I may try another Coben book but not if Scott Brick is narrating;unless, Brick gets over the overdramatization and matches his tone to what is appropriate in the story!
I would not recommend this book. The story is overall is not bad and the author often nicely interjects a little humor to balance more serious scenes. The main character is a little too stupid at times. I value more background and deeper understanding of setting than this story delivers. Scott Brick detracts from the flow intended by the author as he overly dramatizes and creates incongruent sinister tone to every line.
No opinon on who. I would choose a narrator that understands and delivers the intended story. Scott Brick was capable of that in the early Clive Cussler books. My opinion is that he now is more interested in himself and his voice than he is in using his voice to relay the author's intention.
Coben has gotten lazy with his writing. I have been reading or listening to his stuff since the first Bolitar book. This was horrible, barely got throu it
Brick is an all-star
I hope this is a one time fall for Coben, guy has done some great stuff but this is a piece of ....
This book was worth the listen. It had a unique plot and I enjoyed it.
I wondered if the main character was nuts and imagined his summer love. The least interesting was the ending.
The main character.
No. It's a bit ordinary and predictable.
Yes, I usually enjoy his books more.
No. It ended where it ended.
This book felt a little like an older HC book, Tell No One. Both really enjoyable and the Scott Brick/Harlan Coben combo is always a good listen, but it's a standard HC mystery/thriller. I'm looking forward to the next Myron Bolitar book.
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.
