How two lovers meet in Summer
Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Really nice story about a 17 year old teenager Elio meeting and falling for the house guest Oliver.

 

Teenage boy being romantic, he is Italian, and falling for a young professor who came to live in his house, in his room, to work on his book and helped out with paper work with his father, 

 

They met. They ate together and playing cool at first. The first 100 pages are all about the Elio longer to get to Oliver and afraid of what he would find out with him.

 

The rest of the book picked up quickly on how love came through. It is beautifully written and although there are some sex scenes, they are not really that pornographic. 

 

It reminds us all of youth, of Summer romance, or being bold because one has not learned how to act like an adult yet. 

 

Really enjoyable. This type of book is usually not my cup of tea. And I have enjoyed this a lot. 

 

Solid 4.5 read.

Reading progress update: I've read 121 out of 248 pages.
Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Elio is 17 and has hot for the new house guest Oliver. 

 

The first 121 pages are still on how much he wants him. And then dreamed of him being together. 

 

Horny would be a word of choice. Unlike chick-romance, the expression on want and sex is quite honest and out there.

 

It is fortunate that this is well written, or it would read corny as hell. 

 

Oliver is a nice looking and they were in swim suits. 

 

Nice

A teenager having a crash on the house guest. 

 

That's about it. 

 

The writing is good and it slow down the plot enough to go into the mind of the teenager, and details on the struggle with close proximity with the person of interest. 

 

Not usually my cup of tea. This is an exception.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-02-23 15:32
Will Bobie going home and run into more killings and killers
The Guilty (Will Robie) - David Baldacci

Will Robie has accidentally killed a kid based on bad intelligence. He had problem to do his job because it haunted him.

 

Now, his boss, only referred to as the Blue Man give him leave and asked him to visit his father that he had not seen or talked to for twenty years. 

 

His father was the judge and he was now in custody waiting for his trail for murder. 

 

A local drunk and troublemaker was killed because he imposingly has cheated on had spent the night with the judge's wife. 

 

Now he was not welcome to where he was from.

 

He father Dan was a violent asshole. 

 

His has now got a hot new stepmother and a younger brother Tyler. 

 

The more he wanted to get to the bottom of this, the more violent persons turned out. Some just wanted to mess him around a bit. While other go directly into shooting.

 

Lucky that Will is someone not only could fight back, but shoot back too.

 

Now he needed help. So his long trusted partner Jessica show up and watched his six. 

 

The two are running around following leads. 

 

But not really have a clue. His father Dan was still the jerk and wouldn't be too helpful.

 

 

The event also involved pedophile, blackmailing, and young sluts getting into the sex trade. 

 

There are just so few good persons around. 

 

I thought this is going to be boring and they just to sit around talking about feelings.

 

No. A lot of actions. A lot of shooting and get shot at.

 

So, something that I like. 

 

The only part I don't like is the hypocritical characters who go to church but tricked children to be molested. Kind of sick.

 

Overall, a good read. The later part is better as there were more actions. 

 

Solid 4.5 read.
