The book Entanglement - Quantum and Otherwise by John K Danenbarger is a story following the lives of a set of people whose lives are at first glance unconnected. We meet Beth who before meeting Joe Tink, was at the lowest point in her life. He gave her a new chance at life despite not having much. She grabbed this opportunity and despite the bad experiences and difficulties she faced, she was able to make something of herself. After many years of separation, these characters meet again in the most unlikely situation. Quantum physics is a major theme that runs through the entire book. Some of the characters study this course and this course intertwines itself with the other characters through association. Danenbarger shows us how family shapes an individual from childhood. Bad parenting many times leads these children to bad lives and situations. The nature versus nurture principle is also highlighted, with Davis and Kevin as the focal points. Also, we see that it is possible to be with someone and yet not know them. Read the book for more insight on this.

The positive aspects of this book are worthy of note. To start with, this book was exceptionally well-edited. There was no single typo, spelling, or grammatical error. The book was well written and the diction was quite simply amazing. I learned a lot of new words. Also, the characters were depicted with flaws and real issues which made them human and relatable. This book is thought-provoking. The backstories of the characters prevented me from being too judgemental of them and their poor choices. We learn that while one's beginnings matter and can affect them, one can rise above them and be better. Some characters turn their lemons into lemonade. Joe who went from being a stripper to owning a business is a prime example of this. When one is determined, one can achieve what they set out to do. The chaotic nature of the book gives us an insight into the inner workings of the minds of the characters.

The negative aspect of the book is that it was a little difficult to get into at first. I could not get immersed in the book immediately. The moment I did, though, I was hooked.

My rating for this book is 4 out of 4 stars. I gave this book a perfect rating because it was a great read. Although it had a negative aspect, it was not enough to subtract a star from it. Danenbarger shows himself to be a very good writer who pays meticulous attention to his work to produce the best results.

I recommend this book to people who are interested in learning more about quantum physics and the like, people who are looking for a book to ponder upon, and people who are not homophobic. Also, because of the mature themes, this book is not for young teens.
