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.

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...

Stunning

This is a stunningly beautiful book, that will have you laughing, crying and wishing you had been part of the band. A refreshing read and one for everyone to enjoy.

😭 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.

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.

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.
