I loved this book right from the start, the author’s writing style, the book’s documentary feel, the quirky yet believable characters, the depiction of love, marriage and motherhood -the good, the bad and the ugly of it all. I honestly loved every word and though I have never read the same book twice I am tempted to do so. Well done!
The story builds - you have to stay with it. Character development was slower than I like. Lacked lush details, with that this book would pop into the brilliant category. Overall a solid read with a few gripping, teary eyed lines. Lyrics at the end were a fantastic touch!
Seriously all that angst, silliness and chaos and they don’t even sleep together. I wish I hadn’t wasted my Money.
That’s all I’m saying.
I loved this book! The laughs, truth, exploration of talent and fame. And most of all, the life lessons hidden in wit and great dialogue
A beautiful take on complex topics of love, lies, and the power within ourselves to fight the darkness that knocks on the door in the form of what we don’t want to admit. Easy quick read, with enough emotion to wonder where you fit in between daisy and billy, and how it applies to your own life.
Loved it!! A refreshing read. Definitely not your typical store line. Loved the way it all came together at the end!!
Wish I hadn’t spent the $ on this book.
So different. So good. I couldn’t put it down. Obsessed
Boring and predictable the same stuff happened on every page and the characters are completely interchangeable! This buzz is not well deserved.
I really liked this book it’s a little different to what I’m use to reading in terms of the interview style this one is written as. I had a love/hate thing for Billy I think he was a bit of an a** hole in the beginning of the book. I found Camila really annoying. All other characters I liked. Daisy to me was the best part of this book. I just really wished a bit more of her was told at the end of the book. I hope there is a sequel to this book. I would really like to know if Billy did ended up calling Daisy. (Spoiler!) The ending to me felt unfinished. That’s the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I’m really looking forward to seeing the adaptation of the book becoming a show.
I loved “The 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” the characters ached and went through profound experiences, I cried. I recommended that book.
In this new book the format stops any creativity. the characters are who they say they are through interviews. One dimensional. A better read would be Linda Ronstadt’s “Simple Dreams” at least she was there. This book is a mash up of The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, a bit of the Doors, thrown together with a cross between Janis Joplin and Linda Ronstadt who the author borrows more than just a look from. I expected a hell of a lot more. The real artists are a much better read. It was predictable and certainly doesn’t leave you guessing. I just began skipping pages. Read old interviews of Rolling Stone from the 70’s and you’ll find a better read.
Too bad, I liked this author.
