***** Loiorion: It is not a book written for leisure reading, but instead to provoke profound thinking and leave the characters’ stories and actions dancing about in your mind for hours after putting the text aside…. It clearly took a lot of effort and brilliance to outline the plot, let alone flush its details out to such perfection.

*****Janet Slipak, MyBook-Abyss.com: Profound. Thought-provoking, oddly satirical at times but effective to the core of the story. Intriguing and insightful, yet strangely adaptive to the genre through delving into the depths of the soul of each complex, multi-layered character fleshed out to perfection.

*****Ann Stevenson on Amazon.com: One warning:  Start this book with sufficient free time as curiosity about the plot development is quite gripping!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, thus recommending the same reading therapy for you, young people, who seek new experiences, a new way of looking at life and learning from the mistakes of others.

*****Raeesah A: Danenbarger has an indisputable talent,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.

*****Bea01_98: The lives of many characters intertwine in this breathtaking literary crime novel: Kevin, Beth, Joe, Ellen, Cricket and Geena give you a peek into their lives, and after the first few pages you will not be able to pull away. In “Entanglement – Quantum and Otherwise” by John K Danenbarger we see murder and love, ambition and desperation, all tangled up with scientific details that make the story completely unique. Definitely a book that must be read more than once….If you are even a little bit curious, give it a try; it will be worth it.

*****Kirkus Reviews: Gritty characters solidify an intelligent story and an abstract concept. 

****Lomeraniel Audiobook Reviews: I think there is where resides the beauty and complexity of this book. It is not someone’s story, as much as a book about relationships and about how we influence each other’s lives.

*****Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews: Yes, it’s a crime story, but it is so much more.

*****Jessica Belmont, Writer, Book Blogger, Copy Editor, Proof reader: Unlike anything I’ve read. Highly recommended.

*****Mihir Shah for U.S. Review of Books: The entrance of Ellen Lodovico, her research in cetacean communication, particularly dolphins, and a chance encounter on the highway with her and Case adds a surreal layer of Inception-level complexity to the novel that will have readers making comparisons to Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his knack for magical realism.

*****Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite: The writing is stellar and the terrific descriptions fill it with realism and humanity. It is a cunningly plotted story with unforgettable characters, a tale that is never lacking in suspense.

*****Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite: Themes of love and adventure, prostitution, family secrets, and human connection are brilliantly written.

****Liam Xavier on Amazon.co.uk: There is a consistent delivery of compelling drama and scintillating romance that allows the reader to dip into each narrative with a growing curiosity as to the books eventual denouement. How can this possibly end? What will happen to Beth or to Kevin or to Joe? These are questions that keep us interested and, more importantly, keep us reading.

****Chioma Nwosisi: One other thing I like about the book is the suspense.

****Nenkangmun Deshi: I think Danenbarger deliberately wanted to write something outside the box and he achieved this seamlessly.

****raj_nandani_poet: It becomes a complete experience of life in itself; just like Marquez’s One hundred years of solitude. It shows the complete cycle of humanity through the lives of a few characters. If not brilliant, then this sure is a bizarre masterpiece.

*****Mnyazi Dzuya: It is an awesome crime novel. It gives you the urge to find out what the next twist in the story is. The puzzle and the suspense are amazing.

****Alexandrian: John Danenbarger is definitely talented, I respect the technic involved in weaving together the different tales into this big masterpiece. While reading this book, I enjoyed trying to predict how a certain character is about to be added to the story. It’s similar to making a pizza, individually the ingredients are great, but when you add them together in the right way it becomes outstanding.

*****BookerTalk.com: The more the novel developed, the more engrossing it became. It actually became great fun trying to assemble the pieces of information and find the connections.

****khadija baig: John K. Danenbarger’s novel Entanglement Quantum and Otherwise is an engaging, yet dense work that dives into the past, present, and future of various characters, as well as how their lives are mysteriously entwined together. The reader is taken on a ride filled with unexpected revelations, mind-bending plots, and complex family relations.

****Tanvi Palekar: Danenbarger encapsulates several social issues through these characters, providing refreshing perspectives. I especially appreciate the representation he offers to the LGBT+ community through characters like Joe Tink by not giving him a stereotypically gay personality, bringing out the fact that embracing his sexuality is only a small proportion of his life.

****Elsea Chepkoech: Danenbarger manages to keep you on the edge of your seat, making you want to find out more, and every page you turn reveals something more about each character, while providing a deep and rich back story of each one of them.

*****Tushar Swami: The author has done an amazing job describing the different characters. Though the book is a work of fiction, I could visualize the various emotions of the characters. The love, suspense, agony – everything felt surreal. John has done a great work developing the complex characters. The story had a lot of twists and turns which increased my interest in the book. Each chapter created more interest in the story and I was hooked to the story until the very last. The book has an open end, which increased my excitement even more.

