Can't believe I stuck with this whole story. It was not particularly exciting but it was well narrated and that's probably what kept my attention. No huge surprises so be prepared to coast along till the end.

Good at times, but not Amazing
Would you listen to Quicksand again? Why?
I'm drawn to school shooting fiction and was really excited about this book. It started slow but picked, but there were some areas where there was backtracking. I would not listen to it again because it was really long and was repetitive in some areas.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Maybe a change or perspective, or at a faster pace.
Have you listened to any of Saskia Maarleveld’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, the narrator was really good though.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, but it was enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
It was a good book, kept my interest, but did not blow my mind.
