar with the book or film." (Buzzfeed)

Just what you need.

I loved watching the movie, it was simple with incredible on and off screen performances. From the background music to direction I loved it all.
This audiobook truly did justice to the expectations of the audience who wanted some more part of Elio and Oliver's lives.

Mesmerizing

At first I was sad that Timothee Chalamet (who played Elio in the movie) wasn't narrating the story which is entirely from Elio's POV. But soon I realized that Armie Hammer was the perfect choice to read the book.
His deep voice is made for an intimate story such as this!

The book sounds more complete than the movie

I watched the movie and loved it. Wanted to read the book and loved it even more. It breaks your heart many more times than the movie and the book's story is slightly longer than what was shown in the movie. The fact that Armie Hammer read it, added to the effect for people who have watched the movie.

Crying in public

That’s what the ending of this book had me doing. Crying in the middle of a restaurant, and immediately on the last words as read by Armie Hammer, rewinding to hear the last few minutes all over again. Then I wrote a love poem to my husband. Great book! Great performance.

Equal parts beautiful and heartbreaking

This story is both beautiful and heartbreaking. “Call Me By Your Name” is one of the most incredible novels to have ever written. This love story about Elio and Oliver will touch your heart and then break it into a million pieces. This is one of those novels and stories that will stay with you for the rest of your life. “Call Me By Your Name” is not only a brilliant masterpiece of LGBT literature, but it is also one of the greatest romance and coming of age stories to ever be written.

Masterful!

André Aciman has written a masterpiece in Call Me By Your Name. The ease of voice and the effortless flow of words through Elio’s point of view is exquisite. The exploration and journey of finding yourself and of sexual awakening, together with a sort of lust, makes this story even more relatable as we’ve all had unattainable crushes we wish would become something more. Now onto Armie Hammer’s magnificent performance. He nails the narration in CMBY and really encamptures the listener’s attention all throughout the story. Armie has a sort of non-chalantness to his voice that almost feels like he was born to read this story. All in all, with the masterful writing of Aciman and the beautiful narration by Hammer, this book deserves all of the praise and more.

Profound sensuality~

An absolutely beautiful, daring and complex novel! Aciman's economy of style is at once direct and poetic. He handles a controversial subject with such sensitivity, frankness and unabashed romanticism that swoons at every turn. Armie Hammer's rich baritone, and elegant reading is superb. I will return to this again and again.

Beautiful story

I’m not sure how I feel about this book. On one hand, I was totally mesmerized and deeply engrossed in it. On the other hand, I was a little bored, frustrated and confused. I guess that just makes it more like a real obsessive relationship. Elio is not in love with Oliver, he is obsessed and obsessive. Most of the story is Elio’s stream of consciousness, there is surprisingly little dialogue between the characters. Elio thinks one thing and then changes course and thinks the opposite. I found it frustrating to only have the story come from his extremely narrow voice. The timeline of the story didn’t make sense- they ignore each other for 2 weeks (according to Elio) and spend many, many days not talking but yet they have time in Oliver’s 6 weeks there to form this bond? This book is not an ode to first love, it’s an ode to crazy obsessions. There were a few passages that were pretty graphic and really cemented the idea that this love wasn’t the healthiest.
But can we all talk about how incredible, absolutely beautifully Armie Hammer read this?? His voice is so rhythmic, melodic, hypnotizing. I could feel Elio’s bitterness, surprise, feigned nonchalance, deep spiraling into Oliver. Armie couldn’t have done anything else to make it a better performance.
I’m definitely seeing this movie!

I must be missing something

I wanted to love this book. I wanted to experience all that the other reviewers had experienced. Instead I found myself waiting for something to happen or to be deeply touched by something. The time wasted by the main characters is annoying and frustrating. The time spent listening to the book leaves me confused as to what I just spent so long listening to..... and why I spent that long listening.

Stunning and deep dive into infatuation

This story has Virginia Woolf's stream of consciousness and Walt Whitman's sensuality combined in what is probably the most beautiful book I've read this year.

Beautiful and bittersweet

A beautifully haunting and bittersweet love story that makes you ache and wish you could experience a love like it.

The narration by Armie is perfect. His smooth voice takes the story to a deeper level and makes you feel like it is playing out around you.

The movie should definitely be watched as well!

Full of self importance and overly complicated descriptions

This was a book I really wanted to enjoy. But it is a tough read and if I'm honest I struggled to get through it. The main protagonists are not remotely likeable and Elio the 17 year old at the centre of the story is a bore who laces every sentence with obscure references and dips in and out of German and Italian. This book tries too hard to be art and just comes across as pretentious

Execrable! Will return for refund.

Was swayed by the many positive reviews but found this tome unbearable. Tedious, staggeringly self indulgent, prolix and yearningly turgid. Dreadful. Characters unsympathetic and twattish. Writing is Shockingly bad compared to lyrically beautiful "the line of beauty" which tackles very similar issues at a very similar point in 20th century history, the difference in literary quality is starkly shocking - this book cringeful, the other soberingly beautiful.

Great highs and boring lows.

The book has some incredible moments but it gets too caught up in side story particularly Elio's bisexuality and the polygamy of the relationship. it makes the story feel less intimate between them and although Elio's bisexuality isn't a problem in itself it really detracts from the story as his love for Marzia seems jarring and out of nowhere. Some of the background of the story (like italian art) is explored a little too deeply and it leaves you more confused than intrigued. The ending is very real and personally not what im sure anyone reading wanted but thats not the books job, it has a heartwrenching ending that denies the reader everything and nothing at once. Worth the listen but at times can be very infuriating to hear.

Sexy, sensual and beautiful

This book is so intimate and evocative I took to only listening to it when I was alone. Armie Hammer reads it beautifully and the descriptions of young love, Italy and summer are simply stunning. This book will hopefully make you remember your first intense love and the breathtaking beauty of intellect and acceptance.
A wonderful book for the open-minded.

It gets better

The start of this book is interminable, repetitive and juvenile but not in the evocative way I hoped. The only thing that pulled me through was Armie Hammer’s voice! I’m glad I stuck with it because about half way though it becomes quite beautiful. It’s also very pretentious, but this doesn’t make it inaccessible, just occasionally very cringey. Glad I listened rather than read it or I probably wouldn’t have pushed through.

Lush

I have read this book in its physical form and on first reading was slightly shocked at certain sections (you know the ones). Listening to this gave me a much better understanding of the characters and the story and the parts that had shocked me became tender and beautiful in Armie Hammer's reading. The man has a voice of silk.

This is an excellent story for anyone who likes to understand how people pine for others; how situations can be read many ways; and how every moment bleeds importance when you are young and everything seems just out of your reach.

Having read the book, watched the film and listened to the story multiple times - this is a book I'll be coming back to for years to come. Armie Hammer's narration is absolute perfection, wrapping you tightly in the most beautifully written and intimate love story I've ever experienced.

Always beautiful

Whether I read this book, or listen to it being read, it doesn't diminish the beauty that this novel is. Armie Hammer's voice is so soothing, and really suits. Definitely worth purchasing with a credit, and is certainly the type of book to fall asleep to, and come back to time and time again.
