The book 'Entanglement Quantum and Otherwise' by John K. Danenbarger is about relationships, mistakes, actions and their consequences.This is John Danenbarger's debut novel. It's a family drama and a crime thriller combined in one.
This is a story about a few generations of a family and the people who were associated with them. It has an exceedingly good premise - weaving a number of lives together in a very intricate way. The book starts with Geena receiving a letter about the death of her father from her friend Joe. She seems more upset about her friend not personally contacting her than the death of her father. From there we learn of Beth who happens to be Geena's mother. All the characters' perspectives are beautifully mapped together taking care of every small detail to create an amazing plot. This story is about a number of people, some more down in luck than others, who interact with each other in the most amusing and surprising ways.
There are many characters and every character has an in-depth description making the novel realistic and fascinating. The myriad of characters are from all walks of life and the many plot twists make it an intriguing read. The actions and choices of each character affects not only them but also the people surrounding them. The book does not have just one protagonist. All characters are equally important to the plot, but not at the same time.
It's interesting because it describes how one character influences the other's life. It has various storylines over different time leaps which are beautifully written and are perfectly displayed and connected.
It's a captivating read and a page turner that simply can't be put down until we know what happens next.
The things I liked about this book were proper character development and nice description about the events and surroundings bringing more life to the plot. It also has a little sci-fi and science. There were a very few things I didn't like about the book, for instance, it was sometimes difficult to identify with the characters which made it difficult to like them.
I didn't find any errors in the book and it was an enjoyable read.
My rating of this book is 3 out of 4
I would recommend the book to people who enjoy mystery, drama and crime thrillers and to adults because it contains some mature language and explicit content.
