Entanglement Quantum and Otherwise by John K. Danenbarger.
The book follows a number of characters, who are seemingly connected to one another. Every decision that one character makes affects another character in the book, which I think is in reference to the title of the book. The book opens with Geena Nuss, who learns about the death oer mother, by Joe, who was a close friend of her mother’s. He informs her that she will have to tell her brother, who she has not spoken to in a long time.

Danenbarger manages to keep you on the edge of your seat, making you want to find out more, and every page you turn reveals something more about each character, while providing a deep and rich back story of each one of them. We are then introduced to a wealth of characters, from Joe Tink to his boyfriend Martin, Ellen a forty seven year old woman working as a bartender while writing a thesis. It is something every one of us can relate to, and I believe there is one person in the book who mirrors our characteristics to the t. The epilogue is somewhat bittersweet, and we are left with knowledge that the characters are not party to.

Though I came to like the book, the story tends to lag in the first few chapters and only picks up steam when fully in the middle of the book. At the beginning, you are thrust with multiple characters all at once and it’s a bit hard to keep up with all of them, but once the story starts to gain momentum, and the realization finally hits you, it’s all you can do not to flip to the end to find out how it ends.

I give it a three out of four, mainly because though it was thrilling to read and explore every character, there are parts of the book where it feels like the story is going nowhere and it becomes really hard to follow. I would recommend the book to any fan who likes reading thrillers and slow paced books, because this is one, and a damn good one at that.
