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.

Told as the written form of a docudrama, this touches on the personal lives of a 1970s fictional rock band. The amazing audio version amplifies personality traits of characters, especially Daisy & Billy, who are both egotistical yet insecure. Daisy is described this way, “She‘s gorgeous—even as a child. She has these stunning big blue eyes—dark, cobalt blue.“ Based on the bookcovers, you'd never know it, so that is my one small quibble. #audiobook

marleed A couple years back I read TJR describe Daisy as a cross between Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstadt. I love that Elvis Presley‘s granddaughter portrays Daisy in the adaptation- what a great tribute to music. 3d
Ann_Reads @marleed Thank you for mentioning that. I didn't realize Riley Keough is Elvis Presley's granddaughter. I hope the Amazon miniseries stays true to the book. 3d

39 of 2022. I enjoyed this one. I think it was a good pick for audiobook due to the story being told thru interviews. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have mixed feelings about this one. It's a good story which takes place in a fascinating era. The character interactions and motivations are believable. And I love TJR's no-nonsense writing style. Still something didn't click. ⬇️

eeclayton It may be the format. I've seen my fair share of rock documentaries, and what makes them gripping to me is when they tell the story behind the music. But here, with an imaginary band, with imaginary songs, it felt like all the rock and roll clichés poured into one generic '70s group. 1w
eeclayton While reading, I could picture all the different characters talking to the camera on VH1, but the references to their songs and albums and tours were meaningless, rendering the experience quite weightless for me. It wasn't a bad read, but I enjoyed Evelyn Hugo and One True Loves much-much more. 1w

While I personally may have been hoping for a different ending, overall the book was great and the ending was fitting enough! 8/10

Two bingos! #bookspinbingo There is a tie for my favorite book his month: Daisy Jones & The Six and True Biz. Honestly, this has been my favorite reading month so far. Most of these were hard to put down.

I‘ve finally realized that the 1619 project is not a straightforward read so I replaced it with a Hugo Award nominee. All other additional reads are outside the board.

Absolutely worth all the hype. I had to monitor when I picked this up to read because I couldn‘t put it back down. I loved how no one remembered an event the same way. I loved how personalities came through each time a moment was retold differently. All of it was so well done. I‘m excited to see the tv adaptation.

WOW… Another masterpiece by TJR! I have been in a reading rut lately but this book dragged me out of it. I really enjoyed the interview style of writing and the connections it forced me to make with the characters. This book was one that made me to feel exactly what the charceters were feeling and had me conflicted on who I was rooting for in the end. The story felt so real and alive. I was enthralled by the plot and couldn‘t put it down!

Set up like an interview, the book reads as a character‘s name and then their dialogue, no action description, quotes or parenthesis.

This shows the storytelling aspect from each different character in the band or related to the band, giving the reader different angles of the story and not letting them know which character is telling the truth.

During this re-read, I realized that Camilla is as big a part of this story as Eliza is in Hamilton. They‘re the ones who made (a large part of) the story happen. Camila Morrone looks like she‘s just right for the part of Camila Dunne. So excited for the show! 💖

marleed I reread this book immediately upon finishing realizing the fate of the characters, and the book is really told in memoriam for her to her daughter. I‘m curious to see if the show will be told in real time where Camille might be a bit different than what the band remembers her to be when talking to her daughter. 3mo
AileenRR @marleed Ooh, that‘s something I hadn‘t considered 🤔 3mo
marleed @AileenRR my mother died many years ago when I was two so I have no direct memories of her. All the stories I heard had me convinced my mother was canonized a saint and people just weren‘t told! I went out of state to her alma mater for college (one of had to!) and while there met someone who finally told me a less than perfect story of her. I was thrilled and it made her more real than all the stories that came before it! 3mo
See All 6 Comments
marleed So my second pass through this book made me think that if I was the daughter interviewing friends of my mother when she was alive, the stories would be most certainly tilted to my mother‘s favor. So no wonder everyone likes Camille best - she‘s been canonized! 3mo
AileenRR @marleed I love that you shared this point of view! And I‘m glad you got a more complex glimpse into who your mom was 😊 3mo

TJR does it again with this novel about a 1970s rock band‘s meteoric rise to stardom and infamous breakup. The voices in this book are so real I had to double-check that this is indeed a work of fiction. I simply fell in love with this band without hearing a single note of their music. The interview format of this really worked and TJR‘s ability to capture so many voices so well is a testament to her talent. Can‘t wait for the miniseries! 4⭐️

Book #7
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐+
This is one of my very favorite books since I first read it a couple of years ago. I heard that the audiobook was great, too, so now here I am. The performances - not just reading - were amazing, and did what I didn't think was possible, by making the characters even more real than Reid had already succeeded in making them. ❤❤❤ But why aren't they real??? I would give up chocolate for a year, just for a copy of their album, Aurora.

Kris10H My husband was playing on the XBox while I was crocheting and listening to the book. After listening for a while, he says "what band is this?", thinking that it was a work of non-fiction. That, to me, is the sign of a good book. 4mo

marleed Haha - I discovered TJR with this book and it spoke to me. I was convinced my sisters would have the same connection and practically forced them to each purchase their own copy. One bought at an airport in Ireland! But one sister disliked it so much she may have even considered severing our sisterly connections! I‘m very happy Litsy connections are fascinated when other Littens love what we pan! 4mo
Laughterhp @marleed I know! I love seeing people love and hating the same books on Litsy! And always nice finding people who agree with you. It‘s always crazy how you can love a book and someone else feels the complete opposite! 4mo
janeycanuck The Final Revival of Opal & Nev came immediately to mind for me, too. I haven‘t read it but I‘ve heard it‘s very similar to Daisy Jones. Take a peak at Rachel Joyce‘s The Music Shop. The ending was a bit of a letdown for me but otherwise was good. 4mo

This is my second time listening to this audiobook and I absolutely loved it, just as much as the first time ❤ I love when audiobooks have different narrators for each character 😍 Daisy Jones and The Six are the new, hottest, soft rock band in the mid-late 70s. Themes of the novel; drugs, sex and rock and roll. 🎵 Great novel!

Lots of hype surrounding this audiobook and I enjoyed it as something light and fluffy. Daisy Jones is a rich, neglected teen who becomes an It-girl on the Sunset Strip in the early 70s and joins The Six. Told via interviews with various band members and entourage, this is the story of the chaos, sex and drugs surrounding a touring rock band.
Perhaps with the exception of Camilla, none of the characters were likeable.

Am I the only one who didn‘t love this? Daisy‘s so unlikable, it was hard to even finish the audiobook. I kept thinking, ‘get on with the story, already.‘ Rockstars did a lot of drugs in the ‘70s. Bandmates don‘t always get along. Neither theme felt interesting or original. I loved “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” and “Malibu Rising.” This just felt like a letdown to me.

Aahhhh that any of us survived the angst of rock n roll…. The bands. The heartache. And the music. Always, the music. I finished this book at midnight. I loved the book. For me to be engaged with a book at midnight, is a tell all for me. I loved Daisy and Billy and every character they came across. They had so many commonalities but the best for me, was the person who to the very end, believed in them both.
