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.

Love love love Daisy Jones and the Six!

Loved it al!
I began listening to it thinking it was a biography in real life and when I began researching, it was a pleasant surprise that it wasn’t.
Great to listen too and would love for this to be a movie or tv series!
Reminded me a lot of Almost Famous, the movie.

Great read!

Loved this book. It took a bit of getting used to the ‘interview’ style narrative, but once I was into it I was hooked. Excellent voice performances!

I found this pretty boring

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.

The book is alive!

I honestly don’t think I would have loved this book as much as I do if I had read this physically, the actors just brought the characters to life and made me really believe they were real life people and that I could go listen to their albums anytime I wanted too (I really wish I could) I highly recommend anyone considering buying this audiobook to do it, you won’t regret it

Incredible

This was incredible!
I am not generally a fan of contemporary fiction, but this was something else! A must-read, for sure.

A beautiful caress of the ears and mind.

I’ve recently struggled with fiction audio books, mainly down to the lack of different voices reading them or the lack of versatility of the one person doing the job. This book has answered all my prayers, with outstanding performances from all the cast involved. I’m literally chomping at the bit so see this turned into a mini series. Listen immediately!

A must-read for Fleetwood Mac fans!

Daisy Jones & The Six is another stellar contribution to the world of literature from Taylor Jenkins Reid. She has already become my favourite new author, and both Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones my favourite books of 2019 so far!

TJR has an incredible knack for creating these wonderful vivid, realistic characters. There are no superheroes or pantomime villains here: the characters behaviour how real people would if they had found themselves in the craziest of life circumstances, being apart of the world's biggest rock band, and yet they still read as painfully relatable.

It definitely helped that the book is loosely based on Fleetwood Mac, one of my favourite bands of all time, and their making of the 'Rumours' album, because I honestly felt like I was reading a real-life account of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. The oral history narrative style worked perfectly for this story and it was interesting to navigate through the band members 'Present Day' recollections of their experiences, trying to decipher fact from rose-coloured recollection.

I would recommend Daisy Jones to anyone. Even if it's not your preferred genre or plot, you will definitely connect with this very beautiful and heart-breaking story.

Perfection

Emotional, human and perfectly evokes the spirit of 70s rock. Jenkins Reid completely captures the documentary genre and the cast do a phenomenal job bringing it to life!

Superb!

Thoroughly enjoyed this. It was recommended by Reece Witherspoon X Hello Sunshine Book Club and I am so glad that that it was.

Fantastically told, via a full cast of characters. It made it seem all so real, like this actually happened. It made me feel like I know what it would have been like to live in that era, in that environment.

Each and every character grows on you, and it was as if you knew them like an old friend.

The 70’s eh? What a time to be alive?!

Just a superb story.

Transported into a different era

Thoroughly enjoyed this! The story is believable and I finished it in less than 24 hours. A much faster read than 'the seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo' by the same author which I also liked a lot. Like 'the seven husbands...' this audiobook also transports the listener back to a different era. The interview format worked very well on audio and the cast of narrators did a spectacular job. I thought the last few lines were a bit over the top but otherwise definitely one of the best books I listened to in the last three months. I especially liked the portrayal of the female characters Kamila and Karen. They were interesting and complex. The narrator reading Daisy was outstanding in embodying both her strength and vulnerability.
