Yes. It held my interest, and I figured it out at the end, but really just minutes before it was all revealed.
I liked the best friend Benedict. He was so well written that I could see him in my mind's eye. And the narrator did a great voice for him too.
When the main character was getting beat up by Jed. I could feel his fear - I was even holding my breath.
The only flaw was the fact that this supposedly educated professor was sure stupid sometimes. And then there were lines of the story that just sort of vanished...like he was trying to keep a low profile, and he was using cash, etc...yet the cops and FBI knew where he was, and they weren't after him at all. It was sort of jumbled.
I was intrigued for about the first third of this audiobook, then the ridiculously gushy emotional content and unbelievable actions and reactions by the protagonist lost me.
This was a silly book. It was overly dramatic, and this wasn't helped by Scott Brick reading as if this was the next coming of THE literary novel of the century. It was just tiresome to get through. The premise was totally unbelievable and the protagonist was way too thick. I would not waste my time or a credit.
not my favorite reader... a rather forced style.. but it mostly kept my interest... some plot twists were fairly obvious and I got impatient waiting for the hero to catch up
I'd say that I liked the ending the best, the story kind of dragged along and repeated itself. The story was a bit crazy and was confusing because there was so much going on at the same time.
I have not, I'd say he is a great performer and made the story a little easier to finish.
If it explained things a little better I would, Like I had mentioned previously it was all over the place.
Narrated by Scott Brick, just over 10.5 hours of listening. Love Scott Brick … but, he’s a little over-dramatic in some areas of this story. But, it’s a dramatic story … so you be the judge.
Six Years is the tale of vigilante-type witness protection, an interesting premise. A guy misses the boat with his true love as she marries someone else and little does he know she is doing this to protect him. Six Years later, he learns that the man she married is now dead and he starts the ball rolling to re-connect. Thus is the thrust of the story.
A hair-raising thrill ride, and like I indicated above … in my opinion Six Years is a little overly dramatic in places. This may not be the case in the written book, so you may find it’s just right! A good mystery story.
This book grabs you from the very start and doesn't let go until the very end. There are almost too many twists and turns to keep track, which I love. I usually only listen to books in the car, but I listened to this one at home, at work and while I walked the dogs, too. I wanted to see where it was going. The narrator is great but tends to read dramatically at all times, which somewhat lessens the true dramatic moments. In any case, it still delivers and is very worth the listen.

Author presents interesting twisted plot, but allows main character to turn introspective too long. This is my first Coben novel, but I'm intrigued enough to listen to a second. I did try his young adult mystery but it didn't appeal to me. There is a flavor and sense of the mystery Rule of Four to this work. Stay Safe is in my library.
The story could have been better but it was the reader's voice that really got on my nerves. I just didn't care by the end .
