#AudiobookReview – Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid #DaisyJones&TheSix #Amazing #NewFavourite #BuyItNow πŸŽ§πŸŽ§πŸŽ§

unnamedAbout the Book: “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.”

My Review

Wow what an incredible audiobook! This is a new all time favourite audiobook and one that I’ll definitely be listening to again!

I remember all the rave reviews for this book last year. I added it to my Goodreads, but then the hype didn’t let up and it started to put me off. I forgot about it for a while and then it popped up again and I thought I’d give the audiobook a try, as it felt like that would be the best format for me.

Well what I can say, except it really does deserve al the hype! I really felt like I was listening to a documentary about this amazing band from the 70s, that’s how good the writing and narration was. The voice actors were phenomenal reading their parts, well performing really. I loved all the emotion and intonation they put into their parts, they really did sound like former musicians talking about their past lives in the band.

There’s a pivotal conversation near the end of the book, between two characters. My goodness it just was so tender, so gracious, how could it have just been fiction and not a real conversation between two real people? That’s how powerful the writing was!

And the songs how can I not mention the songs they wrote that became best sellers? I would love to hear those all songs and I really want to buy a band T-shirt. πŸ˜€

Seriously if you haven’t listened to this one yet, you’re really missing out!

  1. I am thrilled to pieces that you are a Daisy Jones fan!! It is being adapted into a series and I am kind of nervous about it. On one hand I would love to see this book come to life, on the other hand I have my doubts that they could do it justice. We shall see…

  2. Fab review! It makes me so happy that you enjoyed Daisy Jones as much as I did… I think it’s one of the few books that makes me want to give audiobooks another go. And I totally wish the songs would be real and I wouldn’t say no to a band shirt either! xx

  3. I’m really happy that you enjoyed this one Nicki. I got the audiobook from the library, listened to the first couple of chapters and just could not get into it. Not sure if it is me, or what was happening in my life at the time. I think I will try it again, as I love your review of the audiobook, but will make sure I am in the right frame of mind for it.

      1. I already have it on kindle but I might check out how much it is to add the audible as well – I love that they do that πŸ˜€ I do love an audiobook! πŸ˜€
