Anno 2020 by James Morcan – book review and giveaway

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book Anno 2020 by James Morcan to review. You may find out more about the author on his website.

Anno 2020 by James Morcan

Here is the book blurb.

Eleven individuals around the world must communicate remotely with each other while separated during the coronavirus lockdowns of Anno MMXX (Year 2020).

I’ve read several books which James Morcan has written jointly with his father Lance, so I was very interested to see what his first solo title would be like.

This fictional book is set during the Coronavirus multiple lockdowns of 2020 with the characters using various forms of digital technology to communicate, such as video chat or podcast. Some of the chapters focus on individuals but most are between a pair of characters and the story swaps around between them all.

All the characters are in different parts of the world, some where they live and some who were far from home when lockdown was enforced, like 19 year old Emma in Wuhan. They all have complicated issues in their lives, which the author cleverly draws out.

Even though it is one novel, the book has a feel of short stories as we keep alternating back and forth between the scenes. And although you see the connection between each pair, you do start wondering where it is all leading. But it follows a very clever path through to the conclusion.

Anno 2020 is available on Amazon in Kindle format. A great topical read that we can all relate to.

    Anno 2020 sounds like my kind of book at the moment. I’ve not heard of the Morcan’s so looking forward to reading their books soon
