Six Years | [Harlan Coben]

Six Years

Six years have passed since Jake Sanders 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.

Publisher's Summary

Six years have passed since Jake Sanders 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 more than a decade, 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 - and 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 carefully constructed fiction.

Kerry Shale’s stage credits include His Girl Friday (National Theatre) and Frost/Nixon (West End). TV credits include Dr Who and Life’s Too Short. Recent films include A Fantastic Fear of Everything. He has won three Sony Radio Awards, the APA Award for Best Male Audio Book Reader (UK) and the Audie Award for Best Male Audio Book Reader (USA). His audio books include two winners of the Man Booker Prize, Life of Pi and The White Tiger.

    "Classic Coben"

    Excellent thriller away from the Bolitar series which are also great but slightly more predictable. Like most of his one off's, 6 years is a great mystery that slowly unfolds chapter by chapter. Unputdownble

    "Holiday Listen!"


    Enjoyed this, and it was about the right length as I wouldn't have wanted it to go on for too much longer, its got a good pace the only thing I didn't like is that it reminded me of Tell No One in places.

    Good listen for a commute or a holiday!

    "Gripping. Vintage Coben"

    I listened to the whole book in just a couple of days. It is another page-turner. Some of the themes and plot lines will be familiar to Coben fans .... but apart from that small criticism there are great characters, and some comic moments to alleviate the well judged tension. Kerry Shale's reading is masterly.

    "A gripping read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend as it exciting and engaging with lots of twists and turns along the way.


    What other book might you compare Six Years to, and why?

    I'm a fan of Harlan Coben, this doesn't fail to impress like his other mystery thrillers.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The ending is just fantastic!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't think that I've ever gotten through an audiobook so fast.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm keen to download Coben's other books that I've not yet read.

    "I hated this book!!"

    "Really enjoyed it - couldn't stop listening!"
    Would you listen to Six Years again? Why?

    I wouldn't listen to it again as I now know the plot and ending!


    What other book might you compare Six Years to, and why?

    It is a keep you guessing type of story. You think you have guessed right then there is a twist.


    Have you listened to any of Kerry Shale’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, I have never listened to him before. I liked his voice, the only thing that did put me off a little bit was when he played the teenager and a female.


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

    Not particularly moved me but felt sorry for the main character at times.

    "The tale gets ever more complicated....really good"

    when it started I thought it would be over and not interesting but it grew with each chapter. The story is good and keeps you on your toes. Well worth reading

    "This should probably be a 4 but ..."

    I've always found the descriptions of Harlan Coben books to be a bit like the pictures of KFC's food, much more appetising than the reality. However, this one really works: The main character isn't too annoying (though he is a little sanctimonious), the bits that are meant to be funny actually are, and it is an easy-to-read, well paced novel with an exciting plot. As I say in the headline, it should probably be a 4 but I'm just pleased that the picture was more like the meal on this particular occasion.

    "Will give you a golden glow at the end"
    What did you like most about Six Years?

    The fact that it was more like his early books which was when I fell in love with his writing and couldn't wait for each new book to be published. Then it all started to go a bit downhill with the most stupid,ridiculous plots and I decided not to bother with any more of his books. However I read the write ups on this and decided to give him another go and I'm very glad I did. It had a bit of everything really , comedy,intrigue,excitement and romance, although I did find the romance a bit unbelievable and a bit hard to swallow


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't have a favourite one, they all gelled along


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably the ending


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

    I felt the ending was quite satisfying
