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.

This story took me back to many periods in my life. It opened old wounds and made me think of lovers past. I adored it and will listen to it over and over.

"Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe," declared the parson, "would be doing the world at large a service!" It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

Although Joan Hickson's narration was beautiful, it was confusing that she was reading in the first person of a male character. It did my head in. I kept thinking SHE was Miss Marple. Didn't work for me - and the story itself was one of AC's worst.
