Find Me | Andr Aciman

In this spellbinding exploration of the varieties of love, the author of the worldwide bestseller Call Me by Your Name revisits its complex and beguiling characters decades after their first meeting. No novel in recent memory has spoken more movingly to contemporary readers about the nature of love than Andr Aciman's haunting Call Me by Your Name. First published in 2007, it was hailed as "a love letter, an invocation . . . an exceptionally beautiful book" (Stacey D'Erasmo, The New York Times Book Review). Nearly three quarters of a million copies have been sold, and the book became a much-loved, Academy Award-winning film starring Timothe Chalamet as the young Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love. In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio's father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami's plans and changes his life forever.Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic. Aciman is a master of sensibility, of the intimate details and the emotional nuances that are the substance of passion. Find Me brings us back inside the magic circle of one of our greatest contemporary romances to ask if, in fact, true love ever dies.

The writing is beautiful but I so hated Elio‘s father by the end of the first 100 pages. I was just tired of reading the navel gazing. Bring on the characters I care for already!

Started this one and I am immediately sucked in, just as I was with Call Me By Your Name. So much love for these characters and this writing.

Is anyone else struggling with this book or is it just me? 😞 I‘m fifty pages in and it‘s a struggle, not necessarily because I had any expectations regarding it (I try to avoid this every time I read a sequel). It‘s mostly the writing - I find it so stilled and dry. I just can‘t seem to get into the story.

If you‘ve read Aciman you‘ll know that he has an ability to tap into desire like no one else, and Find Me is no exception. However those looking for a continuation of Call Me By Your Name May be left wanting more. 4/5 stars

I read a bit last night, a bit over breakfast, and a whole bunch on my morning bike ride. Now I‘m less than a hundred pages from the end of FIND ME, which has me enchanted. Aciman‘s prose is like Elena Ferrante mixed with Anne Rice mixed with Daphne du Maurier. I‘m enthralled with his dialogue, in particular. It‘s distinctly international, as one might expect from a writer who‘s lived as many places as Aciman. I find it unnatural but evocative.

Emilymdxn I‘m obsessed with his writing style, I love it so so much. It‘s so dreamy and puts so many feelings into words that are so hard to catch and hold onto. He‘s one of my favourite writers of all time 2w
xicanti @Emilymdxn he‘s definitely one to read and reread. 2w

I had this vision of myself reading FIND ME in a single day, but between breakfast and my yearly Starbucks I‘ve only read about thirty pages. Maybe tomorrow? I mean, I‘m definitely gonna read more tonight, but I don‘t think I‘ve got time now to binge it.

Also, I think this‘ll probably be my last yearly Starbucks. The caramel brûlée latte‘s good, but it ain‘t really $5.88 for a smallish one good.

I went to see André Aciman speak before I read this book and found out this was not a full sequel to CMBYN. So I began reading with an open mind & adjusted expectations.

Well worth the read. We follow Elio‘s father, and then Elio with a new love, but we ache for the truth and rawness we felt alongside Oliver and Elio when they were young. The same way we do now sometimes, as we get older. Aciman knows what we want though, so try to be patient ?.

Emilymdxn I adored this book, I‘m so glad you appreciated the same things about it as I did! Andre Aciman is so perfect 2w
MicheleinPhilly I haven‘t read this yet but I‘m going to see Aciman next week. 🎉 2w
readordierachel Glad to read this review! I'm really looking forward to the book. 2w

Find Me is a continuation of Oliver and Elio's romance in Call Me By Your Name - more like an extended epilogue than a sequel or standalone. Aciman's writing is still dripping with passion, the characters' emotions are still intensely felt and rendered, but it's not as suffocating as Elio's youthful infatuation in the original. An extended review will be available to subscribers at http://www.keepingupwiththepenguins.com/new-releases/ #NewBooks

