Eight White Nights is an unforgettable journey through that enchanted terrain where passion and fear and the sheer craving to ask for love and to show love can forever alter who we are. A man in his late twenties goes to a large Christmas party in Manhattan where a woman introduces herself with three words: I am Clara. Over the following seven days, they meet every evening at the same cinema. Overwhelmed yet cautious, he treads softly and won't hazard a move. The tension between them builds gradually, marked by ambivalence, hope, and distrust. As Andre, Aciman explores their emotions with uncompromising accuracy and sensuous prose, they move both closer together and farther apart, culminating on New Year's Eve in a final scene charged with magic and the promise of renewal.

    " This book was a huge disappointment. I absolutely loved Aciman's Call Me By Your Name, so I had high hopes for this one, but I just found it incredibly annoying. I did not like the character of Clara from the very beginning, and I kept thinking I would warm to her once I got to know her better, but it never happened--she was way too pretentious, and I could not fathom her mocking cruelty towards the narrator. I almost stopped reading after the first two nights, but I wanted to stick it out. There is still great beauty in Aciman's writing style, and there were a few passages that took my breath away, but there was not enough story to hold my interest. I made it through the middle of the last chapter when the book became overdue, and I finally decided to turn it in without finishing it. It is very rare that I don't finish a book, especially when I am that close! At least I can say that I gave it the old "college try." "

    " After about 30 pages of this with the repeating of "who is Clara?" about 45 times, I decided it was not worth my time. "

    " This book has such amazing prose that everyone should read it. That is all. "
