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.

    "Not so good"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Couldn't wait to download latest Harlan Coben... Now wished I hadn't acted so quickly. Boring, dragging and nearly ridiculous.


    Has Six Years turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance was too dramatic for a far-fetched storyline.

    "Good one for the heartbroken"

    One thing that is important about character construction is creating a character that you can relate with, and that is not quite the case with Pr. Fisher, the idea of man who cannot get over a girl for six years kept nagging me the whole story. He can sometimes become way too much melancholic to my taste, ans sometimes I could understand some decisons that made some situations much worst.

    I must say that the main plot is interesting enough if not somewhat cliche in some parts.

    The narrative is quite good and the author has a good flow. He can make the action scenes quite plausible for the situations and some quite remarkable characters, specially the supporting ones, but sometimes he could invest more in personality.

    The narrator in competent and knows his business, he could just give little bit mote life to some characters.

    "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.

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

    His preformance, truly brought some realism to the events

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

    Addicting, excellent and unpredictable! The characters and story are very well developed and continuously intriguing!

    "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

    "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.
