into a lot of drugs, but eventually got really famous We get to meet her other band mates, and other people in the music scene that changed her life, but all these voices feel disjointed and chaotic This was really difficult to read, even with all the notes I was taking I don t care about Eddie, or Graham, or Warren, or Billy, or Rod, or Camila, or Karen Karen eye roll forever Honestly I don t even care that much about Daisy I just feel bad for her Simone was my favorite, easily, but even their voice wasn t enough for me to continue on I learned about sex and love the hard way That men will take what they want and feel no debt, that some people only want one piece of you I will say that I m not the biggest fan of the 60s and 70s in general, but I think if anyone could make me appreciate the decades, it would be TJR Maybe I ll try this one again closer to the release date, but right now this just doesn t feel like the book for me But take this review with a grain of salt because it is

by Reece Witherspoon, and I must add that though the accounts given in the narrative are pure fiction, it nevertheless feels atmospherically real in its echoes of actual bands from this era, say perhaps the likes of Fleetwood Mac Billy Dunne is the leading light of an up and coming band The Six, going off the rails with his wild behaviour when he learns that his girlfriend is pregnant The young, beautiful, captivating and unapologetic Daisy Jones has oodles of musical talent and a distinctive voice which gains an army of admirers Daisy Jones and The Six join forces that results in an explosive emotional roller coaster of a ride that consolidates their near mythical musical status in musical history The rise and fall of the band is voiced through the differing perspectives of the band and those close to and around them.Much of the narrative is delivered through the form of interviews and it becomes clear that not everyone has the same memories of events with their different perspectives I came to appreciate the superb complicated characterisation and the relationships, with the flawed, destructive and damaged characters, so very vulnerable, feeling spine tingling real in their authenticity Reid provides insights and observations of love, loss, cheating, drug addiction, heartbreak, passion and fraught times intermingle with the creative musical inspiration and spellbinding performances This is an intelligent evocation of this specific period in time and place, the music and an unforgettable rock group of its time It is an absolute treat to read, I loved the songs and lyrics within it and I have no doubt that this book will prove to be highly successful Looking forward to the TV series of this Many thanks to Random House Cornerstone for an ARC flag 95

through to the present decade This whole book is written as an interview transcript of the band and those associated with it in the present day, detailing the past of the flawed but iconic Daisy Jones and the prominent members of The Six mainly the heart throb, Billy Dunne, lead singer , to how the two came together, the rather rough conflicts within the band hidden from public eye, to the sudden fall and disbandment of the band The story particularly focused on the selfishness, self absorbent and love hate relationship of the two lead singers Daisy and Billy, and what this was like to witness from other band members, who were also all complex and had their own issues to overcome.This a story including the rise of fame under the Californian heat sex, drugs, bad decisions and rock and roll Taylor Jenkins Reid TJR does an absolutely brilliant job at creating an utterly believable and engaging transcript of the rise of fame as a 70 s rock band Several times I believed Daisy Jones and The Six were a real band and needed to remind myself that this was fictional The writing was utterly compelling, persuasive and inventive and I found myself lost and entranced in the life of those of The Six Daisy was an utterly compelling and alluring character beautiful, talented and created, despite having her many flaws and annoyance of the character Here is a girl who is given the lavish lifestyle, but desperately wants to make her own name, fame and earn rewards for herself, without always considering the perspectives or the effects these decisions may have on other people She is also a very no nonsense female and has had enough of living in a mans world, so takes the decisions in her life in her own stride She is also very reliant on drugs Even though Daisy was the main focal point and female character in this book, in general the female characters in this book were utterly captivating for me and were all unique in their own individual way TJR does an excellent job at writing and displaying the different decisions and paths in life that all the women in this book undertake and she rightly shows how it is OK that women follow different paths and decisions in life from other women, and at times during their lives, mistakes will happen Despite maybe not appearing straight on the surface, TJR writes subtly how this sisterhood of support is available despite bad or different decisions are supported, despite not aligning to ones own decisions in life This can be demonstrated through Simone s love and devotion of Daisy as a best friend, or Karen s Keyboardist, The Six decision to depart from traditionalist female roles The band echoed that of Fleetwood Mac and I imagine Daisy s voice similar to Stevie Nicks or Patti Smith two female lead singer s I absolutely LOVE , a voice that is so compelling you can t help but listen and be awed by TJR shows a real cleverness by writing this as an oral biography as the band was truly believable and their story sucks you in As a side note the songs that the band sing mentioned in this book are written at the end of the book All the lyrics are available for the reader to devour It is my belief that TJR could be a song writer or poet after reading these lyrics for a fictional band An additional side note there is a Daisy Jones and The Six playlist on Spotify which TJR created as they helped her for her ideas of Daisy Jones and The Six.I did not receive this book from a publisher, I actually found this copy at a charity book shop without realising until after I bought the book that this was a

