    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 ...

    there has been some sort of mistake. this book is labelled as fiction, but that cant be right. there is no way these people arent real and nothing you say will convince me otherwise. daisy jones & the six were the greatest rock ’n roll band of the 70s and thats the tea, henny. but in all seriousness. TJR is taking this genre of faux-biographies/interviews and really making it a thing; but more specifically, her thing. between this and ‘the se...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    #ReadWithMC review round-up: https://www.marieclaire.com/culture/a...I used to care when men called me difficult. I really did. Then I stopped. This way is better.this is a breeeeezy zip of a book. it’s written in a gossipy, fragmented way, using snippets of “behind the music”-style interviews to chronicle the rise and fall; the relationships, adventures, and misadventures of a fictional 70s rock band called daisy jones & the six, which is ...

      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 fee...

    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...

    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 ...

    4 stars! Taylor Jenkins Reid always writes the most unique and brilliant stories. Daisy Jones & The Six is a book unlike any I’ve read before. This story follows many characters, but is primarily about Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne, the two lead singers and songwriters of the band. The band came together in the 70’s and that is the decade the story takes place. You get the perspectives of many characters, but thankfully, it was easy to follow. ...

    "I am not a muse. I am the somebody. End of fucking story."I am a gigantic music fan. I was in a band in high school and college, and sing almost everywhere. As much as I love music and lyrics, I'm equally as fascinated by those who make the music and what inspires them to write the songs they do, not to mention the stories of connection and tension and dissension among band members."This obsession was one of the myriad reasons I couldn't wait to...

    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 ...

    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...

    4.5, Reid you've done it again, welcome to my auto-purchase shelf stars!!!Full review featured on my blog Recipe & a Read!Taylor Jenkins Reid has found her niche and let me just say, GAH DAYUM girl can you get it freakin’ done. Having read and absolutely adored The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo last year I couldn’t get my hands on Reid’s next historical fiction novel soon enough.

    4**** He sad, "I'm going to use that in something one day." And he wrote it down on a napkin and put it in his back pocket. I thought to myself, "What the hell makes you think I'm not going to use it in something once day?" But, of course, there it was in his next movie. That's how it was back then. I was just supposed to be the inspiration for some man's great idea.So as 2018 closes, Daisy Jones and The Six was my last book of the year. Daisy Jo...

    I absolutely LOVED this book & I have to admit I was one of those people who immediately went to Spotify to listen to the music only to remember THIS ISNT A REAL BAND. My heart was crushed but I still loved it anyway ;)
