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.

It‘s not a knock your socks off book, but definitely an enjoyable read. I especially liked the interview format.

Yesterday was a big project y‘all. 🥵 Fortunately it was in the 70‘s and not the 90‘s like it was today!
It was all worth it though — the “after” is my new morning reading spot! ☕️📚😌 (And evening, honestly, once the sun goes down and if the bugs aren‘t bad. 🍺📚😂)

Told as an oral history of "The Greatest Band of the 70s" this is a wonderfully clever pastiche of all those glossy rock mag retellings of the story of the Mac, CSN&Y etc. And you'll end it wishing you could reach for the Spotify playlist and hear Aurora, This Could Get Ugly and the rest for yourself. If you love 70s rock you'll dig this (man).

I can‘t recommend how wonderful this book is enough. Joyful, heartbreaking and insightful.

Which is what we all want from art, isn‘t it? When someone pins down something that feels like it lives inside us? Takes a piece of your heart out and shows it to you? It‘s like they are introducing you to a part of yourself.

Such fun. It was an fictional oral history format but read like a gossip rag. oversimplified at first (drugs, sex, rock n roll) but the characters really grew on me by the end. It‘s a quick read.

I finished this about 60 seconds ago, and I'm still choked up from that last line. This one had #allthefeels - and what a ride it was. The author brought the characters and the band so vividly to life that I kept wishing I could hear the songs they were talking about, or pull up a YouTube video of a concert appearance. This one deserves all the stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

JillR I really enjoyed this one too...I highly recommend the tagged book if you enjoyed this; there‘s an album recorded to go with the book 💛 (edited) 5d

This was a perfect audiobook—multiple voices, heartbreaking story, twists, well-written. I loved how the multiple viewpoints led to people remembering different things (what color dress someone was wearing) and people experiencing different reactions to the same incident. Judy Greer was in particular a spectacular narrator. ❤️❤️🎸🎤

I couldn‘t put this book down! I ate it up and I still can‘t believe that Daisy and Billy and the band aren‘t actual people. Reid does a fantastic job of story telling through the characters. It tackles some subjects that have many shades of gray.

I really wasn‘t that sure about this book at first. I was compelled to finish it and was glad I persisted. It went from being a ‘So-so‘ to a ‘Pick‘ by the end. I also found myself listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac when I wasn‘t reading it 😀

Daisy Jones & the Six tells the story about a 70s rock band in the form of interviews with band members. It is fantastic as an audiobook with separate actors for each character. I really wanted to go listen to the music and found it super disappointing to have to keep reminding myself this band did not exist (the style the story is told makes it feel real.)

It's all about the band - the relationships, the addictions, the creative energy.

BkClubCare I thought it was based on Fleetwood Mac? 5d

#AMonthOfSongs Day 11 : #LoveMeNow
Daisy Jones, a girl with all the privileges, beauty and talent in music, wants to be heard and recognised for her music. It's also a story about women who know what they want and not afraid to go for it and support each other in the process.
Another book by #TaylorJenkinsReid, (who has become my favorite writer) about strong women and #SelfLove

Well, this lived up to the hype! I was not a massive fan of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, so went into this with lower expectations. But Daisy Jones is a different animal. It was raw and emotional, it was gritty and fun, and it was a hell of a ride.⁣

One of my best reads this year! I loved the interview format and felt that it really gave you the different perspectives of events from each member of the band. I loved Daisy‘s “I‘m not here for you” attitude, but also her vulnerability.
