  1. This does sound fun! I like multiple viewpoints and I think it works well for a novel about fame – I read Alison Lurie’s The Truth About Lorin Jones as a teen and it stayed with me.!

    That quote about love and torture hit home too. I’ve young nieces and when I hear certain songs I just think, this isn’t what I want them growing up believing. So I spoil all their opportunities for self-indulgent fun by telling them the singer is wrong and that anyone who makes you feel so rubbish is not the one. I hope some of it penetrates 😀

  2. I really liked the book a lot. I read an interview with the author and she said she was inspired to write the book based on seeing a few songs sung by Fleetwood Mac during a concert when the musicians were showing emotions to match the songs. It dawned on her how hard that must be to do every concert, especially if the song is about some sad event in their life, to sing about the feelings. I loved that aspect of the book. Here is my review: Daisy Jones and the Six If you want to take a look at my thoughts.

    • o interesting because I saw the Pavarotti doco this morning and when Bono (from U2) was interviewed about Pavarotti he said “The music has been performed thousands of times but what makes Pavarotti unique is that he allows his heart to break every single time…” and that seems true when you watch video of him performing.

  4. I loved this book. Before I opened it, I had seen a review that predicted that no-one reading it would be able to resist googling the band and the songs – they were right! Really looking forward to the TV series. 🙂
