    A nicely written piece with real life characters spread from pre independence to present to future. The future era of technology is very well thought off and very well explained.

    A Great Read!

    The Storyline

    The story of False Ceilings is stretched through a span of over 130 years; starting from a warm July morning of 1930 to the summer of 2062. The protagonist of the story, Shakuntala, was born on some day of July 1930 in the picturesque valley of Dalhousie. Shankuntala’s mother, Kusum, died while giving birth to her second child marking that to be one of the most crucial points of Shakuntala’s life. Though it was the pre-independence era, in spite of all the opposition from his f...

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading False Ceilings

    Amit Sharma has been one of my favorite bloggers .The humour, plethora of emotions , his opinions on sensitive topics which were most of the times in sync with mine, his daddy diaries and many more write ups kept me always glued to his blog.

    Story line and my Review

    The book starts with Aaryan and his , "if - else" statement amusing the readers as they will start thinking, what it is all about. Amit grabs your absolute attention from the very first page and some where the coder in him see...

    An impressive debut

    This book is a far cry from what is usually published in the Indian Fiction category. The story has rich characters, vivid details and is filled with beautiful prose. The characters are very relatable and you can understand their thoughts, happiness and anguish through the words woven by the author.
    Delhi and Dalhousie are beautifully narrated and you can view the transformations of the cities as the story progresses through decades in this family saga of a dysfunctional family.

    False Ceilings - Excellent Storyline, Brilliantly Woven!

    Author Amit Sharma's book, False Ceilings, I have to admit, is a pleasant surprise in terms of how strongly it makes you feel nostalgic and want to go back to reading history as soon as possible. The summary at the back of the book provides a certain level of intrigue that is added to by the muted impressiveness of the front cover.

    The story, though a little too unnecessarily descriptive in its earlier pages, turns into one that you simply cannot put down. You just start craving for more at ...

    Gripping!

    The cover of this book fascinates you from the word go; it is certainly something that you cannot ignore. When I read the blurb, I realized this was a story that spanned five generations. This is where I decided I am going to certainly read this book.

    Page 1 and the author's impeccable language enthralls you. Unfortunately though, for me at least, this magic lasted only till I was halfway through the book. After a point, it was confusing and took some effort (read going back by a few pages)...

    A good literary read

    A story set in the beautiful town of Dalhousie spanning across generations – must make for an interesting read I mused before picking it up. The cover and the title both were in contradiction with the blurb a bit. An old radio and an almirah isn’t exactly much to go on is it? This is exactly what attracted me to the book!

    Plot

    The story is set in Dalhousie and Delhi. It traces the lives of four generations of people from a family. The writer weaves history and culture into the story which s...

    False Ceilings is the story of Shakuntala. Being the central character of the story she is carrying a burden of secret, which her uncle gifted her on the day of her wedding.

    Clever Narration. Gripping Read

    False Ceilings is a gripping tale of a dysfunctional family and their secret that passed on through generations.

On her wedding night, she is gifted a bundle covered in yellow cloth, to use wisely when the time is right. But then she keeps it as secret forever which is then passed on through generations. The story spans more than a century and when her great grandson accidentally discovers...
