One Hundred Names – Cecelia Ahern

Posted: November 1, 2012 in general fiction, Review

Kitty Logan has made a huge mistake in her career as a journalist.  Now her mentor, Constance, lies dying of cancer.  She’s given Kitty a last story lead; a list of one hundred names.  Before Kitty can ask who the names are, Constance passes.  Kitty must figure out how the names are connected and write the story as a tribute to Constance.

Light, frothy, and fun to read, this book cheers you up while not being sickly.  There’s bad things happening but everything turns out right in the end.  There’s a positive theme throughout, with the message being one of hope and to follow your dreams.  There are multiple stories of people, and they’re all cleverly entwined at the ending.

The whole book there’s the undercurrent of the connection the names share and in the back of my mind I was trying to figure it out, while enjoying the story.  Then we were teased and told Kitty had figured it out and I still couldn’t find it, and can’t wait for it to be revealed.  Then the secret is uncovered and ‘of course!’  It’s perfect, very fitting with
who Constance was.  Read this, see if you can figure it out, but don’t forget to enjoy the story.

A really good book I hugely enjoyed and read in one sitting.  I just had to see what happened next!
