Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a very unique book and not like any other book I’ve read before. The way it’s written from a variety of perspectives at the same time keeps it interesting and makes you want to continue to read as much as you can in one sitting.
About Daisy Jones & The Six
Daisy Jones & The Six caught my eye because it was one of Reese Witherspoon’s picks for her book club. Because I love Reese and everything she does, I had to read it.
It was released in March of 2019 and all the big names and publications raved about it, so no wonder it’s being turned into a show that will air on Amazon. Oh yeah, it was also a New York Times bestseller.
Taylor Jenkins Reid is the acclaimed author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (which I LOVED!), One True Loves, Maybe in Another Life, After I Do, and Forever, Interrupted.

Daisy Jones & The Six Book Summary
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 ’n’ 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.
My Book Review for Daisy Jones & The Six
Daisy Jones & The Six was written in a very unique way where the author makes you think you’re reading a non-fiction book.
The book is written from a reporter’s perspective who gets all of her information to put the story together by the many characters in the book through a series of interviews. The entire book is those interviews.
Just like in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, there is a very cool surprise you didn’t see coming toward the end.
If this were a movie, it would be A Star is Born. I got a lot of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga vibes reading this book. But… it is going to be a show on Amazon and I can’t wait to watch it and hear the music since the music is a big part of the book.
I did not listen to the audio version, but a friend of mine did and she said there were some pretty big names recording the character’s voices. (I honestly didn’t know this was a thing until now.) To see who voiced the audiobook, click here.
My Daisy Jones & The Six Book Recommendation
If you are someone who likes music or grew up in the 70s, I bet you would like this book.
If you enjoyed A Star is Born, you will probably love this book.
My Daisy Jones & The Six Rating
