  • Flawed, but a delight to revisit Oliver and Elio

    All too short, but intense - though in a different way to CMBYN. It was a long way into the book before the first mention of Oliver; but it was like a jolt of memory when it came. There are moments throughout that bring back flashes of the first novel, but where there love seemed to come more slowly, here it comes at times almost too fast, for some characters. Much time has passed since the events of CMBYN; the story leaps years between each section, which perhaps leaves some things feeling unexplored. Can a youthful love be rekindled, after so many years? Has the life not lived changed Elio and Oliver? If you want to know, read it and - perhaps - weep.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Lacks the longing of CMBYN

    As a stand alone book I enjoyed it but when compared to CMBYN it lacks the longing and love the you feel in the original

  • Sometimes it's better to not write a sequel

    Aciman has a very specific writing style that I think lent itself very well to 'Call Me by Your Name' and the teenage confusion, but I think it just felt a little off here. I've had plenty of time to consider why I liked 'Call Me by Your Name' way better than this one, and I think it's partially because I empathised with teenage Elio but couldn't bring myself to see life through the eyes of the grown-up Elio and his father. But that might a well be on me and how far detached from their age and experiences I am. Overall, I think it took me way too long, and I didn't DNF it out of pure spite and maybe a little bit of hope.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Mooi

    Mooi geschreven, geeft een bijzonder perspectief van een liefde die doorging en een leven samen dat werd uitgesteld. Alleen jammer dat het laatste stuk een beetje kort was. Zeker een aanrader.
