    A Reese's Book Club + Hello Sunshine on Audible Pick

    "My March pick is here! It’s Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and it ROCKS. Literally. The story centers on the meteoric rise of a rock band in the '70s and its lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne, whose connection is as electric as the music they make together. It’s sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, people!! And the very best part?! Hello Sunshine is turning this into a TV show with Amazon Studios...so stay tuned for more updates!" (Reese Witherspoon)  

    A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup.

    Daisy is a girl coming of age in LA in the late '60s, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ’n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s 20, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road. Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

    The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the '70s. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

    Includes a PDF of song lyrics from the book.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Raw, emotive, and addictively voyeuristic, Daisy Jones & The Six is imbued with the same anguished heart that fuels the very best rock ‘n’ roll. Like my favorite albums, this book will live with me for a very long time.” (Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus)

    “An explosive, dynamite, down-and-dirty look at a fictional rock band told in an interview style that gives it irresistible surface energy...although the real power of this delicious novel is at its tender beating heart. It’s an anthem and a ballad and a marvel.” (Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Perfect Couple

    Was ganz Besonderes

    Viel darüber gelesen hatte ich nicht, als ich dieses Buch gekauft habe. Deshalb war mir auch lange nicht klar, dass die Band tatsächlich fiktiv ist. Man kann keine Fotos googeln und keine Musik auf U-Tube suchen....
    Ich fand die Geschichte und ihre Aufmachung wunderbar und anders. Es ist ein wilder Ritt durch die 70-er. Obgleich ich schon viel intensivere Liebesgeschichten gelesen habe, ich Daisy wegen Ihrer ausnahmlos und unentschuldigbar narzistischen und egozentrischen Art nicht ausstehen konnte und obwohl ich fand, dass es ein paar zuviele epische Momente gab, hat mir das Buch sehr gefallen. Viele netten Menschen und gute Unterhaltung in einem interessanten Schreibstil vereint: ein Buch das bleibt.

    Different but the best audio book ever!

    The story is very good, it has food for thought and the performance is incredible. It is different than other audiobook with the different readers, but it could not be otherwise for this book.

    The first book in my life I read twice in a row

    This is such an amazing book. You will wonder if the band was real or not, and to tell you the truth, I still refuse to believe they were not real, just as I refuse to believe Evelyn Hugo wasn't real. TJR knows how to get those characters alive and close to our hearts, so you can cry and laugh with them. This is the first book in my life that I listened to twice in a row.

    Another amazing book from Taylor Jenkins Reid!

    This book was so different and intriguing. You really have a feeling to be seating right next to the characters and relive everything with them! It was amazing!
