Reviewed in India on 8 April 2018
One of those books that's so adept at describing feelings and all the firsts in romantic love, it sends you back in time to those deeply felt moments when you were as vulnerable, as hopeful, as fearful, as anxious, as stupid, as joyous, and could go from intense happiness and walking on the clouds one minute, to absolute sadness with nary a ray of hope in sight in another. Elio takes you back to that time in your life when the rawness of feelings wasn't tempered by experience. And Aciman manages this stellar feat without ever sounding trite. You can't help but feel as Elio feels.
