Entanglement Quantum and Otherwise by John K Danenbarger is a story of multiple characters with a difficult past and them coincidentally crossing each other's path in some way or the other.
The story Introduces Genna Nuss, the first character, receiving a letter from a family friend, Joe Tink. The letter informs her about her father's death and Joe Tink going away. Joe was not just a family friend but also a guide and a person she can lean on. His going away brings her great sorrow.
Then the story moves on and introduces her mother Beth who left her home, was homeless and had to depend on prostitution to provide her with meals and other survival needs. It is then, she met Joe Tink, who provided her with food and shelter when she was on the verge of her death. Joe himself was a stripper and was barely surviving on the money he earned. Beth later met Kevin (a small town policeman) whom she married and had Geena. They also adopted Davis, who had a history with aggressiveness and anger because of which he was in prison.
The novel is character-driven and each character had their own history and a terrible past. Each character is deeply flawed and hence relatable. This novel though has a little disturbing storyline, it shows how one wrong decision by one person can influence so many lives. The writing style used by the author is quite poetic and dramatic. The book captures the reader's attention from the first chapter and keeps them absorbed until the end. Though the story is told with the perspective of different characters and the author keeps alternating with each character's perspective, the storyline is not confusing and the readers need not read again and again to understand where they are in the story.
The storyline also deals heavily with murders and sex scenes. And also the mindset of those who commit murders. While reading we find how some feel remorse and guilt for their crimes on the other hand some don't have any feelings whatsoever.
I didn't find any grammatical or typing errors. Hence, this book is perfectly edited. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars for above reasons. However, I recommend this book to only adult readers for the storyline contains explicit violence scenes.
