Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.
From the moment Daisy walked barefoot on to the stage at the Whisky, she and the band were a sensation. Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
This is the story of their incredible rise: the desire, the rivalry - and the music.
Then, on 12 July 1979, Daisy Jones and the Six split up.
Nobody knew why. Until now...

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Trying to one-up the audacious lives of ‘70s rock stars isn’t easy, but Taylor Jenkins Reid has created a charismatic band that lives just as hard as the real ones. Rockers Daisy Jones & the Six explode onto L.A.’s hip, debauched music scene before imploding just as dramatically. Framed as an oral history, Jenkins Reid’s novel is a lot of fun, but the audiobook is a bona fide party—it’s read by 21 actors, including Jennifer Beals and Pablo Schreiber as star-crossed bandmates Daisy and Billy. This sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll story is as fun, juicy and such a joy to hear.
Didn’t love it.
I found it really hard to like this book. I only got 80% through before I decided not to finish it. It just didn’t interest me personally.
