    Description

    A Reese's Book Club + Hello Sunshine on Audible Pick

    "My March pick is here! It’s Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and it ROCKS. Literally. The story centers on the meteoric rise of a rock band in the '70s and its lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne, whose connection is as electric as the music they make together. It’s sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, people!! And the very best part?! Hello Sunshine is turning this into a TV show with Amazon Studios...so stay tuned for more updates!" (Reese Witherspoon)  

    A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup.

    Daisy is a girl coming of age in LA in the late '60s, 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 20, 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 '70s. 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.

    Includes a PDF of song lyrics from the book.

    Commentaires

    “Raw, emotive, and addictively voyeuristic, Daisy Jones & The Six is imbued with the same anguished heart that fuels the very best rock ‘n’ roll. Like my favorite albums, this book will live with me for a very long time.” (Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus)

    “An explosive, dynamite, down-and-dirty look at a fictional rock band told in an interview style that gives it irresistible surface energy...although the real power of this delicious novel is at its tender beating heart. It’s an anthem and a ballad and a marvel.” (Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Perfect Couple

    Please read/listen to this.

    This book caught me by surprise. I’m weary of hyped up books, maybe because I’m scared of being disappointed or maybe because I feel like I never really like books that everyone seem to love. But daisy jones and the six was ... I don’t really have words. But I feel like everyone and anyone can stand to learn something from this book. If not learn at least feel something.

    Do yourself a favour and read it.

    One for the books

    This is such a moving tale. Reid did a beyond phenomenal job being able to capture the perspective of different figurative characters and move you in a way you did not think was possible. Filled with beautiful imagery and words, this makes for my top 10 favorite books of all time.

    A Different Kind of Review

    I have over 500 books in my Audible library, and I can say with confidence that "Daisy Jones and the Six" lands at the top for narration, along with "The Help" and "Outlander". Each narrator perfectly matches his or her character, and each narrator brings life and authenticity to this story.

    That's the good news.

    The bad news is the story itself. Overall, the story falls flat. When you watch a documentary about an actual band or singer, you have the advantage of knowing the music and knowing their singing voices. Without that to fall back on, all the descriptions of melodies and tunes and harmonies seem somewhat useless. As far as the characters, I felt both sympathy and disgust for them. Although the characters are voiced brilliantly, they stay true to the stereotypes you would expect. The endless drug usage became tiresome and I alternated between cheering them on and feeling tired of their dysfunctional lives. This book is much darker than I anticipated.

    The biggest letdown for me, though, was the ending. I loved how some characters found redemption. In other places, I was very much taken aback. SPOILER ALERT: if you are at all sensitive to pro-life issues, avoid this book.

    Although I have read other books by Taylor Jenkins Reid and enjoyed them, this is my third book as part of the Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine reading group and I have not loved any of them; I will, most likely, avoid books marketed as part of this program in the future.

    great book

    honestly when I first started listening for the first 45 minutes or so, it was a little confusing and hard for me to 100% commit to. However, once I recognized the different voices it made it so fun and different to listen to. The voices were on point and sounded just like a movie performing so perfectly. The style if writing made the book very enjoyable and look forward to listening to other titles by the author

    Format breakthrough

    A clip from the NYTimes book review by Eleanor Henderson: "But while it makes for a heady journey through the band’s ascent, the script format inherently limits our access to the characters’ innermost selves. The camera is locked on a tripod, the interviewees confessing their greatest fears and loves in the same shoulders-up shot for much of the novel. After a while, we long to get closer, to hear what the characters aren’t confessing on the record, or to zoom out, to take in more of the decade than its miniature backstage dramas. When only the characters narrate the story, their reminiscences can fall flat."

