It was so worth the hype.
This book has been everywhere on Instagram this past month and I seriously mean everywhere. In my feed, in my stories, in my explore feed and everyone was talking about how brilliant it was. This is probably one of the most hyped books I’ve ever seen. Like, ever. And let me tell you, it was so worth the hype.
Some books you stay up until the early hours of the morning because you can’t put it down. And this was one of those books.
It follows the fictionalised story of singer Daisy Jones and the band The Six and how they came together to create something incredible just to split up months later. The entire thing is set out in an interview or screenplay style, which I thought I’d find extremely annoying but it actually worked really well for this type of book. So much of their personality came across, and it got to point I could tell who was talking without having to look at who was.
This is probably one of the only books I’ve read and loved where I didn’t like any of the character’s that much. Or that I didn’t like their actions that much. I don’t know, I loved and hated them in different ways. This book is a great example of showing real people, and how the world, and character’s personalities, aren’t black and white. This isn’t a black and white book. The characters are complicated, which makes liking them or disliking them complicated.
I will say though, that the chemistry that was written between Daisy and Billy… I felt it. I could feel it seeping through the pages. I really felt it in my heart. I’d go as far to say that Daisy and Billy have the most chemistry I’ve ever felt in a book.
I read this book in a day. I would’ve read it in one sitting if I didn’t have to do work. It gripped me so powerfully that when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. This book reminds me of the character Daisy Jones herself; you can’t help but love her.
