PUBLISHERS BLURB

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six.

They sold out arenas from coast to coast.

Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy.

But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

This is the whole story, right from the beginning: the sun-bleached streets, the grimy bars on the Sunset Strip, knowing Daisy’s moment was coming. Relive the euphoria of success and experience the terror that nothing will ever be as good again. Take the uppers so you can keep on believing, take the downers so you can sleep, eventually. Wonder who you are without the drugs or the music or the fans or the family that prop you up. Make decisions that will forever feel tough. Find beauty where you least expect it. Most of all, love like your life depends on it and believe in whatever it is you’re fighting for.

It’s a true story, though everyone remembers the truth differently.

MY REVIEW

This is the first book by Taylor Jenkins Reid I have read and I was drawn to this by the official blurb and the groovy covers if I’m honest.

Set in the sixties, and shows the music scene as a life of sex, drugs and rock and roll. It’s told in a series of interviews from different perspectives of various people both in the band and those close to them. 

It begins in 1965 with a coming of age tale of Daisy and her intent on singing in clubs, her voice and looks get her invited to join bands. It continues through the years to the disbanding of Daisy Jones & The Six.

The story moves at quite a pace and builds a slightly frenzied atmosphere through the stores of the band members. Great writing which captures the atmosphere of the swinging sixties, totally entertaining and believable.

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
