Publisher's Summary

Quicksand is an incisive courtroom thriller and a drama that raises questions about the nature of love, the disastrous side effects of guilt, and the function of justice.
A mass shooting has taken place at a prep school in Stockholm's wealthiest suburb. Maja Norberg is 18 years old and on trial for her involvement in the massacre where her boyfriend and best friend were killed. When the novel opens, Maja has spent nine excruciating months in jail awaiting trial. Now the time has come for her to enter the courtroom. But how did Maja, the good girl next door who was popular and excelled at school, become the most hated teenager in the country? What did Maja do? Or is it what she didn't do that brought her here?

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.

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.
