Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Cecelia Ahern's books - enjoyed PS I Love You and Thanks for the Memories, not so keen on The Gift or The Book of Tomorrow. Sometimes it seems like she has a great idea for a book, but doesn't quite manage to follow through with a believable or engaging story.

So, the premise for this one is that journalist Kitty is given a list of names by her dying mentor Constance, with no indication of who these people are or why Constance was so interested in them. This happens at a time when Kitty is at her lowest ebb and is in the midst of a crisis of conscience and confidence, having been successfully sued by a PE teacher she falsely accused of abusing two of his pupils. She feels she owes it to Constance to redeem her career and self-respect by proving that she can be an honest and principled journalist.

As she starts to work her way through the list of names, Kitty encounters a group of seemingly non-descript people who on the surface appear to have nothing in common, and she struggles to see why Constance should have pointed her in their direction. However as their stories develop it becomes clear to Kitty that, with most people, it's what goes on beneath the surface that counts.

This one definitely fell into the `hit' category for me. It's a light, funny and heartwarming read (albeit verging on the sentimental at times) but there's also a bit of an edge to it. My one criticism would be that things are tied up a little too neatly and predictably at the end, but overall this didn't spoil my enjoyment of this charming and very likeable book.

I was intrigued by the idea behind this book and looked forward to an exciting read. I was disappointed. The characters failed to spark my interest, including Kitty, the main character who I found to be actually quite unlikeable. The characters remained flat and uninteresting throughout, as did the "story". There were some sparks and highlights, such as the quirky and heart-warming story about Mary-Rose. Regrettably, the other interesting character died right at the start of the book. I found myself skimming faster and faster just to finish the book, getting little enjoyment. The book just wasn't real and engaging, the characters weren't believable.

The ending was ok, even though the reader would have hoped for something more after 300+ boring pages - something to make the time spent seem less wasted.

Didn't think this was up to Cecila Aherns usual standard, rather disappointing read. Nothing quirky or unusal about this book, normally I wonder how her imagination works as her books are unusual but this one misses the mark.

Format: Paperback
I was first introduced to Cecelia Ahern through the movie P.S. I LOVE YOU. I fell in love with the story and characters portrayed in the movie and began searching for more works by this writer. Her most recent offering, ONE HUNDRED NAMES presents seven thematically connected stories that testify to Ahern's continued fascination with ordinary people whose seemingly ordinary existence are filled with bittersweet events, moments of discovery and life lessons learned.

In this imaginative journey, Kitty Logan, a disgraced television reporter, attempts to redeem herself by fulfilling the dream of her terminally ill mentor, friend and Etcetera magazine owner Constance Dubois. She discovers a list made by Constance containing 100 unrelated names but no information about how they are related and what plans Constance had for their `stories". After Constance's death she begins a search for the people on the list in an attempt to pay tribute to her friend as well as revive her own waning career. Having been given a deadline for getting the story by the new editor at Etcetera she begins her search for the folks on "the list". She finally locates, meets and interviews six of the hundred people and finds herself being drawn into their lives, all the while struggling to deal with the catastrophe that her own life has become. Who these people are and what hand fate has dealt to each of them is the foundation of which this novel is built and you will have to read the book yourself to see where each carefully placed piece of brick and mortar takes our protagonist.

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK: Another heartwarming tale for Ahern whose ultimate message is that every person living, no matter how seemingly insignificant they appear to be, has a unique story to tell and a good listener can find something significant in each, whether is be encouragement, humor, inspiration, or knowledge.

Format: Paperback
I had read Cecelia Ahern's first 2 books and hated the second one so I never read any more. However, the story for One Hundred Names sounded intriguing and I thought I would give her another try. I needn't have bothered. The book might as well have been called Twenty Names or A Thousand Names as we only found out a few of their stories anyway. It took me weeks to get through this - I would read half a chapter before getting bored - but I ploughed on really hoping for a good ending. Such a waste of time. There was nothing original or interesting about this book at all and I found the writing to be very immature. A schoolgoer with half an imagination could have written it. Even the theme of a journalist ruining her career by making a TV programme based on false accusations is just copied straight from recent real-life Irish events. I am none the wiser as to how this author has become so popular. And one last thing - Ambrose is normally a man's name so seems a curious choice for a central female character!
