Review of 'Quicksand' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Honestly? I hated Helga. She was entitled, ungrateful, and flakey. She couldn't commit to anything, even her own desires. Maybe I'm too far removed from the themes this novel tried to explore, but I didn't really see how the main character was valuable to anyone..
