Set in the 1970's rock and roll era, this story follows the fictional band The Six and up and coming "it" girl on the scene Daisy Jones. A reporter is the teller of the story, by way of interviews with key players from the past who saw and lived through the era of "Daisy Jones and The Six".
An intriguing and fascinating glimpse into the heedy world of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll. I was picturing some of the key players as members of Fleetwood Mac, although the story is fictional.
This story is shared between three bloggers, which is quite a relevant topic in today's social media lifestyle. The three women are all connected in way or another, and all three have been nominated for the "Blog-ahh award" and that is where the competition between the ladies becomes even more intense.
This book is a fantastic read and one I just did not want to put down until finished!
