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.

    "Let it go, let it go......."

    Have you ever had a main character that just grated on your nerves? It took me so long to finish this book because Jake just got on my nerves. I kept putting it down because I wanted to slap him up side the head. The plot for the story was intriguing. The other characters were engrossing. Man falls in love, woman dumps him and weds another. He reads in a campus newsletter , six years later, her "husband" has dead. He decides to go to funeral, discovers "she" is not the widow, so he begins a search to find her. People start dying and he's soon running for his life. He's told to let it go, drop it. But oh no, Jake can't let go and the bodies start piling up. Overall this was a great story but Jake just grated on my nerves. I think he irked me because of the way Scott Brick ( the narrator ) portrayed him. I love Mr. Bricks' narrations but this one of Jake just pissed me off.

    "It seemed like Six Years"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Scott Brick does a great job narrating and the story starts out interesting,The problem begins midway through the book with a far fetched plot that wanders and becomes tedious. I have listened to other Harlan Coben books in the past and really liked the style but I can not recommend this one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something from George McDonald Fraser


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure there was a favorite


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

    The plot concept was good but it was a hell of a long way around the barn with unbelievable, long drawn out circumstances to get to the end.

    "Not predictable at all..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It held my interest, and I figured it out at the end, but really just minutes before it was all revealed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the best friend Benedict. He was so well written that I could see him in my mind's eye. And the narrator did a great voice for him too.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Benedict.


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

    When the main character was getting beat up by Jed. I could feel his fear - I was even holding my breath.


    Any additional comments?

    The only flaw was the fact that this supposedly educated professor was sure stupid sometimes. And then there were lines of the story that just sort of vanished...like he was trying to keep a low profile, and he was using cash, etc...yet the cops and FBI knew where he was, and they weren't after him at all. It was sort of jumbled.

    "Interesting idea, poorly realized"

    I was intrigued for about the first third of this audiobook, then the ridiculously gushy emotional content and unbelievable actions and reactions by the protagonist lost me.

    "a bit too far fetched for me"

    not my favorite reader... a rather forced style.. but it mostly kept my interest... some plot twists were fairly obvious and I got impatient waiting for the hero to catch up

    "Boo!"
    What did you like best about Six Years? What did you like least?

    I'd say that I liked the ending the best, the story kind of dragged along and repeated itself. The story was a bit crazy and was confusing because there was so much going on at the same time.


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

    I have not, I'd say he is a great performer and made the story a little easier to finish.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If it explained things a little better I would, Like I had mentioned previously it was all over the place.

    "Six Years"
    Any additional comments?

    Narrated by Scott Brick, just over 10.5 hours of listening. Love Scott Brick … but, he’s a little over-dramatic in some areas of this story. But, it’s a dramatic story … so you be the judge.

    Six Years is the tale of vigilante-type witness protection, an interesting premise. A guy misses the boat with his true love as she marries someone else and little does he know she is doing this to protect him. Six Years later, he learns that the man she married is now dead and he starts the ball rolling to re-connect. Thus is the thrust of the story.

    A hair-raising thrill ride, and like I indicated above … in my opinion Six Years is a little overly dramatic in places. This may not be the case in the written book, so you may find it’s just right! A good mystery story.

    Enjoy!

    "The Most Intriguing Mystery from Start to Finish"

    This book grabs you from the very start and doesn't let go until the very end. There are almost too many twists and turns to keep track, which I love. I usually only listen to books in the car, but I listened to this one at home, at work and while I walked the dogs, too. I wanted to see where it was going. The narrator is great but tends to read dramatically at all times, which somewhat lessens the true dramatic moments. In any case, it still delivers and is very worth the listen.

    "Solid Performance with Complicated Plot"

    Author presents interesting twisted plot, but allows main character to turn introspective too long. This is my first Coben novel, but I'm intrigued enough to listen to a second. I did try his young adult mystery but it didn't appeal to me. There is a flavor and sense of the mystery Rule of Four to this work. Stay Safe is in my library.

    "Annoying narrator"

    The story could have been better but it was the reader's voice that really got on my nerves. I just didn't care by the end .
