Hello and welcome!!!
The whole world have probably read this book by now and I am a bit sad I waited this long but I happy I didn’t read any spoilers (so I will try to avoid any important spoilers that made this book so enjoyable)
After reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I couldn’t wait to read this one and I have to say my high hope’s were met.
According to Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six is a fictional oral story of the rise and fall of a 70’s rock band.
Daisy Jones & The Six reveals the truth behind a fictional ’70s rock band’s breakup, and the way Jenkins Reid tells the story via oral history will make you wish that somehow, some way the group could come together in real life.
Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll
Okay, let me get this out of the way, Taylor Jenkins Reid got the stuff!! I have read two books by her and I loved them both so much and would probably fall down the Taylor hole by reading all her books.
Daisy Jones & The Six is about a 70’s rock band (simply put) but it is a lot more.
The Truth of Fiction are the lessons it teaches and emotions it brings to the surface – Aminu J. Azeezat (TheEuphoricZat)
This book starts with a girl Daisy who kind of grew up too quickly roaming the club scenes and even getting into drugs early but there was a lot to her than just drugs and parties.
She, in fact was an inspiration for a lot of songs but she didn’t want to be just an inspiration she wanted to be a singer and songwriter. Then she got signed to a label who at first made her sing songs that she didn’t write and she wasn’t the type of woman to give up (One thing I have noticed about Taylor’s female characters is how strong and yet vulnerable they are, they are not heroic, they are so real and relatable that they inspire women around the world).
She fought them tooth and nail. She was definitely quite beautiful and everyone who saw her was enamoured (almost like Helen of Troy with the absence of killing and the rest)
Then we have two brothers who started out singing and playing a few shows for about 10 people even in pubs and the rest. Then they grew in number and they decided to form a rock band and named themselves The Six with Billy being the leader and singer. He wrote most of their songs and they got signed to a label also and they produced their first album. It did well but not so explosive.
The label decided to do make a collaboration between Daisy Jones and The Six and it reached the top of the Charts and they started thinking of making Daisy Join the Band which resulted in the Band – DAISY JONES AND THE SIX
Then love and devotion is put to the test.When to pick heart or family becomes a battle and you have to pick your wife and Children over the love of your life.
When losing your child clenches your heart and blinds you from love
When being alone was more promising that giving up your career
When being clean and adopting children makes you happy
There were various reasons for the band breaking up but finding solace was their only intent.
This books talks about a lot of things, alcoholism, drug abuse, addiction, sex, love, betrayal, death, marriage, family, commitment, abortion, friendship, withdrawal and even responsibility.
I love the way the story was told and we get to see the whole story from different POVs and in so doing, we get to know more about each character.
It’s kind of like an interview and I am not even going to spoil who was doing the interview. This interview takes place years after the band and even after the loss of a member and even family.
I loved the fact that they actually ended up doing the things they love.
(OKAY IF YOU ARE WITH ME IN WANTING THE AURORA ALBUM, RAISE YOUR HAND 🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️)
