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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "DUMB!"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    The main character of this book is way too dumb to be a college professor - come on, give me a break!! Hated this book and stopped listening several times. Finally quit for good before it was over. Kept thinking it would get better and it never did - UGH!! Bitter disappointment from Harlan Coben - read others of his I really liked.


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

    Not really - perhaps the mystery was catching - I would like to know what happened to Natalie! But no way am I subjecting myself to the continuing stupidity of the main character!


    Any additional comments?

    Doesn't merit being in your inventory - I'm shocked it was published!

    "Don't know if it was the story or the narration"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    Scott Brick has the whiny, urgent, at-the-end-of-my-rope voice down pat. It perfectly fit this overly long and unbelievable story. By the end of the book I was thoroughly sick of Jake, and hoped that when he found Natalie she'd permanently put him out of his misery. Meh...


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

    David Colacci

    Story
    "so bad its irritating"
    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or Scott Brick?

    I bought this book with a buy one get one free sale of and am sorry I picked this one. I have listened to over 30 audible books and this is the first disappointment. The writing is poorly developed and sophomoric. The story is written entirely in the first person with the protagonist uttering every single mundane thought that enters his mind. I thought I was going to pull my hair out if I heard the narrator say "What to do?" one more time or the answer "I don't know" an equal number of times. The narrator made matters worse by beyond tedious with a sing songy tempo punctuated with overtly dramatic exclamations. It was like he was trying to puff up drama or tension through his voice because the writing boring and flat. The grating performance just makes a bad book even worse. I could not finish it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harlan Coben again?

    no


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

    never


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation


    Any additional comments?

    live and learn . . . on to the next one!

    "Maybe I didn't get it..."

    This felt a little overly dramatic. The narrator was great, but it felt a little too complicated for a love story.
