My Never Ending List

I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.  

Call Me By Your Name - audio

Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman
I couldn’t do it. I listened to 4 CD’s of this 7-pack novel and I finally had to stop. It was just too painful for me to continue. I think it was a combination of the main character and the narrator.
There was just too much inner turmoil and reflection on the part of the main character Elio, that I found myself yelling at him to “Do something!” This poor teen was overthinking situations, concealing his feeling, and living inside his head. As I listened, it seemed that everything was happening inside Elio’s head and I got tired of listening to his turmoil. The narrator’s voice carried on as he followed Elio’s struggles and I soon got tired of both of them. Elio couldn’t seem to find his voice in this novel yet the person who did speak, the narrator, had a voice I didn’t care for on this novel. Moving on…
Didn’t rate the novel since I didn’t finish it.
