Who are you and what have you done with Harlan Coben? Yikes! This was a romance masquerading as a mystery. Could have been written by James Patterson - with naked abs on the cover. Mushy goo - and the melodramatic narrator didn't help.
Exciting, and different turns the whole way. Just when you think you figured it out, it makes a U turn. His best writing so far. I listened to it twice in a row!
The scene with Otto and Bob in the van.
Determined to find out the truth!
I enjoyed this so much, that I can not wait to see what the next Coben brings.
Manipulative writing with far too many trite phrases. One dimensional characters. None of the cracking humor of earlier books. And Scott Brick, while not as annoyingly melodramatic sounding as usual, is still an annoying narrator.
I LOVE to read!! I prefer mysteries but I dabble in every genre!!
I would just say it was time spent. This was neither a bad story nor a good one. The beginning was strong but the end was weak. I literally cringed at some points in the story because it was so absurd. But if you love Lifetime, you'll probably love this book!
This was my first Harlan Coben book so I would give him another shot. I would probably be more interested in his earlier works.
Sure. He didn't put me to sleep so that's good!
Yea, it inspired me to avoid romance books disguised as mysteries.
It ranks in the top 30% or so.
I liked the protagonist who was searching for his wife.
I always enjoy Scott Brick's performances. It's hard to compare, because I think they are all 4-5 star performances.
I prefer the single books of Coben's more than the Mickey Bolitar series, and this one was not a disappointment.
I like Coben but this book needed some serious editing. Quite repetitive and some of the plot line was obvious.
Coben's "Six Years" is an irresistible journey. The twists and turns of the novel take you to the height of curiosity, so much you cannot even hit the pause button. While it is not classic literature, or even a classic in its genre, it fits so well to the mystery archetype the shallowness of the underlying plot is never even noticed. The character development is excellent, and relating to them is easy. The narration is apt for this type of fiction, not over delivered as is sometimes the case. Definitely worth a listen, just make sure to juice up your iPod before hitting the play button.
I do not know if this was a good book as after about an hour I could not listen any longer and deleted it.
Yes indeed. Because he will like it.
It did because it was well written and a very good story.
Almost anything else. The "hero" is a self-absorbed twit who sounds like a 13-year old with a first crush. He is a stalker, going so far as to stalk his object to her (supposed) husband's funeral. The story is so convoluted and stupid, it hurts. And the narration - If Scott Brick gets any sadder, he'll die, I'm sure of it., or I will of sheer boredom.
The main character and the reader...and the fact that I wasted money on it. On a different note, I hated the fact that "Jake" must have had 3 or 4 concussions, yet never needed treatment, had no effects from TBI, just continued on because he's so tough. What a crock.
He is sooooo slow and soooo serious and every word is sooooo heavy with importance. Very distracting.
...most of them. This book didn't need to have been written, it adds nothing to my library anyway. Wish I could have a refund
Skip it, don't buy it, don't waste a credit. The Myron Bolitar/Mickey Bolitar reads are much better if you need to read this author.
