Number Seventy-Five is a short 74 page thriller by best selling author, Ashley Fontainne. I really enjoyed this book. It is a nice, quick read for an evening or weekend of relaxing and it hooks you from the very start.
To have a beginning, middle and end with such a short amount of pages can be very difficult to pull off but Fontainne does it fantastically. You find yourself immersed in what happens to the main character, and in how the story is going to end.
Even in the short 74 pages, Fontainne writes twists and turns that keep you guessing how it's going to end right up until the last line is read.
I thought that at times in the beginning of the story the prose got a little "purple" so to speak, but Fontainne moved past that quickly and presents a great story. There was one character (I won't go into details because it might give stuff away) that I felt wasn't quite right. Maybe he just didn't play his role the way I would have liked... I can't really place my finger on it. But I felt like his personality didn't quite fit who he was supposed to be.
All-in-all a great story. I'm giving Number Seventy-Five 4 out of 5 stars.
