One Hundred Names By Cecelia Ahern

Title: One Hundred Names
Author: Cecelia Ahern
Publication Date: 11th October 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins

Journalist Kitty Logan's career is being destroyed by scandal - and now she faces losing the woman who guided and taught her everything she knew. At her terminally ill friend's beside, Kitty asks - what is the one story she always wanted to write? The answer lies in a file buried in Constance's office: a list of one hundred names. There is no synopsis, nothing to explain what the story is or who these people are. The list is simply a mystery.
But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late. With everything to prove, Kitty is assigned the most important task of her life: to write the story her mentor never had opportunity to. Kitty not only has to track down and meet the people on the list, but find out what connects them. And, in the process of hearing ordinary people's stories, she starts to understand her own.

Now i've always been a big fan of Cecelia Ahern's, Iv read pretty much every book she has ever written and have loved them very very much especially Ps I Love You and Where the Rainbow ends.
Now when I first saw the cover of this book I thought Yes! another book by Cecelia Ahern Im going to love it, A Hundred Names what possibly could happen?

So we meet the ever so lovely Kitty Logan who's a journalist but her career is slowly going down the pan after writing a story which happened to be such a bad scandal leaving her name being tarnished and noone wanting to work with her.However her mentor Constance is the only one who has always believed in Kitty and taught her everything she knew. Kitty asked her what is the one story she always wanted to constance explains her answer lies in a file buried in her office a list of One Hundred Names..Kitty left confused tries to ask her friend however she is too late. Kitty must decide herself what the hundred names mean, what's the connection with them all and find a story..

For me this book I enjoyed some parts but I also was disappointed with other parts. At one point reading this book I felt confused and as though the story wasn't really going anywhere. However i stuck it out and enjoyed the last couple of chapters. I did feel very sorry for Kitty having her career be tarnished like that but it taught her you can't always trust everyone but also you mustn't judge a book before it's cover. Kitty was definitely the heroine in this book and having to piece the whole one hundred names as one big puzzle was fantastic.
I loved some of the stories from the people Kitty meets in this book, I don't want to give too much away but people who are a big fan of Cecelia Ahern then you will enjoy this!
