Book Review: Day is Night, by J R Jyoti

My thoughts on the book:
Humor is not a genre I take lightly. I know very few authors who can actually do that genre justice. So when a book promises to tickle the funny bones, I expect laughs, not chuckles.

Okay. I’d adjust with more laughs and a few chuckles thrown in. But nothing less. This book, Day is Night, promises humorous stories on the cover itself. Unfortunately, the book doesn’t deliver. Neither were they stories, nor humorous. I could say they were satirical to a certain extent, but it was just a collection of 62 thoughts the author must have had in his mind. They are expressed as they are. The ending of each thought sometimes gets a chuckle, but the reader has to go through a couple of pages of rant to get there.

Oddly enough, the book has no about page for the author. We do get to know him a little through the preface, but no specific page, not even a paragraph. I’d picked this book expecting a lot. Sad to say, I’m feeling let down.

Poetry and writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