*****Jay Muller: I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Firstly, at the starting of the book, I would say the book had an intriguing start. This paved a way for the nice setting of the stage for the rest of the book. Secondly, I also liked the exceptional beautiful writing of this book’s characters and this makes it undeniably the best part of the book.

***Tanvi Palekar on Amazon.co.uk: The book offers a blend between science fiction and contemporary styles which focus on human psychology and emotional states, more of the latter than the former.

****Ethan Howe: The arrangement of words and phrases is skillful. The development of characters is superb.

****Kgomotso Modisane:  John K… ‘s book gets more interesting towards the end where you connect the dots and understand the contents from the beginning.

*****Rashida Stratton:  His ability to piece together characters with complex attributes that span at least 60+ years and create plot twists that will leave you in suspense at times, is one reason I could not put the book down (unless I physically had to). I was thoroughly delighted while reading it.

*****Umu Haniah: Entanglement – Quantum and Otherwise is a science fiction book that is full of puzzles and mysteries. It does not purely tell about a mathematical or scientific matter, but it also brings you to human life with its aspects such as beliefs, love, sexual orientation, hate, and assassination.

*****David Maxwel: I love most the way the writer has connected several characters, in their own stories, at the same scene which leads to reunion of Beth and Joe, perfect synchrony. All the characters are intelligently brought out. The different places are also fantastically described. I love the wide range of themes touched in this book such as science, sexuality and religion.

*****Shawna-Kay Miller: Entanglement- Quantum and Otherwise by John K. Danenbarger, is a riveting novel which depicts how persons from completely different walks of life are all somehow mysteriously connected. This novel touches on themes such as family, science, crime, murder and death.

****Angel_gaze: They love, cheat, lie, steal and kill, this is not your average family saga. There is another storyline below the surface that relates to physics and the deeper questions of life and the universe.

****Shivangi barikThis is a story of several characters, who do not seem to be connected, but in a complex twist of fate and the universe playing its games, become inseparable. When crimes, murders, and serial killers are thrown into the mix, it becomes a literary crime story that keeps the reader on the edge, guessing what will come next.

****Evi Riasari: Each person has their own circumstances that resulting their abnormal behavior. It can be seen from the quoted text from this book as follow, “You can’t even imagine the experience of the person sitting next to you who develop under different circumstances than yours, not only from birth, but also from the advancing flow of life’s evolutionary transformations on each us, which might make me closer to feeling what a nocturnal bat feels, while you, on the other hand, are carried closer to a bond with a distance human by a quantum particle.”

****Nawaal Nylstroom: The story tells a tale to how humans go through extraordinary circumstances, but somehow still makes an eventful positive life for themselves.

***Nicole Schwartz: Mr. Danenbarger’s novel is thought provoking and will inspire the reader to revisit his or her own family stories with a grain of skepticism.

****Kgomotso Modisane: John K… ‘s book gets more interesting towards the end where you connect the dots and understand the contents from the beginning, that’s what I liked about this book it gets easier to understand when you get to the ending that’s when you will rewind a bit from what occurred at the very start and smile because now you get it.

****Jackson Kimani: This is a book about connections, about slip-ups, and wrong activities, about the intricacy of being human, about the blemishes that make us interesting.

****Uday Dhall: I could not help admiring the author for building a compelling background for all individuals. Their backgrounds helped me understand what pushed the characters to do what they did. Almost all of them made mistakes. Mishaps happened; wrong person was murdered. An abusive father, an abused mother, a gay relationship or love at first sight. It all added to the intrigue. It required focused reading. The author teased my curiosity before it all fell into place.

*****Kimar Anderson: This book contains a ‘spiderweb’ of information and you have to pay keen attention to understand how the characters’ lives connect.

***Niki S.: This novel is thought provoking and will have you questioning the validity of “family stories” you may have heard passed along by your elder family members.

***Jane Afie: This story is eye-opening. Firstly, the idea of creating a story that explained a physics theory of entanglement through the art of literature is bizarre and new to me. Scientific facts that were implemented into a literary fiction with dramas and chaos are such a unique style. To be able to put into words, these scientific understanding, which turns to paragraphs and now a whole story is another skill to be having. Secondly, the way the author managed to capture my full attention by plotting the whole chapters in Part 2 of the story, still gives me pure satisfaction even if I must reread it again and again. It was articulate, clean, and stylish in his own essence.

***Q: it was a very readable story.

****Kai Conner: Throughout this gritty, crime infested storyline, Danenbarger provides vivid details through descriptive words, therefore his writing style fits the thrilling concept of the story.

*****Eliya Kisang: The flow of ideas in the book makes it stunning. The book sparks imagination and opens up unthinkable possibilities. It reiterates, in a more charming way, the differences in our society. The author has perfectly and with precision indicated the need to consider other persons point of views. The intertwining of themes and it’s creatively drafted plot makes the book one of its kind. The beauty of the universe is perfectly shown and through it, I established a unique connection with the book.

