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.

    "Story good but narrator irritating"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    The story was good and interesting but the narrator was not. I was not able to concentrate on the story due to his performance.


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

    It was interesting and I put up with the narrator to get to the end.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator could have been different. Or, instructed to perform differently.


    What character would you cut from Six Years?

    None

    Mom of 3 essentially grown kids that are friend more than kids now. I am finding time to rediscover past pre-parent passions such as pediatric ER nursing, quilting and road biking...my house is cleaner and more organized than ever because I can listen to a book and accomplish life mundane/routine life necessities!

    "Time and Money Better Spent!"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    As a Harlan Coben fan, I found the book to be a great disappointment. The storyline is slow and tedious, the main character boring and ending predictable and saccharine. I actually had to force myself to finish listening this book which is extemely rare for me. I found the overall story to be depressing and it took a few days to shake my malaise. It is good for authors to branch out but Harlan needs to bark up a different tree.


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

    I will approach his next work with trepidation and wait for reviews and feedback before purchasing.

    "Interesting story but TERRIBLE narrator"
    What did you love best about Six Years?

    Kept you guessing.. different story than the usual mystery


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot was interesting and a well written story


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Words fail me.... I cant tell you how grating his voice was... I actually feel bad insulting someone but it cant be helped. All I can say is.. dramatic.. breathy voice... over acted... just did not fit the character or the words he was reading. Just beyond annoying.. the story was worth overlooking the voice but it was very difficult.


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

    No... its not really emotional or a tear jerked...


    Any additional comments?

    Great read.. enjoyable and even a little surprising.. hard to surprise me since I read 3 or 4 books a month

    "Edge of your seat thriller"

    One of the best thrillers I've heard. Coben kept me intrigued throughout the entire story. This is one of the few thrillers I've read that I couldn't figure out how the story would end. Scott Brick did a wonderful job of narrating this book. I would recommend this to anyone who likes thrillers!

    "Good!"

    I'm a big fan of Harlen Coben & this one kept my attention with lots of twists and turns. I guess some people didn't like the "love story" aspect but it didn't bother me. I'm a romantic & want someone willing to do anything for me! LOL I spent more time working in the yard, just so I could keep listenting. It was worth the credit for me with a strong story line & narration. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading the book as much as listening - I really like Scott Brick as narrator.

    "Entertaining and well performed but drawn out"
    What made the experience of listening to Six Years the most enjoyable?

    Scott brick is always amazing, although he seems to do very well with sarcastic characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots and lots of clever twists and turns, but they get tedious after a while.


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

    He becomes the narrator in the story as written by Coben.


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

    I loved it until the last 1/3. It had good character development and I liked the characters. The last 1/3 I had to listen to with lots of breaks.

    Story
    "Write-by-numbers story with melodramatic narration"
    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or Scott Brick?

    I have been a fan of Harlan Coben for years and look forward to Scott Brick's narration. But this was the worst of both I've experienced.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was not particularly interesting at all. I can honestly say that there was not a single surprise in the story. Everything was clearly telegraphed and easily guessed. This story does not come close to the typical thrill ride of a Coben story. And the hackneyed slang and conversational stopgaps were not worthy of him. I hope I never hear the phrase "the mind goes where it will" again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    So many ways. I don't expect Scott Brick to give all the characters different voices. But the exact same phrasing, intonations, and inflections for each and every one is dreary. And the story did not need his added melodrama. It was over-the-top on its own.


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

    Oh God, please no.

    "Performance is too dramatic. It almost gags me."
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    Everything. It's hard to pay attention to the story because the reader is too annoying. I don't think I will be able to finish. Too whiny.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harlan Coben again?

    Don't know. Stay Close was okay


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

    Michael McConnohie or Dick Hill, someone with a less whiny voice