shared from different perspectives, various people both in the band and those that worked with them, knew them and some who were related to them This begins in 1965, but continues on through the years that follow in an effort to explain the breakup of Daisy Jones The Six their expanding fame, but it begins with the original The Six members, their struggles, their hopes and dreams Daisy is a girl as this begins, coming of age as she sneaks into the clubs on Sunset Strip, with a voice that will eventually get noticed, but it s her reckless beauty that get her invited in by the bands.Billy Dunne is the one leading The Six as they set out on their first tour, and a producer has an idea to try adding Daisy as a singer for just one song They were already a band on the verge of major success Would Daisy add magic Or mayhem This story is shared through a series of interviews sans questions with the now disbanded band members This helped move the story along at a pace that somewhat added to the mounting frenzy as the story unfolds through the various members of the band involved.I loved this from the start, and I really did not want to put it down It may not be destined to be a classic, but it was completely engaging, utterly entertaining and a marvelous way to spend a few hours of my day Destined to be a best seller, this will be a 13 part series courtesy of Reese Witherspoon s company

questions Each beloved character takes part talking about about Daisy Jones and how she joins the rock band The Six We get into the personal and professional lives of these characters, the rise and

limited the musical experimentation and growth of other band members, causing resentment In addition, Billy was struggling with alcohol addiction But when he fell in love with his future wife Camila, she was the kind of woman who made him want to be a better man Daisy Jones was a teenager in the sixties who was free spirited and beautiful and gravitated to the Sunset Strip She would manage to slip into rock shows like at the famed Whisky a Go Go, sleep with rock dudes and eventually get noticed as a gifted singer herself Fate brought The Six and Daisy Jones together on stage and the connection between Billy and Daisy was sizzling When they sang together, and pointedly at each otherit was as if no one else was in the room Billy had what he thought was a finished album of songs already written, but Daisy fought mightily thrusting lyric filled songbook at him to co mingle their writing talents The result was the iconic album Aurora.The book reveals simmering conflicts within the band While Billy was trying to remain strong against his alcohol addiction, Daisy was off the rails with both an alcohol and drug addiction There was a secret romance between two band members, and a forbidden attraction between two others One band member felt stifled artistically another was very laissez faire about the whole thing and thought about leaving to be with his girlfriend The story unfolds very organically to arrive at why the band suddenly broke up at the height of their fame.This was extremely well written and believable as if you were reading about a real band I think this was a great original idea for a book that the author executed quite well flag 55 likesLike see review View all 22 comments Deanna I m glad you liked it I m intrigued 11 hours, 18 min ago TUDOR QUEEN

