This was a very clever book, I had forgotten that it was fiction!
My last day of vacation.... #catsoflitsy
I was up until 430 finishing off this audiobook last night, and even though I now have 15 minutes to get outta bed, and get my butt out the door for work, im not even mad about it.
Anyone who knows me, knows I fly through my audiobooks, but I seen something special about this so took my time with this one. It might actually be my favourite audiobook ever.... if not ever, then definitely in the top 5. ♥️
This book about the rise of a 1970s rock band was one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to, with a full cast who truly make the story come alive. The interview style of writing allowed for different perspectives on the same event and, combined with the casting, made for a truly believable and engaging story.
Fun audiobook with a really talented voice cast. There wasn‘t anything super special about the story, so I‘m not sure it would have been as enjoyable in print. Because of the interview format, the character development was a bit one-dimensional, but I liked getting the different perspectives.
“Drinking, drugging, sleeping around, it‘s all the same thing.
You have these lines you won‘t cross. But then you cross them. And suddenly you possess the very dangerous information that you can break the rule and the world won‘t instantly come to an end.
...And now every time you cross it again, it just gets grayer and grayer until one day you look around and you think, ‘There was a line here once, I think.‘”
Is that not the TRUTH??
Loved this one — and it‘s the rare book that I think I would have felt lukewarm about it in print. The full cast recording does the story of a 1970s band rising to fame and glory to such excellent justice that the characters truly come alive.

While reading this book, I kept having a desire to hear the songs by Daisy Jones andThe Six. At the same time I had to remind myself that this fictional Fleetwood Mac-type band didn‘t really exist...that‘s how natural and believable the writing is in this page turner by Taylor Jenkins Reid. And that email at the end...that really hit me right in the feels.
Well I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract but as a matter of fact
Now that you're gone I still want you back
Remembering that part
All of my heart🎶
Made me think of Daisy and Billy...
This is not my usual genre, but the buzz got me curious. I absolutely loved this as an audiobook! From the cast to the writing, this was special. I am not a big music lover, but I was drawn into this bands drama like a bee to honey. So addictive and sweet! 🎶😍🤯
I really enjoyed the style of this book. I really enjoyed being able to interpret the conversations between characters since the author did not offer that background. It‘s like watching someone being skillfully interviewed while others offer commentary on her life.
Say what?!?!?! I was just informed that Daisy Jones and the Six is entirely made up! I'm in complete awe! Based on the storytelling, I thought it was real!
I am not a rock music listener, I know very little about it but as a librarian, I kept hearing about this title and adding people to the hold request list so I decided there there must be something to it. I enjoyed the storytelling of Taylor Jenkins Reid's other book so it wasn't too hard to decide and read this book too. No regrets, the multi narrative was a unique way of getting the story from everyone in and relating to the band.
Like Sadie by Courtney Summers, some books are just better as audio, with a full cast. Took forever, but my hold finally came in. I feel like there should be actual music tracks dispursed throughout. Other than that I like what I've listened to so far.
I so want to call in sick and just read all day. Ugh, adulting. I also doesn‘t help that my job is in a transition that‘s I don‘t love and my role is changing to do things I said I didn‘t want to do when I was hired. Sigh.
My vote for Karen Karen and Daisy Jones for the tv show. The audiobook production of this book is phenomenal. I can‘t imagine consuming this story any other way. The cast is amazing and turn up this mockumentary to 11. I‘m sure reading it would be fine, but I highly recommend the audiobook! This is the Rolling Stone and Behind the Music lovechild that hits me in the gut.
I really really enjoyed this book! It was a super-fast read, probably because of the interview format, and was perfect for my work trip.
I didn't really get the level of depth and female empowerment that others did - it seemed a fairly surface-level story that was very atmospheric and descriptive of what I assume that rock n roll culture was like in the seventies.
Tons of fun!
The book is fantastic. It‘s hard to believe they weren‘t a real band. It‘s told in snippets of interviews w/each band member & a few additional people. The audiobook is just perfect, one of the best I‘ve listened to. It‘s about addiction, temptation, the choices we make & the fall out that they cause. Billy Dunne, his girlfriend Camila, the wild Daisy, keyboardist Karen, etc., each character is so memorable. Definitely lived up to the hype for me.
Made it to page 73.
Bailing. Im bored.
Maybe if this were about an actual band I would care a little more?
I feel like I‘ve watched this book on VH1 already.
Basically this is written as the oral history of the fictional band "Daisy Jones & The Six" told from multiple points of view including band members, family members, journalists, tour managers etc etc. It was written really well and reads like a continuous narrative so you don't really notice the POV changes unless the retellings clashed. Loved It.
So, I‘m in the middle of this audiobook and I must say that Taylor Jenkins Reid is making her way over to my favorite authors' list. After diving deep into Evelyn Hugo‘s world (and loving it), it was a no brainer for me to give Daisy Jones & the Six a try. I‘m loving it so far and I‘m really interested to see how it‘s going to end.
Found out my local library has a book sale every Tuesday. I went in with low expectations, but I should have gone in with will power instead. 🤦♀️ but I found some great books —- even a coverless Daisy Jones and Veronica Mars! 👏
I have a plans to go to another library book sale on Friday so hopefully I can limit myself to a smaller #bookhaul after this one
Another great one by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I think she may now be one of my favorites. I loved the format of this book. The interview style wasn‘t something I‘ve read before and it was perfect. I didn‘t grow up in the 70s, but my parents are avid fans of classic rock n roll, so, therefore, I am too. I‘m using this one for #bookaboutaddiction because there were a lot of different forms of addiction in this book. #booked2019
I cannot get over this book. I can't wait to read more of Taylor Jenkins Reid. Any author that can tell a deep, emotional, heartbreaking, authentic story in complete interview format is something special in my book.
Daisy, Billy and the gang feel like real people that I want to get to know better. I want to hear their albums. I want to see them perform. I want to look at the photographs. If only it was all real.
Would DEFINITELY recommend. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
#audiocoloring in my NYC coloring book. Later this afternoon we have a spa date. It is a good Saturday ♥️
All the dinosaurs and all the stars.
Easily my favorite read of the year. An intricate telling of the inner workings of a diamond platinum band coming up in the seventies.
And it's going to be made into a TV series!
"And, baby, when you think of me,
I hope it ruins rock ‘n‘ roll"
My library hold on the tagged audio book FINALLY came in. As I sit here listening to it, I realized Sophie‘s paw looks like troll hair. Those furry feet get me every time! 😻 #catsoflitsy
