Happy Reviews by Happy Readers

False Ceilings is a captivating saga spanning decades. It is a masterfully told story of transformations told through the eyes of six lives. Exhilarating and vastly entertaining, it is a must read story of love and destruction spread over generations.

When I picked up False Ceilings, I was expecting certain rawness in the narration of the story as is customary from a new author. I was pleasantly surprised that this saga that starts in pre-independence India and spans generations to come to the India of today was narrated so well, even though it jumped back and forth. Well done Amit Sharma. Look forward to reading more of your books.
