The story would be better if the main character had less angst and stopped whining long enough to demonstrate that he was a decent human being. . Translation: he was terribly narcissistic !
The plot seemed totally contrived and unbelievable. In addition because I didn't care about the characters, I stopped trying to understand the plot. It had too many implausible twists and turns.The main character was incredibly self centered, narcissistic, and consequently unattractive. I felt like Corben was attempting to romanticize stalking.
Less angst and more humor.
Boredom, apathy, and disappointment
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.