    The reviewer is clearly referring to the print version here. I think this critique doesn't apply to the audio version with multiple narrators performing the "script." The voices are distinctive and nuanced, and they do provide the listener access to "the characters' innermost selves." Like all good dramatic storytelling, the characters evoke emotion through HOW they express themselves as much as through WHAT they express. That's not available when all you have is words on the page and no authorial intermediary commenting on the characters' inner states and outward behaviors. Others have said it here and on other sites, this book is uniquely suited to audio and takes the audiobook experience to a new level of listener engagement. For me, the story itself is nothing special and does not transcend the familiar tropes about rock stars/bands in the 70s. But the format, voice casting, and performances make it a truly compelling work of audio fiction.

    I wanted to love this book...

    I was so excited when my book club chose this. I love music and strong female leads aren’t especially hard to come by - it seemed perfect! Much of the story is derivative (think “Almost Famous” meets Jen Sincero’s “Don’t Sleep With Your Drummer”), however the ending did have a more original twist, which I did enjoy.

    While so many people are lauding Daisy as a voice of empowered womanhoood I can’t help but wonder what I’m missing. I found her to be weak and scared, turning to substances rather than confronting life’s problems. She did demand what she wanted out of her music and bandmates but went about it in a way that screamed entitlement rather than empowerment. It was all very “I want it now, Daddy” and I found her largely insufferable.

    What a gripping writing style and narration !

    This book grabs you from. Word 1! The story is written in such a way that it feels almost as though you're a part of the book itself. EXCELLENT NARRATION - especially the choice of Jennifer Beales as the main character. It is gripping!

    4.52 stars - top notch audio

    This story takes us back into the 1970s rock scene, and feels entirely authentic. I can’t imagine the print version of this novel is as good as the audiobook. Daisy Jones & The Six is narrated by some of the best narrators in the business, a full cast. This format doesn’t work in some cases, but it certainly does here. The audio version reminds me of a documentary-type memoir told from various perspectives. Still, the story is easy to follow and progresses chronologically. Though it’s a fictional story of a 70s rock band, it feels real. I don't normally give 5 stars in all three categories, but I predict great success for this audiobook. Overall rating: 4.52 stars

    Disappointed.

    Once again I am super disappointed in a Reese Witherspoon book of the month(it’s been pretty hit or miss). I don’t quite understand the hype about some of these books and how they get such high ratings. Additionally, the style of this book is difficult to follow. I tried and tried, but I finally gave up. I thought there would be more of a significant story that would capture my attention, but there really wasn’t anything of interest.

    Gute Geschichte - im Audiobook aber perfekt umgesetzt

    Die Geschichte über eine Rockband in den 70ern ist zwar spannend, aber etwas vorhersehbar. Durch den Interview-Stil, in dem alle Charaktere ihre eigene Stimme bekommen, wird das Ganze aber sehr interessant; die Umsetzung dieses Punktes wirkt im Hörbuch noch besser, da jeder Charakter eine eigene Stimme hat und es wirklich wie ein Hörspiel/Interview wirkt. Sehr cool!!

    Good, but...

    This book just didn't catch me like Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising did. It's still a good book, just not as good as those. I wasn't a big fan of the interview-style, that's probably why it didn't get me so obsessed. Still liked the story, and it's a very interesting idea.

    sehr gut gesprochen, interessante Charaktere!

    Mir hat die Beleuchtung der einzelnen Charaktere sehr gut gefallen :) Vorallem, dass die verschiedenen Figuren dabei von mehreren Sprechern gesprochen wurden hat wirklich zum Gesamt-feeling beigetragen.
    Die Geschichte selber mag nicht wahnsinnig viele Höhepunkte haben und kann an manchen Stellen vielleicht etwas langatmig wirken, die Charaktere haben es jedoch meiner Meinung nach wirklich hörenswert gemacht!

    This book is meant to be an audiobook

    This book has a unique writing style that can best be enjoyed as an audiobook. Even if you might not be into the story, it is a fascinating listen that I can recommend to anyone. What I also liked a lot, is that it was easy to understand for a not native speaker and that when you don't always pay attention, you will still find your way back into the story without doing a rewind.
