The Fire Never Goes Out: A Memoir in Pictures

We rated this book:


It can be tough at times to live in today’s world. For Noelle Stevenson, there is no exception. For fans who are aware of her literary work, such as her book Nimona, as well as her fan art, they may not be aware of her internal struggles. The Fire Never Goes Out: A Memoir in Pictures is Noelle’s way of explaining and helping others like her. Her memoir is different from others because she stays true to her talent by making the majority of the book a comic. Because of this, her story can be a quick read for some, but for others, they can internalize her struggle to help themselves.

Some life lessons happen, and the reader is allowed into a deeper part of Stevenson’s life than what they see through her drawings. Noelle’s life has looked perfect on the outside, with a great career and accomplishments to show—but inside, her pain was fierce. I appreciate the spotlight on mental health, as it’s a hot topic right now and one that needs to be more familiar to the public. Overall, this is a fun and quick book (because of the pictures), but still holds seriousness and life lessons for us all.
