Publisher's Summary

Her modified DNA assures superior strength, intelligence, and health for 110 years. Jason will find her secret, at any cost. Jason must die.

Karen Lane has been a hunted woman nearly 30 years. To save her friends, she took the last dose of a product called FSAT. It gave her the expected strength to free them from Jason Matthews. Unexpectedly, unlike other test subjects, FSAT didn't kill her.

Jason had to know why. He would give anything, sacrifice anyone, to recapture her and continue his brutal "testing."

It's part of his big Plan. A plan for worldwide domination, with himself as the supreme leader.

Karen eluded Jason for years. No more. She is the strongest, most intelligent person alive. She has decided. Jason Matthews must die.

Because if he wins, everyone loses.

Fast paced fun story. Not a great villain.

I enjoyed this story of a woman with enhanced abilities on the run from the Government that wants her dead, or at least captured. It was entertaining.

It was not without its flaws. First off, the villain was too one dimensional, almost like he was being evil for evil's sake. He had a very short bout or reflection, but shrugs it off.
Secondly, the evil government is portrayed as doing evil things like...Obamacare. The evil described is only evil to some. I understand that this is coming from a religious view of the world and this is clearly displayed by the main protagonists actions (she donates a lot of stuff to charity and uses her money to do the right thing and help others). I questioned her faith for a while due to the fact that here is a very devout Christian woman who is attempting to assassinate a US Senator. She does finally address her cognitive dissonance and thinks about other avenues to take down the antagonist. I applaud Col. Best for this.

While there were flaws, Overall the story was enjoyable and I would be interested to see where it goes from here. I would like to see the villain, Jason Matthews, have more of an arc to his character. Maybe fill in some more of his back story or something.

The narration was top notch by the Author. I really enjoyed it.

I requested a free review copy of this audio book and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.

Captivating from beginning

I usually get bored with fiction and usually see where the story is going but this storyline was not predictable. I enjoyed it and the reading was very clear without a flat monotone. Look forward to next book!!!

A Surprising Twist

Thought provoking and well written . I was drawn in from the very beginning. A new twist on ancient matter. I'm intrigued and looking forward to more.

Intriguing and thought provoking

I'm not much of a fictional book reader, but I couldn't put this one down. Had to finish it in a single sitting. Looking forward to the next one!

Good start for a series then it became confusing

Would you try another book from Col. Bill Best and/or Bill Best?

I would listen to another book by Col Best. I liked this one until it started to wander all over the place.

Would you recommend 2020 - The Countdown Begins (End of the Sixth Age) to your friends? Why or why not?

This was a good book, i just should have paid more attention at the end.

Which character – as performed by Bill Best – was your favorite?

The main heroine. She had several names. She was strong mdntally and phisically and she used that strength.

Could you see 2020 - The Countdown Begins (End of the Sixth Age) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I don't from what i listened to that it would make a good movie.

Any additional comments?

I receieved a copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

A book that could be a warning

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes ; the narrator is good and added a lot. He does a good job of inflecting emotion that would be missed vs the kindle book

What other book might you compare 2020 - The Countdown Begins (End of the Sixth Age) to and why?

Terminal Man , Jurassic Park all have aspects. Consider it religious SciFi

What about Bill Best’s performance did you like?

He has a sense of forboding that added drama

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes its not too long so I did. I plan to listen to the others as well I assume are coming

Any additional comments?

I was given tis book to read by the author. The thoughts are my honest feelings after listening