*****EmeraldRebel: It takes you on a journey of often mind-boggling and unpredictable events with an array of people whose lives are enigmatically woven together, emphasizing the impact of how individual human action knowingly or unknowingly have an effect on others. It is filled with murder, mystery, confusion, lust and vengeance and ultimately how individuals pursue their purpose or place in life, entangled with the why`s and how`s of how they become who they are….Discovering how each event and character fits into the puzzle is riveting.

****Baatseba Mosana: I would recommend the book to readers who love emotion filled non-fiction books that are very relatable; readers who are experts in reading and are familiar with varied advanced terminology, those who have the skill to figure out the content as a whole through connecting the big grammar words or to those who do not mind using a dictionary while reading.

*****Vidya Shivakumar on Amazon: Must read! This is a gritty interesting novel. It is beautifully written and has intriguing characters. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys mystery.

***scarletkite27 on Amazon: Dark and mysterious. I quite liked the random chapters that make no sense at the beginning, come together and bring meaning as the story progresses. The character development and the plot are eerie and odd. 

****Raj Nandani (Wrap The Fury) on Amazon: Complex plotline, complex characters. A complex take of world where each character somehow represents a part of humanity, the story ends up tangled with each other in the end.

****Jungmin Raphael: The author largely mirrored our societies happenings in terms of how people are finding it rough to even survive and resort to what I may term as irresponsible or unacceptable ways of making ends meet.

*****Afreen Rahim: When we fix all the pieces of the book together, it takes the readers by surprise….I gladly rate this book a 5 out of 5 due to its exciting storyline, skillful writing style, and the perfection of details throughout the book.

*A Cardel: The main focus of the story wants to be quantum theories, around which everything seems to revolve, but that is severely forgotten in many parts of the book, to the point that it does not give even a hint of how the whole quantum thing develops in the future, or where and how some characters came to some of the conclusions. Mainly, there will be many unanswered questions by the time you get to the end.

*****Asja Sabani: Entanglement – Quantum and Otherwise by John K. Danenbarger is a thriller novel with elements of magical realism, that tells the story of several characters whose lives are entangled and intertwined in the most extraordinary way….Additionally, the novel was beautifully written from a stylistic point of view and the author demonstrated a true mastery of the English language.

*****Maggie Johnson 2: This is a book that you have to pay close attention to while reading. In the beginning, it was difficult to keep track of the different characters, places, and times. However, I would not consider this to be a negative aspect of the novel. Reading this book was like piecing together a puzzle. At first, it was hard to see how everything fit together, but eventually, it became clear. In my opinion, this was part of what made the story so enjoyable.

*****Eriny Youssef:  I loved the subtlety by which he disclosed a character’s dark past and current feelings. I also loved the nuances he used to bring the quantum realm and the nonlinearity of time into the story. It fitted well within the novel without being forced or irrelevant. In my opinion, it even added a significant edge to the book.

***sayuriii:The novel capitalizes on the element of surprise and is completely unpredictable. Furthermore, the characters are dynamic which adds a layer of realism to the story. The characters feel very realistic and the writing is extremely detail-oriented. The writing style is unconventional and contains emails, written exchanges and poetry.

*****Shillah kigen:This book is not only a mystery but also an interesting crime novel. Every page in this book contains secrets that I was not ready for.

This technique adds enormous beauty to this literary masterpiece.

****nc gretel: I loved the author’s sense of humor, mode of writing and the narration of their novel was very different from any book I have ever read before. I loved how unique Entanglement – Quantum and Otherwise was as well as the plot twists you never see coming.

*****Mask Mask: Entanglement-Quantum and Otherwise by John K. Danenbarger begins with the story of Geena and then moves back in time to before Geena’s birth.

Is love blind, that it blocks all reasoning and only allows us to see what we only want to see?

It is a book about investigation, murder, and revenge, with a backdrop of scientific research, breakthrough, queer, and lowkey slavery. I like the philosophical and scientific aspects of the story….My interest got piqued when Joe Tink found Beth. You know that point in a book when you know something different will happen, but all indications point in the opposite direction. I knew Kevin was Geena’s dad from the prologue, but I thought Beth would marry Joe. The unpredictability of the interwoven lives of the many characters was something I loved about the book.

****Ola Lach:That’s the beauty of poetry. The writing doesn’t waste your time. It’s snappy and in the beginning, it takes you by the collar and doesn’t let go.

*Multibillionaire:I basically don’t want anyone to read this book … since the sexual acts herein are way more than we would expect an innocent reader to consume and not be affected by the same. The swearing is also too heavy and I can ascertain the book can make someone start swearing and even look for opposite sexes to quench the thirst created in this book.
