Once I was able to get into this book I wasn’t able to put it down. Fascinating tale of a rock band in the 70s from each person of the band. The audiobook was everything ( )
Daisy Jones & The Six (Hardcover) by by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I really liked the book and the audiobook was very well done. I am not familiar with all of the drama of the 70s rock bands. Despite this, I enjoyed the story and the characters. I felt like I kept forgetting some of the members of the band and had to remind myself who they were when bits of their story surfaced, but that is OK because the focus of the story is really Daisy and Billy. I liked the interview style of the story because it gave the characters a chance to reflect on the situations they found themselves in instead of just telling you what happened. Overall, it was a fun read and an excellent audio performance.
This one is a long time coming, and has sat on my to be read shelf for a very long time. I didn’t really know how I was going to like the interview format, as it caught me off guard in the beginning. However, it kept me intrigued. My one complaint, and this is just how I am as a reader sometimes, is that I found myself forgetting who was who. For instance, a character was introduced earlier in the book, and their name would appear again and I would completely forget who they were relevant to the story (except for the band members).
I appreciated the interview was written by Camille’s daughter, which you don’t find out until later, and I think that adds just an extra layer to the book that makes it all the more special. I think the story ends in a way that has you wanting more, but ultimately you know that’s where it needs to end.
Im very excited to watch the TV show, as I wanted to finish the book before I started it. I know from what I’ve seen online that parts of it are portrayed differently, as most screen adaptations are. Nonetheless, I think it will be nice to see the story play out with visuals. All in all, a great book that I am glad I have read.
This book eventually grabbed me but it took awhile. I found the interview style difficult to get into and, more than that, it just didn't seem that exciting to read about a fictional band whose music doesn't actually exist. Or more specifically, it's not fun to essentially read a Behind The Music episode when you've never heard any of the music being discussed. More than halfway through I felt more invested with the characters and was into seeing how it ended. Some people have recommended the audiobook and that makes a lot of sense, that's probably the best way to enjoy it.

Like I said, this was a good book. The writing was good, the scenes were vivid, the characters had depth. I just simply didn’t like it on a personal level.
"Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go-Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it's the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she's twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Another band getting noticed is The Six, led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she's pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road. Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend. The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice"--
