Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise by John K. Danenbarger, is a riveting novel which depicts how persons from completely different walks of life are all somehow mysteriously connected. This novel touches on themes such as family, science, crime, murder and death. At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Geena Nuss, a successful, middle-aged engineer who after receiving a letter from a long-time friend, Joe Tink, is forced down memory lane. As the story unravels, we are taken to the past where we come across interesting characters, each of whom must come to terms with the inevitable, death, or more favorably likened to the bony-eared assfish.
Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise is unmistakably a well written novel. The author's skillful use of literary devices, such as metaphors and personification throughout the novel is compelling. The vocabulary consists of complex terminologies, which is intriguing to readers such as myself who have an appreciation for complexity. Also, the writing style of Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise is articulately presented. As it relates to the characters, Danenbarger did an excellent job of showcasing each in his own unique way. Although the novel consists of multiple settings and time periods, it was at no point confusing as each chapter was descriptively written. The title of the novel is fitting for the relationships formed among the characters.
In terms of negative aspect of the book, there is not much that stood out. However, I was baffled by the untimely passing of Beth Nuss. It was rather tragic. I think her death could have been handled differently.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars due to the fact that the themes were well-developed. The characters were also well developed and relatable. The plots and twists made the novel quite mysterious and engaging. The book was also well edited as there was only a very minor error.
I would recommend an adult audience for the novel Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise. Reason being is that the novel includes sexual contents and murder, themes more fitting for a more mature audience. The novel is also recommended for people who have an appreciation for the natural sciences. It is also recommended for persons who are seeking to widen their vocabulary.
