    Real

    I picked up my phone and texted a friend to ask why I knew nothing of this band. Lol. It’s genuine and heartbreaking and I was pulled into this world so deeply, I’d forgotten which section I’d bought the book. Everyone has this story in their heart - someone they loved so profoundly that their world turned with every move they made. Those connections fundamentally change us. This book tells that story beautifully. Thank you, Taylor Jenkins Reid.

    It's Fine...

    I wanted to give this one star for how much I didn't enjoy it, but it's a well written book if this is your genre. It's not mine. I don't like the interview style. The only interesting thing about the interview format was the surprise involving the "author". It's set in the seventies, but could something interesting besides drugs, alcohol and addiction happen? Why couldn't they jump off the roof? I was very bored in this book and couldn't wait for it to end. I cheered when it was over.

    It's okay!

    I usually love Taylor Jenkins Reid, but the style of this novel didn't really suit my style. It was written as interviews from the band's members throughout the whole book. It got a little monotonous, especially self destructive Daisy who I didn't think would live to see the end of the book. The ending had a bit of a twist which I really liked, and saved the book for me, but it took a lot of perseverance to get there and I almost gave up before I got there.

    Soft rock

    I agree with everything in Mel's review. It felt like a teen lit novel at most times. Not very 'rock n roll' at all, and not a very interesting story either.

    Brilliant read!

    Love the story and especially because I was a young adult in the early seventies and remember those rock 'n roll days. Found it difficult at first to get into the documentary style writing of the b00k but got past it quickly as I became immersed in the story. Hope the mini-series does the book justice but if Reece Witherspoon is involved it will!
