This book rocked and totally lived up to the hype. This is the story of how a band formed, found success and fame, and disintegrated because of personal dynamics. There’s some ego, plenty of drugs, and an abundance of passion. What made this exceptional was the confessional retrospective style. The author did a superb job giving distinct voices to all the characters, and as they shared their recollections of their time in the band, they offered different (and often conflicting) perspectives. Daisy Jones is larger than life, front man Billy Dunne is a force to be reckoned with, and I loved the keyboardist Karen and her tumultuous relationship with Billy’s brother Graham. Producers, journalists, and other insiders add their observations on the band’s meteoric rise and its catastrophic demise. I loved every page and felt like I was partying along with Daisy Jones & The Six at the tail end of the 70’s.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via the Amazon Vine program.

Patricia Harman Hi Julie, Just saw your name pop up on Goodreads with this review,. It sounds like a great book. I admire you for so much reading.
I read a lot but mostly research for something I'm writing.. Did you get a copy of my new book, Once a Midwife, the third in the Hope River series? It's set in the 1940s just after WW2 and features the same midwife, Patience, her veterinarian husband, and pal Bitsy. If you'd like a copy, I'll get you one. Patricia Harman
