So, what are other readers saying about this book?




"Mr. Morcan writes detailed stories of people living in 2020, dealing with the world pandemic and economic perils. Each story is emotionally complicated, crisscrossing the world connecting on a human level using present-day technology.

All characters come to their new beginnings or end with newly founded beliefs. Their journeys involve a wide range of decisions that must overcome political, psychological, and philosophical barriers.
" - Roy Murry, Amazon

"A thought-provoking, must-read! Fantastic! A story of how people are coping with lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Masterly told through alternating chapters in different countries across the world. People with different opinions, demographics, nationalities and religions communicate remotely with each other. As they face the virus, each one is dealing with personal issues as well. I really enjoyed Anno 2020 and highly recommend it to all." - Sheri A. Wilkinson, Amazon

"Outstanding read! The global ensemble of characters presented by author James Morcan provides an amazing vehicle for diversity of perspective and experience regarding the pandemic, political and civil unrest seen in this unique time called 2020. The gem of this book however lies not solely in the drama called COVID-19 (which is good, don't get me wrong!) but more so in the bigger questions Morcan presents to his reader. What was Anno 2020 to you? This book will make you start asking these questions...Highly recommended." - Elizabeth Schmidt, Amazon













Wow, it sounds like quite a read, and something we can all relate to!
