Publisher's Summary

In this spellbinding new exploration of the varieties of love, the author of Call Me by Your Name lets us back into his characters' lives years after their first meeting

In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio's father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, now a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train upends Sami's visit and changes his life forever.

Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, 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 nuances of emotion that are the substance of passion. Find Me brings us back inside the world of one of our greatest contemporary romances to show us that in fact true love never dies.

Fantastic Book

Love being lost again in the story. Narration is excellent and highly recommended. I’m hoping there will be more someday.

Can't say it's a successful sequel to CMBYN

On one and another occasion I suspected this is the product of an old man's obscenity. Nevertheless, I would rather fail victim to this braw illusion. Hope that after years of departure you are still in each other's mind. Hope that true love never dies.

A poignant reflection on the passage of time

I can imagine there will be a lot of people who don’t appreciate ‘Find Me’. Rather than being the direct continuation of Elio and Oliver’s story that some may expect, it picks up on the lives of all the characters - starting with Elio’s father, Samuel. The narrative shifts between Samuel, Elio and Oliver to reflect the many paths our lives can take, and to demonstrate the steady passage of time that continues to pass, with or without our permission. In that way it’s a far more realistic book than one might have expected, but it’s not without hope or impossible romance ... far from it, in fact. Aciman’s prose is beautiful and lyrical - drawing the reader in to the mindset of each character we get to inhabit briefly. As joyful as it is to read, I’d also highly recommend the audio book as narrated by Michael Stuhlbarg, who played Elio’s father in the original film. The gravitas and tenderness he lends to the work is something truly special, and provides a perfect complement (or mirror) to what Andre Aciman himself has done. As I said, this won’t resonate with everyone - because some people just want Elio and Oliver to pick up where they left off - but for those who appreciate the romance of life, it’s a wonderful journey to undertake.

Dull narration

The narration from Michael Stuhlbar is a bit dull. There are several times when there’s no distinction between the characters. The whole narration is, as one would say, done by someone who is extremely tired. That’s the feeling you get at first.

The story on the other hand is a good continuation to the first one

Crushing disappointment

You have to wade through two highly improbable and dull relationships before you even get to Oliver. So disappointing. And I don't believe Aciman was mistranslated when he said that he finds 12-year-olds attractive, there is so much boring and weird ruminating on age in this book. Highly problematic. The first chapter is so pointless and bad I wonder if he was trolling all of us cmbyn fans.

Such A Disappointment

Seems like this book was a first draft of three or four different books stapled together and sold. Really did a disservice to the relationship of Oliver and Elio that we know from CMBYN

So disappointed

Not the sequel I, and I'm guessing many were looking for. So disappointed with it.
