“Entanglement, as a part of quantum physics, tells us that two particles can be directly connected even across vast distances.”

I was first introduced to Geena; a middle aged, successful woman who, underneath it all, was isolated from her family and harbored a frightening magnitude of resentment towards her father. The author, John K Danenbarger, then takes us on a journey to the past, to before Geena was born, and there we learn about who her parents were and the people who shaped them. The roots of her resentment are found in a group of people who kindled intersecting relationships with each other, be it simply by chance, malicious intent, love or personal gain.

Geena’s parents were Kevin and Beth Nuss; they each had a sad and disturbing past life by the time they met. Beth was rescued from a life of drugs and prostitution by a man named Joe Tink. Thanks to Joe, she found herself sailing to Bermuda; a new beginning which had its own troubles waiting to greet her. Kevin had a tumultuous childhood and unhealthy relationships with both of his parents, which fueled his flawed reasons for doing bad things. This book contains perfect examples of how a single decision leads to a domino effect, affecting the lives of many people along the way, even across generations. It was interesting to see how the lives of the characters intersected in some way, whether complex or simple.

A common theme throughout Entanglement - Quantum and Otherwise was a traumatic upbringing, which most characters had in common. The difference was in how they responded to it in their adult lives, some became murderous while others developed a co-dependency with their partners.

What I enjoyed about the book is how fast paced it was and the highly engaging plot. The story went from the perspective of one character to the next; each perspective was unique, giving the reader the opportunity to distinguish between the characters. The author’s writing was highly descriptive, and the characters were flawed and complex. There was never a dull moment as I was reading this book and there was nothing I did not like about the story. This book was well-edited; I found no grammatical errors.

For the reasons above, I rate this book a 4 out of 4 stars.

I recommend this book to an adult audience because it contains graphic violence and sexual acts. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery and intrigue.
