Daisy Jones & The Six
Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid
A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of a world-famous 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer--and the secret reasons behind their dramatic break up. Daisy Jones is a beautiful, broken girl growing up in L.A. with rich parents who barely know she exists. . . . But when she sings in a crowded, smoky club, you can hear a pin drop. All she wants is to write her own songs, but the record studio has its own ideas. It's the early 1970s and free love and drugs are everywhere, and Daisy wants to experience it all. Billy Dunne and his brother have a band called The Six that won't be playing weddings for long. They are ambitious, hard-rocking, hard-partying. When they land a record deal, Billy's girlfriend follows them to the west coast and life begins. But she finds out she's pregnant on the eve of their first tour, and the pressure of fatherhood and incipient fame make Billy go a little crazy on the road. Daisy and Billy's paths cross when a manager realizes that the key to skyrocketing success is to put them together. But oil and water don't even begin to describe how they mix. . . . And what happens next will become the stuff of legend. Written in the style of an "as-told-to" rock autobiography, Daisy Jones & The Six is an unforgettable ride.

I appreciate Taylor‘s ability to take big risks with her plot lines and the way she chooses to tell her stories. I also appreciate her ability to write flawed, multidimensional characters. This book had some AMAZING females- Karen, Camila, DAISY. ❤️ I enjoyed the tv adaption also, though I didn‘t approve of some of the changes they decided to make. It was still a beautiful story and I cried on the last episode. 4/5

I enjoyed reading this book!!! The band made me think of Fleetwood Mac. I loved the characters a lot. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

This was okay? The audiobook improved it due to the great cast performances, but I found the plot rather predictable. Maybe it suffered from all the hype, idk, but I‘m kinda regretting picking up another book by TJR before I finished this one, because I probably wouldn‘t have done so.

#TLT Three-List-Thursday @dabbe

I was in high school in the late 70s.
1. You ALWAYS wore Levi's, especially corduroy jeans.
2. Oxford button down shirts with a sweater (jumper for you UK folks) that you draped over your back and tied around your neck.
3. Polyester
4. Izod polo shirts.
5. Padded shoulders. The bigger, the better!
6. Big hair was popular especially when disco came along.
7. Before big hair, it was all about the Farrah...

TheSpineView ...Fawcett hair either the wings on the side. For the guys it was the Andy Gibb look or nothing. 8. In the summer, girls wore daisy dukes. If your parents would let you. 9. Leisure Suits. More of an adult trend but teenage guys would wear them to church. 10. Mood rings. I had several. 2mo
Susanita The Farrah hair! And the boys had the poster. 😲 2mo
dabbe Oh, man, the nostalgia! Levi 501s. Had to have the little alligator on those polo shirts; knock-offs were not acceptable! My mood ring never changed color; it always stayed a dark blackish color. Maybe that was my surly mood as a teenager? 😂 2mo
bthegood omg - yes Farrah hair! 🙂 2mo

I tried to like this book, but it was just ok for me. The one thing I did love was the format the book was written in. The way it was written, interview style, and to have it flow so well was great. It was the content that was just ok for me. Just a lot of talk about sex, drugs and rock & roll and that just doesn't really interest me. I just couldn't feel bad for the characters, as most of them felt like awful, selfish people with lots of money.

I've decided to try and kick this reading slump by reading my book clubs January pick. I've enjoyed reading two of her other books so I'm hoping this one is also good. Going to enjoy a beer, the Christmas tree and the book for a relaxing evening.

Finally got to use my Daisy Jones bookmark. I tried to give you guys the link on Etsy but the shop I bought it from is no longer doing these bookmarks. Rereading this as I didn't want to get into something new before #AuldLangSpine starts.

Soubhiville I love the bookmark! I remember paying $10- 15 for concerts! Even the early Lallapaloozas were cheap. These days- definitely much much higher. Enjoy your reread 🙂 2mo

I chose to go with the audiobook and wow – The casting was amazing!!! Jennifer Beals has such a voice that reflects a little bit of rasp and grit while Pablo Schreiber's voice lents it's warmth to Billy's character that makes him shine and Benjamin Bratt shines as Graham while omg Judy Greer's voice feels so spot on for Karen Karen and her quips and confidence.

