I am giving the book Entanglement Quantem and Otherwise, by John Danenbarger, a 3 out of 4 rating. It is definitely full of entanglements from the very first page. The book follows many characters over time from the 1970's to 2044. Danenberger is great at developing multi-layered characters and connections. You will be realizing the connections at different turns and trying to remember where you've heard that name, many times.
The Prologue starts with Geena in the future who has received a letter from an old friend about her father and she decides to go on a journey to her past. Then the story starts up with Beth, Geena's mother as a teenager in trouble. You meet Joe, who saves Beth, and tries to find a way for himself. Throughout the book everyone who is closely related to, or far flung from Beth come into the story. Her husband Kevin, her children, Joe and his lovers, rich philanthropists, a priest, professors, and secret murderers, all create the web of entanglements, quantem and otherwise.

The connections these characters have no matter how distant or close to one another is incredible. The underlying science is an added thought provoking subject. This book has everything from prostitution and drug use, to sexuality, mental health, secrets, murder, love, and loss.

You may need to keep notes to track of all the moving pieces. This is the only serious issue I had with the book. It is full of character development, but some chapters just don't make a lot of sense and are long winded with no major addition to the story.

This book is thought provoking and emotional. It takes the reader on a roller coaster ride, and is sometimes confusing, but if you hold on to the end it will be worth your time. If you enjoy having to think while you're reading, this book will not disappoint. It won't be for everyone's taste Im sure, but it is still a good read.
