If you love reading crime novels, this is the one you must get your hands on. The literary fiction is written by John K Danenbarger and revolves around five extremely intriguing characters. In addition, the book perfectly displays the life of a family of two generations.
Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise starts with Geena Nuss receiving a letter from an old family friend with unfortunate news. After that, it takes the reader back in time, where Geena's mother, Beth, and her story come into the picture. The sixteen-year-old Beth, a prostitute, is saved by Joe from her addictions and is sent to Bermuda. In the later chapters, it unfolds more about the dysfunctional family and an even interesting character- Kevin Nuss. Kevin's character is the most complex among all the characters the plot surrounds. His psychopathic nature doesn't fail to bring chills down the spine.
The book has a complex and variety of characters. The author has done a brilliant job writing each character so carefully that it paints a clear picture of each one of them in readers' minds. Another interesting character that brings more depth to the storyline is Martin, Joe's lover. He is a quantum physicist and studies parallel universes. I love how the concept blends well with the plot and simply puts you in awe.
The writer has done a fabulous job of researching every element that goes into the book, be it the concepts of the multiverse or the psychopathic nature and killings. That makes the characters seem real and creepy. The story's flow and author's writing style are brilliant, including the conversations between the characters. They are so real, as if they are happening in front of you.
In my opinion, all the characters are the representation of human nature, from a psychopath to strong-willed Beth, who overcomes her addictions, to Joe, who is a true friend. I loved the author's crisp writing and enjoyed the story's pace. Since the book is very character-driven, there is something to take away from every character that stays long after the book ends. And the author has done justice to all the characters by writing them brilliantly.
The book is professionally edited, which only enhances the reading experience, and thus, I rate the book 4 out 4 stars. The engaging story and the characters very well deserved the perfect rating. However, it contains instances of violence and profanity, so I recommend this book to only adult readers. On the other hand, the book will surely surprise you with how the author gives a taste of different genres woven into one.
