Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.
Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
Then, on 12 July 1979, Daisy Jones walked barefoot onto the stage at Chicago Stadium. And it all came crashing down.
Everyone was there.
Everyone remembers it differently.
Nobody knew why they split. 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.
*Behind the Scenes*
This is the story of a fictional rock band based in the 70’s. They are called ‘The Six’ I listened to the Audiobook and feel that it makes sense because there are multiple points of view and each member plus additional players form the cast. Because each person has their own voice rather than one person attempting to cover all the voices it had an authentic feel about it.
The band is not quite there with the lead Billy writing their songs and having the biggest say in the group. At the same time another artist Daisy Jones is starting to make music. A decision is made that Daisy joins the group for one or two songs and it changes the dynamics of the group.
Soon they are Daisy Jones & The Six and they are making hit after hit, then something happens that changes the band forever
We get to see a lot of the back biting and tensions that go on behind the scenes as well as personal relationships and the drugs etc.
Taylor Jenkins Reid has created a group that feels real and the support members of the group often get a raw deal.
Looking forward to watching the series which may play out better on screen
Wow, what a really interesting style and format this was. I believe the audio book would be better then the actual book, the narration was executed perfectly and I felt a lot more into the characters hearing the different actors voices.
The story became a little slow toward the middle, and the reason the band broke up wasn’t as amazing as I’d thought it would be, but overall I really enjoyed this!
This book is it perfect book for teens and young adults
