Description

A Reese's Book Club + Hello Sunshine on Audible Pick

"My March pick is here! It’s Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and it ROCKS. Literally. The story centers on the meteoric rise of a rock band in the '70s and its lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne, whose connection is as electric as the music they make together. It’s sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, people!! And the very best part?! Hello Sunshine is turning this into a TV show with Amazon Studios...so stay tuned for more updates!" (Reese Witherspoon)  

A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in LA in the late '60s, 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 20, 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 '70s. 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.

Includes a PDF of song lyrics from the book.

Ce que les critiques disent

“Raw, emotive, and addictively voyeuristic, Daisy Jones & The Six is imbued with the same anguished heart that fuels the very best rock ‘n’ roll. Like my favorite albums, this book will live with me for a very long time.” (Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus)

“An explosive, dynamite, down-and-dirty look at a fictional rock band told in an interview style that gives it irresistible surface energy...although the real power of this delicious novel is at its tender beating heart. It’s an anthem and a ballad and a marvel.” (Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Perfect Couple

tears

This book was riveting, passionate, destructive, and beautifully written. Everyone really brought all the characters to life. Judy Greer - well, she is once of my favorites. Jennifer Beals - woman, you have always been a rock star in my universe. And the guys... Eddie was a brilliant character. Graham had my heart from the first chapter.

Listen to this book. It is so worth it.

Waiting for something to happen...nothing did.

I found this story to be a tedious gnashing of teeth. It's a story (not much of a plot) about a group of fortunate and talented people, most of whom seem to be addicts and alcoholics, with narration bouncing back and forth between characters so much I sometimes felt nauseous. They wallow through out the book complaining about some important personal issues but mostly how unfair life is for them. I did not enjoy the story, although the performances were well done.

Loved it!! A must listen!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I downloaded this book. I got it because it had come up on a recommended list. I am not sorry I did! It is a great story, read wonderfully by some big name actors! It was one of those stories that made me sad when it was over. Highly recommend it.

Everything about this was amazing and lived up to the hype - to the point where I had to Google if Daisy Jones & the Six was a rock band I just hadn't heard of. An amazing first audio book and definitely won't be my last.

I couldn’t stop listening

Once I started listening to this I didn’t want to stop. I was completely sucked in to the story. The voices and characters were so rich, the story lines for each character so perfect. I was completely drawn into that rock n roll world. Made me think of Fleetwood Mac and other great 70’s bands. I really enjoyed all the different voices, brought such a great new level to the story as opposed to one or two narrators using different accents or octaves in their own voice. I am actually sad the book is over.

One for the books

This is such a moving tale. Reid did a beyond phenomenal job being able to capture the perspective of different figurative characters and move you in a way you did not think was possible. Filled with beautiful imagery and words, this makes for my top 10 favorite books of all time.

great book

honestly when I first started listening for the first 45 minutes or so, it was a little confusing and hard for me to 100% commit to. However, once I recognized the different voices it made it so fun and different to listen to. The voices were on point and sounded just like a movie performing so perfectly. The style if writing made the book very enjoyable and look forward to listening to other titles by the author

A Different Kind of Review

I have over 500 books in my Audible library, and I can say with confidence that "Daisy Jones and the Six" lands at the top for narration, along with "The Help" and "Outlander". Each narrator perfectly matches his or her character, and each narrator brings life and authenticity to this story.

That's the good news.

The bad news is the story itself. Overall, the story falls flat. When you watch a documentary about an actual band or singer, you have the advantage of knowing the music and knowing their singing voices. Without that to fall back on, all the descriptions of melodies and tunes and harmonies seem somewhat useless. As far as the characters, I felt both sympathy and disgust for them. Although the characters are voiced brilliantly, they stay true to the stereotypes you would expect. The endless drug usage became tiresome and I alternated between cheering them on and feeling tired of their dysfunctional lives. This book is much darker than I anticipated.

The biggest letdown for me, though, was the ending. I loved how some characters found redemption. In other places, I was very much taken aback. SPOILER ALERT: if you are at all sensitive to pro-life issues, avoid this book.

Although I have read other books by Taylor Jenkins Reid and enjoyed them, this is my third book as part of the Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine reading group and I have not loved any of them; I will, most likely, avoid books marketed as part of this program in the future.

top notch audio......a star is born

This story takes us back into the 1970s rock scene, and feels entirely authentic. I can’t imagine the print version of this novel is as good as the audiobook. Daisy Jones & The Six is narrated by some of the best narrators in the business, a full cast. This format doesn’t work in some cases, but it certainly does here. The audio version reminds me of a documentary-type memoir told from various perspectives. Still, the story is easy to follow and progresses chronologically. Though it’s a fictional story of a 70s rock band, it feels real. I don't normally give 5 stars in all three categories, but I predict great success for this audiobook. Overall rating: 4.72 stars

What a gripping writing style and narration !

This book grabs you from. Word 1! The story is written in such a way that it feels almost as though you're a part of the book itself. EXCELLENT NARRATION - especially the choice of Jennifer Beales as the main character. It is gripping!

Rich full of life and so real !

So I know this was a work of fiction and I was in High School during the time frame. So I kept thinking, I don’t remember the song Honeycomb and wait What does Daisy really look like?
I truly believed in all these people, beautiful story telling!!
Thank you!!

Disappointed.

Once again I am super disappointed in a Reese Witherspoon book of the month(it’s been pretty hit or miss). I don’t quite understand the hype about some of these books and how they get such high ratings. Additionally, the style of this book is difficult to follow. I tried and tried, but I finally gave up. I thought there would be more of a significant story that would capture my attention, but there really wasn’t anything of interest.

Hard not to love Daisy Jones & the Six

I was instantly sucked into this rock n roll love story filled with strong women. I loved the way each character had their own voice. I’ll definitely be checking out more of Taylor Jenkins Reid. Now how to get a copy of the album Aurora?

Underwhelmed but not completely disappointed

So I thought I was going to take a step out of my normal genre of historical fiction - but I guess I really didn't. It did really feel like the 70's and I loved the format the author chose to tell the story of Daisy Jones and The Six - a documentary. Very unique and for an audio listener it was great since the person talking was identified so no need to try and keep characters straight at the beginning. However, I really expected a little more meat to the "story". This seems like a real tame story for the rock n roll era of the 70's but it did keep me entertained enough to keep listening. I am a little underwhelmed, given the raving reviews, of the story itself. The narration was top notch, very well done. Worth a credit and a home in my library, but not by much.

I wanted to love this book...

I was so excited when my book club chose this. I love music and strong female leads aren’t especially hard to come by - it seemed perfect! Much of the story is derivative (think “Almost Famous” meets Jen Sincero’s “Don’t Sleep With Your Drummer”), however the ending did have a more original twist, which I did enjoy.

While so many people are lauding Daisy as a voice of empowered womanhoood I can’t help but wonder what I’m missing. I found her to be weak and scared, turning to substances rather than confronting life’s problems. She did demand what she wanted out of her music and bandmates but went about it in a way that screamed entitlement rather than empowerment. It was all very “I want it now, Daddy” and I found her largely insufferable.
