I received this book for free from BookSparks as part of their Winter Reading Challenge.
I was really looking forward to reading this book because I heard nothing but great things about it and the author. Unfortunately, for me, it did not live up to all the hype.
Basically, I was so bored throughout the first half of the book. The book is written in interview format, which is an interesting way to tell a story, but it made for a dull read in the beginning. I wasn’t able to become attached to the characters and didn’t feel any emotional connection to them. It wasn’t until page 200 that I became more interested in the story and characters.
Additionally, a lot of the story felt generic and to me the story felt fairly simple. I was expecting some sort of magic spark to really pull me in while reading, but I never felt it.
As for Daisy Jones, I didn’t really like her. To me, she felt like a manic pixie dream girl, especially in the first half.
I did enjoy the ending, which I know some people did not like that much. I also liked the reveal of the author. I did not see that one coming. Also, the interview format did work well in the second half of the book. I liked that we will never truly know exactly what happened.
Overall, I did not enjoy the book as much as I thought I would, but don’t let that deter you from reading it. It wasn’t perfect for me, but it may be perfect for you!
