Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their 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.
Also getting noticed is The Six, a band 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 that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.
The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

When you read a book or listen, in this case, that’s outside of your genre and it absolutely blows you away?! That’s exactly what happened with Daisy Jones & The Six. I did not expect to like this one at all, but I loved every single minute of this audiobook.
I am so glad that I dove in and listened to the audio instead of reading. I’m a romance lover through and through, and I truly didn’t think I would have enjoyed this if I chose to listen to the audio.
This story was absolutely everything, the author did a phenomenal job weaving Daisy and the band The Six’s story all into one. With a full cast on the audiobook, you can’t help but just be so enthralled with every character’s story. The band history that Taylor Jenkins Reid comes up with for this book is absolutely insane and it constantly made me question if this was actually a true story. All the Stevie Nicks vibes and was like can it be? Nope, it’s all fiction and that just makes TJR a mastermind in this genre.
To me, this story was absolutely memorable, it’s just one of those that’ll stick with you forever. I can’t say that I loved these characters, but every single one of them had something to bring to the story. Highly recommend the audiobook for anyone that’s been on the fence.
