by André Aciman
I picked this book because a friend recommended it to me. I haven’t made much of a dent yet. My first impressions however are good. I have read reviews recently that go from hating it and refusing to finish to people saying the book is wonderful and will stick with you forever. The book is about a seventeen year old boy and his ongoing relationship with a summer guest at his parents mansion in Italy. Their relationship slowly grows closure throughout the summer. The book takes place in northern Italy 1983.
While I’m not that far into the book yet in my opinion I think it is going to be a very interesting read. I’m excited to see what direction the author takes the book in.
