What Authors are saying about False Ceilings

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.
Ritu Lalit, Bestselling Author of A Bowlful of Butterflies and Chakra, Chronicles of the witch way
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.
Rohit Gore, Bestselling Author of Circle of Three and The Guardian Angels
Trans-generational saga isn’t an easy genre to manage for anyone, leave alone a debut author. Amit Sharma handles myriad characters and their histories very well. What i loved about the book is the trip down the memory lane. For those of us who grew up in the 80s, life with black & white TV, no computers and so many other things…the author takes you back in time.
Kanchana Banerjee, Author of A Forgotten Affair published by Harper Collins
Amit has portrayed his characters brilliantly and their flaws and failures are simply put out there, without any embellishments. I hated a few characters more than the others, sympathized with some and pitied the one who was responsible for the devastating domino effect in their lives. I can visualize this book being made into a movie.
Sulekha Rawat, Author of A Patchwork Quilt and short stories in Social Potpourri
The book is a fascinating read. The characters, the plot, the dialog, and the flow of the prose is strong enough to keep a reader hooked till the end.
I think it’s a book worth picking up and reading twice.
Nikhil Kumar, Author of Where are my pants and Anya's Lyric
I have loved books with ironical endings – you get what you need only when you don’t need it, when every effort put in seems vain, every tear rolled was a waste of emotion, every question asked was nothing but a rhetorical. I loved this one a lot for the story and a lot more for the ending.
There aren’t a lot of books that leave an imprint on you, but this one surely did for me.
