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 ’n’ 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.

    This book is ALL THAT. it’s amazing. It’s in depth, it’s gutsy, it’s funny, it’s GUT WRENCHING SADNESS, it’s surprising (juicy plot twist btw) and entertaining, it’s rock n roll. I’ve never been a “yay 70s” kinda girl, but this book CHANGED me. I will now scour the library shelves for more 1970s-based books. It was that good. It’s in an interview format, which is super cool and great because it shows you all of the character’s perspectives and shines lights on their flaws and thought processes. If you’re considering reading this, please put down your phone right now and read it, iTS THAT GOOD. Ms. Taylor knows what she’s doing.
  • enjoyable and easy to read.

    I thought this was a perfect book for reading on the beach.
  • Huge fan, but…..

    By little freep
    Struggled with the “interview style” format, and after 200+ pages, called it quits. Not sure why the entire book was written like this, regardless, did not enjoy,
  • in love.

    I enjoyed it!
  • Book was written terribly

    By Hendy_Tendy97
    Was very hard to get through I didn’t like how it was written and there was just nothing exciting about it.
  • Good but not great!

    TJR is my new favorite writer. I love her style. I love her story telling. You can tell she put a great deal of research into the music industry to make it feel real. I would have given it 4 stars, however, my ADHD brain could NOT get behind the interview style writing. It almost gave me a headache. Others love it though! I did also just come from reading Seven Husbands which I gave 5 stars so I think this book had a lot to live up to. I also don’t LOVE how it ended. There was so much built up tension and craziness that the way it ended felt anti climatic. All in all. Would recommend to a friend. Can’t wait to compare to the show.

    As a major fan of 70’s music this was a blast to read. The author does a wonderful job of weaving all the internal love stories and still brings out rock n roll. And how do you not love Daisy.
  • The beginning… the middle… THE END!!!

    Having general knowledge of what went on during the “Rumours” era of Fleetwood Mac provides a clear timeline of how the story will start, the drama and complicated love that will occur in the middle, and the sudden but expected ending of it all; but we, the audience, do not know the in between periods; the fights, the intimacy- that is not shared with the audience. Is any of this relevant or true to the band? No, they just provided the structure of how crazy rock n’ roll and it’s industry was in the 70’s. Taylor Jenkins Reid provided the story.
  • Incredible book!

    By NinaRizzo
    I absolutely love this story. TJR blows me away with how amazing of a storyteller she is. I read this after watching the show but wish I got to read it before I watched because it was so good! 5 stars for sure.
