As band ‘Daisy Jones & The Six’ breaks up, let’s break down new series


Whether you would rather watch a show or read a book, “Daisy Jones & The Six” allows you to enjoy both options.

Best-selling novel “Daisy Jones & The Six” has been turned into a limited series starring big names like Sam Claflin, Riley Keough and Suki Waterhouse. The novel was released in March 2019 and the series exactly four years later. 

The first three episodes were released to Prime Video on March 2, then three more the following Thursday and two more the following weeks until all 10 episodes aired.

The series follows the world famous band, Daisy Jones & The Six, and what led to their breakup after their sold-out show at Soldier Field in Chicago. 

If you love a series with lots of drama, relationships and fighting, “Daisy Jones & the Six” is definitely worth your watch. It keeps watchers engaged and interested because there is always something prompting arguments and disagreements within the band.

Both the novel and series are formatted in an interview style. In the book, the band members are individually interviewed on what went down after returning 40 years later, but in the series, only a 20 year gap falls between the ending of the band and the interviews.

Author of the novel, Taylor Jenkins Reid, has also published other best-sellers like “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo,” so when she announced the TV series adaption of “Daisy Jones & The Six”, fans were ecstatic.  

I watched the show before the book and I loved it so much; I immediately bought the book and read it in less than three days. All of the episodes had intense cliffhangers that kept me wondering what would come next. Not only was the acting amazing, but the whole cast even learned how to play music and produce an outstanding album for the series.

Whether you are watching the series for the first time or you read the novel four years ago, you are sure to enjoy both ways this story is being told.
