Book Review - Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Daisy is a young girl coming of age while living in L.A. in the late sixties. She is sneaking into clubs, doing drugs, and sleeping with rock stars. She finds the sex and drugs to be thrilling but, she really wants to sing. When Daisy turns twenty, she gets noticed for her voice along with her untamed beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Around the same time Daisy is getting her big break, a band led by Billy Dunne called The Six, has also started becoming popular. While on their first tour, Billy's girlfriend, Camila, finds out she is pregnant and Billy is unable to deal with the pressures of fatherhood and fame. Billy finds himself struggling and goes off on the deep end.

When Daisy and Billy crosses paths everyone can see that there is charged energy between the two of them. Their producer realizes that together they will achieve success that will help them climb the charts and become rock legends.

I heard many good things about  this novel and I am familiar with the author. I thought the book was an okay read. While the narration told as a documentary style was interesting, it got boring after awhile. I felt like there was barely any story and sometimes, there was too many people to keep track of. I had a hard time relating or caring for any of the characters. I did like the twist at the end but, I am not sure I would read another book if it was done this way again.
