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.

Kept me guessing at every chapter

I absolutely love this book. Every time I thought I had it clear in my mind about why Natalie left. I was wrong. I absolutely enjoyed the ride of this book :-) I would be definitely reading more from this Author

Good story, bad narration.

Would you listen to Six Years again? Why?

No. I had a difficult time listening to this book because of the overly dramatic narration of Scott Brick. I returned another Harlan Coben for that reason.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Six Years?

The ending.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He narrated like he was on the Broadway stage--overly dramatic.

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

no

Any additional comments?

I love Harlan Coben, and if Scott Brick is the narrator, I will read the book instead of listening to it.

Overly dramatic

Thought it was a little over the top in the narration for my taste. Seemed like he was going to cry on every sentence.
Story was full of different key characters and sudden plot twists so pay close attention to details and names. I lost track several times.

Harben at his best

Not Myron Bolitar, but great new hero with....almost the same humor. Superb story you will never get til the end. Great narration by Brick.

meh

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The plot was rather obvious and the main character was relentlessly mentioning how wonderful his lost love was. Give it a rest, already. By the end of the book, I was so annoyed with the lame plot and the main character's obsession with Natalie, I was just counting the minutes until the book was over.

What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

After seeing how popular the author was, I gave him a try with this book. Based on this book, I don't see what everyone is raving about. Very dissappointed.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the book was finally over.

story is good, narration too dramatic.

I enjoyed the story, although it was difficult to follow from time to time. The characters were well developed for the most part and I sympathized with Jake, the hero of the story. The narration, however, was so "over the top". Intro level school of acting bad. Scott Brick needs to understand the understated. Not every bit of dialogue deserves all this emoting!! I found myself rolling my eyes way too often. To give him some credit...he has a sensational voice.

Good until the end

Any additional comments?

Not sure if my version skipped a section, but the ending was very abrupt and came out of no where. The book was entertaining and kept me listing, but not one of his best.

Melodrama!

A melodramatic story with an over-the-top melodramatic reading. Every character is a stereotype. I don't plan to try another Harlan Coben book.

Another mind blower from Coben!

Full of twists and turns, suspenseful and jaw dropping. Great story line , action and drama.
