Daisy Jones & The Six

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Three little things loosely related to Daisy Jones & The Six:

* I don’t think there is book that I have had in my hands so many times before actually buying it (the Kindle edition that is) as this one. There always was a pull towards it, but it never seemed hard enough. I’m very glad I finally did though.

* I just realized I’ve probably spend more time reading about fake 70s bands than actual bands. And it is such a shame you never get to hear the tracks they wrote. (For those interested, I also recommend The Vinyl Detective series for additional fake bands to read about).

* Last month I read The 7.5 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, and interestingly in the UK edition Evelyn only dies 7 times. It turned out that was for marketing reasons because of an earlier work of Taylor Jenkins Read – The 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.

– And now for something slightly resembling a review: For me, this was one of the quickest reads of the year so far. I really liked the style – it’s basically a collection from interviews between the narrator and the different people involved with the band. These are mixed together and this gave a very nice dynamic that made me want to continue reading. I particularly liked that since these events took place a long time ago, the different people sometimes remembered it differently and this becomes clear because they are outright contradicting each other.

What I didn’t like so much was that the minor characters didn’t get a chance to really shine and have more characteristics besides a single thing that was important for the story (Camila and her loyalty; Eddy and his anger), but it was a small price to pay because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

  1. One of the 6Degrees started with this book this year. I think it was when the 6degrees started using books I’d never read, never heard of or would only read if I was dead and burning in hell.

    Glad it didn’t take that for you to read this 😀

  2. I’m so glad you read this! You know it’s one of my favorites! Also, you made a really good point about the minor characters. I hadn’t thought of that, but you are absolutely right, especially about Eddy. Maybe the show will help flesh those characters out a little more.

      1. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it and a signed copy is even better!

        I also really enjoy reading about fake bands – even more so than reading about real band for some reason.

  3. Great review! Glad to see that you ended up really enjoying this one too and it is such a shame that the music wasn’t real because I kept wanting to google their tracks as I was reading. I actually followed along with the audiobook and it’s probably one of my favourites because it’s full cast and made the book even better imo!
