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.

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.

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.

Over the top

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

Should be listed as smaltzy romance!

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

Hawgjohn

This book is dreadful! Hard to believe that Harlan Coben could have turned out such drivel. Or that the publisher would except this manuscript for publication. Like one of the previous commentators, I soldiered on only for the opportunity to write this brief note. Harlan Coben would now qualify as 25th runner-up in the James Patterson look-alike contest. All he has to do is declare in the name of the person who ghosted this bookfor him.

Confusing

Overall I liked the ending of the story but it was quite confusing at some points. It had a few twists here and there though and overall it wasn't half bad. The performer definitely sounds like the guy from Dexter though.
