"Scandal has derailed Journalist Kitty Logan's career, a setback that is soon compounded by an even more devastating loss. Constance, the woman who taught Kitty everything she knew, is dying. At her mentor's bedside, Kitty asks her, "What is the one story you always wanted to write?" The answer lies in a single sheet of paper buried in Constance's office--a list of 100 names--with no notes or explanation. But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late. Determined to unlock the mystery and rebuild her own shaky confidence, Kitty throws herself into the investigation, using her skills and savvy to track down each of the names on the list and uncover their connection. Meeting these ordinary people and learning their stories, Kitty begins to piece together an unexpected portrait of Constance's life...and starts to understand her own."-P. [4] of cover.… (mais)

100 pages in and I have zero interest in continuing. Bail!

The last book I read by Cecelia Ahern was a bit disappointing (I think it was written as a YA novel), but this one was excellent. Journalist's friend, mentor and editor dies, just as she is facing up to a giant journalistic and ethical mistake she has made. Her new (possibly last-chance) assignment is to write a story based on a list of 100 names her mentor has left behind. What happens during her research not only makes a great story, but brings her redemption and even romance. Highly recommended. ( )

Slow moving, unrealistic plot, most important thread left unresolved. And you still feel uplifted and pleased at the end of the book. ( )

Kitty's career and life is in tatters. After wrongly and publicly accusing someone on her TV show, she is ashamed and his supporters are making her life a misery. Her job as a writer is under threat. Then her dying editor gifts her a list of One Hundred Names. But what is the connection. Can Kitty do Constance proud and save her career?

So follows her quest to find the one hundred people and discover what the story Constance wanted to tell was.

An endearing story of life. An enjoyable, but not exactly life-changing book. ( )

Kitty Logan is a disgraced journalist. In her unbridled drive for success she's cut corners and libeled an innocent man. The tabloid television news show she worked for is being sued for a lot of money.

The only one who still believes in Kitty is Constance, an editor and Kitty's mentor, but Constance is dying.

When Kitty asks Constance what story she regrets not writing, Constance tells her to fetch a file folder from her office. In the file is a list of one hundred names and nothing else. Before Constance can explain the importance of these names or how they're related she dies.

Partly because Kitty sees this as an opportunity to salvage her career and partly as a tribute to her late friend she decides to investigate these names and see if she can find and write the story that links them.

She can't. Or at least she hadn't been able to forty percent into the novel.

Rather than the unfolding of a promising plot premise the reader is presented with Kitty's very ordinary life, with the exception of excrement being smeared on her front door numerous times from irate readers and supporters of the man she libeled.

After interviewing a half dozen or so people on Constance' list and getting nowhere Kitty's getting frustrated and so was I.

At the beginning I had stretch my suspension of disbelieve to include the improbable plot point the the story hangs on - that a tabloid news show would allow a story to air that accuses a high school teacher of sexual misconduct with a student and fathering her child without solid evidence, like maybe DNA testing. I mean, do they have a death wish?

Being a journalist myself I know this would never be allowed to happen. If the reporter was incompetent enough to submit such an incendiary story without irrefutable evidence it would have been killed by the news editor, and for sure never got past the producer.

However, besides this grievous lack of research of the author's part I finally abandoned the novel because the story was boring and the writing mediocre.

Six names down, ninety-four to go? I don't think so. ( )
