“Happiness is that essence of life, which keeps the life going. To have a dream of seeing smile on every face is something that only a pure soul can desire; all we need is to make sure that we lead our lives like a celebration!”
Well, before starting the review of this title, “Fireworks Of Humour – To See A Smile On Every Face Only To Make Human Life A Celebration” by Author Nandanan Nair, let me mention that the Author has dedicated this book both to his idol and ideal. His idol being Goddess Saraswathi – the Goddess of Wisdom and his ideal being his better half, Mrs. KB Valsalakumari. The Author has clearly mentioned that it is only because of the support of his wife and the blessings of Goddess Saraswathi, he has been successful in writing this book.

Book Title: The title of this book, “Fireworks Of Humour – To See A Smile On Every Face Only To Make Human Life A Celebration” is again something that can be found bit eccentric due to the extra-long letters in them. In addition, due to the longevity of the book title it cannot be catchy, as the readers simply could not keep up with such a long title!
Moreover, the addition of ‘Sub-Title’ to this book has created an impression of even more forceful humour. Instead of using the prime keywords, the Author has used a complete sentence in his book title. In addition, the readers might find it odd to pick up a title like this where the book title and sub-title are too long to remember. Well, the Author had a great aim with his book but he simply failed to reflect that through the title of his book and this title cannot be regarded as an apt one for a literary fiction book.

Author Nandanan Nair has gave his best shot to create humour in his novel however; he has missed a few practical points in his writing. The Author should have taken care of the readers who lacks sense of humour and who can easily get offended by his writings. Therefore, at various points it seems to be a forceful attempt to create humour as the mention of political satires are too much, which may not be appreciated by all kinds of readers. Still, the Author must be given a chance for his honest work!
