    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The transitions between the different years was very confusing for me. There was a lot of jumping back and forth thru the years and it took a little time to realize we were in another time jump.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were very well thought out and well developed. I enjoyed how each character grew as the novel progressed.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    While the story was enjoyable, the narrator nearly bored me to death! Her voice was so monotone that if I attempted to listen before bed, I would fall asleep within minutes.


    Could you see The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Good as as book, not sure if I would like this as a movie though.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Richard Delman says: "Mr. Coben has gotten waaaay too popular."
    "Lifetime Movie converted into an Audiobook!"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Harlan Coben? Why or why not?

    This was my first Harlan Coben book so I would give him another shot. I would probably be more interested in his earlier works.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Sure. He didn't put me to sleep so that's good!


    Did Six Years inspire you to do anything?

    Yea, it inspired me to avoid romance books disguised as mysteries.

  • The Storyteller

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 13 mins)

    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Storyteller to be better than the print version?

    This is the true definition of an audiobook! I am so glad I decided to use a credit for this! The narrators really captured the essence of the characters and kept me listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heart of this story is definitively Minka's grim tale of life in the Jewish ghetto and concentration camps. I liked the contrast in her personal story and Josef's personal story of that same time period.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators brought the story to life. I think they made it more realistic. I felt as if I was in the story myself.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Forgive or forget?"
    I'm not really good at tag lines!


    Any additional comments?

    I've only read a few other Jodi Picoult books, but she holds true to form in this novel and she doesn't disappoint. I admire books that dive into history and the extensive research it must have taken to complete.