CarolynM I've been tossing up whether or not I want to read this one. I think I do so I'm stacking it🙂 4w
keepingupwiththepenguins @CarolynM Yes, why not? 😍 I'd love to hear what you think when you get to it! 3w

I want to force one of my friends to read this so that I can complain about how much I did not like this book and they can either tell me how right I am or tell me that I am insane and I can rant at them until they sigh and tell me to stop scaring innocent bystanders. I have a lot of feelings about this book.

readordierachel Oh no!! I was really looking forward to this one. I loved Call Me By Your Name. 4w
Jas16 @readordierachel I would not at all be surprised if I am in the minority in my opinion. Most of the reviews I have read have been positive. 4w
readordierachel I am so intrigued now. I want to know your opinions! But I'll have to read the book first. 4w

Jas16 @readordierachel definitely let me know when you read it and we can discuss! 4w
CarolynM I want to know your opinions too! The last part of Call a Me By Your a Name was the part I liked best so I had high hopes for this one. 4w
BarbaraBB Great review. It makes me want to read the book 😀 4w
Reggie I cannot read this one. I hear his dad gets together with an old flame and he and Oliver get together while Oliver is married. It‘s not what I want. I was heart broken after the first one but I don‘t want THAT. 4w
Jas16 @Reggie in the first section Elio‘s father meets a younger woman on a train and falls in love with her pretty much instantly. I was interested in reading more about Elio‘s dad at first and thought it was an interesting approach to the sequel but,well, I didn‘t end up liking much of anything. In the last few pages Oliver leaves his wife to reunite with Elio. Clearly I think you are ok skipping this one but if you ever change your mind let me know 4w

Listen, I‘m grateful my library lets me borrow so much expensive stuff for free, but their processing bias REALLY irks me. The tagged book came out on October 29th and was ready for me to pick up on the 31st. Most of the others in this week‘s haul have been out for months, but they‘ve only just made it through processing because the library ALWAYS shunts genres and comics to the back of the queue even though LOTS of us borrow them. Grrr.

readordierachel That's super annoying 4w
xicanti @readordierachel it‘s like, I don‘t mind waiting for stuff because I can‘t read everything all at once anyways, but it bothers me that the “prestigious” titles get pushed through quickly while the “trashy” things languish for months. They only bought 11 copies of FIND ME compared to 24 of WAYWARD SON, so it‘s not like they don‘t realize there‘s a big local audience for that sort of fiction. 4w
readordierachel Genre snobbery is so ridiculous. 4w
readordierachel P.S. Wayward Son is really fun 4w
xicanti @readordierachel I‘m excited for it. Just gotta squeeze in a reread of CARRY ON before I take the leap! 4w

Very different from call me by your name - I think some people won‘t like it because of that - but an astonishingly good novel in its own right. Less of a love story almost? More of a meditation on ageing and time, what we remember, the stories we tell about ourselves and two people working their way back together very slowly. I loved it so much as a series of character studies and Andre Aciman‘s style is always perfect.

MellieAntoinette High hopes for this one. Great review! 1mo

1. Tagged book and Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra. I‘ve been waiting for Find Me for so long and it‘s every bit as good as I hoped so far

2. The Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane, such a beautiful book

3. How beautiful London looks and how it feels being out on the streets as people get festive and excited but before the Christmas music starts

The level of excitement I have for this book is so high I pre-ordered it. I never do that. And then to top it off, it was pre-ordered through Amazon 😬. Anyone know why they‘re the only ones releasing the paperback the same day? If it‘s an error I‘m canceling because I hate them, but I really don‘t like hardcover as a rule.

Mehso-so

The long awaited sequel to Call Me By Your Name, we find the star crossed lovers Elio and Oliver and where they are at twenty years later. Told in four parts with Elio's father, Elio and Oliver as the focused characters, we learn more about their stories. Though Andre Aciman's beautiful writing permeates this follow-up, the storytelling is stilted, disconnected, and droll at times. Even the long awaited union appears forced. Complete meh.