Did you ever watch VH1 behind the music This book literally transported me to an episode of that show This book is in interview format the entire time but I felt like I was watching Behind the Music.Daisy Jones is a young girl who has everything but also has no one She is the most gorgeous woman you ve ever seen but her parents could care less about her She didn t have many friends and guys only wanted to talk to her because she s beautiful She has this amazing and raspy voice and finds a purpose in singing However, she wants to write her own stuff, not just be someone s muse.Billy, Graham, Warren, Pete, Karen and Eddie love playing music They start out small and eventually become The Six They start to record albums and playing on tour They are starting to make it and they couldn t be happier The band s manager looks for an act to open for the band on tour.Insert Daisy Jones who now opens for the Six Eventually the decision is made to have her join the band and then Daisy Jones The Six is born From there, we learn the story of what the band went through and why they broke up on July 12, 1979This story is amazing and so accurate It transported me back to the 1970 s or what I would imagine since I wasn t even born I imagine this is exactly how bands operated, partied, etc during that era What I loved most about this book was the stories happening outside the actual band There were so many mini stories happening that I continued to wonder what was going to happen There s affairs, drug use, hook ups, pregnancies, addiction, sadness, hurting one another, etc You name it, it probably happened but that s because historically that s what did happen.I really have nothing negative to say about this book except that I couldn t get through it fast enough I kept wanting to see how the band was going to split up and it ended up being for some reasons I predicted and some that took a different turn Also, the narrator of this story is quite a surprise I loved it though It made the story come together at the end and made it even raw and real.I highly recommend this for anyone It s a wonderful story and even wonderfully told by Taylor Jenkins Reid It publishes in March 2019 Pre order your copy now you will not regret it Oh and I heard this is being turn into a TV series on The entire time I read it, I thought it would be great if this was a TV or Movie So

is being released hahahaha but I can t wait any longer, because you guys This is an epic, phenomenal read that I will never forget I m scared to even try and write a review because no way can I do it justice but I have to try Here goes The structure of this was amazing, it s composed of oral interviews with the members of Daisy Jones and the Six and those people closest to them, so you have a large cast of characters to love And I loved many of them The band is clearly fictional but TJR has the uncanny ability to create these fake celebrities that feel so very real and authentic that you find yourself thinking, wait did I actually miss a huge band in the seventies called DJATS She s that good, I don t know how she does it but she s genius Why are these characters so memorable Because they re so well developed, they re larger than life and they just feel real On top of outstanding characterization the story itself is a thing of beauty It s fun, wild, totally rock and roll but it s also poignant, touching and incredibly moving It is absolutely everything and it is a story for everyone.If you re a music fan in general, but especially if you loved or still do music from Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, etc this is a must read TJR captures that era beautifully and will make you want to listen to it as a background while you re reading Once again this read like an epic saga of a group of people s lives, an intimate inside look behind the scenes of band and I could not get enough of it Also, Reese Witherspoon is making a TV show and I cannot wait If you loved Evelyn you ll adore this one as well, if you haven t read Evelyn go catch up while we wait for it to come out and basically if you like reading in general just do yourself a favor and pre order it now You re welcome.Daisy Jones and the Six in three words Epic, Innovative and Moving.Overall rating 5 5 ALL THE STARS flag 36 likesLike see review View all 8 comments Jan 18, 2019 Kristy K rated it it was

