Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, read by Sara Arrington, Jennifer Beals, Arthur Bishop, Fred Berman, Benjamin Bratt, Jonathan Davis, Ari Fliakos, Holter Graham, Judy Greer, January Lavoy, Robinne Lee, Peter Larkin, Henry Leyva, P.J. Ochlan, Robert Petkoff, Alex Reid, Pablo Schreiber, Brendan Wayne, Julia Whelan, Nancy Wu and Oliver Wyman.

Everyone knows Daisy Jones and The Six.

They sold out arenas from coast to coast. Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy. But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now. 

This is the whole story, right from the beginning: the sun-bleached streets, the grimy bars on the Sunset Strip, knowing Daisy’s moment was coming. Relive the euphoria of success and experience the terror that nothing will ever be as good again. Take the uppers so you can keep on believing, take the downers so you can sleep, eventually. Wonder who you are without the drugs or the music or the fans or the family that prop you up. Make decisions that will forever feel tough. Find beauty where you least expect it. Most of all, love like your life depends on it and believe in whatever it is you’re fighting for.

It’s a true story, though everyone remembers the truth differently.

Bonus downloadable PDF included.

Incredible Performance!

For anyone who’s thinking about purchasing Daisy Jones and the Six. I would highly recommend listening to this audiobook instead of reading it yourself. The voice actors give such an interesting twist that you really get to experience how the characters personalities develop overtime.

Absolutely awesome

Not sure how to convey my thoughts on this other to say that it is a must. The narrators are so good that I forgot this was fiction and not some amazing documentary I was listening to. Highly recommend to anyone who is even a little passionate about music. I can feel a major slump to follow but so worth it ❤❤❤

Amazing Audible version

Daisy Jones and The Six - first up I have to say do yourself a favour - listen to the Audible version, it is absolutely AMAZING to listen to this story. With 15 narrators telling the story (yep - I went back to Amazon to look it up and counted once I started listening, as there were so many different voices!), it was mesmerising to listen to - and the narrators all do such a fantastic job with their characters.

The way the author wrote the story made it all the more fascinating to listen to, it really felt like I was listening to a documentary rather than a fictional story. I really enjoyed the way the story was told from the beginning. Alternating between the background story of The Six and their rise to fame, and the background of Daisy Jones, until they meet and then their story merges into the one. The story touches on many things you would expect from a famous rock band from the 70's, with the members trying to deal with their fame, addictions, love, loss, touring, being in each other's faces constantly - I was halfway through the Audible version when I also ordered myself a paperback copy, I just knew it was going to be amazing all the way through to the end, and I needed it for my bookshelf.

“This was made for audio”

I’m not sure wether I would have enjoyed this book half as much if I read it. Listening to it as an audiobook worked exceptionally well due to the array of characters and interview format. I really wondered at times if I was listening to a biography not a fictional band!

Best book so far

This is a book that benefits greatly from being read by so many characters. Faultless. I didn’t want it to end. Brilliant

May suit those in their 20s and 30s.

I read reviews as these are generally are good guide. The reviews of this title were quite good but I just don’t share the same view. I found the storyline weak. Just not for me.

Amazing book

One of my fav books. First multi character book I have heard read out- it brought the book alive and the readers did such a fantastic job in playing those roles. Highly recommended!!!!

More than just an AudiIo book

Can’t recommend this enough. Story draws you in and the multiple character parts in this version are so well cast and it feels more like an audio film than anything. I could not stop listening.

Cheesy

I listen to a lot of music biography audiobooks, and this popped up and it had good reviews, but it plays to music biz stereotypes, and the voices and accents of the actors sound modern not 60s/70s. It's pretty cheesy, If you are vaguely knowledgeable or care about the music of this time, then it probably isn't for you. I think Amazons algorithms got it wrong when they pointed it in my direction.

Broke my heart in the best way

I’m not a music person. I used to be though. At first I thought I’ll skip this book despite the hype because I didn’t really like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Jenkins Reid’s previous novel).

This however, really truly blew my socks off. I felt I was in my twenties again, following a band and wanting to be in a band. If you think this is about music, you’re right. But it’s so much more than that. It’s about unrequited love, about saving yourself, about soulmates, and so much more. I loved it to my core. I bought a physical copy to keep in my library just so I can relive the feeling I get hanging out with Daisy Jones and The Six.

Choosing to listen to the book REALLY ‘amplified’ the experience. The book is written in oral history form, and it’s the best format for listening via audiobook.

Excellent narration, pretty boring plot

I really enjoyed the narration and documentary style delivery. The story of the band and their journey was pretty vanilla. I found Daisy Jones irritatingly whimsical.

Very Special

where does one begin..this book was certainly not of the genre I normally listen to but I feel quite privileged to have experienced it..as exprienced it seems more appropriate than listened to or read. this book will stay with me for a long time im sure and quite honestly if it doesn't touch you in some small way I would check you still have a pulse...

excellent narration but this is a pretty boring story. I was waiting and waiting for something exciting and it never came. Given the raving reviews I expected much more. I'm really disappointed.

😭 Absolutely amazing!

This book felt like one of those celeb documentaries and it follows a band that I wished existed. While The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a huge hit in 2018, this book has outshone it. I was so immersed with the characters and the story, it felt so real. I am still a bit emotional after that last hour but it definitely surprised me. This book was amazing, I highly recommend it to anyone, especially through an audiobook, I think if I had read the book physically it wouldn't have worked as it did with the audiobook.

Fabulous . A gem of an audiobook

This is a brilliant book really brought to life as an audiobook. Performances are all excellent, the story unique and so refreshing after the hundred clone detective, unthrilling thrillers and Gone Girl books that are everywhere right now.

I love the way this never tried to be a story where all worked out well, it was just an honest account of a band that was believable. I would have loved it to have gone on a bit longer.
