Hello Everyone!! It has been so long I posted a review. But I was so busy with just starting work etc. Hence couldn’t devote much time to reading but I am glad that I finally got time this weekend to read and write a review.
Daisy Jones & The Six
A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up. Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity…until now.
Written as the transcription of an interview, it goes back and forth between band members (and those close to the band) and walks us through the making of the band and its ultimate demise. In the same fashion as author Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, there is a nice twist at the end. This is the story of how Daisy Jones and the Six came to be and also how they split apart. It is a story of love, family, addictions, and difficult decisions in the world of 1970’s rock and roll.
This story is heavier than I expected and tackles difficult topics. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a master in writing creative strong, realistic and honest characters that really show the different sides and forms of love. The tension, connections, and heartbreak pours out of the pages and I felt everything so deeply. The many poignant, heart felt lines and moments in this novel have been repeating in my mind since I closed the last page. I’ll end this with an example.
“I wish someone had told me that love isn’t torture. Because I thought love was this thing that was supposed to tear you in two and leave you heartbroken and make your heart race in the worst way. I thought love was bombs and tears and blood. I did not know that it was supposed to make you lighter, not heavier. I didn’t know it was supposed to take only the kind of work that makes you softer. I thought love was war. I didn’t know it was supposed to… I didn’t know it was supposed to be peace.”
I read this book mostly in one sitting. You can whip through it quickly and it will make you want to listen to old school rock-n-roll when you are done, that is for sure!
Have you read this book ?? Are you planning to read this book ?? Let’s chat in the comments section . XOXO
