The book Entanglement - Quantum and Otherwise encompasses a veiled sub genre of fictional crime drama that leaves the reader pondering about events and what occurs next. The Author John K. Danenbarger 'hits the nail on the head' in bringing together a visage of emotion and intellection with the way the characters are introduced and elaborated that encapsulates the reality of life in its raw and untame form.
The lives of protagonists Beth Sturgess (underage Prostitute on drugs turned EMT Nurse) and Geena Nuss (Structural Engineer) but to name a few, give a stable linear grasp to introduction, veering into the criss cross effect of the lives other characters such as Joe Tink (Stripper turned Home Manager), Kevin Nuss (Cop), Martin Case (Mathematician & Physicist), Davis Nuss (Marina Worker turned Fisherman), Ellen McKinnon (part time Bartender & Student), James Fredrick (Priest turned Mathematics and Logic Professor, Essayist in Science Writing & Philosophical Atheism), as well as many others impart in bringing the story to an unexpected yet nuanced ending.
It is a brilliant build up of character progression that melds together to create the relatable notion of life with its vicissitudes. There is honestly not a single negative point to be found, in that the book is professionally edited and the diverse veritable character portrayals that undergo an array of unique obstacles over an extent of time, specifically past, present and future, all come together like puzzle pieces to form a bigger and complete picture. What lends positively to the overall book is the meticulous manner in which every situation and character is described, that paints a wonderfully immersive flow of imagery.
Danenbarger has an indisputable talent, I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars , for it truly is a transfixing read that transports you through a kaleidoscope of emotion and thought conceptualization, that is the splendidly depicted characters interchanging parallel life cycles of an infinite yet finite concept, left undefined, that compels you to think and feel larger about life and its intricacies.
As the target audience falls within the adult contemporary range, Danenbarger has somehow managed to depict characters that cater for, and foster a sense of relatability from all walks of life in terms of gender, sex, age, beliefs, orientation, education, profession and as such the appeal and recommendation of the book expands across a vast range of readers from young adult to the elderly.
