Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This book format is completely different from anything I’ve ever read leisurely. It’s in an oral-history format, kind of like reading a conversational interview except it includes a lot of different characters. Reid does a great job developing the characters in this format, I thought I would get lost but the personalities really came through and it read very easily. The book is based in the 70’s and revolves around a rock ‘n’ roll band. Daisy grows up in LA on The Strip surrounded by drugs and men with parents that don’t seem to bat an eye when she leaves home for days at a time. Daisy is drop-dead gorgeous, has a contagious carefree personality, but most of all is a naturally talented singer and songwriter. The Six is a rising rock band with Billy Dunne as the face. They’re gaining momentum when their agent decides that he should unite forces and have Daisy Jones become a part of The Six. After some angst, the band becomes Daisy Jones & The Six and we’re taken on a rollercoaster of success, love, loss, and growth. Reid’s ability to tell the story so gracefully had me tearing through the pages. Seeing the story unfold before the eyes of each character give this book such a unique quality that you need to get your hands on.
