    Re: difference between embroiled and involved

    They're quite close in meaning, but 'embroiled' conveys the idea that the involving thing is unnecessarily complicated. "Embroiled in" (something complex), "ensnared in" (something with hidden danger), "immersed in" (something intellectually stimulating, like a book)... They all convey a similar meaning of involvement, but have different overtones about the 'involving thing'.
