Surprise punch
A trip back 50 years to the LA music scene sounds like a great adventure with all the hot 70s music groups. And it was that, and more. Weaving my way through the story I was focusing on keeping the characters and relationships straight. I was not aware that the author was planting more than a simple tale of a rock group beneath the surface of my soul while I was not watching. When I got to the end of the book I was surprisingly emotionally affected by the revelations and fond of many of the characters I thought I would not relate to. I’m going to reread several parts of the book now that the characters are under my skin. I’d recommend Daisy Jones and the Six to book groups and friends.

I liked this in spite of its fornat
DAISY JONES & THE SIX may take some getting used to at first. It is not in a novel's usual format. Taylor Jenkins Reid's intention was to write a novel that comes across as a documentary. But understand: this is a novel, fiction. It took me about a quarter of the book to decide I liked it.

Something else that may lead to misunderstanding is the cover. That is a picture of Daisy Jones, but the book is really about the whole band, including Daisy. It would have been nice to see, instead, the back cover of their hit album.

Every band member, including Daisy, tells their story. A few others, such as the writer for ROLLING STONE and The Six's manager, also chime in.

Daisy is a fabulous singer. The Six is a fabulous band. But, until they get together, neither has a hit song much less a hit album. Together they are magic.

But just about everyone in the band, especially Daisy, has problems they deal with. Probably, their biggest problem is all their drinking and drugging. They tell us about what they accomplish in spite of the problems and what brings them down because of them.

Somehow, Reid made me like this story a lot in spite of its format that I didn't like at first. I would suggest, though, that she include at the front of the book a list of characters with who each is.
