Sharing is caring!

Daisy Jones and The Six book was released in 2019 and is now a huge Amazon Prime TV series, produced by Reese Witherspoon.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is such a popular romance and general fiction author and is fast becoming one of my favourites.

I read Malibu Rising during a summer holiday in 2021 and I absolutely loved it. That was my first Taylor Jenkins Reid and I was instantly hooked! I also really enjoyed The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Carrie Soto is Back.

Daisy Jones and The Six: Plot

Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six. They were THE band of the 1970s and their sound defined an era. Their albums were massive hits and they played sold-out arenas across the country.

Then, on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down.

They were lovers, friends and brothers, but there was also animosity, resentment and heartache. This is the story of their legendary rise and irrevocable fall. A story of ambition, desire, heartbreak and music.

Nobody knows why they split…until now. A series of interviews are conducted with members of the band and others who were there during those heady years. Everyone remembers differently.

Daisy Jones and The Six: My Opinion

This was quite unlike any other novel I’ve read. It’s not written in a traditional novel format. It’s written as interviews with various members of the band and those who knew them. I found it so clever to read from all the different perspectives and I liked how those viewpoints altered. Everyone seemed to remember the events slightly differently.

Considering there’s quite a large cast of characters, the characterisation was absolutely brilliant. Each had their own unique voice and I was never confused about who was who. Taylor Jenkins Reid has a real talent for creating flawed, vulnerable characters that I really root for. Daisy was by no means perfect but I just loved her.

The unusual format could make it hard to make the story compelling but that certainly wasn’t the case here. I was utterly captivated by the characters and felt transported to the 1970s. I felt like I was right there with them.

I also loved the descriptions of the music. I could almost hear the songs and I enjoyed how the lyrics all added so much meaning to the story.
