Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of those books I have a hard time rating. It was written as a documentary-type interview. So it really was having a story *told* to me, rather than being immersed *in* the story. That made it hard for me to connect with the characters at first. I got the audiobook and listened to it when I worked out or was in the car and that helped immensely! It helped give every character a voice and personality, which carried over to when I was reading the actual book. I'm so glad I did that because I enjoyed the book so much more. Man, this book was totally an inside look into why we say "Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll." It was gritty and sad and lonely- with some hope and happiness thrown in. It was kind of like reading a memoir of a child actor - they did drugs, drank a ton, and made a lot of bad choices- but turned out ok eventually. I wasn't blown away like a lot of people were, but I did find myself drawn in and needing to finish it. 4 stars it is!
