Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, read by Sara Arrington, Jennifer Beals, Arthur Bishop, Fred Berman, Benjamin Bratt, Jonathan Davis, Ari Fliakos, Holter Graham, Judy Greer, January Lavoy, Robinne Lee, Peter Larkin, Henry Leyva, P.J. Ochlan, Robert Petkoff, Alex Reid, Pablo Schreiber, Brendan Wayne, Julia Whelan, Nancy Wu and Oliver Wyman.

Everyone knows Daisy Jones and 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.

Bonus downloadable PDF included.

un peu "overhyped" comme on dit mais ça s'écoute

J'ai bien aimé ce récit même si personnellement je déteste tout ce qui est en lien avec la musique, surtout le rock et je n'en écoute pratiquement pas. Je l'ai choisi à cause du précédent livre de l'auteur "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" qui m'avait agréablement surprise.

Je dirais qu'on retrouve le style de l'auteure dans ce nouveau roman.

La narration se prête étonnamment bien au livre audio et c'est un full cast donc on a une voix par personnage. C'est comme une interview géante pour revenir sur l'expérience de la troupe de rock. Chaque personnage donne son souvenir avec ses impressions personnelles, c'est très chargé en émotion.

Franchement, le récit est plutôt bien fait, on s'y croirait mais par contre il y a beaucoup de redites sur la drogue notamment. Je n'ai pas du tout aimé le personnage de Daisy Jones. Mais on se laisse prendre au jeu, vraiment. Donc je suis allée au bout.

Les narrateurs sont étonnants, parfois on sent leur voix se briser, ils ont conservé les souffles et soupirs et malgré le nombre de voix on s'y retrouve parce que leur nom est annoncé en début de chapitre.

More than just an AudiIo book

Can’t recommend this enough. Story draws you in and the multiple character parts in this version are so well cast and it feels more like an audio film than anything. I could not stop listening.

Cheesy

I listen to a lot of music biography audiobooks, and this popped up and it had good reviews, but it plays to music biz stereotypes, and the voices and accents of the actors sound modern not 60s/70s. It's pretty cheesy, If you are vaguely knowledgeable or care about the music of this time, then it probably isn't for you. I think Amazons algorithms got it wrong when they pointed it in my direction.

Broke my heart in the best way

I’m not a music person. I used to be though. At first I thought I’ll skip this book despite the hype because I didn’t really like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Jenkins Reid’s previous novel).

This however, really truly blew my socks off. I felt I was in my twenties again, following a band and wanting to be in a band. If you think this is about music, you’re right. But it’s so much more than that. It’s about unrequited love, about saving yourself, about soulmates, and so much more. I loved it to my core. I bought a physical copy to keep in my library just so I can relive the feeling I get hanging out with Daisy Jones and The Six.

Choosing to listen to the book REALLY ‘amplified’ the experience. The book is written in oral history form, and it’s the best format for listening via audiobook.
