Daisy Jones & the Six
fullDescription
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.
"I devoured Daisy Jones & The Six in a day, falling head over heels for it. Daisy and the band captured my heart."—Reese Witherspoon (Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine book pick)

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 'n' 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.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This is--to state it plainly--a remarkable audiobook. It recounts the story of a seventies rock band's meteoric rise to fame and mysterious fall from grace. Written as a transcribed oral history, it lends itself naturally to the audio format. Also, it's narrated by a star-studded full cast. Film and TV actors Jennifer Beals, Benjamin Bratt, Judy Greer, and Pablo Schreiber portray the lead roles, and a host of accomplished audiobook narrators portray the supporting cast. The result is a tapestry of memorable characters with electric chemistry and authentic-sounding relationships. It would be possible, if hard pressed, to choose one or two standout performances. Ultimately, though, the full cast works together in perfect harmony to deliver an unforgettable listening experience. A.T.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
