Six Years by Harlan Coben

Like all of Coben’s books that I’ve read, this deals with middle class suburban people who are not what they seem and have a past which catches up with them.

I really liked the first half of the book; there was plenty of intrigue which kept me speculating what was going on and consequently I was quickly hooked. However I was increasingly disappointed in the second half of the book as answers to the mystery were provided; there was just something unsatisfactory about them. I did find the dialogue clich├ęd and Jake’s frequent proclamations of his love for Natalie rather cheesy. The characters didn’t seem very real to me, especially Jake who just didn’t feel like a college professor. 3 stars.