I‘m a little embarrassed that I didn‘t realize this was a fictional band until the end. I‘m not the most musical and assumed they just weren‘t around long enough to still be played/common enough today and I figured several of them had died from overdoses. It was interesting, but also sad. I did like how it was written though, like interviews remembering the past.

majkia I dunno about the fort, but I did hide under the blankets at night with a flashlight to read, since my parents disapproved of me reading so much.

As for books, the Trixie Belden series reminds me most of my childhood. (I'm old).

This is sex, drugs, and rock‘n‘roll. I listened to the audio and it was so well done. The story was good (I‘d give the story itself 3.5 stars), but (as I always do when it‘s this good), I am adding an extra ¼ star for the audio. But also an additional ¼ star for the format of the book. Cont in comments...

LibraryCin It‘s told in interviews with many of the characters: the people mentioned above, but also Billy‘s wife, Daisy‘s best friend/disco star, the band‘s producer, and many more. I think this format led really well to the audio, with each character having a different narrator for the audio. So well done! 6mo

WOW! A fictional story purportedly based loosely on Fleetwood Mac. This may be a fictional story but the book reads as though these events really happened. It's raw & honest, it's occasional sweetness wrapped up in a gut punch. It was amazing listening to this documentary style book, all the different characters, all the different voices, simply amazing! I can't tell you how many times I Googled a song to listen to! Listen to this one!🎧

I never wanted to read this, and I don't know why! I really liked Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising, and I LOVE full cast audiobooks. Maybe it was whatever the opposite of FOMO is...FOJI (fear of joining in 😆)? Extreme hype can turn me off sometimes. Anyway, I gave the audio a try, mostly because I wanted to try the show, and I loved it. Stellar voice performances made for a fully enjoyable and immersive audio experience.

Finished listening to my #titlesandtunes book for the month. It was a reread. I‘ve been planning to go back to the audio ever since I watched the Amazon adaptation. Since I‘d already read and seen the story this felt more like a comfort read because I knew what the tension was building toward. But I still loved being a voyeur into the scenes about the songwriting. Reading about the creative process in niche interest of mine. @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

This is a re-listen, and I‘m loving it almost as much the second time around! Back when it first came out this was my first experience with a full cast audio recording, and that‘s an experience you just can‘t recreate.

I‘ve always associated the book with Rumors, so I‘m grabbing my favorite iconic song from that album for our playlist.

I really enjoyed this book! I think I liked Evelyn Hugo more because it felt like it had more depth to it. But this book was really fun. Lots of drama and intrigue. The format made it easy to read it super fast in one sitting. I just started watching the show and let me tell you the book is much much better. I also liked this little plot twist at the end about the author if you could even call it a plot twist.

Written as a current day interview reflecting on the renowned career of a band launched into international prominence in the 70‘s. The attention to details of each differing recollection of events made the book more lifelike. It was a super easy read. Although, towards the end it just seemed to skip the subtitles of how the main characters relationship changed so rapidly. But overall would recommend for an easy quick read.

I was skeptical about reading this book because it's not my usual thing and it's written in the form of an interview. But I LOVED IT! I love classic rock and I love reading about how bands come together and the struggles that come with being famous. Drugs were so casual a few decades ago and it blows my mind how much people used and how it was socially acceptable.
A really great book about fame, substance abuse, love, and struggle.

Songs are about how it felt, not the facts. Self-expression is about what it feels to live, not whether you had the right to claim any emotion at any time.

I listened to the audio which was great with the full cast experience. I haven‘t read any other Taylor Jenkins Reid. I feel like the more popular an author is, the more reluctant I am to go there?! 😂 unless I‘ve been a fan since book 1 (like SJM). This book reminded me of the movie Almost Famous, which I love. Definitely well done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

LoveToReadLiveToRead I know what you mean about popular authors. I did enjoy Evelyn Hugo and just finished Carrie Soto which worked so well for me on audio. That was mostly the narrator from Carrie‘s POV but had additional cast for other bits, media reports etc, which worked was good. 9mo

I‘ve heard rave reviews but… I don‘t get it. The storytelling was interesting but the interview style was confusing early on - maybe it was because I was listening to the audiobook and not seeing the words in the page, but I lost track of the characters and ended up abandoning the book for a couple of months and starting over recently. The story was ok, loads of people behaving badly to the point it was the norm, leaving Camila as my MVP. It‘s ok.
