Publisher's Summary

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. Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for almost two decades, and with that fact, everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life - a time he has never gotten over - is turned completely inside out.

As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can’t be found or don’t remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart, who lied to him, soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on a carefully constructed fiction.

Harlan Coben once again delivers a shocking novel that deftly explores the power of past love and the secrets and lies that such love can hide.

    "Disappointing"
    What would have made Six Years better?

    I have been a Harlan Coben fan for many years but this book doesn't measure up. The story is a stretch and the tone "soapy".


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harlan Coben again?

    Yes.


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did but there were too many characters with only minor roles so at times I was confused.

    "boring, overacted and predictable"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The performance was over acted, the plot wasn't bad but it was over written. Many parts were repeated unnecessarily.

    "riviting"
    Would you listen to Six Years again? Why?

    Yes, I really couldn't put it down and it kept me guessing and coming back for more.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes, there were constant twists and turns, things to leave you hanging and questioning


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

    His preformance, truly brought some realism to the events


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When his best friend didn't shoot him despite his oath.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is really worth using a credit on or buying. In my oppinion.

    If you could sum up Six Years in three words, what would they be?

    Story
    "Not a great book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is packed with interesting twist and turns. The main character, a college professor acts more like a love sick teenager. Technically the book is well written but I feel the character development lacks a great deal. It is a romance novel, short and simple. I did not expect that. I think younger and more romantic inclined readers might enjoy this book more than I did.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    The lead character acted like a love sick teenager.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Don't know.


    What character would you cut from Six Years?

    Don't know


    Any additional comments?

    None

    Story
    "Not his best work."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book one way or the other.


    If you’ve listened to books by Harlan Coben before, how does this one compare?

    I have either listened to all of Harlan Coben's books. Until this one I loved them all. This one really dragged.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick's performance was excellent as always.


    Do you think Six Years needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think the ending was complete and does not need another book added to it.


    Any additional comments?

    The book just seemed to drag on and on and on. The story line was good but there wasn't enough suspense to hold my interest.

    Story
    "Barely made it to part 2"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Really terrible. The narrator is awful, story line super slow. Don't waste a credit or you time.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    Slowness of pace.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better plot, having the main character be a hero. Faster pace.


    Could you see Six Years being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Hope not.


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "Over Dramatic and Sappy"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    The story was very convoluted and far fetched, it seemed to drag on and on about the main character broken heart.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    The ending was so predictable.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick performance was amazing as always.


    What character would you cut from Six Years?

    The best friend, it was just to coincidental and unbelievable that he was involved in the same organization.

    Story
    "The WORST effort from Coben.. EVER."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one with a brain.


    What could Harlan Coben have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There is nothing to recommend about this dreck. The 'hero' is a mentally unbalanced, obsessive delving into something that is none of his business. The plot is contrived, the story is annoyingly stupid and the way this loser Fisher is portrayed is embarrassing. I stopped listening after about 10 chapters. I couldn't take it anymore. What Harlan Coben could have done was never publish this farce. I have loved everything else Coben has written, but had this been my first exposure to Coben, it would certainly have been my last.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    I generally like Scott Brick, but here he portrays his character as a sniveling, obsessed idiot. The whiny quality with which Scott read this character was grating, and part of why I stopped listening. Scott did a fantastic job on 'Still Life With Crows' to hear him do THIS crap... well, in my opinion, it was not a good career move.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nope. None that I can think of.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get a refund?
