"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"--… (mais)

It's 1 AM and I'm feeling so many feels about this book. Holy cow, it's good! I'm also super mad that this band doesn't actually exist because I want to listen to their music now. I was so immersed that when I got to the song lyrics, my first instinct was to look up the songs on the internet.

And oh man. That twist towards the end was a gasp out loud moment. And then a gut punch. ( )

[b:Daisy Jones & The Six|40597810|Daisy Jones & The Six|Taylor Jenkins Reid|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1580255154l/40597810._SY75_.jpg|61127102] is a book about a group of people who come together to form what has to be the most stereotypical 70s rock band that has ever existed. Reading this book was like reading fanfiction about Fleetwood Mac circa Rumors. If you're interested in fanfiction about Fleetwood Mac circa Rumors then this is the book for you - the author is talented, the story is well-written, and it would make for a good beach read. I am not all that interested in such a book - hence, my rating. ( )

It has been a while since I read a book that moved me as this one did. Part of it is a question of getting the book at the right time, and another is the novel format and the relatable characters.

The story is not so big on events and happenings, but it is great in characterization and feeling. I could relate to the intensity of feelings, and the vulnerability of the characters. Also there was an element of nostalgia for a bygone era in music history where the cost of creativity and brilliance was extraordinary high, and it took blood, sweat and tears to produce a single record.

The advent of electronic gadgets and mixing software made this process simpler. Musicians can now produce their own music, and it is also easier to churn out a lot of meaningless songs that have the longevity of soap bubbles. People keep coming back to the old songs because of nostalgia and because the songs used to mean something, and the slow process of writing them made them grow into portraits of universal longing.

Daisy Jones and the Six is the imaginary band that people still remember, decades after their sudden breakup. It is written in the form of an interview with the different characters relating the story of their rise and breakup from their varying (and sometimes conflicting) perspectives. Throughout the telling you get a glimpse of their struggles, with emotional issues, with drugs and addiction and with their intensity. The structure makes their public struggle come alive, and reminds us of our own struggles in life.

I paraphrase another reviewer when I say here, that this book does what great fiction should. It makes you feel, and relate. The characters are brilliant because their pains and struggles are so relatable. They could have easily been my favourite band too. ( )

I love when a book completely blasts past all your expectations and captures you, body and soul.

This was never going to be a book I would normally pick up. It was overhyped when it was published and, in the bookstore where I work, it seemed to be marketed to late-20s/early-30s women, because that was who I saw constantly buying it.

But I kept coming back to the summary and its allusions to a Fleetwood Mac type band building to their Rumours type album and that both fascinated me and turned me off. Because the real story is absolutely nuts, so how in the hell could someone possibly do it better, let alone improve on it?

Still, I had an opportunity to get it on audio, so I did...then I promptly sat on it for the better part of the year because...well, because it couldn't be good.

I finally bit the bullet two days ago and...well...damn. I was instantly captivated by the narrative style Reid chose, and the interesting mix of characters.

That being said, while it's pretty much a bent and twisted up retelling of Fleetwood Mac and Rumours, it's also so much more than that. Reid brings in the sibling rivalry of Creedence Clearwater Revival, and the frustrations of George Harrison's time in the Beatles (ignoring his songs and telling him how to play his licks) and every other band member who had as much, if not more talent than the stars of the band (think Mike Campbell, Stan Lynch, and Benmont Tench from Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, for example). She incorporates all the drive, lust, passion, talent, creativity, jealousy, anger, and myriad addictions that almost every superstar band has ever gone through, and seemlessly and effectively dumps them into the story until the Six...along with Daisy Jones...becomes a powderkeg.

Yet again, it's more than just that, too. It's the story of creativity, of finding that perfect sweet storm of conflict and emotion that fires up the artists' creative centres and unleashes them. It puts a voice to the rule, "if what you're writing doesn't make you uncomfortable, you're not digging deep enough."

At the same time, this story has a lot to say about addiction. Addiction to drugs and alcohol. Addiction to fame. Addiction to the forces of creativity. And addiction to both the right person...and the wrong one.

And lastly, there is great insight in these pages, in the hints of lyrics that we're given, into the nature of love and longstanding relationships, as well as the passion and fire of those that burn quickly, burn hot, then die quickly.

Honestly, I can't say enough about this book. I expected to loathe it, and likely set it down without finishing it, and instead, it's one of the top five books I'll read this year, easily.

I know this book got to me when, as the story progresses through the making of their Aurora album, all I could think of was, damn, I really want to hear this album. ( )

Spring 2020;

I heard about this book a lot toward the end of last year as people's list were coming out and it stayed on my radar to look about for sales etc, and happily enough it did pop up. I started reading this one over Christmas break and then finished it in chunks during lunch duty at work.

I really loved that the format of this book (told in the style of interview transcriptions) ended up being as flawless as it did, because I had concerns at the beginning, but I got entirely swept away in it. I love the tension between brothers. I loved a double love story that for once took the path unchosen in almost all literature, and how it ends up at the end, with its hint without reveal. I loved the twist about who the documentary person was, which was revealed at the point I had already accepted that wasn't coming.

I think anyone who loved the heydey of music in the 70's & 80's, the lifestyles of rockers, professional and personal, the unexpected paths of love stories and people choosing their lives and loves the way they want them, not the way the world writes them, should jump on this now.
