It’s the late sixties. Daisy Jones is a beautiful precocious girl with parents who barely
care and the most naturally astounding voice possible. Until now, she’s spent her time sleeping
with rock stars, getting high, and writing. The Six is a pretty well-known rock band, with the
handsome Billy Dunne as the lead singer and groupies, roadies, and drugs galore. At least until
Billy’s girlfriend gets pregnant, and he realizes he needs to sober up and get straight for his
family. Dynamite is the only thing that could happen when they combine. Daisy Jones & The Six
spend months refining their album - though not without issues. However, they are not to be
impeded by relapses, affairs, resentment, and love. When their album releases, it’s the biggest
hit in the country. Yet halfway through their tour, at the height of their fame, the band breaks
apart. And no one really knows why, until now...

This book is super engaging and interesting. It’s easy to understand and quick to
demolish despite its medium size. The writing is interesting, the events hard to predict, and the
twist somewhat shocking. The only faults it has are that it’s not exactly a memorable story
(though it was definitely enjoyable at the time) and I find that the twist near the end feels very
similar to a twist in one of the author’s other novels, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
However, I would nevertheless recommend it to fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, anyone who wants
a novel about creativity, love, drama, and of course rock’n’roll.
