Call me curious

This is one of those books I picked up on a whim. I’ve never heard of Aciman before but his name sounded exotic and the title was intriguing. And . . . uhhh . . . the cover picture made me think this was a romance novel, which it is, just not the kind I thought. This is a love story between two young men and it is erotic, so it might not be for everyone. But don’t let that stop you as unlike other gay interest novels, this one blurs the lines between traditional love stories and those that even in these times still seem taboo. This is a beautifully written story of the awakening of passion between two people who share an intellectual connectivity. It tells you how love, in its purest sense, has the ability to transform you and change your perspective. By the time you finish the book, you, the reader, are transformed to as you make the realization that love really does know no boundaries and that to love one person and is to be that person.
