Everyone knows DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.

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 ’n’ 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.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band 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 that 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.

Daisy Jones & The Six (Taylor Jenkins Reid) Book Reviews

Beautifully writtenI had a very hard time turning away. The formatting is wonderful, which helps create a beautiful story that you can’t help but love. Daisy Jones and the band have touched my heart and will definantly touch yours too!.Score: 5/5

One of the worst books I’ve readThe writing was awful. I am sorry if that’s mean. I wanted to like this book because it’s in the Reese Witherspoon book club but it was just bad. The writing, the plot, the characters, it just didn’t do it for me. I’ve read several good books by this author but this just wasn’t good. A lot of people have recommended this book and I just don’t get it. I wouldn’t recommend. I’m sorry just being honest.Score: 1/5

Just YES!Taylor Jenkins Reid really switched up the tempo with this book, it was so refreshing. As a product of the 90’s it was great getting lost in the 70’s with rock and all its wonder. Definitely the highlight of my summer reads!.Score: 5/5

BeautifulThe audio book is outstanding! highly recommend listening to it while reading along to the actual book. what. an. experience. one of my fav books of the year hands down. read it..Score: 5/5

I wish it was realI loved that the author made me feel like I was watching, “Behind the Music” in the early 2000’s. I wanted the band and the music to be real. A movie or show should be made. If anyone should, Juliet Simms would make a great Daisy Jones..Score: 5/5

Blew me awayI’m blown away! This was so enthralling I could not put it down. Loved the writing style, characters and different points of view. A definite Almost Famous vibe. It never got boring!! A book I couldn’t wait to finish, but yet did not want it to end!.Score: 5/5

I loved it!I typically don’t like books written in non traditional ways but this one really sucked me in! It flowed well and I couldn’t put it down. I love when books pull you into the story, make you feel like you’re living it, and this book did just that. It’s different and a nice change from traditional romance novels. But, it may not be your cup of tea and that’s okay..Score: 5/5

Everyone has to read this bookI am not joking when i say that this book gives me life. i was instantly hooked from the very beginning. the writing is a different format (told in a documentary style) but i absolutely loved it. there was no slow parts (because of the documentary style) and i just loved the story. the writing was beautiful and it was just such an amazing book that after you finish you just sit there for a couple of days figuring out what to read next because nothing can come close to this book. all good things from me.Score: 5/5

All the starsThat’s 3 five star books in a row that I have read by this author.Score: 5/5

Googled Daisy JonesI dove into this book knowing full well that the band wasn’t real... and yet somehow midway I was trying to google Daisy and Billy Dunne!! I wanted to see everyone’s faces so bad since I felt like I already had a mental visual of what they could possibly look like. I stopped googling their names and reread the introduction just so I didn’t feel like I was losing my mind. But wow! What a cool way to write a book! And how realistic with how people remember their stories... I can’t wait for the next book set in the 80’s!! I hope she writes it like this one because I was hooked..Score: 5/5

Lovely read for anyone who loves music.The story builds - you have to stay with it. Character development was slower than I like. Lacked lush details, with that this book would pop into the brilliant category. Overall a solid read with a few gripping, teary eyed lines. Lyrics at the end were a fantastic touch!.Score: 4/5

I wish this was a real band!Loved this book. Fell in love with the characters immediately. I figured this was loosely based on FM but I found myself wishing that Daisy Jones was real so that I could google her and listen to all of her music! Looking forward to the mini series ❤️.Score: 5/5

Unique and thought provokingHands down my favorite Reese’s Book Club selection. The format of this book is interviews; it’s an imagination and clever way to structure the novel. Filled with themes that are relevant and present in today’s world. The characters and story line seem so real, you will forget they aren’t a real..Score: 5/5

Daisy Jones and the SixI loved this book right from the start, the author’s writing style, the book’s documentary feel, the quirky yet believable characters, the depiction of love, marriage and motherhood -the good, the bad and the ugly of it all.

A made for TV rock bioAnybody who’s read any rock n’ roll biographies or memoirs will instantly recognize this as a PG-rated, squeaky clean version. The author certainly didn’t do too much homework into how rock musicians actually talk about music (or at least it didn’t show). Sorta like a rock biopic a la Walk the Line; a glossed up Johnny and June for a wider audience. Decent “beach read”, and there are a couple of really touching moments at the end, but definitely lacks a true edge and authenticity..Score: 3/5

Loved This!If you’re a fan of the movie “Almost Famous”, you’ll devour this book just as I had. It’s written in interview form which I had never come across before (at least, not of any interest to me). The idea captured my attention, but the dialogue and the different characters sold me. I absolutely fell in love with all of the characters despite their flaws. This book is magic - and I don’t use that word lightly! 😉.Score: 5/5

Unique and captivating story of bandOverhyped but creatively written. Love the interview format and the imagery of this book. You can hear the music and smell the smoke of this rock band. Second half of the book it picked up the pace, and I’m excited it’s being developed into a mini series..Score: 4/5

Could barely make it through.I do not understand the good reviews about this book. It was an awful read. I know I am in the minority as far as this book is concerned. I felt it was trite and had very little substance. Really, a rock band with conflict....something I never heard about..Score: 1/5

I felt like I was deep into bingeing a documentary show about the band.Such a unique way of telling a story, I felt like I was deep into bingeing a documentary show about the band. The story felt a bit predictable and repetitive at times, but the last couple of chapters are what bring it all together to make it such a great story and what really made me love it. The twist at the end, the perfect back and forth of perspectives happening in real time that brought it all to a close leaving you full of feels. *Chefs kiss*.Score: 4/5

Daisy Jones & The sSixBrilliant! As the band broke through into the big time, I felt the thrill of their expectations. As Daisy and Billy mixed ambition, brooding love and great talent, I felt the magic. Without hearing a note I felt the music - heard the songs of Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane and Fleetwood Mac..Score: 5/5

Read it nowThis book. One of the most incredible pieces of fiction I’ve read in quite some time. At one point, I fully believed they were a real band, real persons, and all I wanted was to search for their songs on Spotify. The characters are relatable—even though we may not all be rock n’ roll sensations—making you feel how genuine and human they really seem. There’s something anybody can connect with here. Did I mention how creative the author’s style is? If Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne were real people, I’d be one of their biggest fans—if I’m not already..Score: 5/5

DisappointingI read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and was so excited to devour this book as well. But I found myself disappointed by a tame story taking place in the era of classic rock. This book had a lot of potential because a lot of people are fascinated by the era in which it takes place. But, I found the book made me feel anything but nostalgic. The main characters I found to be stagnant, and many of the secondary characters are forgettable. I also couldn’t get into the writing style (written as an oral history), but maybe that’s a preference. True fans of classic rock really won’t find themselves liking this book. It doesn’t paint a realistic picture of what life was like for a musician on top of the world, specifically when it comes to Billy. All in all, you could have told me this book was written by a fifteen year old, and I would have believed you. Really disappointed..Score: 3/5

Uniquely WrittenI loved the creative writing style and vary perspectives of this book. Totally sucked me in. The story is well rounded and multifaceted, highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

Fighting the darknessA beautiful take on complex topics of love, lies, and the power within ourselves to fight the darkness that knocks on the door in the form of what we don’t want to admit. Easy quick read, with enough emotion to wonder where you fit in between daisy and billy, and how it applies to your own life..Score: 5/5
