Seventeen-year-old Victor Fries has a cold heart. After his brother died in a tragic house fire for which Victor feels responsible, his parents have isolated themselves, and Victor has dedicated his whole life to one thing: science.

When Victor and Nora happen to meet at the cemetery outside of town, they are astonished to find the connection they have each been missing in their lives. Their summer quickly spirals into a beautiful romance, and Victor's cold heart begins to thaw, allowing him to enjoy life just a little more. But when Victor learns of Nora's illness, he's driven to try to find a solution to keep from losing another person he loves...by any means necessary.
Victor & Nora: A Gotham Love Story is a tragic tale about living life to the fullest and what it truly means to love...and to let go.
I’m back with yet another book review. I might actually be catching up on my reading goal for a year. Raise your hand if you have had a hard reading year *raises hand* life was going so well and then this pandemic hit and I have felt all out of sorts with reading. You would think with so much more time at home I would have more time to be read and have exceptionally killed my reading goal for this year. However that has not been the case and I have just been slowing still reading along, albeit at a much slower pace. Today’s post is a review on Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story.
I thought the book was a cute, fun, quick read. If you know the story regarding Mr. Freeze than it follows the same presence except now Mr. Freeze is a teenager, who is really crazy about science who just happens to meet and fall in love with a girl who is dying from a rare disease. I would definitely recommend this book if you have read any of the other books in the DC Ink comics series. Though the books in the series aren’t connected perfectly to each other, all the characters live in the same universe and at some point could cross over. I enjoyed this graphic novel by Lauren Myracle more than Catwoman, which she also wrote the words for.
I hope that you will pick up this book and read it. If you have already read it let me know what you think I’d love to hear your thoughts. I hope to see you again in another post.
