Entanglement - Quantum and Otherwise is a thriller and romance novel by John K Danenbarger. It is narrated from a first-person point of view by a character called Davis and a third-person point of view by the author. It tries to show how quantum physics applies in the lives of characters in the plot. The plot ends in a way that leaves the reader with some questions like what was in Martin’s research. It is divided into five parts, and each part has several chapters.
The story starts when Geena receives an unexpected letter from Joe, her distant friend. The information in this letter was terrifying to Geena. Then the author takes us back six decades before the delivery when Geena’s late mother, Beth, is sixteen-years-old. Beth is working as a prostitute when he meets Joe, who helps her escape this life to a town called Bermuda. Things occur in Bermuda that force Beth to go back to her parents. On the other hand, Kevin Nuss, Geena’s father, is living with his drunken father. He has a dream of becoming a detective. He commits many atrocities in his life. Cricket has too much hatred for his father, Ludovico, because of thing told to him by his mother. He has a sympathetic and good heart. The characters have emotional, interesting and terrifying lives that everybody needs to know about.
The thing that I liked most about the novel is that it is written in a fascinating style that l enjoyed reading. The arrangement of words and phrases is skillful. The development of characters is superb. Each character is well developed when the author mentions their physical appearances and backgrounds. There are many themes covered in the plot ranging from love, religion to science.
The thing that I did not like about the novel is that it has words and idioms that are difficult and gave me a hard time to comprehend. The plot lacks a distinct protagonist with characters like Beth, Joe and Geena sharing equal roles, which did not allow me to know the real protagonist. There are atheistic ideas shared in the plot. It is exceptionally well-edited as I found no errors as I was reading.
I rate it 3 out of 4 stars deducting a star because of reasons mentioned above. I recommend it to physists, especially those studying quantum physics. People who enjoy romance may also enjoy it. It has erotic content and a lot of profanity hence not recommended for young audiences.
