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.

    "Suspenseful twists!"

    This book was a little bit slow in the beginning. I really struggled with the narrators mundane and mopey tone of voice. Prof. Fishers attitude of "losing the love of my life" and "my life is meaningless " was starting to wear on me. Then the story started to pick up and took a few surprising turns. The plot twisting was great and I liked the mistery. Overall I enjoyed the book. I would read another in the series.

    "OH!MY!GOD!"

    I usually don't have a problem listening to Scott Brick but this performance was overwrought and truly cringeworthy. I have no idea what he was trying to accomplish with this narration. It was over the top and sooooo slowly paced. Dial it back Mr. Brick!

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    "Love Besotted Professor Acts Stupid"

    Jake Fisher, is the dumbest man in mysteries. Odd, since we're to believe he's a tenured (?) PhD professor in a New England College that's at least as prestigious as Williams. Oh, and he's surrounded by equally idiotic decision makers.

    Have you seen the TV ad where kids escaping a horror villain hide behind the power saws? Yeah? Well their decision making is light years ahead of those which Jake Fisher keeps repeating throughout this perplexing plot. Was this early Coben? The authorusually stops short of asking readers to accept that a guy with all of these "smart-credentials" can be dumber than a drunk monkey.

    You know the way a magician tries to distract with his left hand so you won't notice what his right's up to? Well maybe the frazzle headed oafishness of Jake Fisher was meant to distract me into ignoring the torrent of coincidences Coben demanded I accept to make the plot sensible. No way that could happen.

    Scott Brick gives a less-than-over-the-top reading this time which makes it one of his best that I've heard.

    Can't recommend Six Years, hope it hasn't turned me off on Coben.

    Story
    "Expected More"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The suspense was lacking and the story was easy to figure out. My biggest gripe was that the main character was supposed to be 35, but the narrator sounded much older than that. It was distracting.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Causal Vacancy


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    It depends on the story line and if the main character is age appropriate for his distinguished voice.

    "Thumbs up -if this is your first Harlan Coben book"

    But if you've read other stories by this author, then this plot will be waaaaaay too familiar.

    Story
    "Wrong narrator for this book"
    What did you like best about Six Years? What did you like least?

    The story was ok, although it seemed to drag on in spots but maybe it was the horrible narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The man was reading this story as if it was Shakespeare or poetry; in whispered dramatic almost British accent. Harlen Coben is humorous and this narrator could not pull off the humor because he was trying to be too dramatic. We almost could not continue after we began the story because we could not stand his tone/voice. He didn't have a terrible voice, it just did not match the tone of Coben. He seemed to make the parts that were draggy even worse. I can't even finish the book. It wasn't just me either - there were three of us listening in a car on a road trip and finally we had enough and had to cut it off.

    Not the best - not the worst, just okay. The end of the story was odd.

    Story
    "Exciting, fast paced,."
    What made the experience of listening to Six Years the most enjoyable?

    Jake Fisher's fight and flight scenes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake Fisher because he was tough and smart. But a bit too obsessed with Natalie.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have a different reader. I find Scott Brick too slow and dramatic. I had to listen to the book at 1.25 or 1.5 speed most of the time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The fight scenes were very exciting.


    Any additional comments?

    It seemed like the author had to add a lot of unnecessary detail to make the story book length.
