My thoughts on all the nominees for the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novel

I present my thoughts on the six novels nominated for a Hugo Award in 2020, along with some general thoughts and reflections. I don’t think the right book won, but I do understand why people like it. What I don’t understand is what people see in the book that placed second. On average, I think the nominees in 2020 were weak compared to recent years, but there were some gems in there too!
