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 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. ♥️

Mdargusch Good to know! Nothing better than a well read audiobook! 2d
leahsbookishobsession This is one my all time favs too. The cast of narrators for this was phenomenal. 2d
marleed This audiobook was so good that I listened to the whole thing. Then I immediately went and bought the book and did a read/listen again. There‘s a distinct reason why it‘s fun to reread to catch nuances knowing now the ending! 2d

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.

Loved it! Would‘ve thought this was autobiographical the way it was written. A few characters to keep track of but you figure them out pretty quickly. Was a quick read but very thorough, with real song lyrics at the end.

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.

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.

jillrhudy The big buzz about this is the audiobook, which has a full cast, and which I won't get until Christmas because as a librarian myself I refuse to pay Audible for it! 3w

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.

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.

Bookzombie I agree! Audio is definitely the way to go on this one.

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.

52-2019 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
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.

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. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
