Waterstones Says

Intoxicatingly written, with a cast of characters to instantly fall for, Reid's debut is a nostalgia-fuelled trip into the hedonistic world of 70's L.A and the stratospheric rise and fall of a band whose sound defined an era.     

For a while, Daisy Jones & The Six were everywhere. Their albums were on every turntable, they sold out arenas from coast to coast, their sound defined an era. And then, on 12 July 1979, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.

They were lovers and friends and brothers and rivals. They couldn't believe their luck, until it ran out. This is their story of the early days and the wild nights, but everyone remembers the truth differently.

The only thing they all know for sure is that from the moment Daisy Jones walked barefoot, on to the stage at the Whisky, the band were irrevocably changed. Making music is never just about the music. And sometimes it can be hard to tell where the sound stops and the feelings begin.

Unique, inventive and stylish...It's exciting and intoxicating, and I loved the effortlessly cool Daisy Jones. It is a novel I'll revisit regularly. - Woman & Home

I totally fell for Taylor Jenkins Reid’s engaging recreation of the 70s rock 'n' roll scene . . . this novel has a lot of heart. - Good Housekeeping

Part juicy celebrity tell-all, part A Star Is Born . . . Be prepared to read it in a single night. - Vogue, Best New Books 2019

I devoured DAISY JONES AND THE SIX in a day, falling head over heels for it. Taylor Jenkins Reid transported me into the magic of the 70's music scene in a way I'll never forget. The characters were beautifully layered and complex... Daisy and the band captured my heart, and they're sure to capture yours too. - Reese Witherspoon

Fascinating . . . you can't wait to find out what happens next . . . Everyone should read this. - Claudia Winkleman, RADIO 2

The heady haze of the 70s music scene, and a perfectly flawed Daisy, combine to create a fresh, rock n roll read. I loved it. - Ali Land

Taylor Jenkins Reid is a stunning writer whose characters are unforgettable and whose stories are deeply emotional. Her new book is her most gripping yet. - Emily Giffin

Utterly believable . . . fabulously entertaining. - The Times

I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon. - Erin Kelly

A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess, one made all the more enjoyable by being written as an oral biography. It's inventive, persuasive and completely satisfying. - Dylan Jones

I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun. - The High Low

The characters leap off the page, seducing you with their dramas, and making you wish the band was real. Five stars. - Heat

Once in a blue moon you get to discover a book you end up pressing upon many other people to read. Taylor Jenkins Reid has got every nuance, every detail exact and right. I loved every word. - Paul Rees

A book that reads like an addictive Netflix documentary meets A Star Is Born - despite being utterly fictional . . . It's also a call-to-arms that when you find your niche, don't doubt, embrace it. - Emerald Street

With Daisy Jones, Taylor Jenkins Reid has conjured up a legend both on the page and off. A zeitgeist book for 2019, read it before the series becomes the next must-see. - Stylist

DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a transporting novel - at once a love story, a glimpse into the combustible inner workings of a rock-and-roll band, and a pitch-perfect recreation of the music scene of the Fleetwood Mac era. You'll never want it to end. - Cecelia Ahern

So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn't put it down. - Edith Bowman

With wonderfully layered and complex characters, Reid's latest novel is brilliantly written and hard to put down. - Psychologies

Utterly refreshing - and too charming not to love - Image

I completely forgot that Daisy Jones and The Six was a fictional book and not a real story. The cast of characters with different narrators portraying them made it feel so real. One of my favourite audiobooks of all time. - Pop Sugar

Chances are that by the end of the year you’ll want to track down Daisy’s music and play it, even though the fabulous 1970s songbird never existed. - Writing Magazine

A compelling read that opens the lid on the music industry's dark side - Sunday Times Magazine
