Have you ever wondered what it's like to be worshipped from afar? If so, step back and digest Elio's feelings for Oliver – I was both moved and filled with admiration by the experience. If you're looking for a pacy thriller or a knife-edge murder, this isn't it. Probably not the best choice if you're going through a relationship crisis either. But it's a powerful read - sexually charged (without being too graphic) from beginning to the end.
