Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six

I feel like Daisy Jones & The Six is all the book community has been talking about lately. I know it was Reese Witherspoon’s book club pick, and it was my March book from Book of the Month.


 “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 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.

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.” — Goodreads


This was a 4 1/2 star read for me. The whole novel is written in an interview format which felt like a really cool and fresh literary vehicle. Taylor Jenkins Reid managed to write characters who felt so real. I felt like I was reading a literary version of some Behind The Music episode.

I felt so invested in this story. I read for hours at a time and didn’t want to put the book down. I cannot quite put my finger on it but something about this read just felt… special, and I was captivated from page one. This is one of those books I just want everyone else to read just so I can ask if they figure out what is so special about it. Thank you for such a great story, Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Get it on Amazon.
