Have you ever read a book that is more of a dream, a Hollywood historical, or a scintillating treat for fans of pop culture fused with history? A story of love, heartbreak, drugs, alcohol, fame, success, rehab, friends, and above all, this music.

What happens when, at the pinnacle of success, one mixes work and family life with interpersonal relationships? Exactly what happened in the case of Daisy Jones & the Six Read and delve into one of the greatest roller coasters of all time – Daisy Jones & The Six

You know, I recently read a masterpiece. An incredible, intoxicating, and truly unforgettable book. The moment I finished it, I knew I would have to pursue it, return to the beginning, and read it again. And again, and yet again, Daisy Jones & the Six, a story set in the mid-sixties, transported me to the iconic age of rock and roll. It was like my mind, at one point, refused to believe

This story is unreal.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is a master storyteller with a diverse range of content. Awesome quotes, love, loss, heartbreaks, glamour, glitzy scandals—this one was full of layers that kept unravelling at different points.

Addiction and substance abuse have been depicted in all their ominous glory, strong in element but delicate in nature. Billy and Daisy are obsessed with drawing. From glitz to drugs, expose the home truths about substance abuse. I also sensed a general aura of recovery that can be achieved by addressing the power and dynamics of these issues.

This is a soulful piece of writing that is both reflective and engaging, with so much to offer, from drugs and abuse to loss and love. The characters were multi-dimensional, each bringing his own hue to the main plot. The authenticity of these characters had me relate to how similar even our inner voice sounds, becoming crystal clear yet complex to comprehend sometimes. The essence of this one for me was loving someone while being unhappy with the way things were.

I must commend the vibrance, the energy, the complete zest, the zeal, and the glamour of the whole plot. It made me want to be there and live in the moment, and how! The simplicity and brilliance owing to the fact that the complete highs and lows of one’s career and life were depicted beautifully and realistically through this one The delicate heartstrings it manages to tug all at once were the show-stoppers. Yes, wise and witty, intelligent and sassy, inspiring as well as devastating, Reid’s skilful writing transformed this work of fiction into a timeless tale so tremendous and epic that it was difficult to believe it wasn’t a real relic. Crawling into your skin, be it the pop and music, the characters of Billy, Daisy, Jimmy, Greg, Lori, or any other, I was very much along with them, breathing and living through the emotions of each, like octaves on a musical note, wavering on and off with the highs and lows of their lives. 

As the plot begins with Daisy, the daughter of wealthy but inattentive parents, her talent, rock obsession, great voice, and entrancing energy get noticed. At the same time, Billy and Graham Dunne, the members of The Six Band, get joined by her, working their way toward making the band a hit. But, with such mercurial singers and performers, there will inevitably be competing artistic visions, and it remains to be seen whether the incredible collaboration will last and create history, or whether it will dissipate and perish.

 With its unique manner of splaying multiple perspectives on history, memory, and secrets too, this is an amazing read, and it comes as no surprise that this one has been adapted into a TV series too. This is a must-read; make a note of it.

Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.

From the moment Daisy walked barefoot onto the stage at the Whisky, she and the band were a sensation.

Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They played sold-out arenas from coast to coast.

Then, on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down.

They were lovers, friends, brothers. But they were also rivals.

This is the story of their legendary rise and irrevocable fall. A story of ambition, desire, heartbreak and music.

Everyone was there. Everyone remembers it differently. Nobody knew why they split. Until now…