crazy excited to get my hands on a digital galley of her forthcoming novel, Daisy Jones and the Six, which tells the story of a fictional 70s rock band in the format of an oral history The author compiling the book includes interviews with all seven members of the band, and covers their origins, their coming together, and their all too brief career that ended unexpectedly while they were riding the top of the charts It s remarkably well done oral histories can be tricky things to read when they re genuine nonfiction, because you have to pepper in context and balance points of view Reid has managed to make a fake oral history that feels neither fake nor like an oral history Daisy Jones was a troubled teen groupie with an incredible voice when she landed a record contract and started opening up for the Six, an up and coming rock act on their first major tour A duet with the band began to draw attention But when her manager left her high and dry, she was eventually taken in by the band and became an official member But the story isn t so neat from there, as is often the case in show business There s friction between Daisy and founder Billy Dunne, because both want to be the creative force driving the band s career There s also friction between other band members, driven by egos, addiction, attraction, and a desire to be doing anything other than standing in the spotlight The story also includes other members of the band s orbit, such as Billy s eventual wife, Daisy s friend and sometimes caretaker, the band s manager, their producer, a sound engineer, and a couple of music journalists each with a unique voice, and each cleverly missing a portion of the story I really appreciate how some characters remain oblivious to others feelings and behavior, which struck me as incredibly realistic They re recalling the highest point in their careers from four decades ago, and the narrative crackles with details of sex, drugs, and rock roll They re all perhaps a bit insightful and honest than real rock stars might be, but it s never quite clear where the story is headed, which infuses the story with an unbelievable amount of tension I devoured the entire thing in a day and a half I think that this sort of Hollywood infused tale told in a unique format seems to be Reid s sweet spot Like Evelyn Hugo, Daisy Jones feels like a genuine piece of entertainment writing about real life celebrities Also like Evelyn Hugo, Reid inserts a bit of twist into the final pages It doesn t really add that much to the story but it doesn t really take away from it either Really, though, this is just an incredibly fun novel that s done some incredibly interesting things with structure and prose If you re into rock histories, if you loved Evelyn Hugo, or if you re just looking for something refreshingly different, I can t recommend Daisy Jones the Six enough flag 30 likesLike see review View all 8 comments Aug 27, 2018 Pavlina Read sleep less blog

motto before it became everyone else s In the L.A area she knew just about everyone involved in music and most in show business Funny thing though, she wasn t aching to be in the limelight, she just kind of fell into it somehow Man, did she fall into it big.While Daisy Jones is a fictional character in a damn good book, she could be the culmination of several superstars of that era like Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, and Grace Slick Some of the best of the sexy and extremely talented women that led their bands to global notoriety These women were worshiped and respected in their industry and just a few of many in the rock genre Hundreds in RB, Soul, Jazz, etc And Billy Dunne, so many men could represent his type of edgy lead singer showman from the seventy s era From Roger Daltrey of the Who, to Mick Jagger of the Stones, to Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Don Henley of the Eagles, not to mention Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and countless others You didn t even have to single out any of them for drugs and alcohol, since eighty percent of most band members were usually high on something Maybe not all the time, certainly not all, but many indulged and freely talk about it now, amazed they ve survived this long.In this fictionalized account of the band, Daisy Jones the Six, Billy was already singing in a band, had a girlfriend, and was messing up all on his own from time to time It wasn t until he met Daisy that this tightrope dance began They were competitive artists immediately, especially in their song writing skills Billy thought Daisy was an immature, rich kid, always high and just playing around with singing in a band She was right, he didn t take her seriously But when Daisy was on the stage, Damn, she could deliver a song with power and emotion and when they sang together watch out it was as if they were alone up there, just the two of them, making love with words, and their eyes and their voices Whew Hot It was hot The songs they wrote separately or together were hit makers On tour, the sexual tension was a tease Look but don t touch It played well on stage, but it drove both of them mad back at the band s hotel Billy was married with kids and he made promises Daisy made promises to no one, but she didn t want to be the cause of any breakups not Billy s marriage, and not the bands.Daisy Jones the Six traveled to every city and became phenomenally successful, than they ever imagined Incredible story exquisitely told Capturing the seventy s music history in one novel with astounding musical knowledge and original songs written by Reid herself.An unbelievable accomplishment My hat s off to you, Taylor Jenkins Reid READ Thank you to NetGalley, Ballantine Books, Random House, and Ms Taylor Jenkins Reid flag 23 likesLike see

