Customer Review

on 13 December 2013
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.
