Entangled is a very difficult novel to describe as many of the ideas on which the story is built are atypical. Time travel is a major theme of the novel, but it is time travel with a twist; those traveling back in time embody their past selves and, in many cases, share the mind as well as the body of their past self. I applaud the author’s ability to take such an overused theme (time travel) and create something different. The explanations of the character’s emotions while traveling back in time and sharing a conscious stream of thought with their past selves were the most fascinating passages of the novel. Are all the characters able to coexist in harmony with their past selves?
The novel is very well written; a combination of quick pacing and alluring characters makes Entangled hard to put down. Further, the romantic aspects of the book were skillfully handled by the author. The book never felt sleazy and the erotica scenes were well placed, genuinely adding to the storyline.
The one downfall of the novel is the overzealous science talk sprinkled throughout the narrative. Much of the scientific explanation behind the time travel felt confusing and overdone. From the beginning, the book requires a certain suspension of belief on the part of the reader that the overwhelming scientific explanations were simply not necessary. Luckily, these passages do not occur too often and therefore, do not take away from the enjoyment of the story
Entangled is a fast paced, steamy read that easily deserves 4 out of 4 stars. Though I thought some of the scientific elements of the story were farfetched and confusing, they didn’t detract from the overall pacing of the narrative. Any fans of romance, especially those who enjoy a time travel or sci-fi twist, will surely enjoy this book. Please note graphic sexual scenes are included in this story and for that reason, this book may not be suitable for all readers.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review! The class distinctions were very interesting - especially the idea that a person could move from one class to the next based on their educational level.

Thank you! It was refreshing to read something a little different!
