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.

Beautiful story, fantasticly narrated! You can be taken to summery Italy in every line. The narrator did a great job here, beautiful voice and great subtle nuances between characters.

Why do some products capture our attention, while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of habit? Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us? This audiobook introduces listeners to the "Hook Model," a four steps process companies use to build customer habits. Through consecutive hook cycles, successful products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back repeatedly - without depending on costly advertising or aggressive messaging. Hooked is a guide to building products people can't put down.

Love the content. Would have been more engaging if the narrator was less robotic. An audiobook on technology spoken by in a monotonous narrative can easily become boring to follow. Other than that, Nir Eyal has a great grasp of what he is talking about. Powerful stuff, full of A-ha moments!
