I'm a little late to the game, but I finally read the much hyped/raved about Daisy Jones & The Six by New York Times Bestselling author, Taylor Jenkins Reid as part of Penguin Random House Canada's book club pick. I'm a big fan of Taylor's novel, Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, however, I'm not a fan of the 70's era of sex, drugs and rock n' roll. (Although, I do like to listen to rock music, just not into the whole 'scene'.) With that being said, I have to admit, that I was reluctant to pick this book up. But boy, was I happy that my reservations were wrong.
Daisy Jones is a young, up and coming musician who has a passion for the music she creates through writing and singing. When an opportunity presents itself to her to open for the hit rock band, The Six, she jumps on it and immerses herself in the roller-coaster world of music, drugs and ever-searching for authentic love; resulting in some unwanted experiences.
What makes this story stand out from the millions of content that takes place in the 70's is the unorthodox style of a fiction novel written in an interview-style format. It gave the story an interesting perspective that caught me off guard - but I love that! The poignant life of Daisy and the members of The Six were beautifully portrayed in this story and was an exhilarating read.
Rating: 4 our 5 stars
