As the Pargiters, a middle-class London family, move from the oppressive confines of the Victorian home of the 1880s to the present day of the 1930s, they are weighed down by the pressures of war, capitalism, and Empire, and the rise of Fascism.... The Years, written in 1937, was the most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime.

Listener Opinions

    " The plot was ok. This was not one of Coben's better novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fawn Mokulis | 1/29/2014

    " I love Harlan Coben, he has a easy writing style, and if you haven't read any of his other books...you are missing out. He surprises the hell out of you, lulls you into an understanding of the plot, when suddenly...nothing is what it seems. He is an amazing suspense writer. 6 years is a Coben book, in that although not as strong as some of his other books, it still will keep you up all night. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liana | 1/28/2014

    " Great book. It's a while since a book has kept me up into the wee hours like this, as I just could not sleep until I knew how it all resolved. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hella Comat | 1/27/2014

    " Like Linwood Barclay's books, this one is a quick read because you don't want to put it down! The action is fast and furious and Coben's witty writing and smart ass comments keep you reminded that it's not the real world, just great entertainment. The main character searches for a girlfriend that he hasn't seen for six years, despite the fact that at her wedding to another man, he promised her he would leave her alone. The other man's sudden murder prompts Jake to figure out why she seems to have disappeared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 1/27/2014

    " Having stayed away from Coben books for some time this was a fast paced and intriguing story. A non government witness protection organization. Believable characters made for enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 1/23/2014

    " The last Harlan Coben book I'll pay full price for. AT $14.99, it was not worth it. I've read much more intriguing book for $1.99 by less well-known authors. If this was the first Coben book I'd read, it would be the last at any price except for free. It was not up to the Myron Bolitar series, or many of the stand-alone books he's written. It was easy to predict how it would end up. The twists and turns didn't really evolve as the story went along; they were basically all explained after the fact. Jake was obsessed with a woman he spent three months with, and this obsession cost several people their lives. He justified it all because he got what he wanted in the end. And I have to wonder, if he so easily found Natalie's mother and sister, why didn't the bad guys threaten them in order to get to her? I'd like my money back. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/21/2014

    " This was pretty engaging, but I never grew to like the narrator very much, and the ending didn't work for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Robbe | 1/9/2014

    " I always wonder whether or not Coben can write a book without the premise being someone has gone missing. But most days, I don't care, b/c he does it so well. I love the feeling you get, reading his books, where you're completely lost, but you know answers are coming; that is my favorite place to be, in a literary sense, working towards the truth. Six Years was Coben's best work in years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 1/8/2014

    " Once again, I couldn't put a Harlan Coben novel down. Easy and fast-paced! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/8/2014

    " Although this is a stand alone novel and not a Bolitar, it was engaging from the first page. Coben has created another great protagonist and the unravelling of the plot was a joy. Very fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Glow | 1/8/2014

    " The teaser on the cover noted a great plot. About 75 pages into the book the plot waffled and the rest was nothing more than a mediocre novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janai Symons | 12/27/2013

    " Another stellar book by Harlan Coben. I love the action and it was great to read him breaking out of his usual story line and get creative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ava Sones | 12/16/2013

    " Worth the wait. Ready for the next one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ainslie | 12/6/2013

    " Fast read. Grabbed me from beginning but ending was lacking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Chance | 12/6/2013

    " Excellent. Kept you interested through out. A very good book without bad language or full of sex. I recommend the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/23/2013

    " This book kept me turning pages so quickly, I didn't really even have time to figure out the mystery. I just wanted to get to the end of it to find out!! It was a fabulous read...highly recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 9/13/2013

    " Six Years was Coben's best book in a while. I could barely put it down--I read it overnight at the expense of half of my night's sleep! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 9/3/2013

    " This one was not my favorite Coben book. I thought the plot was kind of clunky. It did come together in the end but not very cohesively. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 8/16/2013

    " Loved it! While it is quite far fetched, it's a good mystery novel with a loveable main character. Moves very quickly and keeps you reading! Read it in a few hours! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Kuhtz | 8/11/2013

    " Loved it. Harlan Coben. A favorite "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/21/2013

    " This is one of Coben's best "stand alone" novels ever. A genuine difficult to put down page turner. Enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 5/25/2013

    " Don't start Six Years if you need to sleep. You will keep promising yourself that you will put it down after just one more chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Spain-Goldsmith | 4/26/2013

    " Great read! Storyline keeps you guessing until the end. Mystery and suspense "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/6/2013

    " I finished this in one day. Always a pleasure to read one of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbe' Sloan | 12/26/2012

    " A good enough read. But u know the outcome after a couple of chapters. We await the next book :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/5/2012

    " I was going to give this one star, but since I did not quit reading it...I will give it two. "
