Daisy Jones & The Six, Week 4

Welcome to the final discussion of Daisy Jones & the Six.

Did you like the end of the book? Were you surprised by the very last page? I definitely was surprised about how everything turned out. 

The tour went about as well as I thought it would. Billy and Daisy made great music together, but they were so toxic when they were near each other. It was sad to see how they just couldn't be in the same room with each other without fireworks exploding. It was sad, too, how Eddie seemed to always have one foot out the door, and Pete wasn't much better. They were all just so unhappy with each other--I think they would have benefitted from counseling. It's a wonder that they were able to perform at any of their concerts. 

Could you believe how things went with Nicky and Daisy? I knew he was bad news, but I didn't expect for him to take such poor care of Daisy when she almost overdosed. Weren't you glad when he was finally out of the picture? 

Were you surprised by how Karen and Graham's relationship ended? Their storyline was really sad. I thought they were a really great couple, but they had different goals and wanted different things. I was really disappointed with how they ended things and how they hurt each other so much. 

The band experienced so many things after their album came out. They won a Grammy, they performed at SNL, they played at sold-out arenas. Could you believe that they were able to achieve such great things even though they weren't a band for that long? It was almost unbelievable how they were able to achieve so much in so little time. They were superstars so quickly. 

Weren't you glad that Billy and Daisy didn't have an affair. I think it would have ruined the book for me if they had gotten together. I was glad that Billy was able to be true to Camilla and honor his commitment he made to her. Didn't you half expect Daisy and Billy to really ruin things and act on their passionate feelings? Billy worked so hard to be so good throughout the whole book. Were you surprised that he took a drink near the end of the book? I was glad that it didn't end up causing him to relapse. It was a good thing that that one fan was near him during the whole episode. 

Were you surprised when the band broke up? I wasn't surprised, but I was surprised by the way they broke up. It just seemed like they all decided seperately to be finished and just walked away. There wasn't any big dramatic moment. Do you think Daisy would have walked away from the band if it hadn't been for Camila? What did you think of Daisy and Camila's conversation? Was Camila fair in all of her points? 

What did you think about where everyone ended up? I was really surprised that Daisy ended up leaving the music industry. I just assumed she would be a big star on her own, but maybe being in the spotlight like that was too hard for her in recovery. I think it makes sense that Billy became a song writer. He seemed to really enjoy writing music, and I'm sure he liked writing songs without getting input from anyone else. I'm glad that Karen stayed a musician, and I think Eddie becoming a producer was a good idea. Would you have put any of the characters on a different path? 

Did I miss anything in this last section that you thought was important? What was your favorite part of the entire book?
