I'm struggling with this book. I'm about 100 pages in and not into it all. Does it pivk up? Thinking about throwing the towel in. It is sloeing downmy reading.
I'm really torn on this book. And I feel like I'm in the minority in not all-out loving it. Every review I've seen has been amazing so I went into this thinking THIS is going to be my favorite book of 2019. Especially since I love this author's other work.
I was really digging it when I started it, I loved the way it was written and I loved how we got to hear from so many different characters. But about 1/2 way through I found myself so bored. Maybe it's because I'm not super interested in the music making process?
I just felt like it turned into the same thing on repeat- Daisy and Billy hate each other, fight, write a lyric, Daisy gets high, Billy gets mad at Daisy for being high, Eddie is mad at everyone all the time. And then little snippets from other characters. And all of this on repeat until the end of the book.
I really liked the way it ended though, it felt really satisfying. I just felt like it took a long way to get there.
I also loved all the female characters. They were so kickass and I felt like there was a woman every woman could identify with - a mother, a career gal, someone that felt lost, someone that just wanted love. I loved how badass and feminist all the women were so I loved reading about their stories.
Does anyone else feel this way? I'm glad I read it and feel that it's worth a read, I was just honestly, pretty bored in the middle section of the book and felt that it was just the same thing on repeat.
So I devoured this book in two days, it pulled me right into the 70s music scene. The discovery of the lyrics in the back was a delightful surprise. Anyone else just dying to hear that album now? And other than Fleetwood Mac (obvs), who do you imagine The Six to sound like?
So I'm new here and these usually aren't my types of books, but I'm trying something new. Cross my fingers, I'm pretty excited to see how this Book of the Month turns out.
I've been waiting for this!! So excited! I also found out that Reese Witherspoon is going to make it into a tv series on amazon :)
I guess I clicked too early and it showed that Daisy Jones & The Six was sold out after about a minute of it being shown. I was about to freak out until I refreshed the page a few times. Have been looking forward to this book for months!
