    Daisy Jones & the Six is a masterpiece. Incredible. Intoxicating. Unforgettable. Truly one of the most remarkable stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The moment I finished, I had to immediately start from the beginning again. I refused to let go. And yes, I did read it twice in a row.CW: substance abuse/addiction, abortionSet in the mid sixties – late seventies, Daisy Jones & The Six transports readers to the most iconic age of roc...

    I know many people loved this book, and it's not as if I don't see why, but this choice of narration just really didn't work for me. I found Reid's The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo absolutely riveting from the very first chapter, but I thought the decision to write this book entirely in interview transcripts made it really boring and emotionless.Daisy Jones & The Six is essentially a band documentary transcript. I'm sure most of you have seen a ...

    IS THIS AS GOOD AS THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO?That was my main question when I picked up this book. Sadly, no. There was a lot of potential but I felt like the story wasn't flesh out enough. I highly recommend listening to this one as an audiobook due to the format (interviews). Reminded me a bit of A Star Is Born, but maybe less tragic and with a very confident main female character. The characters were definitely attaching but I felt lik...

    i finally got my hands on the audio of this and it is everything i thought it would be - the authenticity, the intrigue, the drama, the rock n’ roll, the emotion. this is a masterpiece and the six are the life and soul of this story. i CANNOT wait for the day when their songs become streamable on spotify. ___________________________________________there has been some sort of mistake. this book is labelled as fiction, but that cant be right. the...

    Felt like I watched an amazing documentary while I’m reading an exhilarating book. It’s an unforgettable ride with full of not much sex, but too much drugs and rock&roll. I love the lyrics, especially “ Impossible woman”, “ Regret me” and “ Turn it off” and of course “ A hope like you”!Welcome to the 70’s world with the rising of a rock band, smashing egos of group members, emotional turmoils, pain of creativity and performi...

    Apparently I read a different book than everyone else. Or maybe my brain just thinks it's funny to make me hate hyped books idk. This didn't touch me whatsoever. I was bored and the story and some actions of the characters felt repetitive to the point that I skipped some paragraphs. Everything was so predictable and dialogues even felt pretentious sometimes. Trying to be meaningful while actually being pseudo deep (like 80% of tumblr u know?).Sur...

    NEW UPDATED REVIEW.....I already expressed LOVING this novel: REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVING IT.....about a fictional rock band in the 1970’s - their rise through the ranks of the LA music scene - eventually becoming one of the most legendary bands in the world. Taylor Jenkins Reid is not a novice author. Her other five books:“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo”, “One True Loves”,“Maybe in Another Life”, “After I Do”, “Forever, In...

    I listened to the audiobook and I gotta say, Taylor Jenkins Reid has knocked it out of the park again. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. This audiobook was one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to and I am SO GLAD that I decided to take in the story that way. It was narrated by a full cast and I just about died when my girl Judy Greer started speaking in my ear as the voice of Karen Karen. Seriously y'all, so fucking good. I WILL SAY, the reason I'm ...

    I think if I had read a physical copy of this book it would have been 4 stars. But, the audiobook presentation is 5 stars, no doubt! The full cast experience as though it all really happened was riveting. I was reminded of VH1 Behind the Music.Another thing I was reminded of was A Star Is Born. The chemistry between the characters and the battles against self destruction are strong themes in both. If you are a fan of that movie, I think you will ...

    The 1970's was an amazing decade for music. The rock genre took the world by storm, selling out arenas and gathering heretofore unheard of crowds of obsessed fans. Groups such as The Who, Led Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult, Boston, and Queen were living large with lifestyles infused with sex, drugs and rock and roll. This novel is the fictional profile of one such band, Daisy Jones & the Six.Told via a highly creative interview format, Daisy Jones & ...

    Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a 2019 Ballantine Books publication. Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll! I mean, that’s what the seventies were all about, man!! Right? Taylor Jenkins Reid has done an admirable job of creating the atmosphere and mindset of the seventies and the rock bands that were catapulted to success beyond their wildest dreams. From their humble incarnation to their mega-stardom, to their slide down into relative ob...

I really did. Then I stopped.

    Taylor Jenkins Reid's strength lies in her ability to write realistic characters and relationships and take you through a whole life journey. This book has all the elements that we love about Evelyn Hugo: a unique storytelling format, a life story, a notorious historical setting, an iconic main character, a tumultuous and very human relationship, etc. It's the same formula, but switched with different variables, and therefore I think how much you...

    i love karen with my whole entire heart.Aug 10, 2019 update:I talk more about why I didn't love this one in my recent reads video here: youtu.be/bM5Wh7rpwSQBut honestly, I just really struggled to particularly care or connect with most of the characters, and the ending was How I Met Your Mother-level bad. But I still love Karen.

    Is there anyone in their 60s or older that doesn’t see the cover for this book, read the summary and doesn’t immediately think of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac? Reid does a great job capturing that sense of stardom; the sex, drugs and rock n roll. I love how this book is written, as if it is a history of an actual band, as if it’s a compilation of interviews with everyone involved. It was wild to see how different things said or done were ...

    So this is a girl that desperately wants to connect. But there’s no one in her life who is truly interested in who she is, especially not her parents. And it really breaks her. But it is also how she grows up to become an icon. And that is what this is, a story about a girl who wanted to connect with the world and have anyone out there willing to spare some time out to listen to her, listen to every word she had to let out. It's a story about ...

    We love broken, beautiful people. And it doesn’t get much more obviously broken and classically beautiful than Daisy Jones. I so connected to this book as it took me back to my teen years of the 1970’s in which music, specifically rock n roll, played a huge part. My now husband and I were always traveling to big concert events in our late teens. One of the most memorable was on July 30, 1978, where we stood in the sweltering heat just feet fr...

    This was the most perfect audiobook I've ever listened to. These narrator's deserve Oscars. Seriously. The acting was on another level of brilliance. The narrator's made an effort to bring TJR's characters to life. So to speak. I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse.I am not a muse.I am the somebody.End of fucking story.If you want to get the full experience I highly recommend the audiobook. The main reason this was so goo...

    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 more a case of my not being as interested in and compati...

    Have you ever felt like there were two versions a book out there. There's the version everyone you know read. The one with the raving reviews. The one that everyone loved. Then there is the version you read. The one that is underwhelming and dry and was nothing at all like what you expected it to be. Have you ever felt that? Because I feel that sometimes.This is one such time.Seriously though, did I read the same book as everyone else?I was hopin...

    Rating 4.25I've been fighting this author for some odd, un-explainable reason. But now, I can admit it. I'm a Taylor Jenkins Reid fan. Every time I would see one of her books I'd say 'oh, she's not for me'. People are raving about one of her books and I'd say 'those books are nothing that I like'. Due to the Travelling Sisters group, I joined in and read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I kinda thought 'oh I know I'm not going to like it' but I...

    As someone who is a big fan of oral histories of pop culture things, and as someone who gives a rousing “sign me the hell up” to Taylor Jenkins Reid writing about historical Hollywood in any way: This book is a dream.When I am not reading books, I spend a lot of my time reading in-depth articles. Sometimes these are on subjects I have little to no outside interest in: rich people bickering over preschool traditions, incels getting plastic sur...
