Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six By Taylor Jenkins Reid


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

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they 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.

Another band getting noticed is The Six, 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 the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.



I am not sure why, but the first time I read this, it must have been the multiple characters points of views. The complication of that put me off.

Although listening to this I felt completely different about this audio recording.
The bonus at the end was fab too with the whole music recording of ‘Honeycomb’.

I really enjoyed how it was ‘written’ and the different character voices throughout.
It was an unexpected ending on who was writing this so called biography.

It was so cute the entire process from start to finish. Explaining how this band and Daisy came to form together, their success, the highs and lows and the evolution of each character.

The character of Daisy can be a love and hate mixture depending on your views in terms of how she feels about drugs and love towards particular characters throughout.

Overall, I enjoyed this audio recording and the interesting story technique as it did seem so real.

4/5 Stars
