Kirkus Reviews

Excerpt from KIRKUS REVIEW of 2020

"A political sendup skewers the presidential campaign process."

Of Timothy Cooper’s novel, 2020,  Kirkus Reviews writes that it's an ”opus [which] echoes the current state of contemporary unrest in Washington, D.C., and the world at large” and “an ambitious literary undertaking.”

It describes the novel as “a unique and humorous political caricature parodying the country’s electoral process, its numerous hypocrisies and mudslinging behaviors, and (if thinly veiled) Donald Trump’s cabinet selection process.“ Kirkus characterizes it as a novel that “more closely resembles a whirlwind kaleidoscopic fever dream than a campaign trail chronology,” and suggests that readers may be “enthralled by Cooper’s creatively inspired grasp on the concept of farcical political lampooning.”  

Finally, Kirkus concludes that 2020 is an “eccentric and often hilarious satire” [and] "entertainment tailor-made for fans of political fiction who want a fantastical, vividly realized escape from the bizarro reality of contemporary government."

Goodreads' readers weigh in as well:

"I absolutely loved this book! It was hilarious and at the same time non-heretical. The author did an amazing job portraying a Christ that is non-political in a time when we need a Christ to be involved in our political process... Jesus is not a Republican. Jesus is not a Democrat. Jesus is ... Jesus, and he's got MY vote!" -- Pat Gent, Goodreads


Gary Patton from Goodreads also says of 2020, “The thesis of this book will not be liked by Christians. But, Jesus' actual Followers will love it and be empowered by it!”
