a different narrator. and less over dramatic writing.
I have read his books before. Depends upon the choices.
wanted to put more let's get on with the story--
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.
I like Coben but this book needed some serious editing. Quite repetitive and some of the plot line was obvious.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift that's why it's called the present
My first Harlan Coben book. I was not necessarily wowed by the story. I felt the character was very NEEDY almost to the point of unrealistic expectations.
Yes. Since there are so many, including my husband who feel he is great, I'm willing to try another book. Perhaps Six Years was not his best.
The story could have a more interesting turn in the end.
This one didn't hold my interest as much as other Coben books. Scott Brick's narration was also a bit of a snooze fest, but maybe it is because he didn't have much to work with. Might be worth a listen if you're a fan, but it didn't have me on the edge of my seat, which was disappointing.
The pacing is rather odd... it starts to pick up pace and then slow down again at strange times.
Well, that was anticlimactic.
Scott Brick does a good job of giving the main character some personality.
Not really, no.
The idea that obsession can be equated to love and ultimately result in a lasting relationship.
I'm usually a big fan of Harlan Coben's work. He is a masterful writer, one who is adept at setting up the situation and taking readers further and further into the mystery. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case with Six Years. Jake Fisher was a completely unsympathetic character almost from the beginning. Everything he did was about him and only him, with no thought as to what his actions might mean for someone else. He came across as self-centered, arrogant, egotistical, and almost narcissistic in his pursuit of "the love of his life". This isn't a man who's in love, this is a man obsessed. A man who is stalking someone who has asked him to leave her alone. A man who ignores the advice of even his best friend so that he can pursue a woman who made it clear that she wanted nothing more to do with him (regardless of the reason). Throughout the story Jake indicates that he knows that he should give up but he just can't. This isn't a hero moving heaven and earth to find the love he lost. This is a man in need of psychiatric intervention before he gets someone killed.
Scott Brick does his best to make Jake a sympathetic character. Unfortunately, even his skills leave Jake as what he is: disturbed and almost psychotically obsessed with a woman who told him to forget about her.
This story is (finally!) not another Mylan Bolitar run on sentence, but stands alone in its characters and theme. Jake Fisher is a man pining for a love lost six years prior, but he has kept his promise to leave Natalie and her new husband alone. When Jake comes across the obituary of the husband, he is compelled to contact Natalie and find out why the relationship he valued came to an abrupt end.
An intriguing thriller and heartfelt story of longing and dedication, you won't be disappointed by this book!
