Reading the Ceiling

By Dayo Forster
Reading the Ceiling by Dayo Forster digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Ayodele has just turned eighteen and has decided, having now reached womanhood, that the time is right to lose her virginity. She's drawn up a shortlist: Reuben, the failsafe; Yuan, a long-admired schoolfriend; Frederick Adams, the 42-year-old, soon-to-be-pot-bellied father of her best friend. What she doesn't know is that her choice of suitor will have a drastic effect on the rest of her life. Three men. Three paths. One will send Ayodele to Europe, to university and to a very different life - but it will be a voyage strewn with heartache. Another will send her around the globe on an epic journey, transforming her beyond recognition but at the cost of an almost unbearable loss. And another will see her remain in Africa, a wife and mother caught in a polygamous marriage. Each will change her irrevocably - but which will she choose?

Thinking Face“Intriguing premise and an easy book to read, which gave a great understanding of the country and living life there. One thing that I had a hard time wrapping my head around was how everything was described with so little feelings. It often felt like events where described in a "cold" way. But even if that felt a bit weird when I read it, I still enjoyed it. But I do wish it would have been even more done with the split timeline.”
Thinking Face“I really like the first story and half of the second. The last story was the most interesting to me but the main character felt super different from the first two.”
Thumbs Up“I liked the first story the best and then they went downhill for me. I think the time jumps were too significant in the end for me to truly follow her actions and I wasn’t sure what the point was by the end. We had lots of characters introduced only for a few chapters and then gone again. It ended up being three stars because it was original and I liked the first third a lot, but it won’t be a story that stays with me I think.”
