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.

    "Underwhelming"

    The narrator makes the main character sound like a creepy whiny stalker the whole time, so I couldn't believe that the girl would actually be in love with him. The plot line was predictable, and left me underwhelmed. Jake made stupid choices and took a very long time to come to conclusions when in most of the situations, if wasn't stupid, he'd have gotten answers right away. I wouldn't recommend this if you tend to figure things out in mysteries on your own before it's revealed at the end.

    "Not good"

    Not crafted to the standard I normally expect from Harlan Coben. Too many holes in the plot - the whole thing just became more and more unlikely. In the end I couldn't care less what happened to whom - I just wanted it to stop.

    "Good story"

    Not a fan of this narrator, a bit overly dramatic, but a good story although I occasionally got lost in the number of characters.

    Story
    "Coben must have been paid by the word on this one."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really. This story line was weakened by the reader and the extra/ repeated dialog.


    If you’ve listened to books by Harlan Coben before, how does this one compare?

    I like it the least


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

    I would, but only to see if he sounds that love sick in other written works. At times I found myself saying, " OMG, Git over it and move on!" His character was such a wimp.


    Could you see Six Years being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to hear how it would end, but never thought it would. There seemed to be so much extra stuff that really had no supportive reason

    "Snooz fest"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea... I tried to power through, it was just so.....?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harlan Coben again?

    I have listened to his books before. This book was just so rambling and disconnected.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked his voice and tenor, he just didn't have much plot to work with.

    "Corny tedious book made worse by the narrator"
    What disappointed you about Six Years?

    Ugh! I am 5 hours in and I can't take it anymore!!!!! The book is busy making a story out of nothing and the narrator is ridiculously over-dramatic. I was in the car this morning and I said "that's it!" I've never given up this far into a book but I had to. First Harlan Coben and last for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Find Her, by Lisa Gardner


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Six Years?

    There was so much silly commentary from the author throughout and honestly, every situation could have been cut shorter.

    Meh. Just okay. Over the top narration and a mediocre story line. Won't read this author again.

    I do my gardening listening to Audible books and, at times, end up sitting on my gardening cart sobbing away, while hoping no one's looking

    "Should be listed as smaltzy romance!"

    Love Scott Brick but he even sounded tired of professing undying love! Expected more of Harlan Coben.