and emotion necessary to make this worth reading To make the stylistic choice than just a clever hook Well, you ve seen the 5 stars The answer is yes and hell yes On the face of it, this book is about the kind band stories we all already know We ve seen read heard about them before We understand that meteor rise and what it does to people the drugs and parties, the clash of personalities, the touring life, the fame and the fall These experiences are real They happened They are right now And the format just adds to that feeling of truth and nostalgia we already take to the book, gifting it with a hyper reality that is instant and affecting It gives the narrative it s own kind of backstory, like this is only the newest episode in a long running drama Because of that, all we re really doing is getting to know the characters , not meeting them for the first time A behind the scenes special, no holds barred stuff You know the drill Yet this knowledge only enhances the emotional impact of the highs and lows We feel it because it s not just about the rock and roll, it s about how people deal with what life throws at them, good or bad There were parts that made me feel understood and I m about as far away from these characters as you can get It s about love and longing, family, making the right choices, friendship, identity And it does it within the framework of a seemingly simple band biography Pretty clever stuff Memorable enough that I ll be thinking about it for days Not just what was said, but how It s exquisitely layered, each person s recollections tumbling over the others , sometimes in agreement, sometimes wildly different, but all building into this multiplicity of memories that still feels like a shared experience It s just like every time your group of friends gets together to talk about the good old days, full of half remembrances, contradicting statements, and outright lies And it s even better than that because it also includes those juicy, heartbreaking bits that people don t usually say to each other Then in between the lines hide truths characters are keeping even from themselves Look beyond the surface and this book has the kind of emotive storytelling that feels like real life messy and complicated and relatable I ve never read anything quite like it Well worth experiencing before it hits your tv screens ARC via

single character I didn t like.Reid also has this genius ability to give you a reveal towards the end of the book that is as impactful as it is subtle I have a feeling that many people will say if you loved Almost Famous that you ll love this book and while that is true, this book holds it s own without any comparison or if you like this you ll love that kind of thought.Just read this book Please also, how cool is it that Reese Witherspoon will be producing the adaptation Thank you Ballantine Books for this copy flag 21 likesLike see review View all 11 comments Sep 18, 2018 Brandie rated it it

    2. With a touch of the tribulations of Fleetwood Mac, Reid offers a very different novel from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo It is equally as enjoyable From the onset we know that the band breaks up The reasons for the break up are told by the band mates via a series of question less interviews This is smart choice rather a question answer structure which would, I think, become tedious From 1965 through 2012, the characters tell the story of the formation of the band, their struggle to achi With [...]


    3. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.DNF 22% I love you as much as I m willing to love anybody I can t believe I m DNFing a Taylor Jenkins Reid book She wrote one of my favorites books of all time, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, that means to me than I have words to even begin to express But this This was just boring, and crude, and told in such a bad format It s like mini interviews if you will, where multiple people are talking, but [...]


    4. This is one for music fans everywhere from Taylor Jenkins Reid, a multilayered fictional documentary of a fictional legendary rock band set in the music scene of California and LA in the 1960s and 1970s This is to be turned into a TV series on by Reece Witherspoon, and I must add that though the accounts given in the narrative are pure fiction, it nevertheless feels atmospherically real in its echoes of actual bands from this era, say perhaps the likes of Fleetwood Mac Billy Dunne is th This is [...]


    5. I m realizing now that I m one of those folks in the minority when it comes to TJR and her most recent books I fell in love with her contemporary romance novels years ago, but have found that I struggle with her historical fiction, which is strange because it seems these are the stories that have catapulted her into mainstream fiction Uber Fame Level Achieved Here s the thing, it must be a case of my not being as interested in and compatible with the story content, because her writing q [...]


    6. 4 So as 2018 closes, Daisy Jones and The Six was my last book of the year Daisy Jones and The Six details the rise and sudden fall of the rock band in the 70 s, with a brief cut through to the present decade This whole book is written as an interview transcript of the band and those associated with it in the present day, detailing the past of the flawed but iconic Daisy Jones and the prominent members of The Six mainly the heart throb, Billy Dunne, lead singer , to how the two came toget 4 So as [...]


    7. I had not read anything by Taylor Jenkins Reid before I received an advanced copy of this I d read the publisher s synopsis of this story and was drawn to the setting, the era, and the idea of it all And then yesterday, I read Reid s Evidence of the Affair and I knew I wanted to read this one right away, so I set aside the one I d planned to read next and grabbed this one I m so glad I did A coming of age story set in the late sixties, with a setting that included clubs on Sunset Strip, s [...]
