Book Review: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Book: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Genre: Literary Fiction

Rating:  ★ ★ ★ 

Often we'll read non fiction books and say... wow! That reads like fiction! Well this book is just the opposite... it's a fiction book that reads like non fiction! So very interesting!

It's set up in an interview style, as if a reporter is talking to and compiling the answers of, all the people involved in this story. And the story is the rise and fall of a very famous band called Daisy Jones and The Six during the seventies. A fictional band... remember. But it feels so real that it makes one wish for pictures and the desire to go and google them and see what they look like, and find their songs and listen to them! LOL!

Anyway, it centers around the leader of The Six... and Daisy Jones, both very interesting characters, with lots and lots of flaws. So  many flaws in fact that I wasn't sure I even liked them very much. Most of the people in this story are very selfish, which makes me want to shake them up and say what are you thinking? 

Still, you can't help but get attached to them and wonder how it's all going to go down, which, if you know the normal course of many bands, you can probably predict. 

Anyway, it was a fun read and enjoyable just because it was so different. 

Let me know if you've read it and what you think... or if you pick it up and give it a try. But remember... it's a FICTIONAL band!

(The author does say she based some of it from the story of Fleetwood Mac... so maybe some of it is true? Ish?)
